Introduction to discussion

We've spent the month of May reading and Falling, fly from author Skyler White and for the next 2 days I will post a series of discussion questions for everyone to comment on. This month we also have the added bonus of answering questions that Skyler created herself and posted on her website. I wanted to venture from our beaten path and more thoroughly explore this book, examining not only intent and interpretation as per Skyler, but also the simple nuances that made this such a beautiful book to read.

Reading this book was an emotional journey of discovery for Olivia and Dominic and to do these characters justice, I found myself slowing down for the first time in ages, savoring each word, pondering each idea, and exploring my own thoughts on hope and love, having and wanting, wanting and needing, living or dying. Skyler's next book, In Dreams Begin, comes out in November and I find myself impatient at the thought of waiting that long.

I finally finished and Falling, fly this morning. The story and writing were beautiful. I wasn't prepared to be hit on such a philosophical level, but I'm glad I was. Great pick!

Hi Shelley! Glad you could stop by. I think you'll really enjoy the book but be prepared for some deep thinking in some parts. This book definitely isn't warm and fluffy bunnies:)

Hey Jen! Beautiful is exactly how I would describe it too:)
