Are the other books by the "Gone Girl" and "Big Little Lies" authors more of the same? I enjoyed both authors' styles.
So far enjoyed "Gone Girl," "Big Little Lies," and the varied perspectives on each book! Thanks Andrea for a consistently interesting experience. Me: 46, Berkeley, dog-lover, opera-lover, mostly read the Economist, the New Yorker, and nonfiction.
Three cheers for benevolent dictatorships! Andrea manages to keep a room of 16 women (more or less) on track. It's great that the fairly rigid structure (for example there are 3 suggestions for the next book, and we just vote) means it keeps it from descending into chaos like many other book clubs that spend half the time batting about suggestions. Show up, discuss book, repeat-- the formula works!
