Welcome back to Book Club! Get your drinks, snacks and any notes you have and gather round for the final discussions on Diamonds Are Forever! (If you want any resources for DaF, please find the link to the resources in the sidebar on the right!)
Book Club is designed to be a place where you can go beyond the Bond movies and delve into another medium with our favourite secret agent. There are no set discussions--if you have anything interesting you want to discuss about your reading experience, comments on the text, or even how reading the book might have changed your view on the characters in the movies, then do share!
Some questions to get us started!
1) What do you think of the book overall? What bits would you want to improve?
2) Has the book changed your opinion on James Bond (the character)? What new qualities do you think he has?
3) What did you think about the ending of the book? (In general, but also the last line, "It reads better than it lives.")
These questions are just to get you started. As always, please post your opinions, views and other discussion points about the book that you want to talk about! Happy discussing!
Note - we will be discussing THE WHOLE book this week, so naturally there will be spoilers if you have not yet finished the book!
Please note - our next book is From Russia With Love, but the start date is undecided due to the upcoming winter holiday. We'll update the schedule in the sidebar when we have more information, and in the meantime, feel free to check out our resources page, where you can find copies of the book, and read ahead!
