Hello, my Disney friends, and welcome back!!! We’re here to stay and ready to have a great time discussing all kinds of Disney books! We are working on our list to come, so if you have ideas of books you think would be fun to read and discuss as a group, please feel free to comment on the blog about future titles!
But, for now, we are discussing a wonderful Disney book and work by a great friend of WDW Radio, Ridley Pearson: Kingdom Keepers VI: The Dark Passage. Ridley has been a frequent guest on the show, and will be the guest of honor on the WDW Radio Cruise in November. His newest in the series–which was released last week– about 5 teenagers who appear as holograms in Disney parks is great fun, and better yet–a great book for parents, tweens, and teens to read together!
The premise behind our book club is easy: we will post discussion questions every Thursday. You can join in by answering one or all of them in the comments section. Then, join us every week to see how the conversation develops! We are working on a couple other surprises, too, so stay tuned!
Also, be sure to register (for free!) to be a Kingdom Keeper Insider and help Ridley to write the final book in this series! We’ll discuss some of those questions as well!
And so, without further ado, here are this week’s questions, covering the first four chapters of The Dark Passage. Next week’s questions will cover chapters 5-12 (pages 58-134).
Oh, and no book club would be complete without a fun prize! One person who responds to this week’s questions (by Wednesday April 17) will receive a WDW Radio Mystery ticket!
Discussion Questions–Please post your thoughts in the comments below, and check back often to see how the discussion progresses!
1. In chapter 1, Finn uses his secret password with King Triton. If you could have a Disney character who was available to save you from a sticky situation, who would you want? What would your password be?
2. In chapter 3, Greg Luowski described feeling like “a rat in a maze, looking for a way out.” What do you think this suggests about his role with the Overtakers? Could the Keepers ever trust him (or Finn’s mom) to help after having been influenced by the Overtakers?
3. In chapter 4, Finn thought about his role as a leader: “He knew he had to stay focused on the task at hand. He knew to put the needs of the group first and his own desires last, no matter how frustrating and painful.” Do you agree with his description of the role of a leader? IS Finn the leader of the Keepers?
DO YOU have a question you want to discuss this week? Or how about one for next week’s chapters? I love ideas! Email me at Christy@WDWRadio.com
