SABRIEL READ-A-LONG PART ONE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

IT’S FINALLY TIME! Our Sabriel Read-a-Long starts this week! Chapters 1 – 10 are to be read by the end of the week. Here’s our discussion questions for this week. These are, of course, not mandatory, and are simply something to base your posts around should you need something! If you do make posts, please tag me in them somewhere so I can see them! You can link to this post or to this one. I can’t wait to see what you all think of one of my favorite books.

QUESTIONS FOR WEEK ONE:

1. Our main character comes into this world dead, but her father immediately brings her back to life. What do you think this foretells for the rest of the book going forward?

2. There is a creeping sense of foreboding as soon as Sabriel crosses the Wall and enters the Old Kingdom. What do you think lurks there?

3. When Sabriel reaches the Wall, she is shown immediately as be both competent, and unsure. Does this endear her to you, as a reader, or make you less sure about her prospects in the story?

4. Charter Magic is a huge part of this story. What do you think of the magic system so far? What do you think the Charter Stones do? Why are they destroyed?

5. We meet Mogget in Chapter Eight. What do you think he is? Is he good, evil, or neither? Why do you think he is forbidden from speaking about the Greater Dead? Is it a device for the author, to drag out the mystery, or do you think there is a in-story reason?

For those of you that have read the book, let me know if you’ve got any ideas for a discussion question! I’m not very good at coming up with them!
