I read this book and enjoyed it very much, but then I've never read a book by Peter Ackroyd that I didn't like. I enjoyed reading your review and insightful extras.


Sounds like a fun night and a fun read.


"how to enjoy opera"; that's on my short list of things I'd like to do in the next few years. My mother discovered opera after we were all out of the house and she got involved with a wonderful group of women at the Opera Guild. Really stretched her, she did all kinds of fund-raising, public speaking, stuff I never knew she could do!

As for that part on Thursday - it sounds like a blast, and I hope you were wearing sensible flats at this stage! :)


Sounds great!


Ooh I want A Year in High Heels! Never heard of The Lambs of London before but I'm intrigued regardless.

Julie E.

A hope "in the first of twelve episodes" means you're eventually going to post the rest of the recommendations? In the meantime, I'll add The Lambs of London to my TBR list.

Book Club Girl

Yes Julie, I'll be featuring monthly recommendations from Camilla's book!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
