Playing catch-up...Last months book choices





Last month, I was the one responsible for choosing our reading matter....

I wasn't however, responsible for getting us banned from Charlie's Chowder House. That would have been my good mate, Maria.

I'll not go into full details.. lets just say that men's bathrooms were involved and an irrate chowder house owner.....

On to the book choices.

The first book I read was The Observations by Jane Harris and I found it to be an okay book. I've read a lot worse, but I've read a lot better too. It had enough in it to intrigue me to reading til the end; which was, on the whole, satisfactory and the majority of the characters were like-able enough. On the whole, I think I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

I haven't yet finished the second book which is The testament of Gideon Mack by James Robertson. This one I think is by far a more superior book. The writing style is more pleasing, the story is interesting and although when I began the book, I didnt expect to like the character of Gideon, I actually do. I can't give a fair rating yet, as I have yet to finish the book...but, judging by what i've read so far, I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

Our next meeting is this wednesday, and I'll be sure to post the new choices.

hehe.. very good memory MIR...lol... i wondered if anyone would recall it...lol

This incident was far more innocent though... hehe

When we told the Chowder house story to a couple of members that hadnt been there, they found it very funny. One of the girls said that she'd never been banned from anywhere before...I kept silent about my own little escapade...hehe
