Ree faced many changes and challenges in her first year of marriage with the separation and divorce of her parents, marriage, life on the ranch, and pregnancy. How would you have coped with so many changes at once?
Did you feel the third part of the book was rushed compared to Part I and Part II?
So many "bad things" happened on Ree and Marlboro Man's honeymoon. Did you have anything like that happen to you? How did you handle it?
One of my biggest wondering is how Ree's parents feel about how much of the book she spends talking about their impending break-up, and eventual divorce. She then is very blatant about how frustrated and sad she was with her mom. How do you think her parents feel at their portrayal in her book?Another question: If you are married, did your first year of marriage contain many ups and downs as Ree's had? We're just about to finish our first year of marriage, and we've certainly had ups and downs-and I wonder if this is typical for everyone?
Did you like the ending to the book? What more would you have liked to know about Ree and Marlboro Man's relationship?
If you read The Pioneer Woman's blog before reading this book, what have you learned about her? How did the book compare to her typical blog posts? If you didn't read her blog, will you now?
One more thought- not a reading question, but what if we sent Ree some questions? People could submit their questions and Erin and Rachel could choose a few to send. I think she would love that we were discussing her book through our blogs since that is how she expresses herself.
