読書クラブ 会話 – Book Club Conversation

Sharon
ねえ、ジョン、少し話し時間ある?
Hey John, can I talk to you for a minute?

John
あるよ。どうしたの?
Sure, what’s up?

Sharon
数ヶ月前に入った読書クラブの事、教えてあげたくて。ジョン、たくさん本を読むでしょ。もしかして、来月一緒に行かないかなって思って。
I wanted to let you know about a book club I joined a couple months ago. I know you do a lot of reading so I thought you might want to come with me next month.

John
そう、楽しそうだね。いつ集まるの?
Oh, that sounds like fun. When does the group meet?

Sharon
ふつうは毎月最後の土曜日、夜の9時半から。遅すぎる?
Usually the last Saturday of the month at 9:30 in the evening. Is that too late for you?

John
ううん、大丈夫だよ。みんなでどんな事、話すの?
No, I think that’s ok. What do you talk about in the group?

Sharon
そうね、毎月い新しい本を一冊選んで、それについて次の集まりで話し合うの。
Well, every month we choose a new book and then during the next meeting we discuss it.

John
今何を読んでるの?
What book are you reading now?

Sharon
カイトランナー。
The Kite Runner.

John
それ、いい本だって聞いたよ。どんな事が書いてある?
I’ve heard that’s a good book. What’s it about?

Sharon
いい本よ。殆ど読み終わった。80年代にアフガニスタンで育った男の子の話。「カイトランナー」って言うんだけど、主人公が凧揚げ大会に出場するから。
It is a good book. I’m almost finished. The book is about a boy who grows up in Afghanistan during the 1980s. It’s called the Kite Runner because the main character takes part in a kite flying competition.

John
本当におもしろそうだね。是非行きたいよ。
That sounds really interesting. I’d love to come.

Sharon
わあ、よかった。次の集まりまでにまだ2週間あるから、本を読む時間があるね。
Ok, great. The next meeting isn’t for another two weeks, so you still have time to read the book.

Sample Answer

Here is an example of a good answer to the question of what title you last read:

“The last book I read was Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. Somehow, I missed reading that classic while in school and a friend of mine thought I would enjoy Whitman. After a few pages, I became really enthralled with how he could execute sharp commentaries as well as gentle subtleties in a single passage.”

If you cannot fit your relevant skills into your answer naturally, don’t worry about it. This question allows you the chance to show how effectively you communicate, so focus more on the book and why you read it.
