Bel Canto Book Discussion

Book discussions are fun!

I enjoyed leading this one; although, I feel I made some mistakes. For example, I may have moved the discussion too fast and not given people the chance to chime in. I was afraid of losing my train of thought, so I bounced on comments with more questions.

One participant remarked that it looked like I was dancing during the talk. I was probably rocking with extra excitement. I also talked too much! Can you imagine!?! Maybe I should limit the coffee intake on RRT days.

Man, I love this book! It took this second reading to realize Ann Patchett's style is very much like her favorite authors: Nabokov, Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, Chekov, Raymond Chandler and Joan Didion.

I look forward to her next book!
