December 2012 Classic Book Discussion

BOOK INFORMATION

Title: The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett
Genre: Fiction – Crime
Summary: The best known of Hammett's novels, The Maltese Falcon centers on San Francisco detective Sam Spade, who is tough enough to bluff the toughest thugs and hold off the police. He risks his reputation when a beautiful woman begs for his help. In addition, Spade's partner is murdered on a stakeout; the cops blame him for the killing, a beautiful redhead with a heartbreaking story appears and disappears, grotesque villains demand a payoff he can't provide, and everyone wants a fabulously valuable gold statuette of a falcon. Who has it, and what will it take to get it back? Spade's solution is as complicated as the motives of the seekers assembled in his hotel room, but the truth can be a cold comfort indeed.
Approx. Page Count: 217 pages
Suggested by: Deborah M.

    Interesting, friendly, and multifaceted discussion. As usual I learned so much more than I would have known about the book, the times, and the author.

    That sounds way too easy. I'll probably find it challenging and fun.

    Regina,
    For the meeting on December 20 on the book God's Grace, for which you are leading the discussion with questions, all you have to do is have a list of questions for attendees to answer to get a discussion going. You can write the questions yourself or pull them from a website.
    I hope this helps. Any questions, let me know. :-)

    Anthony do you have any suggestions on how I should set up presentation?
