Discussion questions and my answers for Chapters 1-6
1 - Waterfall opens with the introduction of Gabi, she's depressed, a little angry and is dealing with feelings of loneliness. Are you connecting with her this soon in the novel? Do you see things you like or dislike?
It's hard for me to remember how I felt about Gabi when I first read 'Waterfall' (I've now read all three books), but I think I already liked her character and I feel like we are similar in many aspects.
2 - Gabi gets to time travel back to 14th Century Italy- The Dark Ages in its prime. Is there any time in history that fascinates you and would you travel back if you could?
I don't think I would want to travel back in time - even if I could - to ANY time in history, but I find 1900's, Medieval time, and Henry VIII's story interesting.
I think it's a mix. Somewhat gentlemanly, but also chauvinistic.
4 - When Gabi becomes a part of this era, the people are immediately intrigued but suspicious of her. Many judge her by her difference. Do you think this is fair? Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like an outsider or that others were misjudging you?
I don't think it's fair to be judged on differences and I think most people feel like an outsider at some point in their lives.
5 - What do you think the coolest thing would be about living in the Dark Ages? What would be the worst?
I think the coolest thing would be...hmmm that's tough, but I'll say the beautiful dresses and castles. The worst thing would be to not have plumbing and electricity.
