The Mountain Between Us, Week 1

Welcome to a new Online Book Club discussion for September! This month, we're reading The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin. 

The Online Book Club, if you've never joined us before, is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving a comment in the comments section. Make sure you check back each week and see what new topics we're talking about. 

The Mountain Between Us is a harrowing story about Ben, a surgeon, and Ashley, a magazine writer. After their plane crashes on an icy mountain, they have to find a way to survive. Even though they are strangers at the beginning of the book, they grow to trust each other as they rely on each other to make it through their ordeal. Also, there are a couple of surprising twists that I can't wait to talk to you about! It's a great book if you're interested in a survival story with a lot of interesting character growth and development.

You can also watch The Mountain Between Us movie if you're interested in the story but don't want to read with us. Check out the trailer above if you're on the fence about watching this month. Feel free to leave comments about the movie on the blog posts, even if you aren't reading the book with us. 

We'll be reading the first seventeen chapters for the discussion next week, so make sure to read that section by next week if you want to follow our pace. I hope you'll join the discussion!
