They are five women from different walks of life, embracing the challenge of change. And as they share their hopes and fears and triumphs, they will hold fast to the true magic of the book club—friendship.
My Thoughts: From the very beginning of The Book Club, I was drawn into the lives of the five women facing life and its challenges, and how their love of books was just a tiny piece of what held them together.
Their stories flow alternately, and we see how their lives intersect, especially when they come together in times of joy and times of trouble.
Set in the 1990s, in suburban Chicago, the author shows us their lives in great detail, from the ordinary moments to the tragic ones. In the very beginning, at Tom’s funeral, something happens that puzzles a few of the characters, and I kept waiting for that secret to reveal itself, for the reader to find out what that was about. I had my suspicions, but they wouldn’t be realized until the story began to draw to an end.
A story of friendship, struggles, transitions, and a celebration of life…at times the tale was tedious, but the emotions and situations were real, spotlighting all the flaws of ordinary people and the choices they make along the way. 4.0 stars.
These five women come from different walks of life, but in the end, they see how much they need each other. It becomes more than a book club - it is a support group for these ladies at the turning points in their lives.
I liked this book. My mom deemed it "just okay", and I agree with her. It was a nice easy read during a busy holiday month. The writing was just so/so, but it passed the time.
If you are looking for a beach read, this may be a good one for you.
