Today was special, even we were just few but we could analyze the rest of the book or the story (Study in Scarlet) which is written by sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We dealt with the last chapters. It’s a really nice novel even it has a sad ending. However, it’s full of science and intelligence without forgetting that revenge was the most dominant Item in the story.
Hey Book Clubbers!
Just a reminder that we will be meeting this Wednesday (23/04/14) at 1pm in Room 35. We will be discussing the entire novel: “A Study in Scarlet”. Come with your reactions, ideas, quotes, and questions to share.
We will also pick our next book to read, so come to vote!
See you there!
In the last session we descussed the first four chapters of the short story (A study in scarlet) which is written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle the famous writer who write’s short stories
What makes this story unique is that it is the first one where holmes and watson works togather
The session was fun and we had a good time but many people didn’t came and some of the participants didn’t read the chapters.

Attention book club members!
I cannot attend or host book club today due to the strike.
I am very sorry, but it is out of my control.
Next week, we will not have a meeting because it is midterm week and I know you will all be very busy.
So, here is what I propose: You have three weeks to finish the entire book (A Study in Scarlet). We will meet again on 23/04/14 to discuss the whole novel and choose our next book.
What do you think? Comment with your thoughts below!
This week we are continuing to read A Study in Scarlet, chapters 4-8.
See you next Wednesday at 1pm!
In Book Club’s last session we discussed Doyle’s first short story “A Scandal in Bohemia”. All members came with a lot of thoughts, questions and they all had different opinions about the book. We also dealt with the biography of the author and the most important stages of his life. The members also talked about the character of Sherlock Holmes, and questioned his manners and attitudes based on the story. Before heading directly trough the conversation Mrs. Lantz started the session with a mini game that made all the members exited and motivated for the discussion. In this latter, we all noticed the lack of romance in the short story. And the way Holmes talked about his opponent, the “Woman” who actually beat him and won his case.
