And the winners for the July/August group reads are:

Nemesis, by Agatha Christie, with Celeste as the discussion leader, and

The Killing, by David Hewson, with Colleen as discussion leader.

Pick one or both, but have a great time!

Gisela Hafezparast | 368 comments I read the Killing a few months ago and whilst I thoroughly enjoyed it, I thought sometimes the various story lines got a bit confused. Personally, I didn't really think the "political story" added much apart from taking away from the main story lines, i.e. first a family's fears for their daughter, sister, niece and then coping with the loss of her coupled with the theme of redemption, turning ones life away from hate and crime towards love and family. And then of course ultimate betrayal of friendship and family ties. Had only given it 3 stars, but on reflection it would have probably deserved a bit more.
