's review
Jul 16, 2007

really liked it
bookshelves: swords
Recommended for: adults, po-mo fans
Read in November, 2005

Do you remember the game "Where's Waldo?" You can play a similar one with this (47 maybe--If I'm remembering correctly) episodic narrative: "Where's the act of consumption?"

Note: many of the vignettes are either sexual or violent, or violently sexual. The protagonist is on a quest to find a stable sense of identity in his (post)modern world. The question then becomes whether he succeeds or not.

Fenixbird SandS Anything at all like The Talisman (by Stephen King)? I only realized Stephen King wrote that novel when I added it to my "reads" here on Goodreads!!

Thank you for your review, C!
