Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave
 
Dramatic, Insightful, Interesting
Liitle Bee

I was excited to read this book, until I began. The alternating point of view chapters were tedious. I found Sarah to be completely unlikeable. I had no compassion or feeling for the woman at all, which makes it hard to get into a book where she is the main character. I found Charlie's speech annoying. I wish more focus had been on Little Bee and her journey; or on Andrew and his illness. I did not care about the immoral Sarah's choices.

Loved it!

This was a fun read. The women were delightful. CeeCee was a girl to be admired. This was a great story from a different point of view!

Jack is amazing, as is his mother. This story was different, but likeable. A different kind of read.

Such a let down!

I was thrilled when our club chose this book. The reviews were wonderful. No one in the group finished the book. I am an English major, and I put the book down! It just didn't move along well.

Midwives (Oprah's Book Club) by Chris Bohjalian

Midwives

At first, I had a hard time getting into this book. The graphic details were too much. I never saw the word vulva and other female anatomy parts in print so repeatedly. As I read, I became deeply involved in Connie's story. I was anxious to learn if her mother, Sybil, was indeed guilty.This book was well written. I really enjoyed it.

Far fetched, but worthwhile

I enjoyed this book. I think some of it was unbelievable, but I guess it could happen. I can't imagine living like Christine.
