    Thousands of women have stepped inside Becker’s Bridal in Fowler, Michigan, to try on their dream dresses in the Magic Room, a special space with soft lighting, a circular pedestal, and mirrors that carry a bride’s reflections into infinity. The women bring with them their most precious expectations about romance, love, fidelity, permanence, and tradition. Each bride who passes through has a story to tell - one that carried her there, to that dress, that room, that moment.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, the women in my book club also read it and they all seemed to like it better than me.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Hearing the stories of the various women and their families.


    What about Sandra Burr and Jeffrey Zaslow ’s performance did you like?

    Easy to understand, pleasant voices.


    Do you think The Magic Room needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope. Sadly, I guess it would have to be written by someone else:(


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good, entertaining book. If I could have given it half stars I woulda kicked it up a half.

    Jennifer Egan brings her unique gifts as a novelist and short story writer to a compulsively listenable narrative that centers on Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the passionate, troubled young woman he employs.

    What disappointed you about A Visit from the Goon Squad?

    Very hard to follow. Would change from one place and time to another. Very confusing!


    What could Jennifer Egan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it less confusing.
