The Boy with the Missing Thumb is a very surreal story that drags us on a horrific journey of toxic self-marginalisation from the perspective of the main protagonist, Gregory.

As with the Reflections Framework I have shared previously, these notes have been created with the intention of helping you to reflect personally. Therefore, you will find that it comes with more questions that you have to ponder over than there are annotations and answers.

How, then, should you use these notes to help you in your study of the text?
Allow them to guide your thoughts as you settle yourself into a position of reflection.
Be as honest as you can with yourself, and also as elaborate as possible. Your goal should be to fully understand your opinions and beliefs – yourself, in essence – rather than to give the shortest answer possible to each question.

Stay safe and good luck!

I’m not too proud to accept a show of appreciation.

(If you can’t afford it, it’s really not an issue. The notes will remain free to download. :D)
