This summer I had the opportunity to read Jester’s Dance by Bruce Walker. This book provided an entertaining and insightful look into the competitive world of creative advertising. The plot had many elements and diverse themes to keep my interest in seeing the conflicts and relationships come to resolution.
The characters were well-developed and demanded an investment of thought to determine what their motives and actions were to have on the plot. I was rewarded with a much better understanding of an essentially invisible aspect of a fast paced and lucrative industry.
The author has also incorporated the world of weight loss management into a parallel plot. It explores societies’ hope that the physical condition of obesity can be modified by a pill. It facilitates introspective thought into the “no time wasted” perfect solution to a problem that is pervasive throughout the population. It explores the use of medication and subtly urges you to consider what risks would you accept in order for you to have this aspect of your life managed.
Overall I found this book a very entertaining read, using complex characters with relevant contemporary material.
