An absolutely innovative neo-comtemporary style
I remember not being completely enthralled with the book, yet, something in the style and the concept of the book forbade me to put it down. Schickler does a number of interesting things. One of which is that although the stories intentionally have no real continuity, they are very cleverly laced together with brief references. The second element to Schickler's unique style is that in the book, there are no pure protagonists and antagonists, but as it is more often seen in reality everyone has qualities of both hero and villian; predator and prey. These, combined with microscopic detail and 'Lady or the Tiger' styled endings, make the book an excellent work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
