What is it like?
Is it a good novel?

'Feeling' on the novel is not correct. This verb does not fit your intention. You could feel the book (for weight, to examine its cover or the quality of the paper, say) and you can express feelings about people, or you might say:
What are your feelings about the main character in the novel?

Hello Puzzle,

Yes, you can say "Really? Do you like it?".

However, saying "Really?" might imply that you're surprised.

An alternative: "Oh, right. Is it any good?"
