Didsbury Book Group

We talk about them too ! If you like to talk about what you've read, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

1984 — Eric Blair



Book cover for 1984 in Didsbury book group

Winston Smith works in the Ministry of Truth, altering historical records to fit the needs of the Party. He notices a coworker, a beautiful dark-haired girl, staring at him, and worries that she is an informant who will turn him in for his thoughtcrime. One day, Winston receives a note from her that reads “I love you.”

"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever."


This week's book is Eric Blair's 1984.

We'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.
