Hey everyone! If you've started reading the book, regardless of what's going on in the site like I have, then I think we should have a discussion. We can continue this book club, or we can start another one, depending on what happens in the future, if it becomes and remains active.
So I have the first question:
When I first started reading I wasn't sure I could really take seriously the idea of a professor attempting to teach a dog to speak, but as I continued reading I became more and more sure that he might succeed. Has the same happened to you? And if so, why?
For me, the way it was written, with Paul so methodically and scientifically going about the task of teaching Lorelei to speak, something so ridiculous sounding for most of us, gave it a sense of truth. It did not feel forced or desperate, although obviously it is. For Paul it seemed like the most logical solution to the question of what happened to Lexy. It really did not take a lot of thinking on his part before he came to the conclusion of what he must do. Grief leads us to crazy things.
What do you all think?
