    Books you'd like to discuss with others.

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by Maroon, Jun 21, 2009.

    Hi all.

    Often I'll read a book and want to be able to discuss it with others, particularly if the ending is ambiguous or if I have mixed feelings about an event or character. Or, just because I loved it and want to see if other people loved the same bits as me!

    So I thought it might be fun to have a thread where people could list the books they're keen to discuss, and others who've read them can hop on in.*

    I recently read The Seven Days of Peter Crumb by Jonny Glynn, which was an utterly disturbing horror story; a kind of British 'American Psycho'. Has anyone read this?

    Big love,

    Maroon.

    *Obviously we wouldn't discuss the books in this thread. No spoilers!

    The Catcher in the Rye is arguably my favorite books. Sadly, most people who have already read it either: 1. extremely hate it, or, worse, 2. also don't get the point besides hating it (i.e. they hate it without a good reason).

    I've had only one good discussion about it with a friend of mine (who was a bit unnerved by it, funnily enough), but that's about it.

    Yeah, that'd be fun! I'd be game for that.

    Sorry though - I haven't read Catcher or American Psycho. I've seen the American Psycho film, but not sure that counts. :p

    We used to have a book club here at WF, but it fizzled out after a while. Maybe you'll get more interest now that it's summer.

    Shall we try? One book every fortnight/month? I'd be keen, especially now that I'm on holiday for a month....

    Go for it. If you can keep interest alive, it has potential. Start by finding the original threads in this forum. I think it fizzled in December or January.
