Book Club: Star Sand

Roger Pulvers "Star Sand"
Roger Pulvers “Star Sand”

Sorry for the delay on posting this up. I literally forgot until this morning and had to smack my head for forgetting to check my calendar (and I’d written this down at least 5 times).

Feel free to respond in the comments below or later on this evening on the Facebook page.  I’ve also created a space on Goodreads for all discussion on books at PW.  It will also allow for a chance for everyone to get to know each other, to discover, talk and recommend more books.

Here are some questions for “Star Sand”:

  1. Did you like the book?
  2. Who was your favorite character?
  3. What did you think of the book split up into three parts?
  4. In this day and age, do you think if we were caught up in a war that we could take in and care for an enemy deserter?
  5. Do you think if we were at war, do you think you would be able to live like the people of Hatoma Isle?  Not only did they seem resourceful, but they looked out for each other.  Do you think you could do the same?
  6. Star Sand is named after the type of sand that is found at Hatoma Isle.  Did reading about this little island encourage you to want to visit and gather your own bottles of star sand?
  7. The brother echoed a lot of the war’s propaganda.  This is something you see a lot of in most countries.  What were you thoughts on the brother?  Do you think he was right, keeping strong to what the government said was the right thing to do?  Or do you think holding true to the human side was the right thing to do?
  8. Do you think the sisters knew about the cave and what was going on in there?
  9. What did you think of the ending?

I’ve posted my answers to the above questions at the Goodreads discussion board. You can find the Star Sand discussion here.
