I remember now. The other idea I had was about books that I just want to talk about because I felt as if I missed something; that I didn't get the author's point.

I recently read a science-fiction book called The Great Wheel by Ian R. MacLeod. I really like his writing, and I liked the setting and the characters, but at the end of it I felt as if I'd like to talk to others who had read the story in order to really understand it. I assume I am not the only one who occasionally hits a book that feels like something that needs to be talked about. (Incidentally, the novella that originally inspired my "co-written" idea also falls under this heading.) So all I need is a way to phrase it. Some initial ideas for theme phrases include...


Help me understand: I didn't get it

Puzzlers: Help me understand


Better options would be welcomed.
