Can a sci-fi novel make for a good book club book? We find out with The Left-Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin. Did Laura's book club, mostly sci-fi newbies, like it or loathe it?
From fantasy dystopia to the real world, we also tackle Second-Hand Time, Svetlana Alexievich's history of life in Soviet and post-Soviet Russia. It's an emotionally challenging read on a difficult subject. But did Kate's book club think it worth the effort? Listen in to find out.
We also interview 88-year old Anne Thompson about her favourite literary discoveries thanks to her book club.
