The Reading Group - Elizabeth Noble Not as good as I'd hoped, but better than I'd feared - especially after I saw the average rating here.I'd only read 3 of the 12 books the ladies covered in their reading group, but that turned out not to be a problem at all, as the reading group was really more an excuse to meet than the purpose of the book, so I didn't feel left out. On the surface it's got a lot in common with all the knitting club books that have surfaced lately, in that it's about a group of people who meet for some common purpose, end up as friends and you end up following all of their lives.It was more believable than some of the others in that the women didn't suddenly become best friends - they still spent most of their time with the people they were already friends with in advance. On the downside was the fact that it was really rather depressing. Out of the five ladies in the reading group only one had a happy and healthy relationship at the beginning of the book, and though that had fortunately changed by the end, it still seemed over the top to include so many unhappy/troubled/adulterous relationships in one circle of friends.I mostly liked the way it all panned out though, and ended up being quite fond of most of the characters, but purely as a piece of fluff I'd recommend picking up books like "The Friday Night Knitting Club" and "The Knitting Circle" - or even "The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society" instead.
