Our book club recently met during our lunch break to sit down and talk about Gold by Chris Cleave. Heres what you missed!
Everyone appreciated reading the book during the Olympics, since Cleave gave us a realistic glimpse of life as an Olympic athlete and insider knowledge of a sport we didnt know much about. Then, the conversation got heated as we discussed the plots many twists and turns.
Most of us struggled with the dynamic between Kate and Zoe (we wouldve liked to shake Kate to her senses), but we all agreed that Cleave gave us richly detailed characters, however flawed. In fact, we got a little carried away and cast the movie. If youre listening, Chris Cleave, we pick Keira Knightley as Zoe, Emily Blunt as Kate, and Orlando Bloom as Jack. We havent quite figured out Sophie and Tom yet. (Comment below if you have ideas!)
We snapped a few pictures to share how we translated Gold from page to party!
If you finished Gold and have any thoughts, please share them in the comments. Dont forget to check back on Monday to find out our book selection for August! (And if you want to make the shortbread-blueberry cookies, you can find the recipe on Marthas Vineyard Magazine.)
