  1. Thomas Hardy

    I've read Jude the Obscure - or perhaps I should say I started to read it and then gave up. It was a long time ago so I can't remember why I didn't finish. I liked The Mayor of Casterbridge. But he's not a happy chappy our Mr Hardy, is he? Perhaps I should read Under the Greenwood Tree as you say it is jolly. I think it was good for me to feel so deeply how his characters had to live. They were probably true to the times he lived in.
  2. Thomas Hardy

    Yes, I like Thomas Hardy. When I read Tess of the d'Urbevilles I was glued to it but when I got to the end I literally threw the book across the room (I was a teenager!). I could not believe anyone could end a book like that and I was very upset. He sure knows how to hurt.
  3. Hi Hayley - I don't visit The Book Club forum very often but a member has updated me and said that you have saved this valuable club. I'd just like to say thank you and I think it is good (if regrettable) that there are adverts on show now. I'm assuming that the more clicks on these adverts, the more The Book Club is supported. So I'll go and click on something and take a look at what the advertiser has to offer.

      Thank you Anna, that was a really nice message to get. I can't say my motives were completely unselfish - I would have been very sad to lose the forum and I'm really grateful to all the people who stuck around (you included!) and who really make the forum what it is. The ads are regrettable (especially when they start popping up in weird places instead of where they're meant to be!) but they are really helping. Thank you for wanting to help support the forum. You are right about how the ads work but I can't really comment more than that because of the AdSense rules.

      Do you know we have a patreon now? https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum . I can't take any credit for the page, I had a lot of help setting it up. But if you wanted to use that to support instead, you get entered into a seasonal prize draw :) (I can't wait to announce the Autumn one, I found such a good prize - if I do say so myself :D)

  4. As an author, I'd appreciate the review being for the whole collection with perhaps a mention of some or all of the stories. It's feedback for authors - what do readers like? If one story gets more mentions than another it's a pointer for authors. As a reader, I see your dilemma. I might choose a collection of short stories because I never have time to get stuck into a full length book. However, I think I'd wait until I'd read all of them - or most!
  5. Hello Fellow Readers!

    Welcome to this happy and friendly forum.
  6. New name, new me.

    Welcome back, Quinn. I hope you will continue to improve slowly but surely until you can be your old self again and enjoy reading once again.

    Ooh... that's a good one.
  8. Very Pleased to Have Found You All

    Welcome. It's been sleeting here in the south of England and I've been watching Scotland in the snow on TV. Just the right sort of night to curl up with a good book. I love audio books too and I'm listening to The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier at the moment. I'm sure you'll like it here.
  9. What Are You Watching Now? - 2017

    I watched the last ever episode of Inspector George Gently yesterday (or was it the day before?!). I shall miss it.

    One Dark Night - a story of smuggling on the Kent coast is set in 1821. Lucy has to decide between the King's man on the side of law and order, or the smuggler. "The choices we make determine our futures. A romantic thriller mystery". Some of the action is based on truth. It is reduced to 99p or 99c (U.S.) until 1st November. Ebook only - from Amazon. I must declare that I am the author, but I thought the club should know too, as it's advertised elsewhere.
  11. Hello from California. :)

    Welcome I hope you enjoy reading your books and that you will soon feel better.

    I have a feeling I've seen that book. I vaguely remember wondering why and somebody pointed out all Dr Seuss's books were 'different'. That's if it is a Dr Seuss. You could take a look on Amazon and try the 'Look Inside' feature Amazon has, and it might show you.
  13. Greetings

    I've bought one of the Chronicles of St Mary's books but I haven't got round to reading it yet. Under a Dark Star by Anna Faversham (yes, that's me) has now been reduced worldwide to 0.99.
