these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Book Club the Fifth

I made this: Avid Reader at 6:04 pm
Book Club the Fifth - BOOKN00B - 18-04-2010
Agreed on: The Island by Victoria Hislop (BookN00b)
- Firman by Sam Savage

SPECIAL GUEST STAR - Lela - who is now 100 pages into The Book Thief!

  • hated the first chapter, which enraged her, resulting in her casting aside the book for about a month. 
  • eventually went back to it, and ended up quite enjoying it!
  • particularly liked the relationship between Norman and Jerry. 
  • thought the idea was really clever, and thought the whole environment was very well researched.
  • liked the history
  • thought the character was a bit up himself, though he was a thinking reading rat, so fair enough really. 
Neither would search out Sam Savage again, but would certainly read something of his at another point in the future.

  • loved the book references throughout.
  • thought the world created was very well described from the perspective of a rat
  • found it very sad
BOOKELF - 6/10
BOOKN00B - 7/10

Agreed that the next book would be The Island by Victoria Hislop, a book that felt was of great interest to BOOKN00B as she had visited the island in question, and seen the featured sanatorium.
