Where Crawdads Sing: 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. How did you feel about the ending of the book? Were you surprised?
  3. How do you feel the setting effected the story for you as a reader, and for Kya as a character?
  4. Was Kya right to isolate herself further? Is it better if it is a choice, rather than something that is done to her?
  5. Was there a point in the book that touched you more than the rest of the book? What did it mean to you?
  6. Is there anybody who you strongly feel should read this book?
  7. Who is the most important character to you after Kya?
  8. Who, if anyone, really loved Kya? How did they show it, and how did she understand that?
  9. What is your opinion on Kyas mother leaving?
  10. Was Jumpin right not to help the Social Services to find Kya?
  11. If you could pick a moment in the book to have witnessed firsthand, which one would it have been?
  12. How did you feel about the poetry that Kya remembers and recites throughout the book? Did you recognise any of them? How did you find it enhanced the story?
  13. Kya spends a lot of time observing people from a distance. What did she feel/ learn from this?
  14. How do you feel that this book will translate into a film? Will you be watching it?
