Our Reading Group discussed Jill Dawson's The Great Lover the other day. I had read it earlier, ( and posted about it here) but didn't re-read, so found the discussion interesting. Many of the group weren't that keen on it, but most had read it and one or two who had'nt finished said they would read to the end. They felt slightly confused by the mix of fact and fiction, not knowing precisely which might be which. I had enjoyed reading it last January, but didn't feel inclined to re-read, partly because I could still remember much of it. We were joined for our discussion by one member's new ( born in October) daughter, who was extremely well behaved for a first timer, barely a cry, just an interested look round most of the time.
