(view spoiler)[Will somebody PLEASE tell me what is good about this book. I often miss things but right now I think it is a dreadful waste of time, slightly above watching paint dry. My new self looks for POSITIVE stuff in others' writings but I need help here. (hide spoiler)]
Joseph Delos It's a fictional writing and usually these have a surface story but a "bigger picture" theme such as the meanings of cruelty. Especially the recurring "Pock, smash" has a deeper meaning. It's all up for analysis.
