New Book Arrivals and The Wife; Meg Wolitzer



I was very excited to receive all of these new books by mail over the last few weeks.  Have you read or do you plan to read any of these?


I just downloaded the audio version of The Wife; Meg Wolitzer, from the library and am loving it. The audio is so well done and I'm really enjoying the story.  Hope to see the film afterward. Have you read this one or watched the film?

  3. The only one on your list that I planned on reading is the Daughter of Molokai. I really loved Molokai so hope I am not building up this sequel too much.

  4. I loved Moloka'i (pre-blogging days), so I'm interested in the follow-up. I haven't read any of his other novels, have you? I've got a copy of The Red Address Book on my shelf and plan to read it as soon as I finish The Brutal Telling. It looks good! Adding The Wife to my Audible list. Thanks!

  8. Ken and I watched the first 45 minutes or so of The Wife, renting it via Prime--on the expensive side. I totally forgot to watch the rest of it the next day and so we "lost" the rental. Darn!! Definitely worth seeing.

  14. It's so good to get so many goodies in the mail! I have seen The Storyteller's Secret on Amazon. I saw The Wife last weekend. Glenn Close was fantastic in it. I recommend you watch it after you finish the book.

  15. I saw The Wife last weekend. A tour de force performance by Glenn Close. I recommend you watch it, though not that soon after reading the book because the movie may pale in comparison to the movie played in your mind. Good luck with the book.

  16. I like the looks of This Much Country. I think I might try to get it at the library. I have seen The Wife movie and it is good. See it after you finish it.
