I think that during the 3 hours we were there, we spent maybe 15 minutes talking about the book which was an enjoyable read, though we all felt it wasn't "deep" enough considering the subject matter. We didn't feel connected to the characters. Someone described it as being on onlooker to the action which is very interesting considering the writer is a writer of screenplays. He also wrote Braveheart.
Our book club is always a lot of fun. We covered a great many topics today----
the 2nd reading at Mass today
pediatricians & prenatal care
a couple of Diana Gabaldon's books
the HHS mandate and birth control
food issues and picky eaters
people who can't smell
marriages and convalidations
adoptions from China
---I'm sure I'm forgetting some! And several of those topics went on for quite a while; I couldn't even begin to tell you what happened in the side conversations I wasn't privy to!
Our next book, which was also one of the topics (because some people have already started reading it!), isThe Snow Child: A Novel. Have you read it? Was it good?
Whether the book is good or not, I'll be looking forward to book club next month anyway because of the wonderful time spent with my friends!
