Book Club Pick: The Age of Hope by David Bergen

Looking for a new read for your book club?

We suggest The Age of Hope by David Bergen!

The Age of Hope is the story of Hope Koop, from her teenage years to old age. Hope is a woman trying to raise a family, be a good wife, while also dealing with questions about herself, her role as a woman and her role in the world. Set in Manitoba, this is Canadian fiction at its finest from Giller prize-winning author David Bergen.

The Age of Hope is one of the stories I’ve shared with my friends, and have talked about at length with my coworkers because of the way it portrays the life of a woman. I think book  clubs will want to talk about Hope, because Hope represents so many traits in all of us.

  1. I like to talk about whatever book I’m currently reading. Today, it’s This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel. I began reading it on Sunday morning and have not put it down. I have about 30pgs left & absolutely LOVE it. I can’t wait to start the sequel, Such Wicked Intent! The 50 Book Pledge has introduced me to so many great books this year and one of my favourites was Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. A surprise hit for me was The Perks of Being a Wallflower and a real disappointment was 50 Shades. (Could NOT get past page 50. The writing, in my opinion, was so poor.) Thanks Savvy Reader for all the great recommendations! 😉

  2. I talk about anything I am reading, I go through phases where I am just to mentally busy to settle into a book, I recently devoured The Virgin Cure @sideshowAmi. I am an Usborne Book consultant so I am always talking about children’s books and literacy.

  3. I read all different genres, so it is hard to pick one book, for adult it would probably be prisoner of tehran, for YA, it would probably be Seraphina 🙂

  4. Hard to just talk about one book. But the one that comes to mind is The Little Prince an amazing classic tale that has so much meaning and life lessons.
