December Meme: Question #36

Hi clubbers!! We’re excited to be posting our latest meme question for the club! (A bit early, since many may be celebrating the holidays when we usually post the monthly meme, so we thought we’d offer an early start this month.) Feel free to answer now or next month at your place, & leave a link to your response in the comments below so others can see what you have to say. Or really, you could just answer in the comments if you want. We really are quite flexible here. 🙂 Here’s the question this month:

A meme rewind from September 2012: Pick a classic someone else in the club has read from our big review list. Link to their review and offer a quote from their post describing their reaction to the book. What about their post makes you excited to read that classic in particular?

“Reading” – Auguste Renoir (1890-1895)

One thought on “December Meme: Question #36

    “I would recommend reading The Odyssey first, or at least try looking into the incidents that Joyce names his episodes after.”
    Charlotte’s review/post re James Joyce’s Ulysses taken en toto reinforced my decision to include this on my list of classic books to read. I belong to several live and in person book clubs, including both classic and current fiction. I prefer the classic fiction formats generally, but have recently gained a greater appreciation for the more modern fictional forms. I believe this work would fall into the latter category in its time and that now my mind has been broadened to consider the value of a wider range of more “modern” forms of fiction. What really got me about this review is the above quote that is near the end of the post. How lucky I am, therefore, that the Odyssey is also on my list of classic books to read!
