Commonwealth is now open for discussion. Here are discussion questions from the publisher's site: Questions for Discussion 1. How is each child— Cal, Caroline, Holly, Jeanette, Franny, and Albie—affected by the divorce and neglect that results? 2. What does it mean to become a family again in the w...

I listened yesterday, so of course I had forgotten (or missed) a bunch of the details. But, I found Gaston kind of perplexing - allowing AU to keep him on a leash but using that as a strategy to convince her to return to Europe. I suppose he's no stranger than many other characters in this book, tho...

I really liked Bel Canto when I read it last year. I finished listening to this one this morning and I didn't like it as much (though I won't say too much now), but reading your posts, I'm wondering if I would have liked it more by reading it and the fact that I didn't love it as much as I hoped was...

I started listening last night and I've gotten farther than I might have expected today. So far I like it, but don't absolutely love it, but there's plenty of time for things to build.

Oh gosh Yes! Much better than the ending of Echo with all those cliffhangers!

I found the Plain speech stuff pretty fascinating. The thee and thou sounds more formal to me now, so it was a switch to learn that it used to be the familiar forms. I knew that General Charles Lee had been court-martialed, but hadn't thought about the fact that the family - particularly in a print ...

I agree about this being a good ending, but I am still anxious to see what will happen next and to hear about how the MacKenzies made it back to the Ridge (and to find out what's in Bree's bag! :bigsmile:). I get teary every time I get to the end too. And, as I mentioned before, I just discussed thi...

Ugh. I cringed at JA and the children and wondered, like Demetria, whether GGM was ahead of his time with putting this in the book. I was still sad that they came back and drowned him (!) and stole the gold that Ursula had kept hidden. It feels like it's all just falling apart. There are fewer peopl...

:Melissa: Welcome saraheli1! So glad you've joined us. You mention that you've read all the books, but have you read any of the shorter works that go along with the main series? We'll be starting a re-kilt (our term for a reread) of the Lord John stories in September and you are welcome to join us. ...

I thought about Jamie's decision not to touch Claire. I suspect it was because if he woke her she'd ask where he was headed and he didn't want to tell her that because she'd try to stop him. Usually, she'd know if he were heading out early to hunt or visit or get supplies in a town or whatever, but ...

Wow! It's great that you've visited and that it was so interesting to see. I had no idea they would be experimenting with growing plants underground there in addition to producing electricity. Thanks for the info.

I loved how proud Germain was when Jenny indicated he was one of the men. :bigsmile: Like you, Sue, I found Claire's cutting herself and letting a drop of blood fall pretty strange and unlike her. Especially since this was not the first time she'd visited the garden since Malva's and the baby's deat...

As we are nearing the end of our Moby re-kilt, I thought some people might read the author's notes at the end of the book and want to comment on something there. I just started a thread in the main Moby section, rather than here in the Chapter Discussions section, about Moby Author Notes , in case y...

As we are reaching the end of our group Moby re-kilt, I thought it might be good to have a thread about the Author's Notes at the end of the book in case anyone read them and wanted to comment on any of the information there. The section includes notes from Diana Gabaldon about: Dams and Tunnels (in...
