Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

    Saw this today: Kate Atkinson's new book will be the story of Teddy (the youngest brother in Life after Life, the pilot). I would read it anyway because I liked the first book a lot, but it'll be interesting to see if she does the same thing again with the time jumps/redos and to see Ursula viewed through someone else's lens. http://www.thebookseller.com/news/new-kate-atkinson-revisit-todd-family.html

    I was thinking about how much I enjoyed our discussion at this book club meeting. It made me realize, again, how reading is such an individual, personal experience. Although we are all reading the same book, we all bring with us our own experiences - stories our parents told us (or didn't tell us), courses and studies we have taken, family successes and tragedies, our cultural and national identities - and all of these things flavour how we read, interpret and come to terms with the novel. What a delight it is to be able to share some of these differing experiences and interpretations, and maintain a connection with each other as different as we are! Thanks again!

    What a great discussion! Although I didn't get to read the entire book I am more excited to finish it now after hearing all of you talk about it! Thanks for being so open in your discussion and passionate about this book ladies!

    A not so quite original idea, but still enjoyable read. Author has a way with words that makes me drawn to find out more. Excellent recommendation!

      Hi Lea, not much of an agenda we just all get a tea or coffee and then sit and talk about the book. I bring a list of book club questions just in case we run out of things to say but mostly it is just a casual conversation.

      Got the book today, but I see the date changed from the 8th to the 1st ... guess I had better get cracking!

  • Jill

    Aw, I am sorry, I had thought we were meeting the first Tuesday of the month, so I kept the 1st free, but scheduled another meeting for the 8th of April. Hopefully next time....

      The original person who couldn't make the first Tuesday now can...I will move it back.
