Two Month Review #7.7: Radiant Terminus (Chapters 20-26)
Chad and Brian go it alone through Kronauer’s “night of amok” as he attempt to murder Solovyei for his myriad crimes. Then they enter into part four of the book, “Taiga,” which is a collection of “narracts” set some seven hundred (or a thousand?) years in the future. Hannko is recreating the feminist post-exotic texts from before, along with her dad’s crazy ramblings; Kronauer is living in oil, suffering the thousand-plus year punishment Solovyei promised him. Plus, Chad had another Volodine inspired dream . . . as did Brian!
