The Cosy Reading Book Club met in store for their monthly book club on Friday the 13th of July and discussed the book, Crossings by Alex Landragin.
This was a great book to discuss as a group as there are two different ways the book can be read. It was interesting to see how everyone’s experience of the book differed depending on how they read it.
The book can be read front to back as three short stories or in the ‘Baroness sequence’ which takes you on an interweaving journey back and forth through the book to tell one story. For example if you read the book in the Baroness sequence you started on page 150 and after reading four pages you jumped to page 39.
But the great thing we discovered with this book is that no matter how it was read everybody loved it!
Which isn’t always the case with our book club books. A lot of the time the group can be split on loving it or not so it is exciting when a book captures us all.
