Hello from Carolyn, Nique, and Riley! Here we will be discussing Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind. We chose this book because we were looking for a novel that would keep us interested, and the story of a serial killer seemed to fit the bill. This story is about Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, an orphaned young man in France who is infatuated with scent in a foul smelling city. His obsession with smell leads to him becoming a brutal serial killer (um ew!). With murder of course come drama and action, so we are looking forward to discussing this book and staying engaged in the story of the eighteenth century killer, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille.
