The best book recommendations are from friends. Or are they?
Have you ever recommended a book to a friend, only to have it completely and utterly rejected?
Yes! A bit more tactfully, perhaps, but my friend didn’t read ‘Falling’ by Elizabeth Jane Howard (I enjoyed it a lot and recommended it) but said ages later that her husband really liked it!
Or if friends recommend books to you that you don’t fancy, do you read them? My Mum has just been given ‘The Siege of Constantinople’ by Dorothy Dunnett to read by a friend of hers, because she’s off to Istanbul. She’s promised to read the whole book when she gets back but isn’t enthused.
Let us know your recommendations & reactions and we’ll share them.
