Questions Week 1 (March 5th): Chapters 1 to 5
1) Kevin Hearne had the most perfect beginning for this book: "There are many perks to living for twenty-one centuries, and formost among them is bearing witness to the rare birth of genius." If you were to live for centuries what do you think you would be excited to see?Hmmm... I guess watching as technology changes and as humans change as well. Things actually become quite different very quickly! Think about a mere 100 years ago and how different it is now. Imagine if you've lived hundreds of years, 100 years really isn't that long!
2)In the 2nd chapter we learn about the amulet and its protection powers! Do you think having met the Morrigan and heard about Aenghus Og that it will be enough to protect Atticus? I mean the Morrigan has a point about hot chicks coming after him and his defenses might be down! He is very male!I'm afraid to say much about this because I don't want to leave any spoilers. I think that he knows better then to let his guard down around hot chicks, but everyone makes mistakes...
3) The literary world's coolest dog is introduced in this chapter! Did you love Oberon immediately? Show me a picture or describe the type of animal you would love to have as a talking companion! (Cat, Dog, Mouse, Sloth, Horse---what is your pick--pictures please)?Oh Oberon is definitely the worlds greatest dog! I can't grab any pics right now but I think a Great Pyrenees would be an awesome talking companion. I've always wanted one...
4) In this chapter Flidais asked Atticus what his name is and then precedes to ask if anyone actually believes he is Greek? He says nobody pays attention to names here. Do you know what your name means and where it comes from? Or do you have a name you wish had? Let's talk names!My mom named me Candace because she wanted to call me Candy. By 1st grade I was saying it was a no-go, my name is CANDACE. I was sick of all the teasing. My grandma's are the only ones that call me Candy now, thank GOODNESS! But I'm not sure where Candace originates.
I did name my daughter Phaedra and did lots of research on it. It's a Greek name and a Greek goddess was named Phaedra. Do me a favor and don't look it up though, it's not a happy story. I loved the name and decided the story doesn't matter that much.
5) We learn about Atticus' lawyers in this chapter, a rather unique combo! Without jumping ahead, would you hire a lawyer combination of two supernaturals who on the surface would appear to be natural enemies or at the very least two very Alpha attitudes? What would be the positives and negatives of that decision.Yeah because you have two different perspectives on things!
