The Memory Keeper’s Daughter: Kim Edwards

This 401-page novel was written in 2005 and was on the New York Times Bestseller list for the summer of 2006. A television adaption of the film was also made. I’ve seen the book several times but just recently picked it up and am hoping to get some feedback. Since the book is naturally split into sections I’m going to read each section and then post on it. There are 7 sections so I’ll post 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday and will have read a section by each date. For anyone who wants to follow exactly the sections are as follows:

Section 1. 1964: pg 1-69, posting Monday August 16, 2010

Section 2. 1965: pg 73-122, posting Wednesday August 18, 2010

Section 3. 1970: pg 125-169, posting Friday August 20, 2010

Section 4. 1977: pg 173-237, posting Monday August 23, 2010

Section 5. 1982: pg 241-306, posting Wednesday August 25, 2010

Section 6. 1988: pg 309-358, posting Friday August 27, 2010

Section 7. 1989: pg 361-401, posting Monday August 30, 2010

I’ve heard that this is an excellent book and I’m hoping to get some good discussions going or at least have some interesting thoughts put out there.

Happy Reading!
