Lit Circle Discussion

Filed under: WHITE DARKNESS — katefrazer @ 4:32 pm

Joyce did an excellent job explaining what we talked about last week.  We also spent a little time discussing what made this book win the Printz Award, yet we didn’t seem to come up with any really firm answers.  As Joyce mentioned, we discussed the way in which females were portrayed in the novel, and then the appeal it might have for male readers.  Overall, we were not too sure how interested they would be. 

I was really interested in some of the ideas my group members came up with to get readers excited and hooked by the book-such as reading a later, more suspense filled passage out loud.  While the book is told from Sym’s perspective and has all of her 14 year-old girl emotions, there still is plenty of action to get into.  The book really does have both emotional and adventurous content both of which gave us a lot to talk about! — Kate
