She loves him passionately, sexually and unquestioningly. And yet he is still dissatisfied with her? And, just what is she up to in that room of hers? The ending is wonderful. Specifically, the lion is getting too old to be a threat. I was confused by who exactly some of the characters were supposed to be, I think Coover either expected more from me or wrote in a cryptic kind of abstract way but for the most part the allegory worked well.
By the end, I was fully on board and felt that he dealt with the premise very well. It was just way too long. The fun of the story is that you are supposed to shuffle the cards and have the story tell itself in a different way each time. It was a neat little gimmick.
But the story itself is not all that compelling. Each card details the inquisition of a different suspect. A neat trick but little else. So, overall this book was a chore. Even the ones I did like were long and not always easy to finish in one sitting.
Henry Waugh, Prop. Having said all that, the artwork in the book is beautiful. Your comments on Coover are concise and honest and sound like the kind of thing I would say; I have trouble reading mroe than a handful of pages of anything by Coover. Charmed by the first two pages, tired by five and six. Comments RSS. You are commenting using your WordPress.
