  1. I loved this book and thought it was so well-written! Great pick for your book club!

  2. I really loved this book, the mix of humor and war, and I thought it made for a great discussion. I’ll be posting a wrap up of the book club meeting tomorrow, though you did a great job of summing it up already.

  3. this has been sat languishing on my kindle, I will get round to reading it, as as soon as I can. thanks for the reminder.

  4. I have a feeling that your book club reads a little more literature than mine!

  5. Eggs, huh? I was interested in the eggs as soon as you mentioned them so I’m glad your book club addressed it. Although the story sounds like it bounces from serious to somewhat humorous at times, it does sound like a good discussion book.

    • We really had a great discussion; one of the best ones so far. I like the combination of humor and serious. I thought it worked well.

  6. I loved this book when I read it last year. Great review!

  7. So envious of your book club — the convo sounds marvelous. You and Anna have me hankering for this book!

  8. The book sounds like a must read and your book club sounds fantastic!

    • Thanks, Kathy. I really enjoyed this book and it was a good selection for the book club. Book Club is even better than I’d hoped it would be. Such a great, dynamic group.

  9. I liked the way the pace of the book accelerated; it was like what I imagine war to be, speeding everything up until you have no time to make sense of anything.

    • I enjoyed this book and didn’t mind the cinematic pace at the end of the book. I was more bothered by the author’s intentionally misleading prologue.
