Book Review - The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

The Engagements

 The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

A Diamond is Forever. Is it?

There are 5 different stories going on in this novel, and it was easy to forget who-is-who. In the end, you can see how everyone is tied together. Learned some historical facts about where the De Beer's phrase "A Diamond is Forever" came from. An okay read - at least I wanted to find out what happened; but none of the characters really made me feel for them one way or another. This was a book club read, so not something I'd have chosen on my own.

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.

  1. You are in a bookclub now also. None of the books chosen have been what I would read either. It was my turn to host last night and I gave them The Human Bobby to read, hope they like it.


    1. I have been going to this book club for a few years now. I don't always read all the books, and 90% of the books aren't what I'd have picked, but I guess that's part of the fun! Would love to hear what your book club said about The Human Bobby! Such an underrated book!
