The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: I can’t believe it’s been 97 weeks before it’s occurred to me to discuss the unreliable narrator (or has it?). Who is your favorite literary liar, the best all-too-subjective storyteller, the yarn-spinner whose intent is to elevate or obfuscate?

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
1/31: overstuffed narrative
2/7: what makes a good biography or memoir
2/14: 100 Book Nooks! Goals/milestones OR love and romance.
2/21: endings that recontextualize what came before (for better or worse)
