Let's Get Started: Discussion Questions for Gardens of Water

Wow, lots of you out there have already picked up your copy of Gardens of Water, and are no doubt reading away (I'm a librarian, I've seen how voracious you are)!

So hit me with your thoughts and ideas; in case you've never added a comment to a blog posting (which is what you're reading right now), all you need to do is click on the word "Comments" below. A box will pop up, and inside it you can tell me what you like or don't like about Gardens of Water. Fill in the "Word Verification" box with the password provided, then "Choose an Identity" (you can remain anonymous if you like) and click "Publish Your Comment", and, once approved, your comments will appear right underneath my posting.

Here are a couple questions to get things started:

Which character do you relate to the most so far, and why?

Have you come across a descriptive passage yet that you find particularly powerful or evocative?

Oh, and don't forget to mark your calendar for Alan Drew's Main Library appearance on June 21st...

I just finished the book, and I absolutely loved it. Thank you to the library for leading me to it! I loved the themes of blame and forgiveness in the book.
