WHERE THE PLACE WAS THE CHARACTER


Book Club Girl is having another contest.
She is asking if you visit her blog to post a comment on
What book, made the place the character. The winners will get a mouse pad and copy of a new book called Nothing is Quite Forgotten in Brooklyn by Alice Mattison.
For me, there are a few books that do that for me. I will name a few.
One Thousand Splendid Suns, really gave you the feel of the culture and the people.
How women were treated by their husbands, and all men in Afghanistan.
The other was To Kill A Mockingbird, the character was Alabama. The sense of the towns culture in the 30's, 40's, 50's, and even early 60's.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorites. I haven't read One Thousand Splendid Suns, but The Kite Runner is in my TBR pile.

I agree with you about Thousand Splendid Suns. For me, it was a much richer novel than Kite Runner. I am in the minority and am not a fan of that book for many reasons.

Thanks for stoppng by my blog. Your blog is great!! I like that you post about your book club.
I am in a book club as well and we've had some challenges along the way. I wish that I lived in your area and could join up with yours! I'm actually looking for a new book club. I'll add your blog to my blog list and my google reader!
