狐笛のかなた Home Thread
This is the home thread for 狐笛のかなた. While this book club isn’t part of the intermediate book club, that is the general demographic that I’m targeting in terms of difficulty and pace. There is only one book in this series. It’s written by the same author as 獣の奏者, which we enjoyed quite a bit in its bookclub.
Where to Purchase
I copied this summary from Amazon and haven’t read it myself, so I don’t know how much of the plot it gives away.
Check out the first several pages here to gauge the difficulty:
We’ll be reading entire chapters every week rather than a set number of pages. This worked very well for 獣の奏者, so we will be continuing that here. In some cases, we will read multiple chapters in the same week to keep at a reasonable pace.

We’ll be reading every week on Sundays at 8:30AM Eastern U.S. time. The next reading session in your local time zone is 2021-01-24T13:30:00Z.
Note that your read aloud time may change partway through the book due to daylight savings! In each session we will read the previous week’s section, discuss the contents, and ask questions as needed.
