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

I generally liked the book and found it interesting while reading Sarah's story. Julia's story we found to be much less interesting. Overall we felt if it was all from Sarah's view it would've been a far better book. I also found it emotionally difficult to read because of the tragedy of the holocaust in general.

Midwives (Oprah's Book Club) by Chris Bohjalian
 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Informative, Dramatic
Couldn't put it down

 
Unconvincing, Slow, Dark
I'd Know You Anywhere

Hard to relate to the main character. After all those years you'd think she'd get a backbone. Waiting for a big reveal that never happened. It was ok.

Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
 
Informative, Difficult, Confusing
Cleopatra

Interesting book. I did learn a lot I didn't know about that time in history. But can be confusing with all the names and the wars.

The 19th Wife: A Novel by David Ebershoff

The 19th Wife

Interesting to learn about the founding of this religion and its affects on its believers. Not really sure they needed a murder mystery though. Would've been just as interesting to learn about how it affects the kids in modern times and have Jordan become more involved in the kids on the "inside".

The Tiger's Wife

The Flame Alphabet by Ben Marcus
 
Confusing, Boring, Slow
Laborious reading

This book was depressing from start to finish. The language was too heavy and symbolic, almost like the author is trying too hard. Some interesting insights, though.
