The last Book Review Club get together before the summer hiatus!  I admit I’ve been neglecting my reading in favor of binge watching Doc Martin on Netflix, but now I’m back to it, and this month’s selection is My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell.


MyFamilyandOtherAnimalsThis little treasure, set in 1935 Corfu, is the basis for the Masterpiece production The Durrells in Corfu, which I happened to stumble over...

Alyssa Goodnight Yes, that ending was *very* interesting... I am very curious to see where this series is going!! I heard about the movie--excited!!

Glad you liked it as much as I did! :)


Christine Blanksvard Okay, finished! The twists and turns, from light and airy, to very dark, I loved this book, but.. the ending, not sure about, it was beautiful and sad at the same time. I wonder where this series will go? I also read they are making a movie from it. I always hold my breath when they make a movie out a book I enjoyed ( The Shining, was a really good, as was Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. My Sister's Keeper and the Southern Vampire Mysteries, they ruined in my opinion. I am really hoping they do "Austenland" justice.)
