    1. Almost the entirety of this novel takes place around a dining table where a number of disparate characters discuss, argue and flirt over a long meal. Naturally, much is said and even more is intimated by allowing us to be privy to the thoughts of those whose point of view we are currently reading. It makes for a most unusual book. Initially I admit I found some of the conversation stilted. Later I tried reading it to myself in my version of a South African accent (that’s where it’s set) and [...]


    2. Six For Seven by Jo Roderick – reviewed by Jo for Drama Queens Book Blog5* - read September 2015**NO SPOILERS**I thoroughly enjoyed reading Six for Seven. It’s a fantastic book, very cleverly written and very very witty.The book is based on a South African dinner party with some very interesting and complex characters. Each chapter is a different dinner guests POV giving us insight into their lives and their opinions of all the other guests. The story was quite political in places with conve [...]


    3. Six For Seven certainly isn't the usual sort of book I would normally go for but for some reason the blurb intrigued me so I thought I would give it a go.The story pretty much is a group of people sat round a table eating dinner, making small talk. There is a variety of characters, some more interesting than others. Each chapter introduces the reader to each character and then alternates between them until the evening is over.The story actually made me feel like I was also a part of the evening, [...]


    4. Really enjoyed this. An unusual book, for certain, and next to impossible to characterise, but a lot of fun regardless. A variety of figures sit down at the dinner table and one by one we enter their worlds and perch inside their minds as they parry the rapier-thrusts of repartee and try to guide the conversation where they want it to go. In less skilled hands, the gentle digs and the verbal dexterity might get tiresome, but because we have a chance to see inside these characters and understand [...]


    5. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I throughly enjoyed this book. I am not familiar with the politics or way of life in South Africa so this book was both highly amusing and informative. I loved getting to know the quirky group of dinner guests as they got to know each other. This is such a unique book thanks to both the way it is written and the eclectic characters. I quickly grew fond of a number of the characters and I am thrilled to learn some of [...]

    7. This is another book that I am at a loss as to what to say about initially. During reading a book I have been asked to review, I occasionally make notes about things I want to say in my review, or at least have some idea about what I am going to say once I have finished but, apart from "I thoroughly enjoyed reading it" I came away from the book initially thinking nothing, And that, I believe is how it should be. There should be no room for formulating a review during reading. It is important to [...]


    8. I received this book for free for an honest review. This is not my usual type of read, but I really enjoyed it. It seemed strange that an entire book could be set at a dinner party- but it worked. We get to meet the characters as the guests arrive and throughout the evening and the different courses we pop in and out of their heads, getting to know them from the inside so to speak as well as through the eyes of the others. The conversation is fast paced and funny and the people feel like real pe [...]


    9. The author introduces you to a number of characters quite early on but it didn't take long before I knew them. I loved how this book progressed. It takes skill to keep a reader hooked all the way through a book when there isn't big action taking place. The conversations were great and the humour kept a grin on my face throughout, one of my favourite examples of this humour is: "My shoes taste terrible! I must find a tastier brand if I am going to keep embarrassing myself with such rampant regula [...]


    10. One day we will probably have Kuisine and be able to eat the food in books. I loved this dinner party and was only sorry I couldn't try the food. The author gives us prologue notes explaining this is not an average novel. The layout and technique worked perfectly on my Kindle and I enjoyed the thoughts of all the diners. Without giving anything away we draw right back at the end and the reader is in for a few shocks.I would like to read more by this writer.


    11. Being South African I was curious about the book. Some of the characters are a bit over the top but really funny. The politics are sadly a real issue for our country. This comedy novel is a little out of the mainstream but very wellwritten. The end of the book is especially interesting. I found the book very satisfying.


    12. I was lucky enough to get a copy of this through THE book club and really enjoyed it. I knew very little of SA but felt the characters gave a good insight into what it was like to live in SA. The book was funny and flowed like a real dinner party. The ending was very well done. I would highly recommend.


    13. What a dinner party! I'd love to be invited to a dinner party with such a diverse mix of characters.I enjoyed this book. The writing was so beautifully descriptive that I could picture the house and gardens.This book has made me want to discover more about the history and geography of South Africa.I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.


    14. This book is really funny. It is out of the ordinary so maybe not everyone will agree, but it is well written and flows well. There are lots of characters and I like the way each chapter tells me which one is the focus. The surprise is how the book ends. Guess youll have to wait and read it. NO SPOILERS!


    15. I actually really enjoyed this book. It is very different, well written and funny. I have very little knowledge of the South African setting for the dinner party, but actually that didn't matter at all. A really interesting, thoroughly enjoyable read. I received a copy from THE Book Club in exchange for an honest review.


    16. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter in this book. The author has a wicked sense of humor and it shows. It is an interesting look into life in South Africa. The end of the book holds a few surprises for the reader.



    17. This book introduces you to numerous people at a dinner party being held in South Africia and the variety of personalities that people have sad how they interact.I enjoyed this book which does covers some big issues but in no real depth as it is I believe book 1 in a series. It is definately well worth the read.


    18. An unusual and amusing comedy of manners set in South Africa. Not my usual choice of book but it is a clever concept and I was very taken by the lively dialogue and characters. Looking forward to seeing what else Mr Roderick has up his sleeve.


    19. Great bookEntertaining, very different from everything I read before, great way to get to know some cultural background of South Africa Really recommend it
