Book Club: February 2012

Tuesday, we got together to dicuss Healer by Carol Cassella. It was a small crowd. A lot of the women decided not to come since they didn’t finish the book. I can understand the problem too. It wasn’t that the book was bad. It was just hard to get through. I did a ton of skimming, which is why I’m choosing not to review it. I think maybe the premise was a good one, but the book lost focus a little. It seemed like everyone was on the same page about that. We didn’t talk too long about the book. We moved on to talking about other books: what we’d like to read in the future and books we recently read and loved. We haven’t found one we all just adored yet. I’m hoping the next one will fill that spot. Or, at least, I hope that we’ll read a book we all have strong feelings about, rather than all just saying “it was pretty good.” Our next meeting is on my mother’s birthday. That means cake!

Up next for the book club:

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

Nine-year-old Oskar Schell has embarked on an urgent, secret mission that will take him through the five boroughs of New York. His goal is to find the lock that matches a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11. This seemingly impossible task will bring Oskar into contact with survivors of all sorts on an exhilarating, affecting, often hilarious, and ultimately healing journey.
