Members of WOW WI Book Group met Tuesday 8th January to discuss "When God was a Rabbit" by Sarah Winman. This tale of childhood, family and the deep bond between a brother and sister was enjoyed by the group. The book is written in two halves and the writing style was felt to vary a lot between the first whimsical first half and the adult life of the siblings in the second half. Part two involves the 9/1 tragedy, bereavement and how friends become part of a family. It was felt to read like 2 separate books with an unexplained years gap between the two parts, but overall was a popular read.
Next months Book is "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold- (dont be put off reading the book if you have only seen the film.) Tuesday 12th February
WOW WI Book Group is open to all full WOW WI Members and meets on the second Tuesday of each month in Loves Cafe West Street, at 7.30 pm.
