Nearly everywhere you turn in the book world, people are talking about Richard Osman’s debut, The Thursday Murder Club. The Bookseller reports that it has been the fastest selling adult crime debut since records began. This is a murder mystery that feels fresh and different while hovering on the very edge of being cosy. The observations sparkle with wit, and the plot itself has a definite bite (so perhaps not so cosy after all). The four main septuagenarian protagonists are an absolute delight to get to know, and there are enough trips and traps to please the most sleuthy of armchair detectives. Pointed and sharp, yet warm and charming, this is a novel that we think would make a perfect book club pick. Will everyone love it, will there be a few surprises, will it give your brain a bit of a workout, we would love to know your thoughts.
Here are a few questions to start you off, without of course any spoilers to mar your reading pleasure:
In case you missed them, our September Book Club Recommendation was Sarah Crossan's Here is the Beehive, August's Suggestion was A Room Made of Leaves by Kate Grenville and our July Book Club Recommendation, debut book Something To Live For by Richard Roper was also a gem.
