What vision of love is suggested by his metaphor of two snakes devouring each other? The sight of a woman with an open chest and a old man with a hoe, and a dead baby. Leave a Comment I find the way the book is interesting because you learn of John Wade and his wife Kathy. He closes his eyes and pictures a huge mountain crushing him. Why John lost the election, or why the loss has destroyed his life is left unexplained plenty of successful politicians have lost elections, after all.

His childhood is constantly referred to as the advent of his persona, Sorcerer. The third kind of story appears in chapters called "Hypothesis"; it tries to suggest what might have happened to Kathleen Wade in the days after she disappeared. On the battlefield, more soldiers die and the ones left alive begin to lose their hope. There relationship has suffered. Arthur Lux, the sheriff of Lake of the Woods County.

After the war, John entered politics. Instead of a linear narrative, in which action unfolds chronologically, Tim O'Brien has constructed a narrative that simultaneously moves forward and backward in time: forward from John and Kathy's arrival at the cabin; backward into John's childhood, and beyond that to Little Big Horn and the War of Independence. John begins law school and after he passes his bar exam he begins working as an assistant legislative counsel. A collection of memories from across Northwest Minnesota of growing up in the area.
