Well, we made it to the end! This week I am covering the final chapters of The Galaxy, and the Ground Within for our Sci-Fi Month Read Along! SPOILERS BELOW.
The tension previously hinted at between Pei and Speaker finally comes to a head. What were your thoughts/feelings on their argument? Do you think either of them were in the right regarding their views?
And regarding their subsequent conversation, in which an understanding of sorts is reached, how do you feel about that particular resolution? How satisfactory was it for you?
We’re treated to a few denouement-style scenes in closing, where each of the previously stranded travelers (and Ouloo!) stay in contact by way of favours and gifts. Do you have a favourite moment from these chapters?
And finally, what are your overall thoughts and feelings on the book? Any other scenes/moments you want to highlight that stood out for you?
That’s it for my questions, but as always you can run with whatever else you’d like to talk about as we finish up! And if you’ve missed previous discussion questions and posts, you can find the round-up so far over here.
