In this episode Katrina Roe and Natasha Moore discuss:
- Liane Moriarty’s new bestseller, Nine Perfect Strangers
- Bridge of Clay, by Marcus Zusak
- All the Light You Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr
- The Signature of All Things, by Elizabeth Gilbert
Nine Perfect Strangers is the latest release from the Australian queen of suburban satire, Liane Moriarty. The story centres around guests at a health retreat, who are all facing significant obstacles in their life. Natasha says Moriarty is back in fine Big Little Lies form with this one.
Lovers of historical fiction have two books to choose from: All the Light you Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, set in Europe during the Second World War, and Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things, which follows a groundbreaking female scientist unearthing facts about the origin of the species in the era of Charles Darwin. It’s a sweeping and complex novel from the author of Eat, Pray, Love.
And Katrina devours the long-awaited new book from Marcus Zusak, author of The Book Thief. Bridge of Clay explores the unconventional childhood of five brothers following the death of their mother.
And finally, did Katrina convince Natasha to branch out with an audiobook on her summer holiday? Find out in Episode 10 of the Hope Book Club!
