M | 10 comments Sorry I've been MIA, I completely forgot it's my job to lead the group discussion right? I've been a little busy, but I finally sat down and got through a bit of the book and here are some thoughts:

i'm halfway through the book

a few things
1. it is so difficult to memorize all the names of characters and places because I'm not French/german..this was why i stop reading 'girl with the dragon tattoo' ..

2. the summary of the book on goodreads is half of the book....

3. slow start..like literally...slooooooooow but it picked up..u just need to get over that slow hump

5. although it is 500+ pages, the chapters are super short! so it's quick

Alice | 8 comments I'm about 100 pages into the book. For The Power, I waited until I was finished to comment but I'm gonna try intermediate comments this time. First book club, not sure what to do, lol. Thoughts:

@ Kathy
I also really appreciate the short chapters. Makes things abbreviated, but in a way where I want to keep reading and know more. Also makes it easy to pause whenever I want!

Daphne | 9 comments This book took me 2 weeks to read, partly because I've been busy, but also because it's not appealing enough for me to sit down and read it all in one go, haha :P

What are you main takeaways from this book? Somehow I can't really think of much right now. Loyalty and curiousity seems like quite big themes though.

@alice

two my main takeaways from this book was lost and hope

how alice lost her innocent but became something better
how she lost her sight but use it to her advantage and became BETTER
how werner lost his free will...etc
