June Book Club

  • Jun 21, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will be reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. More about the book: On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. Sadly, she dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Clearly history (and Kate Atkinson) have plans for her: In Ursula rests nothing less than the fate of civilization.

Wildly inventive, darkly comic, startlingly poignant — this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best, playing with time and history, telling a story that is breathtaking for both its audacity and its endless satisfactions.

    Another author I am following is Isabel Allende. I liked her Island Beneath the Sea.

    Yes, that is what we do. However, you are welcome to attend regardless of whether you read the book. Just be aware that we discuss the ending.

    Can you tell me how your book club works? Read the entire book before the meetup and then discuss at the meetup ?

    I am beginning to read Life After Life. Looking forward to meeting the group and discussion.

    I loved this book and it can be read on many levels. It is confusing at first but stick with it.
