Monday was our monthly book club meeting in which we reviewed Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre.
The story is about Sophie, who is very forgetful and often blacks out. One day she blacks out and does something horrible. Sophie goes on the run and so begins her new life and a new sequence of events.....
The story is a dark and twisted one but written in a fantastic way that you don't hate her but begin to feel sorry for her. As soon as you think you have the story figured out, it twists again to reveal something different
The ending is fabulous. I didn't and couldn't guess how it was going to end but I am glad it did
It is translated brilliantly from French by Frank Wynne
The next book is Beware The Cuckoo by Julie Newman, who visited us at the June book club meet
At the next meeting, on the 10th July, David Barker author of July's book Blue Gold will be joining us to tell us a bit about it
See you all soon x
