characters Limekiller 107 Avram Davidson Ä 7 summary summary Limekiller Collected here for the first time Avram Davidson's six Jack Limekiller stories create a rich and colorful world where the magical and inexplicable coexist with the outboard mot. I just finished reading this book for the third time and I ll read it again It s a collection of six stories concerning the adventures of a sailer in a Central American nation small enough to put your arms around Based on the author s experiences the plots of the stories are fairly humdrum horror But they draw on a well of erudition far beyond what you normally see and the simple stories are elaborately decorated with discursive loops of exposition marvelously rendered sensory details and some of the very best dialect writing ever And the stories are not so much told as presented despite multiple readings there are certain passages that still have me puzzled as to their precise meaning and intent This is not inept writing it is challenging And delightful Davidson has a very eccentric very personal prose style that is consistent across works with different settings intents and genres and it is at its best in this volume Funny frightening and above all else intelligent this is a one of a kind book from a one of a kind writer I was tempted to give it four stars due to the plotting being but a skeleton for the prose but the prose won out

summary Limekiller

characters Limekiller 107 Avram Davidson Ä 7 summary summary Limekiller In the bush and roam along its coast Afloat and ashore Jack Limekiller master of the working sailboat Saccharissa encounters ghosts of the colonial past and monsters far older. I really wanted to like these stories Before I started reading I had visions of exotic jungle exploration and untold mysteries waiting to be brought to life Instead I read rambling incoherent stories that lacked any excitement or wonder The author clearly had a gift for phoneticizing accents so much so that most of the dialogue is incomprehensible The protagonist is also dull and devoid of character It s never really explained why he s in this country and what he wants to achieve he spends about 70% of the time in bars drinking and not much else The detail is excruciatingly boring I like detailed writing as long as it moves the plot along This doesn t there is very little direction or meaning in most of the text and all of the stories are too long by half The fantasy elements are fleeting and tease much promise but fall flat as they are never truly explored Very disappointing
