As much as I enjoyed reading Paige, I think I enjoyed Athena more. Not only do we get to know each of the book club members intimately with all of their idiosyncrasies and heartbreaks, we also get to see how they are viewed by each other. How often do you get a glimpse of yourself through someone else's eyes?
With each book, it seems like the problems escalate, when in reality, each character had the most devestating problems for their personality types--problems designed for their own individual growth. Each of us comes with our own package of problems to work through.
