We had a long discussion about the book 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society'. Our overall score was 8.7 out of 10.
Some comments were:
'I couldn't put it down.'
'I'd forgotten how long it used to take to get hold of a book. Nowadays we just click a button and it is there.'
'It took a while to get used to the book being written in letters. But once you were absorbed you forgot it was in letter format.'
On the other hand,
'I tried to read the book, but was finding it difficult to read the letters, found it disjointed and confusing.'
'I looked at it and didn't like the format therefore I didn't read it.'
'The title may have been off-putting.'
'It read as though it were little short stories and the style of writing seemed a little disjointed.'
