Rain stopped play

The Feast of the Goat BarBQ celebrating two years of book club was cancelled due to inclement weather. Instead we met at the Alwyne near Highbury Corner.

We discussed The Feast of the Goat.
Mr Clifford - "docu novel"
Mr Earley - "it's galloping..."
Mr Ackland - "dictatorship...I can't get enough of it"
DA 6/10, BA 6/10, BC, 6.5/10, RE 6/10, PG 6.5/10 - AVERAGE = 6.2

...and Chavez Ravine.
Mr Clifford - "...Saturday morning when doing scrambled eggs"
Mr Adam - "...Felix - he f#cking loves that album"
Mr Ackland - "Three cool cats? F#ck off!". "whole album justified by track nine"

Mr Adam chose Roxy Music Country Life.
Mr Earley chose William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury.

Other recommendations:
Love in the Time of Cholera
In Cold Blood
Mambo Sinuendo
