Could not put this down!

Gripping from the first chapter. I was a bit overwhelmed when I heard the subject. School shooting are something I always turn the channel on tv to avoid. Just can't stomach the idea. This book was from all point of views. Easy read, because of how she wrote it. Very enjoyable, and worth the purchase.

Not worth it!

I selected this book thinking it would be fun and light hearted for our club to read. It never made it there for our group of 35 to 40 year olds. We were all so disappointed on so many levels.

Middlesex: A Novel by Jeffrey Eugenides
Interesting, Dramatic, Epic
Great Book, Much too long

I enjoyed reading this book, but found the details were a little too long in places. I had to keep reminding myself that Calliope was in here teens telling this story. It should be an excellent discussion for our group. I would recommend this book, but difficult for a working mom to get through the text.

Quick read

This book was a quick read and entertaining.
At times considered predictable, but entertaining. You have to love a woman who goes after what she wants no matter what the odds.

Boring, Inspiring, Slow
Excellent book for travel lovers

This book was an easy to follow and well written. Gilbert lets you into her mind without any reservations. Her travels bring you around the world and through her mind.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic
Loved this book!!!

I was left wanting more in this story. The struggles this kid went through and how they all in their own way over came them is an amazing tribute to the author. It is astonishing how much kids can bear and the lengths they will go to over come them. I have recommend this to several people and will continue to do so. Written so well and with out the warranted pity party. Excellent read!

Fun, Inspiring, Optimistic
Light Read

Light read and nice break from all the Memoirs. Our club is bringing a list of what we want to do in a year/five years. It should prove to be a moving night.

Not worth it!

This book is a collection of essays. We mostly talked about the lack of plot in this book and lack of detail. It did make us all want to plant a garden or head to a farmers market. Not a big discussion book for a club. But we all joined a book club to read out of our comfort zones anyway.

Atonement by Ian Mcewan
The only thing we discussed was how bad this book was to read

I would not recommend the book. Only one person could get through the book. So difficult because there were barely any conversations. I can't even understand why they would make it into a movie. Skip it!

Epic, Romantic, Adventurous

I was really ready for a great love story with wonderful twists and turns. This had all those things in the book, but the flow was disapponting. You can tell a man wrote this book from a woman's perspective. The ending was terrible, it was a big dissappointment after reading A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Informative, Dramatic, Insightful

This book was tough to put down. The violence was difficult if not unbearable to get through at times, but our club loved this book. It was well written and thoughtful from a womans point of view. I loved this book.

I could not put this book down!

I truly enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down.
It is a curtural trip to China in the late 1800's. Very different from the other books we have read. It gets you thinking about your own female relationships. Great Book!!!!

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Insightful, Inspiring, Interesting
Predictable, but worth it

This was a good book. I did keep looking over my shoulder a bit as I read the book and how it affected everyone. It will lead to some interesting discussions

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick
Book Club Recommended
Dark, Dramatic, Interesting
Intense book !

I thought this book was good and it gripped me. I was hesistant at first until I got into the story. There is a fine line between good and evil in the early 1900's and image and honor are a huge part of this. It is different and unusual from anything else we have read.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Dramatic, Insightful

This book chilled me to my soul. I had a really hard time putting it down and dealing with the subject matter. It puts the holocost in a different light and from the point of a child who is forced to grow up way too fast.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Fun
Set in WWII, and written in forms of letters from different parties

I loved this book. I listened to the narrated version and loved the different characters. It shows that war and desperate times can only take so much away from people. I loved how the different characters dealt with their different situations and learned to move on from it all.

I loved this book. It has wraps around the subject and tells the story in a gripping way. My only complaint is that it ends too soon.
