RWR Reader's Choice Selection(s!), July-September 2005
Thanks for all of your nominations; I know I’m personally interested in taking a look at The Namesake, Mrs. Caliban, and Lamb, even though they didn’t “win.” And thanks for voting – more than 80% of our mailing list was represented.
The Second Coming and Honeymoon With My Brother finished very close to each other, and both appear to be very different books – one a breezier, enjoyable summer read (Honeymoon); the other just as enjoyable, but perhaps deeper and more reflective. So, here’s the deal: give our official Reader’s Choice, The Second Coming, a try … and if you either find you don’t like it at all or enjoy it and finish it fairly quickly, go for Honeymoon With My Brother as a double dip. We’ll discuss both right here. Honeymoon does not appear to be available in paperback yet, but perhaps your local library has scored a copy -- or Amazon currently has the hardback for a pretty good discount.
1. You can post your comments, observations, ruminations, philosophications, or questions whenever you’re ready. Links to good online sources of related discussion material are highly encouraged.
2. If your post or post comment includes plot spoilers, please please oh please indicate it by typing (Spoilers) in the subject line or at the beginning of your comment.
We’ll nominate our selection for October-December 05 sometime in late September, soon after Dances With Dirt.
Ready, set – read!
