"House of the Scorpion" Teenage Crisis! | Harkness Discussion #3

As we continue to read the House of the Scorpion, numerous new things have come up. The characters are getting more round and detailed. There are even more problems. The main character, Matt is a clone of a drug lord. People don't like him much and he's constantly shunned. We discussed our thoughts on the first 150 pages. 
The best part of this discussion occurred from 4-5 minutes. This is because we're talking about human nature. Human nature and clones, comparing and contrasting Matt and the drug lord, El Patron.

This group, you'll notice is very even, as the chart shows. Everyone talked an even amount so we didn't have much of a problem supporting quieter people.

It is very even, despite the more talkative people. Often, they held back a second in order to let someone else talk and give their thoughts.
This is a pretty successful strategy but you'll notice, there are still parts with people interrupting each other. To solve this problem, we need to take turns. Perhaps, we could have something that we pass around the circle to show who is talking at a given point.
