What led you to pick up this book?
The idea of a novel based on a reading group attracted me.

Describe the plot without giving anything away.
"The real, hidden subject of a book group discussion, is the book group members themselves." Margaret Attwood.

What did you think of the characters?
I found it hard to get the characters clear in my mind for quite a while but that could be because of all the other things I was doing while reading this. I felt I should make a list of characters and who they were.

What did you think about the style?
Apart from the above criticism I found the style quite easy going But it was not a book that I would rush back to.

Would I recommend it?
Not especially but I couldn't be sure I've given it a fair crack of the whip.

ELIZABETH NOBLE lives in Guildford, Surrey, with her husband and two daughters and this was her first novel.
