Reading Circle

The reading group of some 30 members founded by Andrew and Sandra Milne-Skinner is now in its third year. Each month we meet in a member’s home to discuss a contemporary book in English, usually a novel.

In this monthly radio programme 3 or 4 of us get together in the studio to discuss  the book of the month by sharing impressions and insights.

'Blood Summit'
by Robert Pimm

"Counter-terrorism expert Helen Gale has one job: to protect world leaders at a summit in the Berlin Reichstag. But terrorists take hostage presidents, prime ministers, one hundred innocent children - and Helen's journalist husband. Then the executions start. Helen's life implodes. Yet she alone can see the truth. As special forces plan a deadly assault, she must enter the shattered hulk of the Reichstag to stop a bloodbath... "

The author Robert Pimm reads four extracts from 'Blood Summit' and answers questions from Maria, Sandra and Andrew.

We discuss the novel as a political thriller, the types of characters involved, and the narrative style.

Music played:

  • Leonard Cohen - Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye
  • Mikis Theodorakis - Music from the film 'Z'
