Thanks for posting this; it made me remember what I loved about PERFUME. I first started reading PERFUME after I heard an installment read on NPR several years ago. Picked it up and couldn't put it down. Grenouille is one of the most fascinating antiheroes I've ever come across; vies with Ripley of Patricia Highsmith's TALENTED MR. RIPLEY et al. Very dark but so masterfully written that the scents practically waft off the page. Not for the faint of heart, that's for sure.


That book sounds intriguing.

Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

Sounds like a great book.

Julie E.

Thanks--it was great hearing about Perfume, and I also appreciated the list of other books at the end.

Dawn - She Is Too Fond Of Books

A very dark, but very well-written book ... creative and unique, to say the least!

The movie is true to the book (and more than a bit disturbing!)

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. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
