The other day I posted my review of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and as I mentioned in my review, I didn’t care for it too much. Although it was not an official pick for the book group that I belong to, many of us wanted to read it and so we met tonight to discuss it.
Of the members that came for the discussion, I would have to say that most were very pleased with the book. They found it to be a charming, pleasant read and they found the format to be very readable. Some agreed somewhat with my take on Juliet but they all agreed that the story pulled them in. However, there was one member who didn’t like the book at all but she didn’t come for the discussion so I have no idea why!
It is hard to be the only one who didn’t like it though. I ended up being “the hater” and really, my reaction to the book was not like that. It was just sort of …eh (insert shoulder shrug). Thanks to all that commented on the review. You all had such wonderful comments and I was so worried about getting slammed for not liking it.
