The Help by Kathryn Stockett
 
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Inspiring, Interesting
Great discussion

Enjoying a book is not a criteria for a good book discussion but everyone enjoyed reading this book. It provided a great discussion for our group which is multi-generational. Members recalled their own experiences from this time period. Great characters to explore, nice tie in with faith, which is a focus for our group.

Short book--Long discussion

Great conversation about the constancy of mathematics. Had a former math teacher there who gave more background on the some of the theories and mathematical principals discussed. Sweet tender story.

Entertaining, humor and insightful

This book is a thoughtful look at life in post WWII England. The main character, Mildred is one of those "excellent women" who serve their church and others. Her wry observations are full of humor and the book is an easy read. Very interesting look at British society and life following the war (food shortages, buildings still in rubble from bombings) . Probably one of the best book discussions we have ever had. Highly recommended.

H Is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald
 
Book Club Recommended
Slow, Difficult, Boring
Exquisite writing

Macdonald's descriptions of the English countryside are so amazing, it will make you want to chase a hawk across the landscape. Great discussion about grief, loss, recovery and raptor birds.

A Classic no one has read

This turned out to be a great pick for our group. Everyone knows the book but only a handful of our members had read the book as a child. The exquisite writing and uplifting message of friendship, nature and faith was a great fit.

Excellent discussion

Many members said the book started a bit slowly but once the journey was underway it was a great read. Very detailed in parts but an enthralling and little known story. We had an excellent discussion.
