If not taken seriously, this is a good book. Funny with many twists and turns that are very much unexpected. Interesting way to tell a story and for me it works.

I just had a discussion about community, it reminded me about Elgies and Bernadette's position. Elgie's comment about paying the fees and that is enough, he is behind Bernadette about not being in the community. Calling the women who do more in the school "gnats" was another reason I didn't care for her (them).

What do you think they would feel about the Optimist club or would they be members? If they were, would they be active or just pay their dues?

Shawn Richey | 2 comments Interesting question! I do not feel that they would even acknowledge the existence of an Optimist Club. Unless Elgie had to belong as part of the Microsoft culture. So my vote - they wouldn't be members.
