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).
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)
