I'm trying to blow through some of the books I got last fall and picked up what I thought would be a quickie, Ashton Lee's Cherry Cola Book Club. I just finished a rather dense book on the LA art scene in the 60's and wanted something fun and fluffy. This one is a first novel and, boy, does it show. Clunky and just not very well-written. I keep reading and then wondering why I don't just put it down and read something else. Basically, it's about a small town librarian whose library is threatened with closure(by some local politicians who are only missing Snidely Whiplash mustaches to twirl), so she decides to start a book club to save the library.....because that's how you save a library. There are PAGES on how to form a book club, which the librarian seems completely ignorant of.
I may not finish it. I'm still debating. Life's too short to read crappy books.
