I am two discs shy of finishing The Corrections. I might take the book club advice from Date Night (which had only a couple of funny moments to me) and read "the first thirty pages and the last page" of The Thirteenth Tale. My mom said I wasn't missing much and she liked The Corrections more.
The Corrections is, ultimately, an observation of a family whose members are living out the results of some really bad choices. My audio bookmark is at the point where the sister has broken up a family by sleeping with both the wife and the husband. She seems really messed up. But an excellent chef, apparently.
Oh, and the father is very ill and seems to be hallucinating that he is being taunted by an evil piece of poo.
If that's the kind of writing that gets an author acclaimed, I might as well throw away my unfinished efforts and start over.
Anyway, I will be taking my opinions and some book recommendations to the meeting tonight. Angela recommended a few that looked interesting, including a short read which might be very agreeable after this recent doubling-up.
I'll let you know what all goes down. Including whether or not it will be snowing when we finish, as predicted by the current weather forecast!
