Trivia 101

Filed under: Trivia — susanbright @ 9:31 am


This page turner which the Friday Morning Bookclub read brings back to life  many of our favorite characters from The Great Gatsby. Can you name the book?

Thank you Esther! Tom and Daisy Buchanan as well as Jay Gatsby himself come alive in The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian. This page turner will keep you on your toes and what an ending! Bohjalian is also the author of Midwives.

    • Hi Resa! Check the right hand bar…under pages.Another was a strange book and the main character grew up in the same town as Jay Gatsby.

  2. I had to look back at our list, but I’m thinking it’s The American Heiress?

  3. I was thinking one of the new books about Zelda but neither one was on your list so I’m totally stumped.

    • One more clue…. This book could be described as a psychological thriller!

  4. OK, the only psychological thriller that I can think of on our Book List is Gone Girl, but I can’t remember the connection to Gatsby. If that’s the right answer I will need to go back to the book and check it out. Is that the right answer? This was a tough Trivia question but a good one!

    • Good try but……not the answer. Search back further in your memory!

  5. The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalion. I remember thinking that it was a weird story.
