book club.

We had book club a couple of weeks ago and I need to post about it.
Tami hosted us at her house to discuss Life of Pi by Yann Martel.  We ate a very yummy French toast breakfast casserole with cream cheese.  So good.  

I kind of liked this book...in my opinion the first half of the book has nothing to do with the second half of the book {actually it does have to do with the second half of the book but you don't have to read the first half to understand the second half of the book}.  I seriously think you could start reading at about chapter 23 and not miss anything!  The entire book takes a big twist in the second to last chapter..so you have to read the entire book {mom} before making a judgment on the book.  Tara brought up a good point at our discussion about the author - she wanted to know more about the author and his background and what inspired him to write this kind of a book - this book was published in 2001 and is such a popular and controversial book {maybe controversial is not the right word...very talked about book by people.  It leaves you with a very strong opinion as to whether you love or hate the book}.

 And for those of you who have read the book...I don't think it was people on the boat with Pi - I want to believe it really was animals :)   


I give this book four stars out of five.
Tamil made these cute bookmarks for us.  Thanks Tami for a great book and discussion.


Next we are reading The Double Helix by James D. Watson
Should be interesting.
