Reads Well with Others Book GroupMonday June 26, 2023
7:30 PM until 8:30 PM
Join us on Monday June 26th at 7:30pm, in room 228 for the "Reads Well with Others" Book Group’s discussion of The Rook, by Daniel O’Malley.
Description: “This Australian author's first novel adroitly straddles the thin line between fantasy, thriller, and spoof. Myfanwy Thomas awakens in a park with no memory of who she is and not a clue about whom all these dead bodies belong to or why they're all wearing latex gloves. Finding an envelope in her pocket, she reads the letter inside and discovers that she is an executive in a shadowy organization, the Checquy Group, that keeps the world safe from all manner of supernatural threats. And apparently, Myfanwy has been plunked down, memory-less, at a time when an ancient enemy of the Checquy Group is massing for a resurgence. The book has, in approximately equal measures, an X-Men vibe (the Checguy Group runs a boarding school for gifted youngsters) and a Tom Holt vibe (the story is about an ordinary woman thrust into an extraordinary world and scrambling to play catch-up). O'Malley is a nimble writer, effortlessly leaping back and forth between comedy and action.”
Copies of the books are available in regular print, so stop by the library to pick up a physical copy. It is also available as an eBook and eAudio through Overdrive / Libby.
