Another week, another TBR list!
I want to read The Dinner before the meeting of my RL Book Club on March 1st. I've only just sampled the first few pages, but plan to get seriously started this evening.
Before reading the next Lord Peter Wimsey book, I'm interested to get the scoop on the author, Dorothy L. Sayers. I'm looking forward to knowing more about her.
Speaking of interesting women, it's time to learn more about Mary Anning, the remarkable woman who found so many icthyosaur & pleisiosaur fossils. The Fossil Hunter will give me background for a fictional book about Ms. Anning, Remarkable Creatures, which I intend to read later this year. She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
Finally, two more books for my Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Project: When True Night Falls and The Fires of Heaven. I'm a few pages into WTNF and FoH is waiting for me at the library.
So much good stuff to read, it's difficult to choose which book to pick up first!
Good reading, my friends.
Paul and Claire meet his brother, Serge and his wife Babette, for dinner one evening to talk about their children. Serge is running for Prime Minister and wants to do damage control. The other three have other ideas.
The story is told in flashbacks of the relationships and events of Paul's life. I liked Paul but I never warmed to most of the characters. I have a lot of questions for them.
This is probably a book I would never have picked up on my own had it not been for my book club. There is a lot to discuss and think about in this book. How do people make the choices they do? Very thought provoking and timely.
