29: A Novel by Adena Halpern
 
Book Club Recommended
Fun
fun and fanciful

Following along in the footsteps of the movie big and freaky Friday,this is another tale of a trip through time. I like the perspective in this one though as it really gets you thinking of your own relationship with people outside of your generation and reactions to changes from their point of view in "your" world. Not a deep storyline but still gets you thinking.

spellbinding

not your typical story of vampires and witches...the history pieces woven throughout the story make it more "real". You will fall in love with the characters in an instant!

a constant curiousity

this book will peak your interest after each chapter as it delves further into the lives of the characters as you find yourself asking the question "what really happened?" and wanting to read further to the surprising ending

into the wild

an interesting view into the what could've been story of the "wild west". One that not many people think about. I liked that it was from a woman's point of view; even with it being fiction based on some true events, not a lot of these stories are told that way

The Peach Keeper: A Novel by Sarah Addison Allen

a delicious tale

Whimiscal tale about discovering who you are meant to be and how others should see you; wrapped up in a town of family secrets and new romance.

Poorly Written, Interesting, Confusing
Bizarre

I liked the writing because the description of the town and the characters stick in your mind; but the overall story was a little bizarre and some of the events in it unbelievable.

a brave new future?

I like when authors can paint a version of the future to be considered. The Society in this tale thinks they can control and maintain a "perfect" community based on people's stats. This story gives into the fact that people still have emotions and those can ultimatley not be controlled. Is there a sequel though? I was left wondering what happens next?

travels into your heart

although it is about time travel,it's really a love story and you feel like you really get to know these characters. This story has a true life quality to it with also the unknown of time travel. I totally fell in love with it!

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Interesting, Dark, Pointless
creepy curiousity

you keep reading thinking where is this creepy tale going and then it ends very spooky. I kept imagining the girls like whisps of air barely visable to those around them...the whole story felt very eerie.

Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri

unexpected is right...

I'm not a short story reader so this was different for me. Initially I didn't know all of the stories were about Indian women per characters it seemed like I wouldn't be able to relate but its all about relationships and that applies to all.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay

Sarah's Key

Good Group discussion for this one! It was very intriguing and kept you wanting to read more to find out the "mystery" behind the story and how all of the pieces fit together. The author did a good job of trasisitioning from past to present.
