Eddy the Risk Junkie

One of Eddy’s character “flaws” is he takes unnecessary risks. Perhaps he enjoys the resulting adrenaline rush. In Chapter One of Trout Kill, for example, he speeds around a corner and hits a deer. Would he take seriously the warnings on this sign at the state park at Nehalem Bay, Oregon? Many readers say TK is “suspenseful,” and what I think they may mean is they just can’t predict what Eddy’s gonna do.
