Read for our f2f bookclub meeting last month, this book triggered a fantastic, full-table, sleeves rolled up discussion. Which is always a very very good thing.
Whilst overall personally I thought this was a pretty good book, and a particularly interesting one to be reading in the week when our Prime Minister decided to take on the Leader of the Opposition in a long-overdue calling out of his behaviour, there were themes in the book that really really resonated.
There were also aspects that were less successful, as pointed out by members of the bookclub, why was their a need to connect Female Suffrage with Lesbian themes? Another element of the book that really raised some discussion was the ending - whilst some readers felt it was satisfactory, there was another group who found it disappointing. A cop-out for the villain if you like.
But, regardless of the minor nitpicks and some of the things that really worked, a long, fruitful and fascinating discussion. Great bookclub book.
