The Lie Tree
Interesting so far and definitely getting better as it goes along. There seems to be a secret that you won't find out until the end so we're expecting more clues as we continue.

First Impressions
There were some fantastic choices on the long list and we'll definitely be returning to some of them at the end of the summer term. So far, first impressions of the short list are mixed… We’ve started well with The Lie Tree and One. One has been popular with a number of us so far – partly because we were expecting a normal format (although at least one us has read The Weight of Water) and partly because of we were interested in the issues it seems to explore. Not everyone was as sure about Fire Colour One as it opened with a funeral and the ‘firepower’ that appears on the cover of The Rest of Us Just Live Here and the unusual chapter titles made it look good to some of the group. We’ll see how next week goes!
