Overall enjoyable, but some members did not like.

While the book is enjoyable and includes some interesting points for conversation, some of the club member found the book hard to relate to because of the academia setting. Also, most characters are interesting however a few are annoying.

I laughed but felt like something was missing

I finished the book thinking something was missing and that Tina Fey did not reveal much. that being said she did make me laugh and addressed many issues that make for great discussion. See dailydelirium for great discussion questions.

What you don't know is so interesting!

The book begins slowing and seems so dark but in third act it moves so quickly and you are completely rooting for the main characters! Lots of great things to discuss and much to learn about the North Korea. Read the author insights!
