THE DEEP ONES: "After Moreau" by Jeffrey Ford em The Weird Tradition (Abril 2022)
Psychics are Exiled to Orange Planet em Name that Book (Julho 2013)

Críticas

Story: 7 / 10
Characters: 7
Setting: 7
Prose: 8

An absolutely intriguing story about a man trying to fulfill the ridiculous request of a wealthy performer. The book keeps building with a clever story-within-a-story and a spiralling plot structure. The ending doesn't quite satisfy, The Potrait of Mrs. Charbuque is still a worthy read. Nothing in comparison to Well-Built City Trilogy though :)

Terrible that the end of the trilogy has to be so poor. Luckily, all the books existed largely independent of one another, so the impact is minimal. The problem was that the prose seemed to have changed. Where before the book used the voice of Cley, now Misrix was writing. His character is well read enough to have been clear, but Ford was probably unable to use the different style.
In addition, there was a lot of wasted white space on each page. The whole thing was off, taking way too long to start the interesting part of the book. Nevertheless, besides the boring adventure, the high-level plot seemed reasonable. Will still read Ford: 2/3 isn't bad.… (mais)

Truly a remarkable book. The mnemonic world introduced in the first book is fully explored here. Sort of a bit metaphysical and drug-induced, but with a clear direction.

Another recommendation, but this one I really liked. It might not have been so much recommended as a date of mine was reading it and the title really appealed to me. Luckily, the prose was fun and diegesis compelling. Only con was that all the elements of the book seemed similar to others I had run into before, though not directly stolen like some children books do. For example, the main Physiognomist was clearly a Dickens' villain. The book's cover compares it to The Penal Colony and 1984.
Will definitely read the rest of the trilogy.… (mais)
