“Gripping … You won’t be able to put down this unsettling tale.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
In March of 2016 the ‘Reading Group’ at Rhymney Library reviewed ‘The Few’ by Nadia Dalbuono.
This is what they thought:
“I really enjoyed reading the book. It was very thought provoking. It’s certainly a book that I would read again as I believe you would find different views of the storyline with new, repeated, readings.”
“Not a book I would have chosen personally. I have, however, enjoyed reading it! It had several parts of interest and dealt with a subject difficult not to turn into a ‘circus’. The book had layers and depth of characterisations, strong plots, and was very enjoyable. It made me think. I would like to know what actually happened previously. I read this author’s work again. In short, it was a good read. I WILL recommend it to friends.”
“I enjoyed the book! It was a good read! It was well paced meaning it was difficult to put down. I will be recommending it!”
“It was an easy book to read. Moving along easily, proud with clues. I found it difficult to put down because the chapters were short and I wanted to find out what happened!!! I like the style. I look forward to another by this author!”
We also did a chart to see what words we associated with the book after reading. The suggestions were:
FAST PACED – STRONG PLOT – INTRIGUING – LAYERED – INVITES RE-READING – ENJOYABLE – THOUGHT PROVOKING – HAS A SHADOW ON THE COVER – ACCESSIBLE – SUSPENSEFUL – SUCCINCT – A SURPRISE TREAT!
If you would like to join us to take part in our great free reading group it runs on the first Thursday of the month from 10.30 at Rhymney Library, Victoria Road, Np22 5NU – 01685 84606.
