13 book club questions for Normal People by Sally Rooney

Reading and interpreting your books has never been easier with Inkish Kingdoms book club questions!

Aren’t you tired of trying to have conversations with people that don’t understand the book you read? Or that they see things that do not make sense with the novel you read?

Yes, that happens! Not everybody can read a book deeply and critically, so why don’t you drive the conversation to that? Avoid asking what they liked about the book or what they didn’t like. Avoid hollow answers like “the writing style was amazing”… what does that add to the plot or the overall experience? Well, it does, but the book goes beyond that!

Ask real and profound questions about your favorite novels! Try these questions! Visit our blogs on how to pick incredible book club books, how to run your book club, and check the rest of our posts with answers!
