The next Supper Sleuths Discussion takes place January 9, 2018 at 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the Lecture Hall.

This month’s topic is New Foreign Authors. Explore the world by choosing an author in a place that intrigues you or a character that compels you to delve into the story.

When preparing your “reviews,” think about how well the author creates the characters, the setting, the plot, and the tone of the book. Please give a very quick overview of the plot—one or two sentences. Leave the secondary plots out of the review unless they really matter. Do not disclose “spoilers”—the ending or some other integral facet of character development or plot. The rest of the “review” can be responses to how well the author does his or her job to craft this particular story. Describe what you enjoyed. Express what you did not enjoy. Has the author written a predictable plot or character? Did you laugh? Did you care? Was the story too violent? Was the violence or crime unnecessarily graphic? Is there romance? Would you read this author again? Is it part of a series? Should you read the series in order? Does this title/author remind you of any other authors you have read?
