Welcome back, members of the PopUK Book Club! Last week we discussed the first part, so now it's time to talk about the middle section of Choke. Feel free to read ahead, but please don't reveal any spoilers in the comments.
A quick reminder of how the Book Club works is that each week I'll suggest a section to complete by the following Monday, and will post a few questions to start our discussion in the comments section. We'll read a book a month.
We'll discuss the final part on Mon. 27th, so we're ready for the film version, starring Sam Rockwell and Angelica Houston, when it's released next month.
After the jump you'll find questions to start the discussion, but feel free to write about whatever you found interesting.
The next assignment: Read to the end of Choke (Chapter 49) by Mon. 27 Oct.
Ready to discuss the middle section of Choke? Just read more.
- What do you think about the idea that Victor was conceived from the foreskin of Jesus? And his mantra of: What would Jesus NOT do?
- What are your thoughts on Denny's rock collecting?
- Victor says addictions enable us to escape our knowledge, and he claims being an addict is a pro-active way of knowing how you'll die. How do you feel about the way addiction is represented in the novel?
