Federal Hill Book & Wine Club Message Board › Bookclub meetup tonight
Unfortunately, I am typing this from an airplane, as I got stuck on a very last minute work trip. So I won't be able to make it tonight, which sucks because this book provides SO much to talk about.
You have a reservation under Patti Jefferson at HomeSlyce on light street.
I'm sure you will have a great discussion, but here are some questions you may want to consider and discuss:
Is Humbert Humbert consistent in his actions? Is he likeable? Is he a fully developed characters?
What is the central/primary purpose of Lolita? Is the purpose important or meaningful?
Why is the novel so controversial? Do you think the book should be censored or banned?
How essential is the setting to the story? Could the story have taken place anywhere else?
How did the book make you feel?
Why did Humbert use nicknames instead of Lolita's real name?
Do you think she actually loved him?
If Humbert believes that Lolita was truly mature enough and that he did nothing wrong, why address the readers as if we are a jury?
What is the role of family and community in this novel?
Does Lolita end the way you expected? How? Why?
