    Welcome to week on of Lord Fouls Bane, the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.



    Our goal this week is to read to Chapter Eight

    As you read here are some questions to ponder.

    What type do you think Thomas is?

    Do you find Thomas likable?

    What was the overall feeling of the first eight chapters?



    (my OP disappeared when I went to add the info about chapter eight instead of 100 pages....So if I missed one of my original questions, or something isnt there please let me know!)

    Hows everyone doing? To reach our goal of 100 pages a week you only need to read 14.20 pages a day...(that is if your copy has 480 pages like mine...)


    Adding another question as it was posed on here a while ago.

    How would you cope with loosing your sense of Touch?

    Good questions, Enty!

    Thomas is such a deep character...I think I'll have to read a bit more to discover his type, but I think he's an ExFJ so far. Oh, as to the 100 pages thing...maybe we should read to the closest chapter nearest to 100+ pages?

    I can honestly say that Thomas is a deep character, but not necessarily a likeable one. I feel for him and his condition, but he's chosen anger to deal with it, and that's not healthy either.

    I am going to have to do a little bit of catch up on this one. I meant to check it out yesterday when NAI mentioned it to me, but I fell asleep early. (sidenote, I slept pretty well, woot woot) Anyway, I agree with Arby in the fact that perhaps we should read to a particular chapter, only because as you stated Enty, everyone's copy may have a different amount of pages. :)

    Okay, Im super excited about this. I always wanted to be in a book club.:mhula: I'm going to get my copy now. :D

    Okay.. so I was doing a little research. <------- Such a geek, and I found this so I thought I would post it. Here is the link, and the text. Interesting I thought.

    Interesting stuff Dneecey!! I have noticed a great deal of typos myself..Oh well. Enjoying it so far!

    I agree with Arby on the nearest chapter. Chapter Eight for me...Does that work?

    So far I have found Thomas to be a misunderstood man, who has resorted to anger to deal with it. I find myself feeling very bad for the guy...and I kinda hated his wife for a while...but I understood eventually. I too see him as an ExFx type...I am not sure which...I find that his anger is rooted more in his forced exclusion from society as he needs the comfort of people to feel alive.

    More to come as I read on.

    Tell you what, though, reading really good fiction makes me want to write more. Bad published fiction just depresses me.
