Book Club Round Up

The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards - I REALLY enjoyed book club last night. It is always spiritually rejuvenating to me to spend time in this group of such beautiful women whom I just grow to love and admire more as the years (years already!) go by. Our discussion was a pretty lively one, though I'm left not sure how many of us enjoyed the book. But I do know that all of us really disliked most of the key characters in this book. I don't know about them, but I really did not like this book at all and was glad when it was over and I could move on. But I loved the book club meeting about it last night, which leaves me with a much better "taste in my mouth" about the book, and talking about it definitely pointed out to me some things that were more artfully done in the novel than I'd realized and made me appreciate it more. I think I end up giving it a... C+
