Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

East of the Sun, Middle Chapters: Tor

Victoria has been dreaming of her escape to India--and imagining a life full of freedom and parties and men. How is the reality of it stacking up for her?

 

What is Tor's relationship with Ci Ci like? Do you see any similarities between Ci CI and Tor's mother?

 

Why does Tor fall for Ollie?

 

How does Tor see herself? How do her (genuine) friends see her?

Re: East of the Sun, Middle Chapters: Tor

Tor seems that she will do anything to stay in India away from her mother.  I am afraid she is going to make some bad choices.

 

CiCi is becoming like Tor's mother, critical of her.

 

Tor seems like a great person to have as a friend.

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

Re: East of the Sun, Middle Chapters: Tor

I saw Tor as a rudderless ship when she arrived in India, Ci had the sort of superficial sophistication that young girls are often, briefly, beguiled by. Ollie is the classic bad boy, don't you think? I'm not sure I would have resisted him at 'Tor's age.

Re: East of the Sun, Middle Chapters: Tor

I would have Tor as a friend , exasperating sometimes, of course, but real and funny and loyal.
