Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this because I was serving as the monthly facilitator of my neighborhood book discussion group. The most useful part of the book was a synopsis of the various pieces of literature that A.J. Fikry cites at the beginning of each chapter and recommends to his adopted daughter.Kathryn Cope explains how they relate to the story line. The biographical information about the author is scanty and I did not find the discussion questions particularly provocative. The novel I purchased had discussion questions which I found more interesting. I googled the novel and the author and found a very good interview on NPR with Terry Gross which I found to be a lot more informative and thought provoking. Bottom line - only worth buying for synoses of literature cited.
