Lit Chicks Book Club Gives Today Will Be Different Good Review

The Lit Chicks book club met last month at the Post Road Library to discuss Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple.

We had a great time chatting about one of the wackiest characters that we have read about in a while. Eleanor Flood is a mess. She wakes up one morning determined to start her day new. She wants to be a better mother, a better wife; she wants to be a better Eleanor. What follows is the fantastical disaster of her efforts that day.

One participant described the book as “kooky, funny, and a fast read.” Another agreed and said that there were many times that she laughed out loud while reading about Eleanor’s crazy adventures.

Two in our group listened to the eAudiobook and seemed to have a difficult time following the many flashbacks throughout the story. Also, this book has several graphics that do not translate well via audiobook. For this reason, our group recommends reading the print version (also available in large type) or the eBook.

Join us on Wednesday, July 12 at 10:15 a.m. to discuss The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George.
