The twice yearly “Reading clubs” hosted by Simon and Karen are a lot of fun. I’m going to be reviewing 1954’s The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis shortly, since it was also this month’s read for the Narniathon. But I found a couple of earlier reviews that I posted at The Emerald City Book Review, which might also be of interest:
Other books published in 1954 that I enjoyed and can recommend include Moominsummer Madness, Half Magic, Mio, My Son, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Children of Green Knowe (lots of good children’s books and fantasy!), The Toll-Gate, and Leaven of Malice. A book I have read and did not enjoy is Lord of the Flies. I have been meaning to reread it and see if I still hate it as much as I did when I was in high school, but not this week.
Are you participating in the club? What will you read this week? Have you read any of the above books, and what did you think?
