http://www.litlovers.com/reading-guides/13-fiction/8988-flight-behavior-kingsolver?start=3 This set of questions contains spoilers, so I am trying to pick questions that can be answered from the first chapters of the book.
In Flight Behavior we meet the East Tennessee mountain family of Dellarobia Turnbow. What is your impression of the Turnbows so far? Does this impression reinforce or dispute your image of the people of the mountains of East Tennessee?
[3. Describe Dellarobia. How is she of this mountain town in Tennessee and how is she different from it? How are she and her family connected to the land and to nature itself? How are they disconnected? How does this shape their viewpoints? How does she describe herself? Do you agree with her self-assessment?]As she climbs the mountain Delarobia sees the mountain "explode with light." "The forrest blazed with its own internal flame." "The flame now appeared to lift from individual treetops in showers of orange sparks, exploding the way a pine log does in a camp fire when it is poked. The sparks spiraled upward in swirls like funnel clouds."
[7. How does Dellarobia react when she first sees the Monarchs? What greater meaning do the butterflies hold for her? How is she like the butterflies? How does finding them transform her life? Were the butterflies a miracle?]
