My Reviews

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Fun, Interesting
We want to all go to Guernsey

We knew very little about Guernsey and this period in history. We loved the characters and the landscape.

South of Broad

The book is beautifully written but the characters weren't all believable and the dialogue didn't always sound authentic. There are many charming as well as disturbing parts.

A Lesson Before Dying

The book is one that is almost painful to read but so compelling you can't stop. Characters are so true and real and the story reminds us of racism in this country.

BReakfast at Tiffanys

Our book club thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and then watching the movie. Audrey Hepburn was a perfect Holly Golightly.

A Walk in the Woods

Modestly liked by the members of the group. The book is a humorous, sarcastic travelogue about folks unprepared for the hike.

Wonderful book discussion. All members enjoyed the book but related in different ways. Discussion rarely veered from book.

Everything Matters

Not everyone loved the book though many found it to be a page turner. Lively discussion regarding if you knew the world was going to end of a particular date, how would you live your life differently.

The Panther in the Basement

The group liked the book overall. Some liked the extensive details while others skipped bits of it. Adolescent main character was believable and appreciated.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Overall the group liked the book very much. They thought Major Pettigrew was not only witty, but charming. Some thought it dragged a bit towards the end. Others appreciated it from cover to cover.

The Dovekeeper by Alice Hoffman

Beautiful, Epic, Informative
The Dovekeepers

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman was adored by many in the book club while others found it difficult to complete. The book is beautifully written, full of rich language and remarkable characters. Some found the book too wordy while others embraced the language. The book can contribute to a rich discussions about the role of women, the role of women, and life in ancient and modern times.
