What a productive night for the members of our book club! Ayyyy still no name though hahaha! It's the first book discussion meeting. Sy suggested the novel Gone Girl during our first ever meeting and after a little more than a month, we met again to share our thoughts and feelings toward it.
Apart from merely reading books and discussing them we also agreed that whenever we meet, we should choose a place that somehow will remind us of the book we read, or some place that can relate to the book. We are not limited to a place though, we could get creative as maybe relate it to eating a food that was a significant factor of the book, or to relate to the same experience or moments.
For our first book, we tried to find a place similar to 'The Bar' in the book; but we don't think we can really discuss if we are inside a bar the reason why we ended up in Fez in Serendra. Not really a bar but at least we were seated near the bar of the restaurant. Not bad not bad. I like the place for its ceiling and the varied lamps. The place has a warm vibe which greatly aided us in our discussion.
Of course we needed to eat and these are what we ordered. Not much food compared to the tons of talk we had.
We have unanimous thoughts on this book. We all like how psycho Amy was, hence how psycho-bitch the author was as well hahaha; and how stupid Nick was; and our feelings toward the different characters! Just like Amy, we got somehow obsessed with the details while we were talking about the book. I'll be posting a book comment on Gone Girl and maybe inject in it more of the discussion we had. Hopefully I could find time to refresh my mind and write about it soon.
This book is also in the process of being a movie. Yes, of course, we also talked about it and how we find the cast appropriate for the roles.
We also ended up talking about a LOT OF THINGS (as usual even before we formed this book club). I had fun that night because apart from the usual loko-lokohan lang and trip-trip non-sense blabbing, we actually made sense that night! Hahaha! For a night I felt like I was/we were talking profoundly nakssss! I didn't really expect myself to be involved in a book club but hey it's not that bad!
Cheers to more book club sessions; to more eating; to more moments, experiences and adventures. Let's keep this going.
P.s. Parang ang lame ng post na to maybe my mind's brain cells taking care of the cohesive writing aren't functioning normal. Kulang na kulang na kasi sa tulog... Anyway I'll just reread this again some other time.
