Good morning book lovers! Today, the CSLJ Book Club begins its discussion of The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I hope you have enjoyed the book as much I have and I am really looking forward to chatting with you about it.
To join in the conversation, simply leave a comment on this post with your thoughts and opinions about today’s discussion question. I’ll add new discussion questions about the book tomorrow, and on Sat. Nov. 14th, and Tues. Nov. 17th. You can also sign up here to receive an email when new discussion questions have been added.
— Discussion Questions —
Day 1: What did you think of The Thirteenth Tale? Did you enjoy it? Why or why not? Was there any particular character or part of the book that you especially liked or disliked? Why?
Day 2: Books play a major part in the story and specific books – like Jane Eyre – are used as recurring themes and symbols in the plot. What are your thoughts about this? Do you think the bookish motifs Diane Setterfield used in The Thirteenth Tale enhance the story?
