  2. What is the main premise of the book? What conflicts would you expect?
  3. Who seems to be the intended audience? How do you know?
  4. What kind of tone does the author use? (Serious? Depressing? Funny? Mocking? Come up with your own description, or maybe choose from this list.) How is that tone created?
  5. What attitude does the author seem to take toward the notion of “truth”?
