June Geek Book Club - The Rook

The Park Road Books/Charlotte Geek Book Club will be reading The Rook by Daniel O'Malley for their June meeting. Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization and this person wants her dead.

(Don't forget, you can pick up the book for 20% off at Park Road Books!)

    Work is refusing to release me from its clutches. It was a really good book...

    Unfortunately I won't make it to this one either. I came down with a nasty cold and I'm keeping it to myself. The book was really good though.

    I was looking forward to the club tonite, but I got passes for "Monsters University" tonite. (shame-faced) Free movie passes I can't resist! Enjoyed this book, can't wait to hear what we'll be reading next!!

    I wish there was a 'maybe'. I did purchase and read the book, but I have a meeting tomorrow night I may not be able to get out of.

      I'm finding that it reads very quickly, so hopefully you'll get through a lot of it! See you there!

    The bookstore I went to today only had one copy, so if you need to buy the book you might not want to wait until the last minute.

    • Demi M.

      I was in Park Road Books today and they had plenty--five at least. Plus the discount! Fret not, Charlotte is well stocked.

    I'm looking forward to discussing something relatively new this time - hope y'all can make it! We'll probably head down to Ed's again this time after, so plan accordingly. :)

      I missed all the fun at Ed's, will definitely plan on it this time!
