Wimbledon Village Reading Group Reads

Wimbledon Village Reading Group discusses a wide range of books from thrillers & literary fiction to history, biography and popular culture (but no chick lit so far!). Infrequent 'political readings' focus on contemporary politics. This board gives a flavour of the range of books we read. Monthly meets are always in Wimbledon Village but we have occasionally forays to literary events etc elsewhere. Interested in joining? Visit us at https://www.meetup.com/Wimbledon-Village-Book-Group/

Read in July 2016.  The book, which most members thoroughly enjoyed even if they did find the premise quite chilling, resulted in a fabulous discussion & exchange of views on topics as diverse as spying, the cold war, Brexit, the Gun Powder Plot and family life.  Wilson's style was thought to be quite cold and remote, distancing the reader from events, adding to the sense of exclusion and powerlessness and thus fully fitting for the narrative.  Votes up as a good book club read.
