I began this book a few weeks back but haven’t had the time to truly delve into it. That being said I am excited to get into The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly! What little I have read (Just began chapter 1) has more than captured my imagination. Karen writes in that all important way which allows the reader to become fully engrossed in her characters, almost becoming them. Thus I too felt the contrary mix of excitement and revulsion as the prisoner in The Lizard Cage hunts the lizards as a way to substitute his all to often missed meals. In that moment with her words I became a Buddhist and a prisoner forced by circumstances to make a choice that goes against my belief system and perhaps more importantly, the strong beliefs of my mother.
I cannot wait to see where Karen Connelly takes me next in this book!
