A Visit from the Goon Squad
Date Posted: 2/7/2012 | Go To Book Page

The more we discussed this book, the more we liked it!  Some of us are re-reading.  We think it can be approached as a set of short stories.  One member brought a diagram of the characters, and their relationship to each other.  Two points of view as to what is the Goon Squad.  Give it a read and decide.

American Pastoral
Date Posted: 9/10/2013 | Go To Book Page

Lively discussion by our club.  May universal themes, and compared it to F. Scott Fitzgeralds Tender is the Night.  Roth touches on many sore memories of the turbulent sixties, and the seeming perfection of the American Dream in the fifties.  It really is a burden to be marked as beautiful and gifted by our society, as was the case for the swede and his wife.

By Kathleen Grissom: The Kitchen House: A Novel
Date Posted: 10/9/2012 | Go To Book Page

We were surprised how swiftly the author brought us into the time and place. We felt like flies on the wall.  We had doubts about a white Irish girl living with the kitchen slaves, bet we became believers.  The author wrote extremely well for her first book.

Challenging read, enjoyed by all. We recommend The Overcoat, also by Gogol, a short story. Similar to Dickens in the minute descriptions and character studies.

Enjoyed by all of our readers. Many of us laughed out loud. Some dark humor. Good discussions on many topics covered in the book: friendship, moral code, empathy for characters, do the times we live in shape our character, and nature or nurture, which forms ou into adults.
