This was our third pandemic era book club meeting – wonderful to have this technology but wouldn’t it be nice to see each other in person (although you can see Jane and Laura’s feet in this picture 😷)
Yes … thanks Josee for a well researched base for our discussion, which was as always enjoyable and informative. I am one of the ones who didn’t catch on entirely until the end… and now it’s occurring to me… when I saw FOE in caps that the title could stand for Friend Or Enemy… which could be an interesting way to discuss the appearance of the stranger… and perhaps friend or enemy to whom?
An interesting choice and not my preferred genre but I like that the book club stretches us to read and discuss out of our comfort zone.
Great discussion as always, thank you Josee for the research and for exposing us to the novel. I was wondering afterwards if the AI version of Junior aged over the 2 years he spent with Hen or does he stay the same as when he was calibrated?
I really enjoyed our philosophical, futuristic, sci-fi, discussion yesterday. My take on it is that we all seem leery about the future. Perhaps FOE and the pandemic are influencing our thinking? Great discussion as always. I do appreciate the chance to use ZOOM to meet though to be honest, it will be a treat to see everyone IN PERSON at Jane’s next month – even if we can’t hug each other.Thanks Josee for bringing Ian Reid’s novel to our attention. It will be interesting to see the film adaption. I wonder which themes the scriptwriter and director will focus on.
