Starting with this book, we are taking the League in a new direction. The group started with us treating this more as a book club, and less as a show. Then, The Celestine Prophecy was suggested as the second book. In our upcoming episode, you'll see just what we mean as we make the leap into book review show...
Our format will change from the person who submitted the book creating questions to the League as a group creating three questions. We will then focus on rating the book using our R.E.S.P.E.C.T. scoring guidelines.
Marie chose this week's book, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, because the author was self-published and it became a best-seller. Since then, the author has publish several other books, which created a following. Our curiosity was piqued as to what was so special about these books. The following are the group questions that will be discussed:
1. What was so enticing about the book that so many people not only bought it, but bought into it--and continued buying the series?
2. The book was published in 1996 and key elements pertain to the millennium. Is the perspective still applicable or relevant?
3. How do you feel about the science that is portrayed in this book? Is it valid?
