It is time to say goodbye to Primeval and Other Times by Olga Tokarczuk and its stringed instruments. In some strange reader’s synchronicity, the theme of stringed instruments continues in the novel Boomer1 by Daniel Torday. I’m almost done reading Boomer1 because the library likes to dump all my Hold Requests on me at once, so I’m rush-reading. It’s too bad as Boomer1, along with violins, has a black hole emitting “a B-flat fifty two…” Well, you can read it for yourself. What I wanted to add is how Boomer1 takes us to this black hole, and then examines how we see things, while we’re at a black hole, which sucks in everything we see, and emits a B-flat…it is a very good novel.
