Six Degrees of Separation From Less Than Zero to the Language of Sisters

We missed last month but here we go again and I am surprised that we have been able to again use only books that we have read at the Muse & Views Bookclub.  


Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis – story about the young adults from priviledged families, a lost generation

Rules of Civility by  Amor Towes  - the priviledged , how they live and how they suck in others who aspire to their type of life

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark – a popular teacher in a boarding school who believed that the rules of society were not necessarily to be followed. Again young adults from a priviledged background and rules

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro,  a boarding school with special relationships between boarders and the dark secret behind the School’s facade.

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards – the impact of a secret on a family when a decision is taken to give away a sister

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult -  the impact on a family when a decision is taken to help a child by giving her a sister.

The Language of Sisters  by Amy Yurk – sisters and their relationships 

There we are, another completed.  Next month Stephen King's It is going to be a challenge! Our Bookclub has never read thrillers!

  1. Clever link between Less than Zero and Rules of Civility - loved the Towes and have been meaning to read his most recent book (which I managed to include in my chain this month!).
