Book club meeting.
I went to the book club meeting at the library tonight. It was my first time because, as much as I like discussing books, sitting around and talking with strangers isn't really my kind of thing. Everyone was nice though and the discussion was interesting AND I actually participated! The kids said they were very proud of me.
The reason I went is because the book was set not so far away from here and and was inspired by a very local event and I figured it would be stupid of me to miss out on hearing what people from the area thought about that. The general consensus on that aspect? They didn't see the point of fictionalizing an already sensational story. The general consensus on the book? Too freakin' long.
I agree completely with both opinions. Review to follow eventually.
