Original Prin

Antics. The pace begins with a sharp hook of a first sentence in Randy Boyagoda’s novel titled, Original Prin. “Eight months before he became a suicide bomber, Prin went to the zoo with his family.” With that opener, the antics begin and continue nonstop for another 225 pages, the first installment in what is intended to be a trilogy. Protagonist Prin is a middle aged academic at a failing university and he has been diagnosed with cancer. One minute he is a practicing Catholic, and the next he prepares to become a terrorist. I don’t have a clue where the next installment will lead Prin and the rest of us, but this opener was fun to read and will appeal to those readers who enjoy satire.
