One old edition of this book has a blurb on the cover: “THE CLASSIC BESTSELLER ABOUT AMORAL YOUTH ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA!” Some may dismiss this book as teenage melodrama. After all, the author was only 18 when the book was published. The characters can seem larger than life (cooler than life, maybe), but they’re still very human.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, one of my favorite books.
Middlesex is a wonderful book that takes you on a journey unlike any other. Definitely worth reading
"I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day of January 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of l974. . .Middlesex: A Novel (Oprah's Book Club): Jeffrey Eugenides: 9780312427733: Amazon.com: Books
This is one of the strangest books we read in my bookclub but it has stuck with me.
The completeness of Atwood's dystopian world and the obvious proximity of its fundamentalist values to our own gives the book enormous power. But the real accomplishment is the insight into the psychological impact of that imagined world on women. That's where we really learn something about where we're living now.
My favorite Margaret Atwood novel. A beautiful mix of sci-fi, fem lit, and religion.

Definitely a book worth reading. It is a different kind of book and requires an open mind. But a great one none the less.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - read the Writer's Relief book review at goodreads.com
Winner of the Booker Prize. The pace is slow and you won't relate with the narrator, but don't let that stop you from picking this book up.

‘Never Let Me Go’ by Kazuo Ishiguro - The Fox Is Black
Eerie and fascinating novel
This is one of my favorite books ever. I don't want to spoil the story but there's an important underlying message here of the human tendency to, well, dehumanize others. Make them "less than" us so we can be "right" or "justified" in what we do.
Haunting novel. The narrator is a 5 year old boy. Probably the most upsetting book that I've read, but worth it.

about a woman that was kidnapped and had a child while in captivity. they escaped and the boy learns what the outside world is like other than the room he has known his whole life.
# 1 on my summer reading list...
Original idea and definitely a good book to discuss as a group. I had some issues with the main character but otherwise, an intriguing story.
My first Book Club book.
Definitely not upbeat, one of the most compelling books I've read this year told from the point of view of a young child...
“Sometimes when persons say definitely it sounds actually less true.” ― Emma Donoghue, "Room"
This is the first novel that I read on my Kindle, and it is an awesome story!
My friend highly recommended this book. I love the zillions of ideas to try.
