The Goldfinch

Though we had some good discussions around this book, I think most of our members thought it was longer than it needed to be. Several members felt it didn\'t live up to its reputation but a couple of members really enjoyed it.

Beautiful, Insightful, Dramatic

At first, the movement through parallel stories and time was difficult for me but after I became accustomed to that, I was able to really appreciate the layers and subtleties of this book. No detail is wasted and I love it when seemingly disparate parts come together to form a lovely, multifaceted whole.

Interesting story line, flawed characters. This book kept my attention all the way through.

Thought-provoking

Gladwell's books always invite me to look at things a little bit differently. My main reason for recommending this book, or any of his books, to book clubs is because they are probably very different from your usual reads. There is a lot to discuss and explore in Gladwell's books.

I'm not sure where fact meets fiction..

...in this story. Although it covers a very dark and serious time in our history, the author writes with such voice that at times I was literally laughing out loud. I have been intrigued, through my reading of this book, to further explore John Brown and his place in history.

Born A Crime

A poignant look into life in South Africa during and just after Apartheid. Trevor Noah employs his trademark humor to share his personal experiences of growing up under this system of government, thus providing some funny vignettes to this very serious topic of race and discrimination.
