Chase Novak’s Breed is the BOOK CLUB pick for September. Here’s a look at the trailer. I’ve read it, and I can tell you it’s pretty horrifically gross for someone who is on the squeamish side (namely me). Since Jen is newly the mother of twins, I warned her off it. However, there are issues to be tackled in the gore. Looking forward to the discussion here on September 4.
The trailer for Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 is as mysterious as the book itself. I about 100 or so pages in and slowly making my way through this tome (925+ pages depending on the edition you choose). True to Murakami’s style, the things that happen are very strange, and sometimes pretty far-fetched, but his lyrical writing has a way of hooking you into wanting to know what will happen next. There is a meditative quality in reading his work that is very odd. Sort of like being lulled into accepting his alternate version of the world.
