Sophie's Choice

Sophies Choice
In this extraordinary novel, Stingo, an inexperienced twenty-two year old Southerner, takes us back to the summer of 1947 and a boarding house in a leafy Brooklyn suburb. There, he meets Nathan, a fiery Jewish intellectual; and Sophie, a beautiful and fragile Polish Catholic. Stingo is drawn into the heart of their passionate and destructive relationship as witness, confidant and supplicant. Ultimately, he arrives at the dark core of Sophie's past: her memories of pre-war Poland, the concentration camp and - the essence of her terrible secret - her choice.

Hi Everyone!

First Book

Hello fellow book lovers!

How about a discussion on our first book?

I've got Sophie's Choice by William Styron and The Pirate's Daughter by Margaret Cezair-Thompson sitting around waiting to be read if anyone fancies either of those! But I'm always open to new books :)
