The Memory Keeper's Daughter BC Discussion #3

Interesting perspective on David's love. I can totally see that, but as I was reading the book my initial reaction is that he did love her. I can see this being a fair argument either way.

off topic for a sec but LC Rachel- your hair looks awesome!

** back to the book.. I think that while the author did develop the characters well they were never actually fully developed which leaves a lot of room for the reader to create an inner life about who they are reading. Does that make sense? I knew that the book was coming to an end but I felt unsatisfied with the ending. I tried asking myself what ending I really would have enjoyed and I couldn't figure it out. Did anyone else feel this way?

Oh def. I think the reason I felt so unsatisfied is that David died and absolutely no progress was made towards developing the relationship between the characters. Basically- nothing changed. They went on hating David but this time with valid reasons.

 

I somewhat am frustrated with the author for ending the book this way, but yet, I also realize that it is closer to reality. This happens all the time in life- problems go unresolved and closure is never found.

 

Oh and thanks for the hair compliment. hehe :)

I definitely felt this way too. There were too many issues left hanging. I didn't feel satisfied after finishing the book.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
