Run by Ann Patchett

New for the book club

I have just started reading this book and would like your thoughts . . . I really enjoyed Bel Canto by Ann Patchett and only recently learned that Run is about two transracial adoptees and their family.

From the author's web site:

Since their
mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving,
possessive and ambitious father. As the former Mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle
wants to see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But
when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an
accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard Doyle cares about
is his ability to keep his children, all his children, safe.

Your thoughts?

  1. I bought this book immediately when it came out but have not been able to get into it. However, I felt the same way about Bel Canto, and when I FINALLY got into it, I loved it… so who knows. The adoption stuff on first glance seems very odd though.
