November Book Meeting - The Lovely Bones (Alice Sebold)

 

Hi Guys- just a quick note for our next reading. This book was suggested by Laura, thanks you Laura for that. I am sure it will be a great experience!

Below is a quick summary of the book

The Lovely Bones is a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold. It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being raped and murdered, watches from her personal Heaven as her family and friends struggle to move on with their lives while she comes to terms with her own death. The novel received much critical praise and became an instant bestseller. A film adaptation of the novel, directed by Peter Jackson who personally purchased the rights, was released in American theatres on January 15, 2010, and in the UK on February 15, 2010.

    I suggest the night circus by erin morgenstern. Not because she's got the same name as me but because I've just started it and I'm not sure which way it's going to go but the narrative style is very interesting.

    Hey Leyla- actually we do read the book before meeting; we meet at St Germain in the cafe n discuss about it in very laid back/nice atmosphere. You can still attend even though you did not finish the book - the only risk is you might know the end before reading it!

      That's a shame to miss out Layla - it's a great book, not too thick, and I found I couldn't put it down so you might get further than you think!

    Hi there,

    I'm interested in attending but first I just want to check something!
    Do we have to read the whole book before the meeting or do we read the book together at each book club meeting? I know that book clubs can take on different formats so I just wanted to check that.

    Thanks a lot!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
