In Phoenix, I was a member of the “No Vampire, Anti-Suck bookclub.” This coven of librarians came together monthly to enjoy dinner and review a book of choice. The books we read were across the spectrum, introducing me to a variety of authors and topics. I’ve had a gaping intellectual void without this monthly meeting — and the challenge of finishing a book and being prepared with something mildly entertaining to add to the conversation.
Enter the “14ers Book Club.” We met for the first time this month to review “The Tiger’s Wife.” While just two of us finished the book, everyone had a strong opinion. The views varied from “fascinating” to “more dialog!” Most members agreed the author’s storytelling ability was unbelievably well-crafted, although at times the timeline was confusing.
Out of a scale of 1-14, the book ranked a 9.5. (I gave it an 11. I can’t wait to read what she writes next.)
Next month’s book: “The Unbearable Lightness of Being.”
