Welcome to the Retire-At-Home Halton Book Club
We hope that you enjoyed Rules of Civility by Amor Towles! Thanks for sending your comments on the book, good and not-so-good. I think the general consensus is that the story started out strong, and then languished a bit when the author spent so much time allowing Eve to lament her situation.
I did like how the book made me think about how making a choice or decision, that seems inconsequential at the time it was made, can have a significant effect on everything that follows it. Overall, the mood of the story was indulgent and just what I needed to read.
ON TO THE NEXT BOOK!
We’ve chosen Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz for October. Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery? I’m excited to delve into the investigation. I’m also intrigued by the second layer of the story which involves the book publishing industry.
We’ll post updates each week to share our thoughts on the book as we read. Look for recipes inspired by the era and the characters!
