August 2010 Pioneer Bookshop Book Club Book

The book we will discuss on August 5 is The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. A Gothic ghost story set in 1947 England, 2 years after WWII.
The book club meets on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop, 823 4th Avenue in Grinnell. Everyone is welcome to join us for a casual discussion.


  1. This book takes awhile to get into. The author spends a lot of time growing the characters and setting the stage. I'm over 100 pages into it and the action is just starting to creep into the story. I am hoping that my time getting to know these characters and place will pay off as the story unfolds.

  2. I have finished it and look forward to our discusison on Thursday. I want to hear from those of you who enjoyed it. I did not. Perhaps it's not my style. I'm trying to think of something positive to say. The images created in my head were vivid. The author didn't miss a single detail. Pages and pages of detail.
