Discussion Notes: Exit West

In January we read Exit West by Mohsin Hamid.

Next month we will read Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James.

Rated: Clean

Gerald, Anais, and Colette discuss Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, which was short listed for the 2017 Booker prize. At the heart of this book is a romance, tested by a civil war, the painful life of a migrant on the run in foreign countries, and the labyrinthine system of fictitious doors that lead them on their difficult trip across the globe. All three hosts loved the book, it’s tone, and light element of magical realism that tied the story together.

Sorry we’re late with this one! Gerald and Anais run the editing behind the scenes in whatever free time they can find in busy lives. Gerald’s moved house and had no internet for 2 weeks, and Anais couldn’t keep up with all the shows without him! April should be back on track.

Please leave an iTunes review! It helps us attract a wider audience and keep growing.

We air the first Friday of every month, and discuss the books on Twitter between shows using #LRHBookclub.

We’d love to hear from you
