The Reading Group follows the trials and tribulations of a group of women who meet regularly to read and discuss books.Over the course of a year, each of these women become intertwined, both in the books they read and within each other's lives.

Inspired by a shared desire for conversation, a good book and a glass of wine-Clare, Harriet, Nicole, Polly, and Susan undergo startling revelations and transformations despite their differences in background, age and respective dilemmas.

What starts as a reading group gradually evolves into a forum where the women may express their views through the books they read and grow to become increasingly more open as the bonds of friendship cement.

In The Reading Group, Noble reveals the many complicated paths in life we all face as well as the power and importance of friendship.

    As a book club member for over twenty years, I had a few ideas about this reading experience before I started to read. The structure of the book and The Reading Group seemed familiar, I liked the group itself and was glad there weren't any more members. I found the reading selections varied and the discussions, as described, either had me nodding or smiling and was definitely in agreement when group members simply announced they'd not read the book. Sounded very familiar. I liked the fast clipped pace, wasn't crazy about the wandering point of view, but overall enjoyed the experience of The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble. I'll likely check out a few of the titles in the group's reading list.
