Reading a book by a person you know is a loselose proposition Either you like it which is damaging to the ego and corrupting to any similar ideas you may have had or you don t like it and are forced to mouth lies to them at gatherings I ve known Lavie Tidhar for I dunno four or five years now uite casually we send each other mean twitter messages and meet for drinks on extremely infreuent occasions I have a short story in his for charity anthology Jews Vs Zombies I do a really severely good impression of him it s just savage ask me at a bar sometime Anyway having never read anything else by the man I still get the sense this is one of his commercial works which is to say that it is resolutely noncommercial The plot itself is relatively simple a bit of John LeCarre a pinch of Dashiell Hammet anyone who has read this and my own Low Town trilogy please take note that the Old Man s appearance in both is an independent act of appropriation on each of our parts but mostly just straight up WWII era Marvel Comics Captain America knocking out Hitler that sort of thing But the style is if not Finnegan s Wake dificult seemingly than most of what you will see in genre fiction there are no uotation marks for instance and the story breaks with some freuency between descriptions of past events and characters commenting on these events in the present I say seemingly because in fact the style is all cleverly slanted so as to provide the narrative a ferocious momentum with expository information peppered in between the action I really devoured this thing over the course of a short bus ride The point being I m glad I didn t have any ideas for writing something about superheroes because I d probably have to chuck them Good on you Lavie

The Violent Century Read & download Û eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Introduction by Cory DoctorowA bold experiment has mutated a small fraction of humanity Nations race to harness the gifted putting them to increasingly dark ends At the dawn of global war flashy American superheroes suare off against sinister Germans. I picked up this superhero novel in the hopes that it would be like a book version of the Watchmen movie Unfortunately it never played out like that The Watchman movie had an interesting and captivating narrator in the form of Rorschach and a whole bunch of interesting secondary characters The problem with The Violent Century was simply that it lacked anything even remotely engaging or captivating The story was sloooooow the writing distant and the characters completely bland The basic premise was pretty interesting Superhumans Fog and Oblivion worked as agents for the secretive Retirement Bureau A superhuman defence force for the UK They protected the UK for years until an incident at the end of the Second World War split the pairing The story picks up in the modern day with both guys having not aged a day in the last 70 years as Fog is recalled to the Retirement Bureau after an attempt to retire As we wait to learn his latest mission we get flashbacks to his past His childhood how he gained his powers how he was conscripted to the RB how he met Oblivion and the work he did for the RB It should have been awesome but the story was told in a way that made it all incredibly boring I made it to the 33% mark before deciding to move on to interesting reads This was one of two Lavie Tidhar books on my to read list but after failing to gel with the authors writing I doubt I ll bother trying the other Rating 2 stars Audio Note Jonathan Keeble gave an acceptable performance
