extolling the virtues of the story’s main villain. She passes the scene of a
victim of crime, continuing to observe as one the hero’s past girlfriends
makes a play for the hero ( in front of the hero’s current significant others ).
He reacts with indifference to his ex’s actions, just as he tries to ignore a
later spat between his current girlfriends. We start to wonder if anything
can awake this man’s callousness when the victim of the first crime bursts
in on him and slams down an article stolen from the hero by his ex. His
two girlfriends finally pull guns from under the table and take up defensive positions ( at least somebody’s pulling for our hero ! ). But what does our hero do ?
He grabs his retrieved property and drives off the villain and her
henchwoman. He decides to intercede on behalf of the victim. ( Why
doesn’t he just kill the villain ? )
Cut away to a scene of the grand opening of a theme park built by the
hero, his two girlfriends, and the former victim. All is well until the boss
villain is spotted sneaking in, bearing a giant battleax. One of the hero’s
girlfriends alerts the hero and the former victim to this fact, and the newly
– formed team gets their defensive plan into action. In an act of personal
courage, the newly – empowered victim stuns and trips the charismatic
boss villain in front of her mesmerized followers. Meanwhile, the hero dispatches his ex ( driving a Blood Flag – bearing bulldozer ) with carefully prepared defenses. The boss villain is suddenly seen as a double failure, despite her hype. In the turning point of the novel, the crowd turns against the boss villain. Was this part of the hero’s plan to save the victim from his
self – destructive tendencies ?
The novel concludes with the band of friends enjoying supper at the theme park’s restaurant. One of them wonders about the origins of what they’re eating. ( Think about the nature of all the characters in the novel. It’s grimly funny.) Finally, the victim asks the hero why didn’t he just kill the villain ? The hero passes the article stolen from him to the victim with the words “ Pass it on “. Finally, we have the answer. The price of the victim’s Liberty was the showdown with the boss villain. Without that confrontation, the victim would carry his victimhood with him forever. Now, the former victim has the chance to be a hero to some other victim
later on, breaking the cycle of victimhood and starting a new, better cycle.
