Let’s chat about The Queen of Hearts.
Between Zadie and Emma, which one do you relate to more (or is it neither)? Why?
Did you feel there was enough context to make the two characters distinct or did you get confused which POV you were reading?
What did you think of Emma’s involvement with Nick? Why do you think she let herself get consumed by it?
Do you think Nick truly cared for Zadie or was it just lust?
How do you feel the book’s title relates to the events in it?
Did the medical jargon help make it feel more authentic or did it get tiresome?
The reader doesn’t get to read the last interaction between Zadie and Nick, what do you think was said between them?
What did you think of the ending? Will Zadie and Emma truly be able to remain close or will this have fractured their relationship forever? What would you do if you were Zadie?
There is the stereotype of people from the south being friendlier and more forgiving than people in other areas. Do you think the novel taking place in two cities in the south has an impact on how the characters act?
