ONBC's Summer/Fall/Spring Read: The Mountain Shadow

Unread postby Liz » Mon May 02, 2016 5:10 pm

One of our best discussions at ONBC was the Shantaram discussion.

Let’s catch up with Lin to find out what his latest adventures are in The Mountain Shadow.

As the book is 912 pages in hardback, we will give you plenty of time to read it. Tidbits will begin in August, and the discussion sometime after that (depending on the number of tidbits).

You can find it on Amazon in a number of formats.

Hope you will join us.

nebraska, you are such a speedy reader that you'll probably have time to read it again.

I'm still working my way through Shantaram. :blush:
As I said earlier, I don't have the patience for long stories, but I'll get through it, I promise!
Then on to Mountain Shadow. :ONBC:

Thanks for giving us slow pokes more time! ;)

It helps that I am retired ... and I don't care for most of the stuff husband watches on television. ;)

nebraska, did you reread Shantaram before starting on the new book?

If so, was it very beneficial to have the first book fresh in your mind when you read Mountain Shadow?

I did re-read Shantaram first, and it was helpful for me to have it fresh in my mind, although I think the Mountain Shadow also would stand up just fine on it's own. There are some characters that carry over from the first book, and he briefly explains who they are and what the history is, but for me it was helpful to have their actual story in my recent memory.

Hello out there, Noodlemantras....

Life has intervened again. So, Firefly and I will
be postponing The Mountain Shadow tidbits
until September.

Have a safe, sane and FUN summer!

I, for one, am grateful. I'm still working on Shantaram. :blush:

Thanks, ladies.

Mountain Shadow is a big book, and so Shantaram. It probably is a good idea to give everyone plenty of time!

Just bought the book like a week ago. I had in mind there's a discussion on ONBC going on already. Silly me. I hope I've read it by the time discussion starts. I only managed to read 230 pages so far. Chapter 22 is next. I don't like what happened until now and I miss Prabu.

:highfive:

I'm on Chapter 29 and I started back in June! :lol:
While the story is interesting, I've found I have to take a break from it periodically.

I do miss Prabu, too. :sad:
