Book Club – Chapter 12

Leave a comment

A belated post from July…….

This book club was special because we had our “original” member who has been in KL, with us again. We had lots of catching up to do and it was great to hear that life in KL was going so well for them.  She has joined other Book Clubs in KL and they have chosen the same book as us – which makes her reading list a little more manageable.

The book I had chosen was “Jasmine Nights” and it had mixed reviews.  Not everyone finished it, and I can why quite a few got “stuck”.  That said, I did stick with it and really enjoyed it, in a summer holiday easy reading way. It’s set in 1942 when a singer has the chance to travel to Alexandria, but before she leaves home, she sings in a burns hospital and a soldier is taken by her singing that once he begins recovery he writes to her.  Their love story runs through the many experiences she has as a singer.  For an easy read, I would recommend it and most of the others have since finished it.

Moutains Echoed

Our next book proved tricky to choose too, however it was agreed that it would be “The Mountains Echoed” by Kaled Housseini.  I am looking forward to this one, as I’ve seen the film of Kite Runner and always heard what a great writer he is.
