Book was Bad
I always enjoy Tuesday Night Book Club, even if the book is bad. But this one was really bad. Such a waste of time. Poorly developed characters and dialogue. Ugh! "The Heroines" by Eileen Favorite is a fictional tale of a bed-and-breakfast where classic heroines appear from literary works. I like Scarlett O'Hara and Madame Bovary and Catherine/Heathcliff -- but in their true form, not an adaptation. It makes me long for our "Jane Austen" days. The regular members brought lovely snacks for tea time, however, and we shall look forward to "Alice in Wonderland" for next month.
