Day 2 was full of great discussion and I was sad to see Suzanne be voted off. Although it was difficult to like the actions and decisions of Suzanne, it was a book that did move me to consider the lack of choice for women at a time when the expectation was to be a wife and mother. The book was a beautifully written collection of vignettes spanning the lifetime of experiences of Suzanne. Not only did I like the story, but the book nerd in me appreciated the quality, linen like, thick pages printed by Coach Books (much like Fifteen Dogs).
The next two days will be exciting. The remaining books seem quite evenly matched although the defenders of By Chance Alone and Brother seem to have stronger debating skills and a greater comfort level in the high tension atmosphere of a live audience situation.
Bring on Day 3 and I am looking forward to being part of the audience on Day 4 when the winner will be chosen!
