Book Discussion Group: The Painted Veil
I have a little downtime.
I thought I would try a different project (for me anyway), I am going to be reading "The Painted Veil" by W.Somerset Maugham.
I am looking at what a person get out of fiction books. If you are interested lets talk about discussion questions, your learning/reading process, your feelings/thoughts associated with the information in the story, and your reading/journaling schedule.
It is going to be a very postmodern approach, no right or wrong answers - just your interpretation. I am going to be posting every time I read 7-8 chapters, either with questions or observations.
Hey! You don't have to travel very far to join this group!
Join us in the social and relationships forum!!!
To get the ball rolling...Here are some questions to think or post about.
The book starts immediately with the main female character indulging in an extra marital affair.
Question 1: Is it worse for the adulterer to be the man or the woman?
Question 2: (For those that read the book) Would you hire Charles to be a dating coach. Why or why not?
Question 3: If you could give advice to Charles, Kitty or Walter. What would it be?
I hope everyone enjoys this thread and gets something out of it...
Oh...Let's try to avoid spoilers. I haven't finished the book or watched the movie.

I'll be happy to talk with you once you've finished the book.
This is not a story about adultery -- from my perspective, it's a story about 100% responsibility. I love Somerset Maugham -- he's so steamy and swampy, like Tennessee Williams.
