Book Group - Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Tigers in Red Weather was our autumn book pick. As it's a relatively new book, still in hardback (we all read on the Kindle this time!) we didn't find any book group questions.  I've found some reviews / comments on the book (it was an Oprah pick!) and of course we came up with some questions on the day.

We asked ourselves the following questions:
  • How did the narration of the book, through different viewpoints affect your reading of the book and why?
  • Which was your favourite section of the book and why?
  • What did you think of the characters? Were any of them more likable than others?
  • What were the prevalent themes throughout the book and how did that lead to the overall feeling?
  • Who was the happiest in the book, who was the saddest?
  • Did Tigers in Red Weather remind you of any other books and why?

For us, the book made us think of The Great Gatsby which was our second book pick back in the day. So we talked a lot about the similarities and differences.  In addition, I had just finished Foreign Bodies by Cynthia Ozick (discussed in my last post) and so we talked about that too.

All in all, it was a popular book within the group and one we'd recommend for discussion.
