The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Inspiring, Interesting
Wonderful Book!!

Summer Island: A Novel by Kristin Hannah
Fun, Unconvincing, Optimistic
Easy read, but doesn't give a lot to discuss at the book club.

Some members of the club liked the interaction between mother and daughter, but others thought that this book was too predictable and hard to believe. You know how the book is going to end after you have read 1/3 of the book. The only reason I kept reading was to see if I was wrong -- I wasn't. This book didn't have a lot of meat that would lead to a nice discussion.

It took a while to get used to the writing style of the author, but once I was accustomed to the style the story was wonderful.

Great Book!

All of our members loved this book. While the topic of German occupation is not a light hearted topic, this book handles it in such a way that doesn't drag you down.

Agatha Christie

First thing to keep in mind when you start this book is when it was written. It isn't a modern day mystery book. It is Agatha Christie. The premise is unlike anything I have ever read before. I couldn't put it down. Our club hasn't meet on this book yet, but I have talked to a few members and everyone seems to be enjoying it. We have discussed reading some classics for a change of pace, so this was a nice start. I will be surprised if anyone in the club says that they figured out who the murderer was.

The Paris Wife

I had read Hemingway in High School and college, but really didn't know a lot about him and his life. This book makes you wonder how they lived such a wonderful life with so little money. It also makes you want to have lived in Paris with the Hemingways. They seem like they had such a great time, until the end, of course.
