Join us for lively and thought-provoking discussions of great literature. Tonight's book is "Far from the Madding Crowd" by Thomas Hardy with discussion leader Anne Hawkins. In "Far from the Madding Crowd" Gabriel Oak watches Bathsheba, the impulsive young mistress of Weatherby Farm, enter into an unhappy marriage - as unaware as she that fate will finally bring them together. Anne Hawkins teaches U.S. history at Washburn University, and U.S. and world history to homeschooled youth across northeast Kansas. She received her M.A. in History from the University of Kansas.

I have read the first book in the series and loved it but could never find the 2nd (this one) until my last visit. It was a VERY good book. It teaches the readers when to speak their mind, and maybe when to not, be brave, and everything will turn out okay in the end. Rating out of 10: 11

An amazing read! A graphic novel, V for Vendetta acts more like a novel than any other graphic novel I have read. Set in a dystopian London society ruled by fascists, 'V' creates anarchy to bring down the oppressive government.

All I have to say is this is a must read book. I never could really put it down and when I did I got pulled right back into the book.
