Reader's Den: "The Human Stain" Wrap Up
Thank you for participating in this month’s Reader’s Den! I hope you enjoyed reading The Human Stain by Philip Roth. Remember, the Reader's Den is always open! You are always welcome to come back and post your comments about the novel.
If you’re interested in reading other works by Philip Roth or titles that are similar, then I would suggest these books:
- American Pastoral by Philip Roth
- Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
- I Married a Communist by Philip Roth
- Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee
If you finished up the novel already, now might be a good time to check out and watch The Human Stain film. Feel free to comment on this page about the differences between the movie and the novel. They are quite numerous, as the film had to leave many things out.
If you are interested in connecting with other book lovers online, there are a few social networking site you should feel free to check out. Goodreads, which is like a Facebook for books, allows you to update your friends on what you're reading, have already read, and what you want to read. It even allows you to share with everyone what page you're on! The Reader's Den is on Goodreads. LibraryThing is another website and it allows you to create your own online book catalog. If you have a lot of books and want to organize them, then LibraryThing is definitely the website for you!
Join us next month as we discuss Amberville by Tim Davys. Thanks for reading!
