If you've reached page 100, the past is foreplay. To quit now would be like departing the bed of the girl of your dreams as she was slowly sighing her legs apart. The story is about to begin. The sadhu appears on page 106 and, on page 111, Krishna--the strongest and most interesting of the characters. The planning of the disastrous hunt has begun, and developed at the strange dinner party (131ff.) This is followed by the seduction (160 ff), Kate's guilt, and her decision to join the hunt, which departs on p 186. The first crisis develops on 205, with the maiming of the prey. (The wounder of a carnivore, by law,must kill him--otherwise he becomes a maneater.) On 217-17 comes the first great catastrophe. If you're not hooked then, you may withdraw--leaving the lovely naked girl sprawled prone, her hips thrashing and lunging. She will be, well, disappointed. Faithfully, Bill'. 384 pages.
