Oh, I just bought this the other day, how grand! And Demon Theory is at my library though I admit the crazy writing made a wuss out of me and I re-shelved it. I'm hoping the discussion of it here will persuade me to check it out.

The book is on my shelves. No idea when I will get round to reading it - maybe you will make me want to read it very sonn... ;)

I just finished it and am so excited that it was selected! Can't wait for discussion to begin...! It is a truly wonderful novel.

Kevin Holtsberry

It sounds very interesting but I am afraid the 766 pages will make it very hard for me to tackle the book.

I nevertheless look forward to reading the discussion here.

Jeff VanderMeer

Excellent choice! What a great book!

Kevin, you might want to take a look at it despite the daunting page count. It was a breeze to read--very enjoyable. Each part is divided into sections and then subsections, so you could read it for only a few minutes at a time and make progress. It's a great yarn (funny that that's the word that comes to mind...)--brilliant on many levels.

I second Ana María's note on the book's ease of reading (and "yarn" seems a great and appropriate word to use). For me, the first 40 pages or so were the slowest going; I don't mean that as a criticism, the section is just a little disorienting (I think purposefully so). After that first section, though, the book rockets off.

Seven Loves is a world. A world with its own laws of time, but like ours. The words taking me into this world are transparent, I mean they do not call attention to the writer, but just take me there. I think that Valerie Trueblood has done that rare, extraordinary thing of creating a world so real that plot, chronology, even perfectly lush/spare poetic prose become forgotten abstractions. We're simply in it - May's life, but more - ours. Her, and our, experience both accumulcates and diminishes. Everything matters.
