    OK so I broke the book down for everyone so we can have places to try and be in terms of discussion.

    So by Jan 10 we will be talking about Chapters 1-6 which in my version is up to page 55
    Jan 17th chapters 6-11 page 113
    Jan 24th chapters 11-14- page 154
    And Jan 31 we are done with the book

    We can obs read faster or slower but this helps with conversations and people not spoiling anything ..

    Sounds like a plan πŸ™‚

    I finished already and really liked it. Read it every night before going to sleep (which is usually my time when I watch repeats of the office). It was a nice palate cleanser after reading a biography about da Vinci during the day.

    Guess I’ll kick it off: This was a very pleasant surprise. In the beginning, I wasn’t sold but it got really good as it went on. I can totally see this novel being one that people either like or don’t with no in between, kinda like how people seem to view “The Catcher in The Rye”. Characterization was solid but felt a bit too much like an episode of SVU if that makes sense in terms of “Oh this is probably going to happen next.” My grade: B+

    Os i finished the book the other day , I liked it but didn’t love it … I was not a fan of the Non lineal way in which the story was told . i would have preferred a more straight forwards story . I really enjoyed the Part involving the game he made and built and i would love to have more of that . I think that the other portions were good i just ended up wanting it to be more in depth. Overall i would give it a solid 6 out of ten

    Next up is AMERICAN PSYCHO for February πŸ™‚

    I’ll kick this off:

    What did everyone think of “American Psycho”? I personally love this book but at the same time reading it this time around made me do two things:
    1)Question what he should have been diagnosed with as a child
    2)Pay more attention to the little things about it.
    I know some might find this one to be too violent/over the top/way out there but that’s the beauty of it. Plus, where else could you get that kind of outlet for letting out your anger I guess if your a writer lol. But my favorite thing has to be the social satire of it all. My grade: A

    I hated this book….. it was disgusting and imo a complete waste of time

    I think he is Bi Polar and possibly has DID…. IDK … also is any of it real or is it in his head ?? idk …. I am not a prude and have never been bothered by gore , but for me this felt like it was gore for the sake of it. it didne feel like there was any need to have so much of it … and then to flip so suddenly to these l;ong winded descriptions of clothing and labels … idk

    not a fan
