This post is currently a placeholder for the discussion questions, which will be posted May 7th! However, feel free to post your thoughts anyway if you finish before then - just remember to check back right here for the questions in case you wanna discuss those also!! I am mainly making this post now instead of later to remind everyone that the club is starting! Also, if you want to chat while you read, come join us in the FTB discord channel, The Brakebills Library, which is dedicated to book club related discussion!
As stated in the schedule post, weeks 1 and 2 will take place from May 1st to May 14th! We will be reading chapters 1-7, aka chapters Brooklyn - The Beast because this book doesn't have chapter numbers. This is pages 3 - 116 (in paperback format, it may be slightly different on the ebooks depending on your ereader settings).
Thank you for participating! I'm really excited to see everyone's thoughts and reactions!
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. What was your favorite part so far? Character? Quote? 2. If this is your second(+) read through, have you spotted any foreshadowing? 3. How do you feel about the book compared to the show?
Erik Johnson: It's ASCII Code. In the books, the Free Traders - especially the House At Murs people - would give each other messages and puzzles and stuff using this style of coding. What I wrote says: "Happy New Year Free Traders!" Sorry to confuse anyone.

Ibiza Asylum: And there's the end to another great season. Thanks to anyone who may have tweeted with me or live tweeted the show in general. Always fun hearing what you all have to say.
