In my review of 2666 I wrote about the effectiveness of ambiguity the power of allowing the reader to infer connections and actively build a personal theory of meaning about a novel The Gold Bug Variations takes a different approach Compare it to Gravity s Rainbow to which it is on the back cover Gravity s Rainbow never spells out its central metaphor it remains elusive and unbounded allowed to permeate the novel in unexpected ways By contrast Powers never misses an opportunity to break down his metaphors to dissect draw together and expound on the connections They are never allowed room to breathe The puzzle is almost delivered in its completed form And yet the novel succeeds brilliantly in part because the puzzle in uestion is so complex and all encompassing it has no definite solution The Gold Bug Variations is driven instead by the author s irresistible enthusiasm and the richness of its themes which intersect biology information science language and music subjects with endless permutations possessing the ability to illuminate all aspects of life from morality to ontology to the common search for a life worth living This is a novel that was written on the precipice of the information age Some of the depictions of computer systems as well as the concerns about the future seem uaint and anachronistic they have now become part of our uotidian reality while others of these concerns seem prescient the difficulty in parsing an overload of information is a troubling reality in the era of fake news Powers writes in such an peculiarly ornate and idiosyncratic style that I almost don t believe he is American There s just something very English about the way he writes His primary characters are very attractive particularly the lead character a librarian and contribute to much of the appeal of the book At times the relationships and actions of the characters test credulity but they are always approached with a genuine earnestness and respect that lends authenticity to the emotions and interactions The exploration of love and change is powerful and poignant This is a difficult novel one that expects the applicant to arrive ualified with a working knowledge of a wide range of subjects A moderate understanding of evolution and cell biology is mandatory Some background in music and computer science is highly recommended There were many references I managed to pick up that I think would be lost on many people and I m sure there were many that were lost on me The Gold Bug Variations can be information dense and heavy handed at times but it is a wonderful book This is science fiction not in the narrow sense but in its truest sense examining the commonalities of humanity our searching nature and our place and purpose in the natural world Who Needs a Prairie?
