So I suck at reading actual books currently. When I try to read I pretty much fall asleep soon after. I have high hopes of doing some reading today after shopping with my mom. I really do like the book so far and like the jumping back and forth of perspectives. I found this discussion question about the book from litlovers.com and thought it would be a good one to ask…
Glass has chosen to tell this story through alternating perspectives and, from both sides, in first person. How does this affect your reading? How do you relate to both sisters and see them differently than perhaps they are able to see each other? Take a look at the different subtitles-from “Swim to the Middle” to “The Last Word.” What do they add, if anything, to your reading of the larger story?
I think it makes you be more aware of what you are reading and to stay more focused on your reading. No lazy reading allowed. I like that Clem seems to be more of a live and let live type of girl and Louisa seems so unsure of what and who she is. But unfortunately, I haven’t gotten far enough to add much more of perspective yet..
What do you think?
