The Guest List; Book Club Questions

A Book Club is always a good way to bond with those people who share your love of books, but occasionally the group needs a little prompting on discussion topics to get the conversation flowing. Please find below a few ideas to get things started.

  1. What were you expecting from the book to start with? Did the book meet your expectations? If not, what was different?
  2. Who did you inititally think the victim was going to be?
  3. Based on your suspected victim, who were you expecting the murderer to be? What made you suspect them?
  4. How did you feel about the reveal at the end?
  5. Are there any happy couples in this book? Who are they, and why do they work
  6. Did you find one of the characters more appealing than the others? What made you enjoy them more?
  7. Which secret was the biggest surprise to you? Were there any that you saw coming?
  8. How did you feel about the ending? Did you still have any questions that you felt weren’t answered?
  9. What did you think about the friendship between the school friends? Is it a healthy dynamic for everyone, anyone or no’one?
  10. Would you like to have your wedding on the island? Does the setting appeal to you? Would you like to live there?
  11. How did you feel about the murderer and their actions?
  12. If you could introduce a character from a different book into this setting, who would it be? Would they shake things up or smooth them out?
  13. The blurb says ‘thirteen guests, one body’ – do you think the number of guests was chosen on purpose for unlucky number thirteen?
  14. Have you read any other Lucy Foley books? How does this one compare?
