Bookends Book Club discussion of She by H. Rider Haggard
After our summer break, McIntyre's third-Thursday monthly book club, Bookends, resumes. Our first two selections for the fall of 2014 are H. Rider Haggard's She (1887) and William Henry Hudson's Green Mansions (1904). Both were best-selling and highly entertaining adventure stories (set respectively in 19th-century Africa and South America) featuring large Victorian themes such as imperialism, the rise of modern science, and the mysteries of human identity. Both are also grandiose romances that include some of the most memorable characters you've encountered in a good while. She and Green Mansions are available at McIntyre's at a 20% discount. Our moderator is our Fearrington neighbor, Wayne J. Pond.
