Book Choices for May 2010

From: Elizabeth I.

Hello All,

Below are the fiction choices for May. We will vote at our next meeting. If you cannot make the meeting please email me your votes.


"Little Bee" by Chris Cleave (271 pages) Little Bee by Chris Cleave is about two women who meet unexpectedly on a beach. Little Bee is a Nigerian refugee and Sarah is a British magazine editor.

"The Soloist" by Mark Salzman (284 pages) Not to be confused with a recent movie of the same title. As an adolescent Renne Sundheimer had the musical world at his feet. Then, suddenly, at the age of eighteen, his gift deserted him, and for the last fifteen years he has made his living as a cello teacher. Suddenly, Renne's life is altered by two disparate events: becoming a juror in a trial for the killing of a Buddhist monk; and becoming the teacher of a another cello prodigy, an unprepossessing nine-year old Korean boy.

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night" by Mark Haddon (240pages) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon is a mystery told from the perspective of a teenager with an intellectual disability.

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist" by M Hamid (208 pages) This is an intelligent and absorbing 9/11 novel, written from the perspective of Changez, a young Pakistani whose sympathies, despite his fervid immigrant embrace of America, lie with the attackers.


Thanks,

See you on Wednesday, April 21st at 6:30pm.

-Lisa
