Have you ever wanted to attend a book club but didn’t because as hard of hearing you were afraid you’d miss too much? Here’s your chance to try one…. We will be gathering on March 29th from 2-4 at the Sanderson Center in classroom B/C. The book of the month is The Horse Whisperer by Nicolas Evans. We will have the loop on and Julia will be doing the CART. Feel free to come by even if you haven’t read the book as our discussions on the book can be lively at times.
If you saw the movie and then read the book, what did you think about the ending?
Which ending do you prefer and why?
Did the book engage you?
The story was told by three people; Annie, Grace and Tom. Could the book have been told by one person? Which person do you think could have told the story better?
Who was your favorite character and why?
How do you feel about Annie? And her drive, her career, her choices?
What did you think about Diane (Tom’s sister in law)?
Annie and Grace’s relationship was tense through most of the book, was it a typical mother/daughter relationship to you?
Does Tom’s gift with horses seem too good to be true?
A man wrote this romance, do you think he did a good job in this genre?
There are four themes in the book: worldly success vs the home life, rustic simplicity vs big city angst, the redeeming power of love and the mystic of animals. Which part did you like best?
What one word describes the book for you?
We are taking turns choosing a book each month. If you have a good one to share in April, let us know at the meeting this month. Thanks and hope to see you there!
