Please read the Introduction (if your edition has it) and Chapters 1-5 by Thursday, December 14.
In a near landslide, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin has been chosen by our word-loving community as the first work to be discussed in the newly resurrected Avocado Book Club!
The purpose of this post is to discuss everyone’s favorite thing: logistics.
It turns out I already read this novel in university, but I barely remember anything about it. (Which is sad because it wasn’t that long ago…)
Anyway, IIRC, the book wasn’t too long. Should we have several discussions for it?
- Discussion for the first half of book (Or a more natural halfway point)
- Discussion for the book as a whole
- Discussion for themes, tropes, etc.
People who’ve already read the book and actually remember what happens in it, any suggestions on how to structure the discussions? Should we combine #2 and #3? Divide the book into smaller segments?
