So, @dari suggested making a thread where readers can discuss the story Speak by @J.Miley
Have you read it?
What episode are you on?
Does the story realistically portray mental health issues?
Thoughts on Liz?
Thoughts on Wes?
Thoughts on Trip?
Thoughts on Greg?
To start: Episode 1, we are introduced to Liz, Greg, and Wes. It becomes very apparent right away that Liz is not your average freshman college student. She wears long sleeved clothes and doesn’t speak.
We then meet Kim, Liz’s new roommate who seems to have a thing for Greg, Liz’s older brother. Where are Liz’s parents? Although no details are given at the time, it is apparent that Liz and Greg’s parents are dead.
Liz then runs into Wes on the way to get coffee and once realizes that she cannot speak, invites her to coffee with his friend, Hannah… or is she his girlfriend?
I thought the beginning, with Liz’s narrative of explaining why she wore long-sleeved shirts added both mystery and understanding. She obviously just wants to get through life under the radar, but of course a chance meeting changes everything.
What are your thoughts on Speak?
