CH/Durham Book Club - Runners Up CANCELED!!

CANCELED

March's book was selected from our last six runners up from votes. We decided to give these books a second chance to get read, and the luckiest of them all was Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh. The book was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2008. We'll be meeting on the Durham side of town, and Caroline will be leading discussion. We're still looking for a co-discussion leader, you should volunteer.

Here's the link to Amazon and Wikipedia and a short blurb:

The story is set prior to the Opium Wars, on the banks of the holy river Ganges and in Calcutta. The author compares the Ganges to the Nile, the lifeline of the Egyptian civilization, attributing the provenance and growth of these civilizations to these selfless, ever-flowing bodies. He portrays the characters as poppy seeds emanating in large numbers from the field to form a sea, where every single seed is uncertain about its future.
