Interesting, Dramatic, Epic
Slow at first but worth it.

One of our members couldn't get through the first part of the book and I kept telling her to get through it because it gets really good and interesting. I think it is a great book for a book club.

Bee Season: A Novel by Myla Goldberg
 
Dramatic, Boring, Informative
Didn\'t enjoy.

I don\'t believe many people in our book club enjoyed this read. Never got into it.

Intriguing Morality Tale

Enjoyable read but there were many british and french terms that brought me out of the story having to look at the footnotes provided in the book. Was a little distracting. It\\\'s a classic nonetheless.

Very interesting

By the second chapter I was completely into it. Finished very quickly, just couldn't wait to see what happened next!

Very quick and fun read. But if a book club is looking for something that is really thought-provoking this isn't the book they should choose.

A Twisted Tale

An atmospheric novel that delves deep into the lives of the Blackwood family in their isolated estate and the surrounding villagers.

Dark and disturbing. Loved it!

Took me a little bit to get into it at the very beginning but then couldn't put it down til the very end!

 
Never really got into it.

I've read quite a few of Anne Rice books and this was definitely my least favorite.

Enjoyed it but didn't love it.

Much of the story was very interesting but it was a bit confusing at times with the lengthy Spanish names that the writer sometimes to referred to the characters by the first name and other times the last name. And it abruptly switched back to the past at times and I was unsure of whether or not it was past or present time. I was glad I read it though.

Very inspirational

Having lived all my life around the Seattle area I enjoyed this very much knowing all the places described. My brother rowed and also coached so it was interesting to learn more about it. Such a great story, hard to believe it is all true. A couple ladies in my book club didn\\\\\\\'t appreciate the book as much as I did.

Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Dark, Interesting
Very different

Unique plot and cleverly written. A couple plot points I found a little far-fetched but would definitely recommend.
