We had a modest turnout for our discussion of Noah's Compass, by Anne Tyler. Maureen, Michelle, Lois, Mary, and Susan attended.
To some readers, this story and character were too lackluster, and they did not enjoy reading about someone who had such a passive approach to life. To others, the book gave a glimpse, sometimes humorous, of the struggles of real life.
For August, some of us will read State of Wonder, by Ann Patchett. It is not a group selection because the book must be returned to DCLC by August 26, which is too early for our September meeting.
However, if you've read State of Wonder or would like to delve into it this August, let us know what you think of the book!
Reminder: Live meeting to pick up A Change in Altitude, by Anita Shreve, and to discuss additional selections for the coming months on a special day: Tuesday, September 3, 12:05 p.m., at DCLC.
don't read these comments if you haven't yet finished the book; they may
