Forum: Book Club Recommendations

Book club recommendation

I would recommend "Blindness" by Jose Saramago. There are so many themes and aspects to discuss, and whether the members love it or hate it, no one will be ambivalent. I've discussed it in many book clubs over the years, and it always leads to a great discussion.

Here are a few of the books my groups really enjoyed.

1. Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl
2. The God of Animal by Aryn Kyle
3. Hunger Point by Jillian Medoff
4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

All of them were books the majority of the group enjoyed (which was always more difficult than anticipated) that also started great discussions.

Anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, thought provoking to say the least and a challenge to read at times. All together his works make for at a minimum an interesting discussion as Shawna said about Jose Saramago and at best some very interesting insight for yourself and the base of others.

Sounds like a fun place to be, in your book reading circle, wish I were close.

Same book I always recommend, Outlander by Diana's genre bending, a little sci-fi, a little romance, historical fiction, a little has it all!!
