What FICTION book would you like to read in August through October?

Please suggest fiction books that you think would be fun to read and discuss as a community during the 90 day period of August, September and October 2018. Only post in here if you have 10 or more posts on the BookTalk.org forums AND actually plan to participate in the fiction book discussion. This thread is not an opportunity for authors to promote their own books. We are looking for a book to read and talk about as a group.

So what should we read!? :bananadance:

Actually I have a doubleheader for you. First, "The Power Of One", second "Tandia" both by Bryce Courtenay. "Tandia" is the sequel to #1. Both books are set in South Africa in late 1930's through late 1950's.

"The Power Of One" is in my top 20 list of the best books I've ever read - "Tandia" even better!

Give them a try.

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood is # 3 on Amazon and the video series is all the rage on Hulu. I haven't seen it and don't know much about it, but sounds interesting.
Quote:
From the Inside Flap:
In the world of the near future, who will control women's bodies? Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are only valued if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now....
Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, "The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.

A good friend was just telling me about the series for The Handmaid's Tale and I've been wanting to check it out. Unfortunately, I don't currently pay for a Hulu subscription and that seems to be my only option for watching it. I used to pay for the commercial-free subscription back when I was binge-watching Lost.

I like this book suggestion, LanDroid. :appl:
