The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD
Pickpick

The writing is poetically beautiful. I haven‘t enjoyed a dystopian novel so much since 1984 or Fahrenheit 451. I‘m looking forward to reading the sequel. I have yet to see the tv series. The question is, should I?

Apples Never Fall | Liane Moriarty
Pickpick

Overall this story kept me on edge. I enjoyed the character development and pacing. The ending was not tidy but I actually prefer that when appropriate and it was appropriate here. Enjoyable, quick read or should I say listen. Loved the narrator‘s Australian accent which added to the pleasure of listening.

This book kept me in suspense and I thoroughly enjoyed the Shakespearean and Star Trek references. Parts of this book sent chills up my spine. The ending almost reminded me of The Giver. It was a book club read and I finished it much quicker than I had anticipated.

terryduncan5719 It definitely had more of an impact because of COVID! As you said, the Shakespeare references were enjoyable and the character development was interesting. How would we have fared in THAT world? 4mo
Sherlockmarie I wonder. I think we would have been part of the troupe. We are both hopeful people and I‘d like to think we would continue to be so 3mo

The Dead Zone | Stephen King

A bit slow in the middle but great character development. Not scary at all but reads more like a thriller near the end. Now I‘d like to watch the show.

Me Talk Pretty One Day | David Sedaris

Listening to this and lots of laugh out loud moments. Sedaris never fails to entertain.

Not finished yet but enjoying the writing style immensely. I also love how Mr Straub is intertwining all of these characters‘ stories.
