Just finished The Friday Night Knitting Club
Has anyone else read this? I found myself bored thru most of the book. Maybe the movie version will be better. Comments?

I don't want to discourage anyone from buying a book--another passion of mine. I purchased mine thru Amazon.com and read all the comments (good and bad) before deciding.

I'm waiting for it to come in at the library. I just checked...I'm number 2 on the list now...down from like 15. Been waiting awhile.

For some reason, I envision this book as a cross between Friday Night Magic and Fight Club, but with a lot of yarn. I don't think that's right, though.

Mine is from the library -- like I said, so far, so good -- but I haven't gotten very far with my reading -- I have an entrelac project that I am obsessively knitting on.

From what I've read, I like the writing style. I have been having trouble concentrating on anything I read these days and when I find something that I can get through easily, I'm happy.

I like the character descriptions and I like the opening page which begins: " Choosing your wool is dizzying with potential: The waves of colors and textures tempt with visions of a sweater or cap (and all the accompanying compliments you hope to receive) but don't reveal the hard work required to get there. . . ."

So far the descriptions of the shop make me wish it existed and I could get there.

I'll let you know if I still like the book after a few more chapters!

Best,
Susan

I was disappointed with the book. I agree with the posts that suggest getting it from the library.

I have this very annoying habit-------I have to read any book I buy! If I borrow it from the library, I feel free to return it after giving the author a fair chance. I paid $$$ for this one!!!!
