The Light Between oceans

A thought-provoking story about moral choices and the realities of life. The whole club enjoyed it very much and we had a lengthy discussion about it.

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

While I enjoyed the writing and thought it was well written, I could not relate to the woman.
When I got halfway through it and they couldn't even put the old horse down humanely... I closed the book and gave it away.

The Rosie Project

Since I know many people with either some or all of the traits of the main characters, I found them amusing. Good story and well written, it was a quick read.

The Year of Fog

The subject is scary for parents, and many parts of the story were quite sad. But it is written well and you can surely relate throughout the story.

Unconvincing, Pointless, Boring

We enjoyed some things about the book, perhaps have read too many historical novels about self-centered creative artists. We booked an evening at a local Paint with Wine business and enjoyed that experience as it married well with the book.

Hard to start

We found it difficult to get into but the second half was better. It brought up questions of love and friendship, but we were quite exasperated by the main character.

Well written and engaging story

I loved this book and found I had to keep reading once engaged in the story. The main character was intriguing and relatable. I have lived through this 50s-60s era, and fought through it as we worked our way out of it. It was all about power and those who did not want to give it up. The society needed to change and it has. Though there are still pockets perpetuating these beliefs and behaviors...
