Questions about Blood Red Road

Posted on Updated on

This week we have been spending a great deal of time discussing questioning. We know that asking “Thick” questions give us better insight and force us to better understand what we are reading. These questions have answers, but they must be inferred, and they take us beyond the literal text.

This week I want you to ask those “thick” questions you have about Blood Red Road. Not only are you to ask questions, but I want you to read the questions of others, and give your thinking or answer. This week is as much about asking questions as about dialogue and responding to your classmates.

      Hi Chaslee, I think so because when the heart stone is hot thats its hearts desire. So probably.

        micheala:0!!!!! I think that as well because when Jack gets near Sabba her heart stone gets warmer which means that Jack may be her hearts desire, but we don’t quite know if the heart stone is telling the truth.

      I think Jack is in “love” with Saba, not Saba is in “love” with Jack.

    why is Emie acting different?
    how old is Ike?
    how old is Jack?

      November 3, 2011 at 8:32 am

      Hey Rose, Maybe Emmy is acting different because she is in a diffrent inviorment then used to.Or maybe it could be that she is not feeling so good with the changes around her.

      Oscar said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

      I think that jack is 20 years old and I think that ike is 30 years old Rose??

        Caitlin said:
        May 2, 2014 at 7:15 pm

        Jack prob won’t be 20, when he said to Molly that Saba was 18 he said she too young! If he’s 20 that’s only 2 years difference so it doesn’t matter. And Molly is 29 and her an jack had a kid together so he must be around 25ish at the youngest, Saba and Jack at least have a big age difference for sure, that’s why it’s hard for him to ‘love her’

    Adam said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:21 am

    In the book Blood Red Road
    I am wondering why Ike is so important?
    And why Jack wanted him to come so much?
    Also why is Jack following Sabba does Jack maybe like Sabba?

      austin said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:24 am

      Adam! jack probably wanted ike to go becuase ike knows something about freedom feelds

        Cody said:
        November 3, 2011 at 8:51 am

        @austin I agree with you about that. I think he knows something about the chaal.

      Thomas said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:45 am

      Jack is probaly working for sombody, and the person Jack is working for probaly wants some information of Sabas family.

        November 3, 2011 at 8:54 am

        I think that to Thomas?

    Nadia said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:21 am

    I still wonder what jack is up to?! i think he is bad. I know this because in the book saba looked into jacks eyes and they were as black as stone, and ike said to saba “dont tell jack that im going to move somewhere with out him with another girl, because he will ruin it all” or he said somthing like that. but thats is why i think jack is bad.

      Aleia! :) said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

      Cody said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:59 am

      Nadia Wasen’t Ike playing a joke on Sabba when he said all that stuff?

    Raja said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:22 am

    I think ike is just going because he likes Saba

      taylor said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:26 am

      Hi Nadia, I think Jack is trying to get close to Saba.Jack is bad since is steels and is invoveld with the actions of hope town.

      Rose said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:37 am

      I think so too Raja, Ike probably likes Saba. just add l to his name like and put saba at the end like saba

      Zachery said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:44 am

      I think that to.

        Damien said:
        November 3, 2011 at 8:54 am

        zach gemma taylor and raja i agree with you all because if jack didn’t like saba i don’t think jack would help saba find her brother lugh

    taylor said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:22 am

    Is Ike just going because he likes Saba or is he just going because he knows something?

      micheala:0!!!!! said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:30 am

      I think that Ike knows somthing about freedom feilds and he knows what is going on with Saba and Jack?!.

      austin said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:31 am

      Taylor ike is going beacuase the rule of three. Jack saved ike three times so ike has to go.

    Adam said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Chaslee I got the same question

    leo said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Why does Saba care the after they go to Freedom Feilds that Jack and Ike are going to leave her and go somewhere else?

    maria said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:24 am

    Does Jack and Ash like each other?

      Yolanda sinoway said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:49 am

      I agree with you because ash will do any thing with jack so agree with you.

    micheala:0!!!!! said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:25 am

    Why does Jack care about Saba so much?Because it seems that Jack is sometimes not nice to Saba and sometimes he is?

    Nadia said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:25 am

    P.s hey Chaslee i think saba is in love with jack because everytime jack comes near her the heart stone turns hot, dont you remember? the heartstone turnes hot when the person is near their hearts desire. And p.s hey rose emmie is 9 years old.

      Rose said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:30 am

      Hey Nadia, I actually asked why is Emmie acting different?

    Jessy! said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:26 am

    Here are some of my questions that accour when I read Blood Red Road.For starters, What will happen to Saba and Jack when they find Lough? Will Saba,Emmy, and Lough end up staying with the Free Hawks? Will they give up and go back to Mercys?

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:30 am

      An interesting question Jessica. There are 2 more novels to follow. So does that mean they won’t find Lugh or will they and then the other books are about Saba and Jack???

    Hunter Russell said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:29 am

    Dear taylor,
    I dont think that Ike would leave beacuse he likes Saba. Since Jack and Ike both like Saba they maybe fight later in the book beacuse they want to date Saba.

      austin said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:34 am

      hunter that has nothing to do with taylors guestion!

      micheala:0!!!!! said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:36 am

      Dear hunter i think that Ike and Jack do like Saba and maybe they will fight in the close to the end.

    Nadia said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:31 am

    Hey Adam! jack doese love saba! i know this because if jack wasnt thier for some reson why would he want to hang out with saba? she is stuborn and picky!!! and also he keeps on kissing her so he likes her!!

    Shaynah said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:33 am

    My first question for “Blood red road” is if you think Jack is good.Jack is the person that wanted to
    take Saba the main character to freedom fields so she could find her brother Lugh.If you’re
    wondering, that’s how you spell “Lou” in Blood red road. But anyways, do you think Jack is good
    or bad?By the way, there’s a guy called “Ike” that’s Jack’s friend. And since Ike is Jack’s friend,
    I was wondering if Ike is good or evil too. What do you think? I’m just asking this because it was
    kind of weird when Jack was begging Saba if he could take her to freedom fields and then
    turned up at Ike’s home. Even though Ike is so far very nice, I’m still wondering about Ike and Jack.

      markus said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:54 am

      Hi. Shaynah I think that too

    chaslee said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:35 am

    You’re right Nadia every time jack gets closer the heartstone get hotter!

    Nadia said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:37 am

    DEar Shaynah I think jack is bad because he is also a stealer and really slippery!!! I wonder when they get Lugh if Lugh is going to like Jack???

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:44 am

      I doubt it! Lugh would not be fond of Jack.

    chaslee said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:38 am

    i think your right maria

    Hunter Russell said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:38 am

    dear Austin,

    the second part of my post is a question.

    Cody said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:47 am

    Why would the author name the city hopetown? Because from what I have seen it is more of a run down city with the some of the worse scum ever.

      Gemma said:
      November 3, 2011 at 9:04 am

      Good point, Cody. It didn’t seem that the former town should have been called Hopetown. I also think that the name Freedom Feilds is a good name for that place either. Why would Moira Young name such places happy things?

        Gemma said:
        November 3, 2011 at 9:07 am

        Sorry, I meant ‘is NOT’ good name.

    Damien said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:47 am

    I was wondering when the tonton was going to come back in the story.

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:48 am

      That is a good question Damien. I’ve been wondering about the Tonton and especially Demalo!

        Aleia! :) said:
        November 3, 2011 at 8:53 am

        Jack may have something he is hiding like hes a son of the tontin 😛

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        November 3, 2011 at 8:57 am

        Son of a Tonton, now that is interesting! Maybe the son of Demalo???

        Aleia! :) said:
        November 3, 2011 at 9:04 am

        maybe that could be very interestining for a ending maybe that could be the clif hanger at the end!!!

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:53 am

      Wonder what???

    Zachery said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:49 am

    Once saba finds lugh is saba still going to let jack come with them or is he going to wonder off

      Thomas said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:58 am

      Zachery. I think Jack is going to come along with them

      Cody said:
      November 3, 2011 at 9:06 am

      Zachery Well Jack said that once they found Lugh that he would hit the road with Ike and the young boy that can’t talk.

    Gemma said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:50 am

    I think that Ike is a traitor and he is not to be trusted. I think this because he and Jack had some ‘mishaps’ in the past and Ike wants to get back at Jack for what he did. I don’t think that Ike really cares that Saba would get hurt in the process, just as long as he can get revenge on Jack.

    Mr. Purdon responded:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:51 am

    I have my own question. Does anyone have an idea how this is going to end?

      Zachery said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:58 am

      Good question mr. purdon i think it is going to end by saba if she finds lugh i thing they are going to mercy and might stay with her for a while because she has food and shelter.

        Kadi-Rose said:
        November 3, 2011 at 9:04 am

        Hey Zack, you forgot capitals… And lots of them.
        Mr. Purdon, I, Saba, Lugh, I, Mercy.*

      Aleia! :) said:
      November 3, 2011 at 8:59 am

      I think she might leave us a clif hanger it might be like the hunger games and you whould have to get the next book to find out what happens next 🙂

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        November 3, 2011 at 9:01 am

        I imagine you are thinking right Aleia, a cliff hanger sounds appropriate here! 🙂

        Raja said:

        Me too
        🙂

      Damien said:
      November 3, 2011 at 9:02 am

      I think the story will end with saba , emmy, jack and ike all finds lugh and they get stuck in freedom fields

    Thomas said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:54 am

    Im wondering if Saba loses Emmi? I thought this because on the cover, Saba looks miserable because ( its Saba because Saba said she had long brown hair ) she lost her entire family. Her mom died when she was nine years old, Lugh is in the tower, and Emmi can be captured and not be givin back to her.

    Dear chaslee you are right every time ”jack” goes closer to saba the heart stone get’s hotter and hotter but I wounder how it is going to happen in the end.What happens to saba does she fall in love with jack ?????

    Katie said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:58 am

    I think that Saba is love with Jack because of the heart stone katie.

    wiliam said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:58 am

    is saba still in the race with the sun because in the book it said that saba and the sun was in because mid summer

      Hey William you forgot a CAPITAL.

        Ok

    Kadi-Rose said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:59 am

    Is Jack really on Saba’s side? Does he truly want to help her? It confuses me how, at one point, he kisses her, the next he’s playing some silly prank. I mean, if you really like someone, wouldn’t you show it in a more affectionate way? Then again, she did push into a puddle of mud so I can see why he wouldn’t want to show anything. I don’t know, their whole relationship confuses me.

    shamael said:
    November 3, 2011 at 8:59 am

    I think Jack is still bad and he wants to meet Ike because if any thing happens to Saba Jack will portent that he did not do any thing and he will say Ike planed for that.

    Katie said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:00 am

    Hi Shayanah I think that tokatie

    markus said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:01 am

    I think jack isn`t who he says he his.

      Bryson said:

      Me too Markus.

    Katie said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Hi Nadia I think you might be right and I agree with you . KATIE

    Yolanda sinoway said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:04 am

    I think in the end that saba will find her brother then they go back to Freedom fields but i wounder if jack will come back for her so they can be together

    shamael said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:07 am

    i think Saba will not find Lugh and the story will end with Saba, Jack and the Tonton.

    Aleia! :) said:

    I love this book so much that i might buy evey single book ❤

    Oscar said:
    November 3, 2011 at 9:08 am

    I think that saba likes jack because the heart stone gets hot when she’s with him and because I think saba liked when jack kissd her.

    aleia!! :) said:
    November 25, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    I love the part when saba kissed jack that was so romantic. and it was funny when jack said that her timing was good. now thats so romantic. haha. this book is very good i will have to read all of the books

    bailey said:
    January 26, 2012 at 9:54 am

    what do you think is going on with saba and Demalo like the part where she feels as if hes reaching in to her soul ( cant remember the whole sentence) and when she first met him she wasnt wearing her heart stone so something could end up going on with them two plus at the end he doesnt listen to the king and lets her go and goes off

    bailey said:
    January 26, 2012 at 10:06 am

    also i read and interview where a they said they was curious of demalo’s character and moria young said that we should be and that hes going to have a greater part in the next book
