The last meeting of the VILLAGE BOOKS Book Club took place on the 9th of August and we discussed 'Sunset Park' by Paul Auster.

There was a general consensus that the book started well. The main character, Miles, was initially intriguing but interest was lost in the wordiness of the book which became too cerebral. One lost sympathy with the characters and became less involved with their stories.

For me, it wasn't as good as other Paul Auster books such as 'Brooklyn'.

The next meeting will be on the 13th of September and we'll be discussing 'The Paris Wife' by Paula McLain.
