First Wednesday Book Club- Brighton Rock by Graham Greene

This month the First Wednesday book club met to discuss Graham Greene’s novel Brighton Rock. This novel has strong characters and covers themes such as Catholicism and self-loathing of the body.

All members of the club took a while to engage with the book as the story unfolds slowly. Some comments included ” brilliant writing”, “characterisation drives the book” “a powerful and insightful ending”. Overall the members feel they would read another Graham Greene book.
