Gamekeeper Turned Poacher – Questions

  1. At what point did you find yourself getting into the book? Were you hooked early or did it take a while for your interest to develop?
  1. Was the story more about plot or characters?
  1. Are there any sections of the book that you particularly liked?
  1. What do you make of the settings? Were any familiar and, if so, did that add to the experience? For those that weren’t did you find the locations sufficiently engaging?
  1. Do you feel there were any messages within the book or was it merely written to entertain?
  1. What is your emotional reaction to the key people of Brandt, Johnson and McNeil? Did your feelings towards them chance over the course of the story?
  1. How credible/believable did you find the book? Was the level of profanity and elements of a sexual nature justified in the context of the story?
  1. Most of the chapters were written from a sole character’s perspective. Did you like that style or would you have preferred a different structure?
  1. How did you feel about the ending? What did you like, what did you not like, and is there anything you would have liked done differently?
  1. Did the book change your opinion or perspective about anything?

And just for a bit of fun:

If the book were being adapted into a movie, who would you want to see play what parts?
