June 2008, Dreamhouse by Kate Grenville (Je)

Taken from Kate Grenville's website:
"This is a black comedy of manners about a marriage in its death-throes. Rennie does not belong in a ……. marriage, although he is not prepared to realise it, and when Louise accepts this truth, it frees her to find out where she might belong.
Dream house is about being in a place where you don't belong - in a foreign country where you don't speak the language, in a relationship that is only pretending to work, in an idea of yourself that will not fit until you have the courage to find out who you are."

Interesting reactions to this book. Almost all of us did not like it .... giving it a rating 2 out of 10. Ant and Ca on the other hand ..... actually enjoyed it and rated it quite highly .... at least an 8.... and couldn't wait to discuss it. We had a good discussion that day! Next meeting is at Ant's
