I finished the book in time (at 1:30 this morning), and I'm glad I did because it's a pretty good book. The book was The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig, which I don't think I mentioned earlier... The book club, over lunch hour at work, went well with good discussion, but only four people (out of the 12 or so who signed up) came. Maybe there will be more next time, now that everyone knows we are serious... The next book is Big Fish by Daniel Wallace (and no, I haven't seen the movie either).
