Book Club Fans

Triumph and Xamnesia are the perfect books to keep yourself awake in the holidays with your family! You know, when you have cooked, eaten, drunk and spoken so much that you find yourself on the sofa sleepily wondering how can you possibly get up again. Well, page after page you won’t get up! But you’ll be really awake…

Stella Repola, France

Thank you for waking at that ungodly hour in Europe to talk to our book group! You brought your book to life for all of us.

Top 10 Questions
  1. How did you experience the book? Were you engaged immediately, or did it take you a while to “get into it”? How did you feel reading it—amused, sad, disturbed, confused, bored…?
  1. Did you relate to the main characters?
  1. Do the main characters change by the end of the book?
  1. Is the plot engaging—does the story interest you? Is this a plot-driven book: a fast-paced page-turner? Or does the story unfold slowly with a focus on character development? Were you surprised by the plot’s complications? Or did you find it predictable, even formulaic?
  1. The book’s genre is memoir. Did you wonder if parts were made up or believe it all to be true. (Note from Lizzie: it’s all true. Except, I made up a country’s name because of the confidentiality agreements I signed with the people I worked for.) If this were a novel, would you have different expectations for the book?
  1. What main ideas—themes—does the author explore? (Consider the title, often a clue to a theme.) What are the things she “forgets” from her subtitle?
  1. What passages strike you as insightful, or funny, or poignant? Would you say this is a funny read? Moving? What was your favorite part?
  1. Is the ending satisfying? If so, why? If not, how would you change it?
  1. If you could ask the author a question, what would you ask? Does this book inspire you to read other books by her?
  1. Has this memoir changed you? Have you learned something new or been exposed to different ideas about people or a certain part of the world? Was anything controversial about the book? Have you ever felt “invisible and invincible” like the mindset of “xamnesia” the author described herself as experiencing?
