      I think most of us are well through the Leopard by now so would someone like to chose the next book.We will go with the first suggestion because it would take to long to put it to a vote. Is that okay 👌🏽

      Just finished The Leopard so many twists and turns and a great ending.  Anyone got a book in mind for our next read also who like to zoom when we come to discuss it?

      Just seen this post so I will happily get Leopard but I’m 2/3rd thru Funeral Games Mary Raynault so even though I’m a fast reader I’ll need a while to catch you up!

      Hi, I sent my message direct then saw I had to put it here. I suggest My Journey So Far by Andrew White. It’s an autobiography by an interesting and funny man. He has several illnesses one of which slows and affects his speech. I saw him being interviewed and liked him. He rises above the things that could hinder him. He has led a varied life that has touched many lives.

        Hi Sue, thanks for setting this up.   Read the leopard, which is not the type of book I would usually read.  Enjoyed the detective story and the who dunnit element, but really disappointed with the overall writing. I found it incredibly sexist – even  the so-called heroine had to be rescued by Harry on numerous occasions.   The writer seemed to love describing  the suffering of women at the hands of the murderer.  He may have described the deaths of a couple of men, but not in such vivid detail as the women who suffered.   I really dislike this kind of misogynistic writing and hope for better going forwards.

      Thank you Mandmayes for your review of The Leopard . I throughly enjoyed the book and think the author has a great imagination. I don’t feel it was in anyway sexist, after all the book was about Harry Hole so he had to be the hero. I found it funny and sad at times, struggled a bit with some of the Norwegian words but all in all a good read Got to admit I have fell in love with the Harry Hole series and will be buying more.

      I have a few that I’ve enjoyed recently, but a good one to add to the list is A Keeper by Graham Norton.

        Hi, I’ve just joined, would love to join this reading group when the next book is decided on.
        @loislane – what was Dumped Actually like? I’ve just downloaded Going Green by Nick Spalding I was chuckling by the end of the first page – good sign 🙂
        I read all sorts of books but fancied some humour.

          Honestly, I was laughing out loud with some of his descriptions, I thoroughly enjoyed it and think I will buy the book. Definitely going to read his other works. This year has been so depressing and just hasn’t stopped yet so a good chuckle out loud is therapeutic.
