  "The Summer Guest" by Chapterscam (see profile) 09/22/10

So much to talk about! Telling "white lies", keeping secrets; assisted suicide; "snowbirds"; wealth; authors' attitude towards life; DNR; bravery; conscientious objectors; the gov't's insufficient support of returning soldiers.

 
  "Very Different Than The Passage" by celia4120 (see profile) 07/24/12

I had low expectations for this book, because I didn't like The Passage. This book could not have been more different, and turned out to be one of my favorites so far. I was most impressed by the ending, which was so eloquently written.

 
  "Variety of narrators keep it fresh" by carolkaskin (see profile) 12/02/17

The changing narrators allow the reader to get a full perspective on the plot. Many parallel characters/foils for readers to use to see all sides of story. The book club members liked this book a lot for its overall positive outlook on life.
