All these things Alanna knew from her father's books and maps, but the reality took her breath away as a paragraph written in a book never could.
In this thread we’ll be discussing the first two chapters of Alanna: The First Adventure.
As with previous books, we’ll be providing a few discussion points to spark off your thinking but please feel free to ignore them-we want to hear what you have to say (no matter how small or obvious you think it is).
We meet many interesting characters in the opening chapters and also find out a lot about life as a royal page. What do you think to the people and places we’ve encountered so far? Which space do you think is more dangerous for Alanna: the palace or the city beyond its walls?
Please remember to be considerate to other readers and use spoiler tags when discussing details of the plot!
