Together in Spirit

An online reading group ('TIS a reading group!) to bring together friends, and friends of friends, who aren't able to be in a conventional reading group due to constraints of time or geography.

The Little Stranger

Read it some time ago before it was chosen for this group read, so no quotes to hand. I loved Sarah Waters other work and was just disappointed with this. Don't mind ghost stories per se but this was long, tedious and lugubrious and I did not like it one bit!!

Coming to Val's query re hard being a woman if you do it properly, perhaps we need to define 'properly'? Either way I think being a human being and doing it properly is difficult! Men have it easier in some ways but harder in others and are frequently emotionally constipated to boot!
