Feather Man discussion participants: Please introduce yourselves!

[ Edited ]
Hello to all from Ande, your moderator.
  
First things first: Thank you for taking the time to read Feather Man, by Rhyll McMaster.
 
Before we embark on what I know will be a lively and thought-provoking discussion I wanted you all to have the opportunity to introduce yourself to other participants of the group.
 
Looking forward to learning about you and talking about Feather Man.
Ande

Hi, I am Vivian from Oklahoma. I have been around the clubs for a few years now. I got the book and have read it all, tho I won't post any thoughts about it at all here in the intro so I can look forward to our discussions. :smileywink:

Hi, I'm Deb from NY and have been looking forward to discussing this book even before I finished it. Thank you for the opportunity Ande, and I am also excited about talking to the author.

Hi, I am Denise from Connecticut.  I have very mixed feelings about this book, so I'm anxious to hear others' opinions.  I'm on the fence about whether I actually liked the book!

Hi from Danielle from France,

I am so glad the book was sent to me all the way to France despite the high postage costs!

I have always been interested in literature written from the "frontiers" of the English speaking world like South Africa, Australia, New Zealand... Therefore, I'll give a try  for a new book from an Australian author!

I've finished the book and intend to share my opinion throughout the discussion which is to follow.

I am indeed a therapist, albeit a novice one. I'll be happy to offer any professional insights I come up with.

Re: Feather Man discussion participants: Please introduce yourselves!

Good to see you, Vickie.  Anybody with a tag line from Epictetus is a force to be reckoned with! I haven't read anything of his for several decades; you've reminded me to go back and revisit him (and Senec).

Re: Feather Man discussion participants: Please introduce yourselves!

Hi. This is my first book club experience. Please give me a chance to warm to it.  I am a 63 year old retired pharmacist and I love to read. I will read just about any genre except vampires. They make me  nervous.

I can't wait to get started.

Don't be too intimidated, Everyman. I've never read anything of Epictetus'.....I heard that quote on the movie Serendipity (b/c I'm not only an avid reader, but a sucker for romantic comedies) and fell in love with it.

Hi, I go by IBIS which are my initials. I've always enjoyed lively discussions of controversial books (or books that tackle controversial and disturbing subject matter!)

 

I'm a professional musician; I read portions of well written passages out loud because I love hearing rhythms...  both verbal and musical. "Feather Man" is one of those books.

Re: Feather Man discussion participants: Please introduce yourselves!

Hi Everyone!

 

My name is Wendi, and I am from the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle, but far enough away to avoid some of the traffic!

 

I'm a stay at home mom, do consulting and bookkeeping from my home during the day, and read/post to my blog through the night. 

 

I love reading, and really haven't found a genre I don't like, except sometimes maybe dry history or text books.  I can see that a few of you are WAY ahead of me on the book - I'm still reading, but I'm off to get another few chapters under way in a few minutes! 

 

I look forward to participating in the discussions!

Hi! I am Janice from Kentucky. I have participated in "first reads" discussions before, but not any on this particular board. I am interested in seeing others perspectives on this book and looking forward to the discussions.
