Book Review VII

Title: The Reading Group

Author: Elizabeth Noble

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: A group of women confront the challenges life presents to them

What was Good: Each of the women are at different ages, thus the challenges are different. The friendships don't stretch across the board either, so not all of them have an intimate answer for the other.

What wasn't: Because there were six women, it was difficult to get a grip at first on the problems and personalities. The index provided at the front should have been a tear-out for quick reference.

The Take-Away: Very much like watching a movie with lots of action and good dialogue.

Recommendation: Read it, but assign the characters to the roles of the women in your own life. Or recognize yourself in several different characters.
