The list author says: "I'm in a book club with a group of ten friends. We started in 2005. I decided in 2013 that I would update this list to help others in clubs pick good reads for their clubs. I've just picked the best. The most current is at the end of the list."
"Another MUST READ in my opinion. Told through letters, it's another WW2 book. You don't have to love history to love this book. Wonderful and an easy read, but great for those that like some substance."
"If you haven't read this since high school, do everyone a favor and pick it. It's such a wonderful book. We all loved reading it again - some members for the first time. One of the few books all members enjoyed."
"Another MUST READ. It's nonfiction. There is so much to discuss about cells used for science, 1950 racial issues, health insurance, the south today. We all enjoyed it - even those with not much interest in medicine."
"Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley lived in Chicago in the 1920's then moved to Paris. Their lives were not what we thought. Great discussion from this book about our perceptions of great novelists."
