Last Saturday we had our first book club meeting. I hosted and the book that we read beforehand was Wicked by Gregory Maguire. We met on Saturday and enjoyed some delicious food. Tracy helped me make a Cheesy Chilli Dip, Peanut Butter Mousse Cups, and Peanut Butter Cookie Bars. We ate and we had a great conversation about the book. We talked about what we thought about the book in general, about specific parts of the book, and about the characters. We discussed what we liked about the book, what we didn't like, what made sense, and what didn't make sense. Afterwards, we also had a great time talking about other things, catching up with each other, and making future plans.
As for the book have any of you read it? What were your thoughts? I have to admit that it was definitely not what I expected it to be. I found the book to be very confusing. Not that it was a difficult read or anything. It's just that so many things happened that we never fully find out about. Like what's up with the resistance? What happened while she was at the convent? I think there were interesting things happening in the book but a lot of them were never completed. I also found how some of the characters behaved to be very strange and some them acted in very illogical ways.
Are you in a book club? Have you ever thought about starting one?
