Well Sir, here's how it went...
We reviewed The Life of Pi, a book I was absolutely enchanted by. Here were some of the comments from other club members, which ties in nicely to my "Why do I join book clubs!?" theme.
Of course I gave my opinion and then nodded politely while everyone else gave their totally wrong opinions on the book. But here's what I was thinking...
1. "I hated it -- it was too pretentious. I felt like the author had saved up every clever and deep thought he ever had and them dumped them all into this book."
Suburby says: (please read that like "Survey says...", from the Family Feud! Thank you!) WRONG!
2. "I am not religious at all, so I could not see anything at all religious about this book"
My verdict: WRONG AGAIN!
3. "I prefer to read "lighter" books."
Inside my head: Quelle surprise!
There was then some general discussion about how badly zoos suck and bad 80s fashions. Oh, and curling. All of which was riveting.
If anyone has read The Life of Pi, please weigh in with your thoughts on the book.
