Hello. I'm having trouble keeping up with the book club - I read the book, but I procrastinate writing about it. Why? I can't think of what to say, or I worry that what I want to say sounds foolish, which was the point of this club - to say what you want without stress of how you sound. I've also been a little disappointed in the books I've selected. So, I want to take a break from this club - a few months and then see how I feel.
The Little Giant was a fast read and what I would categorize as medium good. Not the best book I've read, but interesting. For some reason I really liked Truly and felt bad for her in the beginning, but towards the end I didn't like her anymore. Maybe I was tired of her suffering and doing nothing about it, or maybe I wanted her to use the quilt to poison everyone in town. The quilt intrigued me - the idea of sewing spells into the design. There was something lacking in this story, I wanted to see her change; not just lose weight, but gain some understanding. She thought her sister was dead for years, but when she finds out she is still alive, she sends a letter. That seemed odd to me. I know we get busy, but this would seem like an exception. What did you think of the book? If you didn't read this one, are there any others you would recommend?
