This week, book club leader Karen has a few questions based on pages 74 – 153.
Part 3 – Ch 15-24 (pg. 242)
Part 4 – Ch 24 – End
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your insightful comments this past week! You definitely made me rethink some of my impressions, which is exactly what I love about book clubs. I can’t wait to start discussing part 2!
- What was your first reaction after finishing the part? Was there anything that surprised you? I can’t say I saw the outcome of the second expedition coming!
- I have to admit that one of my shortcomings as a reader is that I’m often too trusting of the narrator, which is why I loved that some of you weren’t sure whether to trust Wand’s story in the previous part! Do you think Benny is a reliable narrator?
- Given how chapter 14 ends, I really want to talk about Captain Morgan. What do you think of him now? I did not see him as a heartless man in part 1, but now I’m starting to doubt him. Do you think everything has been a part of a bigger plan, or did he genuinely enjoy watching the priests suffer?
Please feel free to add your questions in the comments as well!
