Need to make a literary sub category based on sexual orientationThe novel is set in an alternate universe which technically makes the book science fiction but it reads like SF only in the Orwellian sense The author would have been wiser to choose like Orwell a near future milieu As it stands the Earth like setting plays such a minor role in the novel that it is essentially irrelevant What matters is that one despised nation among all the others allows slaverySome people become slaves in much the same way as debtors once landed in prison in Victorian England Fail to pay and ou forfeit our freedom Others are sold into slavery by those who have the right to make that decision much like the African chiefs who once sold unpopular or unwanted tribe members to passing Arab slavers Illegal and controversial raids on neighbouring countries garner a few The novel explores the fate of Cor one such captured slave His name is actually much longer but slaves may not have impressive sounding identifiersAs someone entitled to a normal life in his own land Cor bitterly resents his status as a slave He resists The highly ritualized system reuires that like Winston Smith in 1984 he be made compliant A large portion of the novel deals with Cor s prolonged and painful indoctrination process which does resemble the horrors of with Cor s prolonged and painful indoctrination process which does resemble the horrors of Cor has no way to escape so in some way he must come to terms with his situation How he does this is uite startling et makes perfect sense within the logic of his hopeless position His owner is not especially keen on slavery but an hereditary estate and his role as an elected official reuire him to take part in the unsavoury system The complex relationship between Cor and his master makes up the other major aspect of the novelMcClellan s approach to the searing moral issues implicit in slavery is both insightful and horrific Cor s absolute vulnerability to exploitation of every kind including the sexual is appalling and illustrated with some brutal emotionally wrenching scenes Yet this is not a novel of sadomasochism nor is it homosexual erotica We are looking at issues faced today by anyone victimized by human trafficking Here lies some of the novel s relevance as a literary work *IT MANAGES TO ILLUMINATE THE OLD *manages to illuminate the old evils of plantation slavery in the American South and elsewhere in the New World and the new evils of human trafficking in the present day At the same time it explores the kinds of intricate caring relationships that can emerge even under such inauspicious circumstancesIf The National Parks you relish a thought provoking read that will openour eyes to aspects of life ou may not be familiar with Hidden Boundaries is highly recommended An interesting story that delves into the mindset of a slave as well as the dynamic between a slave and master who both struggle with their individual rolesTold through Cor s point of view the story details his kidnapping from his homeland his new life as a slave and his struggles from defiance to acceptance of his servitude and ultimately love for his master A thoughtful book that often made me ache for the charactersDefinitely recommended. Fiant man also spoke to his own painful past Cor can’t understand his generous but strangely contradictory master Alcot can’t find a way to help Cor adapt to the loss of his freedom Bound together by law and custom they must work through the pain that each of them brings to the othe. .
