A Farewell to Armsby Ernest Hemingway.
I may have missed it in the episode; could you put a reminder as to when the next book club episode will be?
Good call on the book Rym.
I'd still rather have done the Odyssey, but I have little faith that enough people would have read it.
The podcast's not going anywhere, neither is the discussion.
Well, I don't expect many of our listeners to read it ever...
I just remember the final "twist" to be blatantly obvious throughout, even when I was 13. It seemed even more obvious this time round, but maybe because I was just waiting for it.
I'm not really criticising the book as such, mainly the perception that the "twist" is a twist at all. It is spelled out quite clearly earlier on in the book, so I'm not sure how much consuming other media has to do with it. I grew up in a house with no TV, so I watched very few films or other visual media, and I worked out the twist by reading the previous words in the same book.
