On Wednesday night, we had our latest book club meeting in which we discussed The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. It was a great discussion which lasted nearly the whole of the meeting for a change – I didn’t have chance to get started on my latest project!
The general consensus was that we liked the book very much and found the characterisation and setting particularly vivid. Here are just a few words from each of us that discussed the book:
Amy: Very atmospheric but a bit slow at times.
Hannah: Ethereal, surreal, and intriguing, I’m still pondering the ending.
Siân: Mysteriously enjoyable.
Zoe W: Took me a while to get into it but by the end I was finishing it in the middle of the night and sobbing.
Kate: I loved the fairy tale style of the book. The mystery kept me feeling intrigued and tense as there was a sense of foreboding throughout, no doubt helped by the forbidding Alaskan setting.
We had much discussion for our next book based on a slew of recommendations I gave! We talked about reading:
- A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
- The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
but in the end we settled on: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The next meeting will be scheduled soon for sometime in September so get reading and join us for the next book club meeting.
