April 18 2013 Meetup: Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff by Christopher Moore

In our upcoming book, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, the absurdist author seeks to fill in the "lost years" of Jesus through the point of view of Jesus' childhood pal, "Levi bar Alphaeus who is called Biff".

Our March selection, A Passage to India, by E.M. Forster, was selected as one of the 100 greatest books of English literature. It is based on Forster’s experiences in India. Our discussion centered around the social class system that was in place during the British rule over the Indian Subcontinent. This was the main theme of the book. The story takes place during the 1920’s. We agreed that had we read the book when it was published, in 1924, it might have been a more interesting read. The characters were well developed but some of their actions were not easily understood. In general, we enjoyed reading the book, but would probably not read it again.

See you next month, Abbi & Ron
