My Reviews

 
This book generated a very thoughtful discussion.

This book club is for college bound high school students. They all said they found this book challenging to read but it generated one of our best discussions.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
 
Adventurous, Interesting, Brilliant
Narrative ok but slow. Only one fully developed human character. Themes hard to care about. What happened?

 
An intriguing morality tale. Lots to discuss.

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
 
Informative, Dramatic, Insightful
Despite some small misses, Hosseini is a master storyteller. Lots to talk about.

Suggestion: Read with The Kite Runner and discuss the author's successful characterization (or not) of male vs. female characters.

 
Book Club Recommended
Interesting, Dramatic, Adventurous
Our club split on this one. I give it three stars--I liked it.

For clubs interested in how gender roles and the early loss of a mother/mother figures affects work, relationships, and artistic pursuits.
