SUMMARY Boonville

BoonvilleOciation are not happy to see a new face especially a handsome outsiderJohn and Sarah are two young people actively searching for self and community in a small town of misfits rednecks and counter culture burnouts Boonville is the darkly comic tale of how they try to reassemble the facts of heredity sexuality personal expression love death the possibility of an existence without God and what happens whey they choose to make art from their lives. This book left me feeling unsatisfied and slightly uncomfortable which is not something I am entirely opposed to The storyline was interesting enough but there was some underlying misogyny in the text that bothered me I normally don't have much issue with books that are a little misogynistic but something about it in this book made me a little fidgety I was also offended by the representation of lesbians in the story The author maybe intentionally wrote in a lot of male anxiety about lesbianism specifically women leaving a man for another woman He tried to be clever and witty about it but it came off homophobic and misogynistic in a not so subtle way which pretty much ruined the fairly enjoyable story for me The plot was interesting and the descriptions of the town were humorous enough to give it three stars The ending also left a bit to be desired

I was sucked in by the review blurbs on the back Confederacy of Dunces and Tom Robbins and by the title cause I was in Boonville once and I'd like to go back Unfortunately the author must have paid a steep price for those reviews or he has one hell of an agent It started off ok was a little funny at times but uickly fell into a mess of incredibly boring borderline sexist and homophobic cliches with an afterthought of a plot It's a shame I wanted to like it and it read uickly but I was so distracted by the cartoonish depictions of everyone that I couldn't stand it Of course the hippie mom listens to Janis Joplin and of course the lesbians want to chop your genitals off Mr Anderson And of course the rednecks have cars on blocks and get into fights And of course the hotel has a kindly old barkeep SighAnd the plot the whole book seems to take place over a week Really A week Sigh
