    Mickorod Renard: no worries..nice that you have come

    Bleu Oleander: I liked your Camus suggestion :)
    Mickorod Renard: thankyou..I want to do the odyssey but its looking like a challenge
    Mickorod Renard: that may be too demanding at this stage
    Bleu Oleander: np ... nice to hear what everyone likes
    Bleu Oleander: actually I think the Odyssey is easier than the stranger ... but that's probably because I've studied it more
    Mickorod Renard: we need to get a bit more more feedback from folks like riddle bruce eliza etc
    Mickorod Renard: ah..in what way?
    Mickorod Renard: it must be smaller in read?
    Bleu Oleander: a lot of issues to pick out in Camus' work
    Mickorod Renard: but perhaps more questions?
    Mickorod Renard: ah yes, I detected that from the reviews

    Bleu Oleander: have you read Gilgamesh? that's another good one
    Mickorod Renard: no I havnt
    Bleu Oleander: beautiful story
    Mickorod Renard: well, lets put it in the pot and ask others
    Bleu Oleander: love friendship power eternal life ... its all in there
    Mickorod Renard: I like the beautiful bit
    Mickorod Renard: maybe we need to focus more on the positive and the love
    Bleu Oleander: one of the oldest and most universal stories
    Mickorod Renard: I must look it up..is it western or eastern?

    Mickorod Renard: one would never think a book reading group could find choosing a book so complicated


    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Bleu Oleander: many of the old testament stories come from it
    Bleu Oleander: well everyone relates to books differently
    Bleu Oleander: and looks for books that support ideas that they like
    Bleu Oleander: so hard to come together
    Mickorod Renard: this is true
    Bleu Oleander: its why I don't belong to a book club
    Mickorod Renard: I like the idea of discovery
    Mickorod Renard: so prefer things I would not normally choose
    Mickorod Renard: if that makes sense
    Mickorod Renard: when I was younger i would take of on a journey and then bump into strangers and follow them a while
    Mickorod Renard: eventually I became more of a person with idea's of where I wanted to go
