I have been enjoying so many of our get together s' and have of course been very busy these last few months with the holiday season that posting hasn't been as frequent. I hope to change that and increase the regularity here at our book group blog.
Martin Chezzelwit was a great read. I really enjoyed reading the book and learning about the characters. Lessons that I can put to use in my life certainly are to strive to make the best of a bad situation and 'be jolly'. As spoken by Mark Tapley, "Any man may be in good spirits and good temper when he's well dressed. There an't much credit in that. If I was very ragged and very jolly, then I should begin to feel I had gained a point, Mr Pinch."
Several times since reading this book I have been reminded of that.
The movie was quite good and required several viewings to see the who production.
At our last discussion for Martin Chezzelwit we decided that our next book would be The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. So, if you have forgotten there you go. There should be a free version of this on Amazon or online.
