(Co-ordinator Carole Jones on 01392 811123)

The discussion of Michel Faber’s futuristic novel, “The Book of Strange New Things” proved to be very interesting for many reasons. The book is long and the narrative slowly-paced at times but it seemed to get under our skin. It paints a terrifying picture of Earth’s future, which is all too believable and depressing, while the descriptions of the attempt to prepare another planet for human habitation are well-imagined and convincing. Underlying it all are the issues of colonisation, people and relationships under pressure, the role of God and faith in the lives of the travellers and the indigenous aliens and, ultimately, what it means to be human - a thought-provoking read.

Our next book is “The Island that Dared : Journeys in Cuba” by Dervla Murphy. Attention Cuban Airwaves! This might be the book for you.
