Un:Bound Book Group

Have I mentioned lately how much I love our host Harry? He's so completely darling he's allowing me to flog my wares here and i'm diving straight in.

Un:Bound has a book group, picking a book to read over a two month period. GeekMonkey, ChooChoo and I are the main core of regular readers and we will let you know each book we pick here so you can join in the discussion on the forum.

To get things moving we have already read the first book The Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse and we are now ready to choose our April/May book.

Each two months we will pick a book, read it in the first month, discuss it and then in the second month we will post the key comments and thoughts here. The forum can contain spoilers.

There are also plenty of opportunities for general book talk so come and get involved.

So here are our brief thoughts on the Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse by Victor Gischler

All in all the team were surprised that a book with such a silly title wasn't funnier. We didn't warm to the lead character much at all and we thought the assumptions about how humanity in general and especially women would deal with the apocalypse were a bit stupid.
It was quite well written, fairly entertaining, we like the sidekick character but we were bored with all the drinking and puking. There was no conflict in our views on this book. It's perfectly readable but doesn't deliver what it leads you to expect.

We will announce our second book choice soon.
