The census from my book club was three five star reviews, my four star review, while the remaining half dozen said they couldn’t make it past the first fifty pages because it was too sad. Although that might have something to do with the majority of ladies in my book club being seniors who are surrounded by death, but they barely wanted to talk about the book because it was too sensitive of a subject.
The subject of discussion became death and transposing the books theme of reincarnation into the groups’ individual lives. There were several stories exchanged of how widows and daughters could sense their husbands and fathers in spirit, once as a dragonfly, and another through a penny. We moved on to reincarnation of dogs to wonder which of our dogs have impacted us so much that we might find them again in another one of their life cycles.
Well I had no idea before my book club meeting that this book was becoming a movie. I might have teared up a little while watching it for the first time, knowing now what some of the scenes will be leading to. I can guarantee that I will cry during this movie and most probably will try to go with my book club, so my husband is saved from attending a tear-jerker with me.
I started a blog so I can look back and see my life through the eyes of the books I read. A book a day keeps reality away!
