Elektra: 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 does Elektra compare to other retellings of Greek Myths?
  3. How do you feel about Apollo’s curse on Cassandra, and on what prompted the curse?
  4. Did you read Ariadne? How did this book compare for you?
  5. The book is full of reprehensible characters, but who causes the most harm in your eyes?
  6. Who is your favourite of the three main characters? Which did you identify with the most?
  7. Did you know how any of the three stories ended before you started to read? How did knowing, or not knowing, make you feel as the plot unravelled?
  8. Who elses perspective do you think would have enhanced the book?
  9. How do you think this would translate into a film?
  10. Would you recommend this to any friends? Who? Why?
