Mr. Corso, DITHOT and I are excited to announce our next book selection…. :giddy:

The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte

The Club Dumas is the inspiration for The Ninth Gate.

Our discussion will begin sometime in July, the exact date TBA.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Yay, I am excited about the book selection. Excitement and intrigue. Something in which to sink the choppers... :bounce:

My book is on its way. I think this one should make for a great discussion. It is actually one on the list that I haven't read so I get to read another book. :cool:

Me too, gemini! Any excuse for a new book. :lol:

Nice!! I have this one, & read it a few months ago. It will be a pleasure to re-visit!

:bounce: WooHoo! Count me in! The Ninth Gate is one of JD's most difficult movies for me, so any enlightenment I can get from reading the source material will be a boon!
Excellent choice! :cool:

HA!
I had to join the local library to keep up with my fellow ZONERS!
I've emailed my request to reserve the new book. (you can do that @ the library now...who knew?)
I am also in the midst of reading Public Enemies and the John Dillinger story.
I'd better take a beach vacation soon to catch up on all this reading material!
It's fun to read with a purpose though.

AND I finally reached 100 posts. Not huge but a small milestone for me!

I’ve been in book clubs for so many years now (I think 13) that I can’t read a book just for the pleasure of reading a book. I have this compulsion to discuss it with someone else. Congrats on 101 (at the moment). :cool:

Parlez, we will definitely have to get into that. I don’t think you are alone.

As much as I don't like giving "the dark side" anymore thought than necessary - I must say that The Ninth Gate is one of Johnny's most intriguing movies for me so am eager to have ONBC help sort things out! So many questions so few answers!

That being said - is there a particular edition of TCD which is better than the other and how do I know for sure that I'm ordering an English translation (will be using amazon.ca)? Any help greatly appreciated.

Woo hoo! I re-read this last month and am looking forward to discussing it.
