At our last meeting before a two-month summer break, we select the books that we will read next year and pick out our 'best read' for the closing book club season. Fireside Readers' Best Book for 2011-2012 is Room by Emma Donoghue.
Fireside Readers were divided about this book – some loved it, some
hated it, some liked the first half but not the second; the others
preferred the reverse. In other words, Room was a great book club
choice. Whether we loved or hated it, Room will remain in our minds and
hearts for a long time to come.
“The world is always changing brightness and hotness and soundness, I never know how it's going to be the next minute.”
Fireside Readers return on September 20th - our first book of the season, A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.
