Tourists A Novel

The 1993 American Book Award winning author of The Red Magician presents another spellbinding tale In a. This book read like a rough draft one dimensional characters with inconsistent behavior unfinished or irrelevant diversions from the main story awkward canned dialogue a misguided premiseFirst of all the characters are unlikeable and in some cases superfluous They are so vaguely outlined and the personality traits ascribed to them so loosely adhered to that it is difficult to form a firm picture of them Additionally they mostly seem inept and emotionless For example the father a researcher of or an archeologist we aren t sure because sometimes he is studying texts and sometimes he is protesting that his days of looking for ancient artifacts have passed visits a country that he has failed to find information about including details even the most hapless tourists seek whether an embassy exists what the religious and other cultural norms are if it s safe for his family etc The university he is visiting seems to comprise a solitary academic who is sinister dismissive kind and determined at turns Further when both daughters are in trouble the parents are utterly unconcerned rather they voice their concerns but their passivity make those concerns sound hollow Most of the characters are cartoonishly portrayed and not differentiated in their speech or their reactions to stimuli The premise of the story is hard to swallow The title of the book is Tourists the visiting family are foreigners to the country where the story takes place but they aren t tourists Painfully they aren t even portrayed as inept tourist like personalities who blunder into another culture stepping on toes and making a nuisance of themselves More generally they are inept at life taking for granted what reuires a great stretch of the imagination to believe For example during political crises they are concerned about getting out of the country than they are reuniting their family and they take as gospel what a waitress at a McDonald s tells them about the situation They do a lot of sitting around waiting for events to happen In the end it s difficult to care about the characters or their uest While some ideas in the book were intriguing they reuired development to feel satisfying
