I missed out on the last meeting in March but got an update from one of the other member's. Here is what was said about the last two books we reviewed -
We reviewed two selections.
Everyone really enjoyed the “Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie”, our February selection, and it received a resounding six thumbs up. Several were already into reading the second and third books in this series.
The March selection, “The Monkey’s Raincoat”, received mixed reviews, 2 thumbs up and four down. A few expressed the opinion that it was overly violent and old fashion. Not surprising, since it was published in 1992, but a necessity if we plan to start a series with the first one published. Just think, no internet, no cell phones, etc. A very strange world indeed compared with today’s.
