I enjoyed reading this review. I really enjoyed Out Stealing Horses. It was a quiet but powerful story and I wish there were more like it.

Jeff Kamin

Another (slightly older) member took offense at the idea of a person being too old or done with life at only 67. I did agree with her. She is quite spry after all. Then we questioned whether life in Norway ages you faster or is rougher in some way. Was Trond even waiting to die or just taking a break to mourn and reflect?

Also, one of the funnier reactions to the book was that it made another female member want to work out.

Thanks for your comments.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books.
