Defending Jacob: A Novel by William Landay
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Interesting, Insightful
Defending Jacob

We found that the book was either well liked or not liked very much it received numerical ratings of 4, 7.5 and 9. It was well written and edited well. the thing about this book is that it allowed for everyone to have an opinion on who did it since the innocence or guilt was never really decided. there was much discussion on the family dynamics and why.

The Husband's secret

This was read by our book club this month. it was both liked and disliked. I would say the majority of our readers liked this book a great deal and a few of them disliked it . This is one book that you either hate or love and there really is no in between. Set in Australia in today's time it is the story of three women and how they were affected by the secret o one husband. these women really did not know each other. The story is confusing at the start with all three of the characters being introduced and no connecting thread introduced at the beginning. This was off putting to some of our members. Of the female characters we did not find one with really redeeming qualities that would make them really likeable. After much discussion, we decided that they did not have to be likeable to work in the story. With out giving the story away, we all agreed that the epilog was a unique way of pulling all the loose threads together. .

The Racketeer by John Grisham

The Racketeer

This was not a typical John Grisham book. our group for the most part really liked this book for many reasons. One was the way the story flowed. Another was the way Grisham kept some of the character relationships a "secret" until the end. There were many different aspects to be explored: the RICO part of the story, how Max was able to do what he did from prison and after, the way that the police handled or did not handle things, etc.
As in any group there were those who did not like this book simply because it was not their "cup of tea" so to speak.
