Dapto Monday Night Book Club

Spencer, Fran and Iris have something in common: the feeling that life is passing them by. Spencer’s lost his lover,who bequeathed him a list of things to do; Fran shares a run-down house with her oddball brother; whilst Iris spends her time cleaning up after her two teenage sons. Spencer’s List is a wonderfully funny tale of life lived on the edge – of reason, of failure and of (just possibly) a brighter future.

Our Monday night group had mixed reactions to this month’s book. It was considered a comfortable read, but not a page turner. It seemed to promise more colourful characters than it provided. Instead they were everyday people lacking dimension.

So if you pick up Spencer’s List hoping for a lively, laugh-out-loud book, as our group did, you will be slightly disappointed.
