The Dinner by Herman Koch
 
Book Club Recommended

The Dinner

I found this book fascinating. The author creates tension with personal conflicts not directly related to events at hand. He chooses to force you to use your imagination by deliberately stating that certain details are not pertinent to the story, are they? The characters you start out liking are not the ones you have compassion for at the end. A book that you won't soon forget.

I learned so much, but it didn\'t feel like I was reading a textbook. I now see \"seeing\" very differently!

Orange is the New Black

While it was an eye opener with respect to women in the US prison system, it was poorly written and to be honest a little boring. I was glad it wasn't longer, I just wanted to finish it.

A thousand days in Venice

While I enjoyed the book I always had the feeling the author was embellishing her life. What I found the most interesting were her insights into the cultural differences between North Americans and Italians.

I thought this book made you reflect on the impact of choices made in ones life; however, I was disappointed with the ending. I felt that the author could have chosen to let the reader ponder how the world would have been if she had been successful in Germany.
