The Lot Lands Discussion

Recommended Posts

I'm about halfway through The True Bastards.  While I'm enjoying it I'm not sure if there's a whole lot to discuss on stream with this series.  It's more lighthearted (not in regards to violence) in terms of story and themes.  Some books you really want to discuss because there's so much there, but I'm not sure if this is one of them.

Thoughts?

Agreed. I took a break after our 50 pages. But to be fair, I've been in a slump

Sorry I haven’t been chatting! I did finish the first two books and overall liked them. I really liked True Bastards and the things we learned in the story. I agree there’s not necessarily much to dig into for a discussion. It’s more of a fun story, even though there are some heavier themes and the violence is there….hopefully I’m making sense. Hoping to dig into the third book soon. The recent events have me a bit all over the place so not feeling like reading right now. Maybe over the weekend?

That does make sense.  There are heavy themes but overall the story seems a little silly.  It's a tough balance to pull off
