We Are Water

by Wally Lamb.  My favourite author does not disappoint in this engaging and detailed look at how changes can hurt and then bring a family together.  Well worth a second read!

The Veldt

1. What aspects of family life do the “Happylife Home” and the nursery satirize?

2. In what ways has the house infantilized the Hadleys?  How is this depicted as dangerous?

3. This is a classic Gothic horror story (‘sick’ or haunted houses and/or families), what clues do we have that something ‘bad’ is going to happen?
