It was interesting that both the Kid and the professor's wife had the same thought about the price of exchange for the professors gifts. Is this just a statement on human nature, or is there some darkness the professor we'll see later?


Well I said I wouldn't do anymore predicting but seeing as you asked ( 8) ) I think it is some darkness. I don't trust the Professor anymore.

The prominence of sex related stuff in these chapters, including some nasty aspects like kiddie porn movies, makes me reflect back on the title of the book, Lost Memory of Skin, and wonder about possible meanings .. I had assumed that it refered to 'skin' in the sense of 'identity' but now I'm thinking that it refers more to 'skin' in the sense of 'sex', like the expression 'skin flick' and 'showing a lot of skin' and related sexual connotations of these and other expressions which link skin and sex. Not sure how the 'lost memory' part might fit with this idea though ... and I may be way off base, but we'll see how the story and its theme develop.


Oh I never thought of that. Good thinking on your part Giselle. I've been wondering about the title of the book and why it was chosen.

Well I now see where you guys were coming from with the Prof's eating habits. The guy gets the bad case of the munchies :o Can you imagine? Yea I know there is more to it then that.

I fear that the only reason the Professor is doing this study is to try and figure out what is wrong with himself. Sexually that is.

Remember when Kid was reading the bible and wanted to know if it was written somewhere about what is wrong and what is right? Like what are the rules? Where does it say that you can't have sex with a 14 year old girl. He just didn't know that it was wrong legally or morally. Whereas the Professor does know that it is wrong. You can bet that some of those countries he was going to and watching the shows being performed were with under aged children.

I don't like Professor. He's up to something. If he cared at all about Kid he wouldn't let him be in an area that is frequented by drugs, sex and illigal shananagans.

And now Professor would like to interview the workers.

Is it really all in the name of science? I think not.
