February's Book Club review this month's titles

The Moth by Catherine Burns

Suzanne described how the book is made up of short 7 - 8 minute true stories. The book is based on a group of Americans, each telling a true life story one after another. Suzanne “loved it” and described the book as having “life affirming stories about death”. Suzanne gave the book 10/10

Leda thought it was an “easy read – it’s like they are speaking directly to you”. Rated 8/10

Claire enjoyed the book and particularly enjoyed the story about the man who went to space as it “describes the isolation he felt” However, Claire felt that you “lose part of the impact because it’s written down as it’s meant to be spoken”. Rated 7/10

Everyone who read the book enjoyed it and recommended reading it.

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

This was another popular book with the group.

Steven was “captivated by the story”. Steven really liked the characters and found them very convincing, particularly May as she deals with problems in an interesting way by singing “Oh Susannah”. Steven felt the “second half of the book was not as magical as the first half”. Rated 8/10

Sue was “enjoying the book so far” and identified that it has “similar themes to To Kill A Mocking Bird”.

Rachel also enjoyed the book and it also reminded Rachel of To Kill A Mockingbird. Rated 7/10

Kim “loved it and thought it was really magical” but wasn’t sure why exactly. Rated 8/10

Sarah “really enjoyed the book and found it an easy read” Rated 7/10
