Love, Love, and more Love
One thing I noticed about all the stories that we read last week was that their seemed to be some form of "love" in each tale. It was quite prevalent in It Takes Two, but in the other stories I don't think it was quite as obvious. In The Island, the main character as this infatuation with the "island." She is so determined to save this "island" that this infatuation can be seen as a love for this wondrous creature. In The Pelican Bar, the main character's parents loved her to the point of sending her away to an institution in order to change her life and she loved to dream of The Pelican Bar which helped her through the toughest of times. Finally, in The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, Matilda was willing to change into a vampire so that she could go save her boyfriend and Lydia. There were quite a few more examples in the rest of the stories. I think Spar should go without explanation.
