If you’ve read any of these, feel free to comment on them:
Perfume: The Story of a Murder by Patrick Suskind – our first meeting was not a success considering how everyone hated the novel and the person who suggested the book didn’t even show up! I ended up giving away my copy to a member on Paperback Swap.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Ah what a classic! Most of us enjoyed this and it was certainly a breath of fresh air from the previous meeting. We had a ‘Page to Screen’ night for this one.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini – This was another enjoyable meeting and the book mostly got positive remarks. I enjoyed it but didn’t feel it merited a re-read so I put on my PBS account.
The Giver by Lois Lowry – Though written for juveniles, our group had much to discuss with this one. If it ever gets turned into a film, I’d love to have a ‘Page to Screen’ night for it.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier – Classic, gothic style novel that was most likely a love-note to Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, this book had mixed reviews. Obviously one of those novels you either really enjoy or loathe to pieces.
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams – our first play discussion and sadly I missed it but I heard it was a good meeting. One day I’d like to see this play with the group.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – This was a rather interesting book about an a boy dealing with Autism. Most of the group enjoyed it. I thought it was fine up to a point. Guess I was in the mood for a mystery and I didn’t get one.
