Well, I am now officially half way through Life of Pi and I can't help thinking aobut the Nerd Herd's first discussion group in November. I am enjoying the book - if I wasn't, I would not still be reading, but I cannot for the life of me think about what we are going to talk about. I don't know if it is because I am not deep enough to discuss Pi Patel and his adventures or if I just don't care that much to look deeper into Pi's life. I don't want to feel like the odd ball out, but I don't know that I will have all that much to discuss. Judy wants everyone to bring a question or discussion prompt to the meeting, but I just don't know what I have to spur discussion. I am planning on finishing the book within the next week and maybe then I will have some intellectually stimulating discussion prompt that will shock the shit out of the Nerd Herd...I doubt it but it is possible. I am very interested to see what everyone else thinks about the book and what different questions they bring to the club meeting. Hopefully Jeanette will be in the same boat...not that I think you aren't deep, but I think you and I are on the same page and will just take the story at face value and not look that deeply into the Life of Pi! I hope the Nerd Herd doesn't think I am an idiot for not understanding the whole discussion part of the club!
