Sorry for posting this late and without any summaries. It's been a very crazy week for me and I forgot!



-Why do you think there is so much Christian imagery here? (The book Christine's reading and her being described as a nun.)

-Do you think Erik's sudden change of heart is believable?

-What do you think of Erik's past described in the Epilogue?

-What are your thoughts on the whole novel?

I love how open-ended it is. Not one bit of Erik's confession is verifiable, and none of the 'proof' the narrator offers at the end stands up to examination either. We really only have the word of the Persian, who we know is almost obsessed with Erik. It's all very readerly.
