A Litte Life [Chapter 3-4]
Oh man this book keeps getting better. After exploring more about the other boys in the book we finally get to know more about Jude.

And boy is he an interesting person.

He doesn’t talk about what happened in his past, but we are getting more and more clues. On top of that we FEEL a lot of what he’s experiencing. Every wince, pain, or struggle (even though we don’t know the struggle).
And what about the brothers? Like Catholic brothers?
And what about the scars?
And And what about Montana? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!

Ok, so this isn’t so much a specific question. Just let me know what you feel and what you think about Jude. What do you think happened to him? Do you like Jude? Why?

Also: ok, last theory. Anyone notice the cover image and think of a certain character?! thoughts?!
you all are the best :) so excited to talk this week.

So true @ButterflyBlu! It’s funny because even when I spend time with my guy friends, they tell me things like, “yeah me and my guy friends don’t share much.” I guess it’s more of a feminine thing to share past experiences and emotional stuff. I think that’s especially true for guys in college....but I would think they would grow out of it as they got older. who knows! maybe as these boys get older we’ll see them open up!
I was so impressed with the vividness of Jude's pain...the author did an incredible job of helping you to understand a bit of what his life is like without really telling you what happened to cause it. His opinions of himself absolutely break my heart.
Agreed! @Ercurrent I've never been through that sort've pain and I know because of how the author describes it! I feel so bad for Jude, especially since he blames himself for the pain. And anyone on the outside (mostly us reading the book) do NOT think he deserves that pain in his life!
