Our talks were about strengthening our families in the gospel. I spoke about adventure stories and how much I love reading a good adventure story (like The Lord of the Rings, etc.). I explained that I had begun an adventure 18 years ago when I married Scott. Like all good adventures, we have a quest: Creating a Celestial, eternal family. And we have a great cast of characters: Scott, Me, Key Lime Pie and Kotten Kandy. We have dragons and trials: personal trials and tribulations. But we also have a plan to help us get through: the plan of salvation. I think it went OK.
I can't wait to read the other books in the series. This one kept me guessing right up til the very end. I was so surprised to find out who was behind it all. It was fun.
Honestly, I don't want my daughters reading 1984 until they are a lot older. I don't like the "romantic" part. It is not moral, despite the fact he tries to make it so. But at the same time, I learned a TON from reading this upsetting novel.
