Shadow of the Wind in the Windy City
It's an airplane book, a long trip book, a sick day book, a beach book. Maybe a good book for someone who liked "Harry Potter" and is looking for something new to read. Lots of characters, plot twists and coincidences. I did not hate it but I'm not sure I would read anything else by the author. I was worried it would not be good for discussion but I was wrong - we had plenty to talk about especially the idea of a Quest. What stories involve a quest? "Lord of the Rings", "Wizard of Oz", "Star Wars".....etc. Do you lose interest in a book if it's a quest and you don't care about the quest? Good question. Long weekend coming up - looking forward to some reading!
