January Book Club

Good News Everyone! 


We had a poll for this month and you picked The Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed!

From Amazon:

"The Crescent Moon Kingdoms, home to djenn and ghuls, holy warriors and heretics, are at the boiling point of a power struggle between the iron-fisted Khalif and the mysterious master thief known as the Falcon Prince. In the midst of this brewing rebellion a series of brutal supernatural murders strikes at the heart of the Kingdoms. But these killings are only the earliest signs of a plot for the Throne of the Crescent Moon that threatens to turn the great city of Dhamsawwaat, and the world itself, into a blood-soaked ruin."

We will be meeting at Comicazi on Highland Ave in Davis Square. There is metered parking all along Highland as well as a public lot on Day Street near Redbones and across the street from Orleans restaurant. There is also T access and bus connections.

See you there!

-Josh

    Very lively discussion, as is usually the case when not everyone likes the book.

      I agree that it started slowly. I liked it a lot though.

      I'm not giving up. After the first chapter, it could either stay the same, get worse, or get better. I'm hoping for get better. I'm reading "Deadly Decisions" by Kathy Reichs and that one is going very well from the start.

      It's not too long, so you do have plenty of time to finish.

    I thought it was a graphic novel?

    December 12, 2013

    • Yair M.

      @Swati: Apparently not. Quoth the author: "I'd LOVE a graphic novel version, but that's something that seems to happen only with mega-bestselling authors" (https://www.goodreads....­).

      The second book was said to be out mid-2013. Given that it's not out and it's the end of 2013, when will it be out and how much farther back does that push book three?

      December 13, 2013

  • swati

    where are the polls? I would like to vote for the next one.

    December 9, 2013

    • Josh

      I haven't put up the February and March polls yet. Those will hopefully go up before Thursday.

      2 · December 10, 2013

    • Jon W.

      For February, what might the topic of the poll be?
