Book club :)
I love my book club! We had a meet-up today at a YUMMY restaurant called Harlem. We were discussing The Known World by Edward P. Jones-a Pulitzer Prize winner. For those of you that are unaware (as I and a majority of the group were), the Pulitzer Prize is actually the Pulitzer Prizes. They honor excellence in journalism and the arts AND musical composition according to wikipedia, in 21 categories. It is my understanding that it is solely American.
So what did we think of the book-not so great. Probably the LOWEST average rating BY FAR!! There were some great themes, but in general people felt that there were too many characters and it was really hard to get into. I agree. I don't have too much more to say about it-it's certainly no Book of Negroes!
Looking forward to our March meetup!
Now off to finish my final book for Canada Reads: The Jade Peony!
What are you reading??
