Here’s what happened at Book Club…
This is one of the rare books that EVERYONE agreed on. We all loved the characters and thought the writing was hilarious.
Special favorites were of course Angus and Pete 1 and Pete 2. The girlfriend could probably have been left out – helpless romantics this group is not.
There was a lively (a.k.a. loud!) discussion about the Canadian political scene and if the Opposition House Leader was the same as the Opposition Leader or the Leader of the House???
It was unanimously agreed that the best description of the entire book was Daniel’s discovery of his girlfriend with the Opposition House Leader (ergo the discussion).
Here’s how it went:
“Rachel, my Rachel, was on her knees in front of the Opposition House Leader. Let”s just say she was rather enthusiastially lobbying his caucus. Stunned and devastated, I turned away – to get a better view in the lee of a well-endowed rubber plant. Rachel jumped into her advance work with both hands before moving to what seemed to be his favorite part of the proceedings – Oral Questions. Eventually he pulled her up off the floor and onto the desk where he begged leave to introduce his private Member’s bill. Clearly, there was unanimous consent as the cut and thrust of debate started immediately – well, mostly thrust…”
This is a book well worth reading. It’s laugh out loud funny with wonderful, colourful characters. Enjoy!!
