July Book Discussion

Hi Everyone,
By request, we will be reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett for our July discussion. Here is a brief description...A researcher at a pharmaceutical company, Marina Singh journeys into the heart of the Amazonian delta to check on a field team that has been silent for two years--a dangerous assignment that forces Marina to confront the ghosts of her past. 

Hope you enjoy the book.

    This was my first time with this group, and am I am happy to categorize the discussion as VERY lively. The people were obviously well-read, adding to the discussion when we went off topic, comparing and contrasting with other books (and they seemed knowledgeable about current events).
    The only reason for the 4 stars is that I wanted to give this group 4 & 3/4. and the "rate and review" only allows the format only full-star ratings.

    Enjoyed hearing other opinions about the book and airing my own views. It's always interesting to see how other people can interpret the exact same thing so differently.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
