New choice for the Book Club – ‘Of Mice and Men’ by John Steinbeck

Our first classic! Such a well-studied and famous book, it is still required reading in many schools and has been adapted countless times for screen, stage and radio. It’s only 120 pages long and harks back to 1937, some of us studied it for GCSEs many moons ago yet most of us know nothing about it. Chosen by an English teacher and highly recommended, will we love it or will it be too dated? Will we pick up on the imagery and the deep rooted themes without looking at it as an academic text? Let’s find out!

‘The Giver’ by Lois Lowry

We have decided on our first book! The Chamonix Book Club’s first title is going to be ‘The Giver’, by Lois Lowry. Thought provoking and controversial, we thought this would be a great starting point, and provide a variety of opinions from the group! Looking forward to publishing my first review once I have the feedback from the book club. Watch this space!
