Life of Pi Book Club Pick.
This Sunday the red carpet will be rolled out for Hollywood's elite. Three of the six nominees for Best Picture are based on novels. If you haven't had a chance to see the movies yet, this is your opportunity to dive into some fabulous stories. And since the authors hardly ever get a mention on Oscar night, the least you can do is buy their novel. Last year I nearly went through the television when everyone who accepted an award for HUGO, never once uttered the name, Brian Selznik. I guess an increase in sales is acknowledgement enough. And the nominees are... Life of Pi The Silver Linings Playbook Les Miserables Personally, I'm rooting for Life of Pi, not only because Yann Martel is Canadian (hooray) but it is an amazing story with scenes that will stay with you long after you read the last page. I haven't seen the movie yet because I loved the book so much. Do you have a favorite book you'd like to see made into a movie? Besides your own, that is ;)
Author Frank McCourt's own childhood in his own voice, a desperate, Irish Catholic, impoverished childhood. You are living in their apartment, in their neighboorhood, in Brooklyn, through this book. Children can be the toughest survivors of situation - McCourt neither complains or accuses but rather forgives and laughs. It also reminds you that people really do not change.

Life of Pi
Life of Pi is one of my all-time favorite books. Drawing from religious philosophy, survival narratives such as Adrift by Steven Callahan, and (famously) Max and the Cats by Moacyr Scliar, it is an amazingly creative and complete work of its own. It’s an adventure novel, an allegory, an existential quest. Surreal, haunting, wrenching. Magical.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Pi Patel, a sixteen-year-old emigrant from India, finds himself aboard a lifeboat with a small menagerie of zoo animals, including a 450 pound hungry tiger named Richard Parker. This is a strange and beautiful story that defies conventional explanation - a story, as one character says - to make you believe in God.
The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes.

Arguably one of my favorite books... I could not put it down and can't wait to see what Ang Lee does with it.... in 11 more months!!
Read this book. Read it read it read it read it read it. But in all seriousness, this is one of my all time favorite books. If you can get past the first chapter or so (It’s slightly boring) it picks up and becomes incredibly fascinating. The book really helped me open my mind and see things in a different way. I would recommend this book to….everyone! :) OKAY OKAY ILL READ IT! We loved it as well.
2012 - Yann Martel - Life of Pi. I had run out of books when a colleague offered me full raid of their bookshelf before a long commute home. I'd heard about it and it has been on my 'to read' list, now I find it's very soon to be released as a film. Fantastic! Love reading the book before the film. I love this book - you wonder how far a book about a shipwrecked boy in a boat with a tiger can go, but I'm certainly still entertained :)
My all-time favourite book. Incredibly appealing for most ages.
Very good book; great book club discussion, also

Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
Book Club, Sarahskey, Sarah Key, Sarah S Key, Amazing Book, Reading List, Favorite Book, Books Book
Sarah's Key #sarahskey A great WWII book from the point of view of a jewish child living in France, and a present day journalist researching WWII.
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay - This is one of my favorite books so far. It was incredibly sad to read but really good too. It's one of those books that sticks with you.
Such an amazing book. Sarahs Key - She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he’d be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. “I’ll come back for you later. I promise.” -From Sarah’s Key, page 9-
Sarah's Key, another heartbreaking story, but a great read. Too read list.
Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay (June 2010) Book Club rating 4 out of 5
Sarah's Key.. this looks like an interesting book club selection too.

Amused By Books: Book Review: Sarah's Key
Today is my first Book Club Friday! I am hoping to get in the swing of reading again and I am sure I will find some great suggestions over at Blonde...Undercover Blonde's link up. The last book that I read was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. I picked it up on the way to get a pedicure to have something to read and the main reason I settled on it was that it is a historical novel. The main story is fictional but the events that occurred are factual. I loved the book and I was unable to put it down once I started. It is the first book that I have read since becoming a mother and I saw what a different light I view things from. If you read it, you will see why. I also see that I must have been under a rock somehow missed the fact that it has been made into a movie. Here is an overview from Barnes & Noble: Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door to door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty Years Later: Sarah’s story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own future. In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered. And here are some reviews: “This is a remarkable historical novel, a book which brings to light a disturbing and deliberately hidden aspect of French behavior towards Jews during World War II. Like Sophie's Choice, it's a book that impresses itself upon one's heart and soul forever.” –Naomi Ragen, author of The Saturday Wife and The Covenant “Sarah's Key unlocks the star crossed, heart thumping story of an American journalist in Paris and the 60-year-old secret that could destroy her marriage. This book will stay on your mind long after it's back on the shelf.” –Risa Miller, author of Welcome to Heavenly Heights I hope that if you pick it up you love it also! If you are looking for something new to read, or have a book review yourself, hop on over to Book Club Friday and link up!

Room by Emma Donoghue Read - 9/15/12 ~seg
Book Club, Awesome Book, 5 Year Olds, Amazing Book, Old Boys, 5 Years, Boys Who, Little Boys
Room, Emma Donoghue. Brilliantly written, I couldn't put it down, an imprisoned world seen from a 5 year olds eyes. I thought it would be sad but you just fall in love with the characters.
This is a spell-binding book about a 5 year old boy who has lived his life inside one room with his mother, at the hands of her kidnapper and rapist. Everything is seen through Jack's eyes. It's the kind of book that you can't stand to put down.
Amazing story about a little boy and his mother. The entire book is told by a 5year old boy who has been held captive in a small room his entire life.
Another book club pick from 2011, I read this in one afternoon. Great book for discussion - written from the view of a 5 year old who is being held with his young mother (who was kidnapped - reminiscent of Jaycee Dugard) - except this child has never been out of the room in which they are being held by their captor. Brilliant idea to write from his innocent perspective.
Enter ROOM - a endearing look into the perceived reality of a 5 year old boy who has never seen the world beyond the room with which he shares with his captive mother.
I read this book on the plane ride back from Florida...loved that it was written from the view point of a 5 year old boy.
Our latest book club read...a bit slow the first 50 pages or so, but then becomes a real page-turner. It is written from the perspective of a 5 year old so it takes so getting used to, but brilliant writer!
written from the perspective of a 5-year-old. really amazing book
Awesome book told through the eyes of a 5 year old!
The Grapes of Wrath...,towards the end, after finally reaching California and being mistreated down near Bakersfield, they move north into Tulare County to Linnell Camp (near Visalia) where a county agent checks in on them to be sure they are being treated well...,my Dad was one of those agents back during those hard times.
John Steinbeck is a timeless author, yet this tale is unbelievable. Esp. the final scene, but don't cheat and look ahead!

"The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck : http://freakinsweetbookcovers.tumblr.com/post/49317854757/the-grapes-of-wrath-john-steinbeck | #BookCover
The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck, 1939. Elmer Hader, who made a living illustrating and (in some cases) writing children’s books with his wife, Berta. Steinbeck fell in love with their 1939 tale Billy Butter, and asked that Hader design the cover for his next novel. Hader also eventually created the cover art for East of Eden (1952) and The Winter of Our Discontent (1961).
The Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck | "It ain't that big. The whole United States ain't that big. It ain't that big. It ain't big enough. There ain't room enough for you an' me, for your kind an' my kind, for rich and poor together all in one country, for thieves and honest men. For hunger and fat."
Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck. My favorite Author. I love his writing. This book is my favorite. Reminds me of my mother.
The Grapes Of Wrath - John Steinbeck. This is a perfect novel, and so sad I will never read it again. It captures the injustice of poverty during the Great Depression continuing today. And is rooted in an injustice as the notes upon which it is largely based collected by one Sanora Babb were lent to Steinbeck by her supervisor, causing the publishers to shelve her book on the same subject. Read this book, but know.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom (HIgh School)-- The author, an alumnus of Brandeis University, tells of his meetings with a former professor suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease and of the lessons he learned about life and death from his college mentor.*
It's been ten years since Mitch Albom first shared the wisdom of Morrie Schwartz with the world. Now-twelve million copies later-in a new afterword, Mitch Albom reflects again on the meaning of Morrie's life lessons and the gentle, irrevocable impact of their Tuesday sessions all those years ago. . . - goodreads
Mitch Albom writes beautifully about his college professor who he re-catches up with 20 years later. Maurie is living with Motor Neurone Disease (ALS) and shares many life lessons with Mitch on his Tuesday visits... a book to touch your heart & mind!

"And now you come to me - women with hand and feet as soft as a queen's, with more cooking pots than you need, so safe in childbed and so free with your tongues. You come hungry for the story that was lost. You crave words to fill the great silence that swallowed me, and my mothers, and my grandmothers before them."
this wwas recommended by two separate people with opposite tastes - and now another friend - it will be my book club pick
The author takes a character that is just a mention in the Bible, and tells her story in a touching and dramatic way. Great Book Club book.
One of my favorite books. If you enjoy reading then give this book a try. I wish it would be made into a movie.
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant The Christian Science Monitor wrote that the novel "vividly conjures up the ancient world of caravans, shepherds, farmers, midwives, slaves, and artisans...Diamant is a compelling narrator of a tale that has timeless resonance." ...an excellent read.
If I could recommend one book to every woman I know, this would be it. It's such a detailed and interesting novel. I love the story.
