Which Book Club character would make you never want to read again?
The Ayatollah - This person wants to dominate everything. They want to choose the books that are read, and often dominate discussion. This person single-handedly has lead to the rise in paid facilitators who help keep group dynamics in check.
The Shakespeare – This person graduated with a degree in Comparative Lit and never got to use it until now. They are quick to tell you the origin of a word or inane back story that no one cares about. They are pretentious but mostly harmless.
The Upper Crustean – This person claims to have read War and Peace but secretly made it to page 43; then went to Wikipedia to fill in the missing pieces. They secretly read lots of chick-lit but will never publicly admit to it.
The Lush – We’re not even sure if this person can read but one thing is clear they are there for the booze. Halfway through the meeting they can be heard belching and seen stumbling around the snack tray.
The Nut Case – This person doesn’t want to talk about books, they want to talk about their personal problems. The have found that going to their therapist is not enough and they need another forum to discuss their latest meltdown.
