Summer is coming to an end, and so is The Word On The Street’s Book Club discussion of The Deadbeat Club!
This week, book club leader Christine has a few last questions based on page 230 to the end of the book. Feel free to use these as a jumping-off point for any other thoughts or questions you may have too.
Thanks to all who’ve read along and shared their thoughts on the book!

Hi everyone! Welcome to our last week of discussion. This month has completely flown by and it has been such a wonderful experience to read and discuss this book with you all. Thank you again for taking time to read and comment regularly. Because of that, we got some really great conversation flowing in the past three weeks in the comments. So without further ado, lets move forward with the final discussion questions.
1) We left off last week with the drug war really unravelling and coming to the forefront. Were you surprised to see that the cops had more involvement in the final chapters? I felt that they really developed more for me (Lance especially) in the final chapters. It’s interesting because we truly did move away from the typical hero story where we follow Grey.
2) How did you feel about Nick Rosco’s end? Were you expecting it at all?
3) Were you satisfied with how the entire story wrapped up? Specifically what about character specific narratives like Grey, Dara and Travis?
4) Lastly, to bring it back to a question I asked in the first week about titles… Now that we’ve finished the book, what do you make of the title The Deadbeat Club? What do you think it means having finished the book? Who specifically is “TDC”?
As always, feel free to add your own questions as well in the comments.
Thank you again for participating in the book club! I hope you had a wonderful time. I hope to see you all next month at The Word On The Street!
