My Reviews

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Fun
well received

We all enjoyed this book. It was fun reading from the perspective of a set of letters.

 
Fun, Boring, Pointless
Not For Club Reading

This book was light and fun, but didn't have the depth that we anticipated when we selected it for club reading. Left me a little disappointed.

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
 
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Gloomy, Dark
A Catcher In The Rye

Many of our members had read this before, but found it a much different story than they did previously. While no one could trust Holden, the narrator and main character, most felt that he was a likable person.

A Wild Sheep Chase: A Novel by Haruki Murakami
 
Adventurous, Fantastic, Insightful
Wild sheep chase for answers

I did not enjoy this story as much as other Murakami titles. My book club has women with prefrences for all different styles of writing, but I think this selection was a little too vague. I was able to find some questions to ask, but no answers to give, and everyone Really Really wanted some answers!
Writing is beautifully done - props to the translator!

Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner
 
Book Club Recommended
Epic, Insightful, Slow
Worth the effort

This is a book that reminds me of being back in school. The writing is clearly superior and it us evident why it has won awards, but it was a chore to finish. The main characters were hard to like and some of the chapters dragged on, very much like life itself can be/do. This may have been one of the best discussionsolution our book club has had and I am glad I had the chance to read this book.
