I didn't really want to get into discussion of the book itself but rather how you feel about the book. I remember just struggling so hard with the Saroyan biography and enjoying the Kerouac biography more than I liked OTR. The Birkin book fits in there somewhere in between, and honestly I haven't fi...

finishing the Birkin book

I have just a few pages left to read in the book about J M Barrie. Fascinating man, our discussions should be very interesting! I hope everyone else is enjoying it as well. I was just curious to see what anyone else's reaction has been to the book. Next up, to read Peter Pan in its entirety before t...

I have read El Club Dumas and loved it! It is much more complicated than the 9th Gate, with two main plot lines going on simultaneously. It can be confusing if you have also seen the movie because some of the characters exchange names in the book compared to the movie. The movie made more sense to m...

Oh, the questions are getting easier, are they???????? :banghead: I guess Chenault from The Rum Diary would be my choice so far. She was so sure of herself and so in love with life and so willing to experience every delicious forbidden moment of it. Love her freedom and her ability to rebound..........

Great information here. I remember Cathy Rigby's name from the Olympics, but mostly she became a joke around my house because of her advertisements for feminine products. I vaguely remembered something about Peter Pan, but this was a real education for me. Thanks!

Does "all of the above" count as an answer for #1? There is so much to love here! I think my favorite reason is that this site is so user friendly.

Wow. I was under the impression that Finding Neverland was a based on Birkin's book. If this article is right, it's based on a play by another author I never heard of. :eyebrow: According to the Birkin book, Barrie was a friend of the family for many years before he wrote Peter Pan; he was well acq...
