On 9 October 2018, we enjoyed another interesting tíc book club gathering. Only three of us finished the book, but this did not prevent us from having a nice discussion among eleven book worms.

Some agreed that the style of writing is not the best, however being a historical novel, the author clearly spent a lot of time researching the topic and providing a story based on sound historical facts. We agreed that it is fascinating how the novel, which was written in 1938, fits with today’s world.

Anita also provided us with a historical and religious overview of Persia, which all of us thoroughly enjoyed. Some readers agreed that the content of the book would easily be condensed in much less than 500+ pages. Moreover, others have found the ending of the book rather unexpected or abstruse.

As usual, we also enjoyed a general chit-chat and swapped some books while enjoying hot tea, snacks and home-made pastry. We also chose a new book, titled “We all begin as Strangers”.
