We next meet on Tuesday 4 July in the comfy chairs the foyer of the Village Hotel in Farnborough at 7.30pm. This time we chose two books to read, plus an extra one for those who’d like to (or have read all 21 Jack Reachers to date!)
A powerful novel about three women – judging each other, but also themselves. In all the noise of modern life, they need to find their own voice. Sometimes it’s ok not to follow the herd.
Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, Book 1)
This presents Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode: a righter of wrongs, the perfect action hero.
The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, this tells the mystical story of
Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
