It’s a snowy day here in Syracuse. The first we’ve had so far this season. The sun is shining and it is just gorgeous.
I wanted you to know that not just Book Klatch participants, but everyone who loves books and reading are invited to join us on this book discussion blog. Anything you want to share that will add to our reading knowledge and enjoyment will be greatly appreciated. I have made several categories for articles: Authors, Titles, and the names of the books we will read each month in Klatch. So, hopefully, we can get discussion going in an organized manner.
I’m new at this so be patient with me and give me feedback about how it is working. So excited and hoping you are too.
I just finished reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follett for our January meeting. I was surprised how quickly I read it considering the length, but I just couldn’t put the book down. I can hardly wait for the next installment in the Century trilogy to come out sometime this year.
I didn’t love the writing and some of the interaction between people was very unnatural and a few of the situations were amazing contrived. But the characters and their circumstances were so compelling I really felt like I got to know them and had an emotional attachment. Also found it so interesting and affirming that some of the same feelings and situations that were experienced by the characters during WW I are taking place today as a result of 10 years of war. As my mother always said, “There’s nothing new in the world.” It’s the same old story, just a different time, place, and people. What do you think?
