LLBG - July

Sorry for the delay in posting this up.  These past few weeks have been so busy!  Anyway, Lowestoft Library Book Group met on Tuesday 30th July, and discussed A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry.

I'm afraid to say that I didn't read it.  I read about 50 pages, so I can't comment on the story at all.  I do enjoy reading, but the book has over 600 pages, and the writing is really really tiny!  I know that shouldn't stop me reading a book, but somehow it does.  

From what I can gather, it's a book about a few people whose lives cross.  This does sound like my kind of book, as I like things that make connections.  Maybe one day I'll pick it up and give it another go.

It's set in India in the 70s and 80s, and apparently outlines some of the terrible things that took place there during this time.

I'm sorry for the uselessness of this post, and shame on me for not reading the book!

In August we will be having a meeting, but there is no book.  This is because it's the day after the Bank Holiday, and people are usually away.  So if anyone fancies coming along, they're more than welcome, and we will be discussing books that we've been reading over the summer.  It's on Tuesday 27th August, 7-9pm, in the Navigator Room at Lowestoft Library.

  1. You gave the book a shot. I put down LOTS of books I start; they simply don't hold my attention. It's sad that you were annoyed by the small print. I only read ebooks now. I'm retired and find its important to be able to change the print size so my old eyes can see more easily. Maybe you could try an e-book reader so you don't get stuck on tiny print again. Have a lovely weekend! :-)
