I am not sure how it happened, but I haven’t shared our last few book club reads. So I am very happy to be back and to let you know about our latest book. For November we read All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I chose the book and was excited to read it. It is a beautifully written story that is very descriptive, but it did not hold my attention. I really enjoyed the beginning and then the middle just kept gong and going…slowly. I finally had to skip forward and read the last six chapters. I caught up with the characters and did not feel like I missed anything by skipping the middle of the book.

I was not alone in my thoughts about the book. In our group, one person loved the book and two others agreed with me. Several others were still trying to get through the book. I am sorry to say that on a whole it was not a favorite.
