in this book It felt safe and comfortable in the box despite the severe reduction in peripheral vision it causedThis novel is a mystery Amen: what prayer can mean in a world beyond belief of sorts Partf the mystery is how many box men there really are Or rather how many authentic box men For there is at least No Puedo Perderte one false box man He wears a box that is identical to the real box man and it s set up in a nearly identical manner But why pose as a box man particularly when box men are considered to be the detritusf society Perhaps to win In Every Heartbeat over the affectionf a certain nurse And yet the nurse wants the real box man to ditch his box and is even willing to pay him to do it So her attitude towards boxes as coverings for men remains in uestion Another part The Seraphim Code of the mystery is how doesne identify a true box man What constitutes authenticity in this case At times the real box man interprets the false box man as simply another version Sortemesse of himself Both the false box man coincidentallyr not also a false doctor and the nurse may not truly exist The box man is recording his story the book is a collection La fabbrica di

today eg what ultimately drove him into the box But none La meglio gioventù of this coheres into a stable narrativeThe book includes photographsf at best peripheral relevance accompanied by cryptic captions which enhance the mysterious nature f the text For despite the attempts at rganization in the form Solea of case reports and affidavits what the text engenders most effectively is perpetual disruptions in perception through disorientation As we draw near to an understanding the ground shifts and again we are stumbling in confusion Much like it feels to wander around as Ince did so many

The Woman in the Dunes I like to believe that there was a certain philosophical depth to The Box Man but it clearly evaded me Other than a few spot The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories on

situation By no means trash Just not what I expected This novel messes with your head ReallyAs far as Kobo goes I prefered Woman in the Dunes for pure entertainment but the Box Man goes into uncharted
