Were I 20 years younger I would have read this and then immediately rushed to grab books on Peirce s semiotics Searle s speech act theory and Wittgenstein s philosophy of language to produce a conference paper titled something like Locution Linguistics and Lexicon Words and Gender Power Dynamics in Max Barry s Fiction But I m not a graduate student any so I can read books for pleasure nowAnd boy did I enjoy this book It s as if Barry is one of the poets from the novel and he has learned the exact combination of words and narrative elements to cause all of my critical defenses to fallThe central premise is that words are not simply signs for communication they are containers of meaning that have a neurological effect on people s brains Gifted and specially trained individuals poets learn to size people up psychologically and then utter the specific words that cause an individual to drop all defenses and become utterly persuadable Great power can be derived from this ability and power corruptsThe story unfolds in a dual narrative fashion one thread follows Wil and Tom as they are chased by an unknown organization bent on destroying Wil free will because of his peculiar immunity to the poets powers The second follows a 16 year old runaway girl named Emily who is recruited and sent to a special school to train to become a poet shades of Harry Potter and Lev Grossman s The Magicians Of course the two threads intertwine and collide and this is handled in a very clever and satisfying wayMy only complaints are minor I would have liked to have learned about the character of Yeats especially his belief in god and love of shoes which may be related in some way I m unclear on The dialogue between Wil and Tom ran on a little at times and got somewhat annoying Finally I think the ending cheated a bit though nothing too egregiousOverall I was uite taken by this book but that may have something to do with my predilection for the underlying premise and themes of linguistic power Nevertheless I highly recommend it especially for the highly verbal among us
