Antibes Book Club is meeting on the 17th February at 8pm in La Tour International, next to the Marche Provencal in Place Massena.  The first book is Enduring Love by Ian McEwan.

Please come along whether you love it, hate it, or want to read something else!

Two Things:

I would really love to be part of a book club in Antibes.  Not fussy about book types, but love to read.

Also, I read The Sexual Life of Catherine M and agree with you wholeheartedly.  However I also have a french french who said the french version was amazing, so I would say it was the translation.

Hi Jacq

Yes I would be interested.  I have never been in a book club, but I love reading, and I like the idea of discussing books.

I am not suggesting this as a read, but ... I would be REALLY interested to know what anybody else things about "The Sexual Life of Catherine M" by Catherine Millet.  I thought it was like reading a Haynes Car Manual! (that level of excitement anyway), but I have spoken to a French guy who read the original version and thought that it was excellent .. so was it the translation? or was the book just not to my taste?
