No that's not a typo, that was our analysis of The Double Bind last night. A very lively discussion where no topic reached consensus other than the author is clever indeed.
I don't want to post spoilers here, for it truly must be read completely to be discussed properly. But I will say after some late night reflection that I fear the issues the author highlighted were overshadowed by the many questions regarding plot device. I'll leave it at that. As the leader, I didn't do a good job of bringing the topics of homelessness and mental illness into the discussion. And I wish now we had delved a little further down the bumpy road instead of taking the easy one. Sorry girls.
Book club is always a good reminder that everyone views books differently and even if a story isn't liked, it can still make you think. It is so nice to engage in adult conversation, if only for a few hours.
And if you wouldn't mind, please indulge me in the great Message Board experiment of 2008 and sign up. Otherwise, I'll be forced to discuss books with myself and no one wants to see that. Um, Table for one.
