THE DEEP ONES: "Buried in the Sky" by John Shirley em The Weird Tradition (Dezembro 2023)

Críticas

(2.75 Stars)

This book was very different from the other John Shirley books/stories that I've read before this. Usually his books are set in strange new worlds but this one was eerily close to our own. I won't just repeat the book description here, but I will say that you can tell the politics of most of the reviewers by how they reviewed it. This book is like a mini-dystopia, set in a community that through a natural disaster finds itself getting what it wished for... complete off-the-grid autonomy and self-rule. It is contemptuous of conspiracy-minded anti-intellectualism and Libertarian sensibilities. a caricatured vision of what would be seen as the "MAGA" crowd of today.

The writing is great, and paced appropriately. I didn't want to stop reading and the narration of the audiobook was on point. Readers of all speculative fiction should enjoy this book. The major characters are compelling and distinct. My only criticism of the book is probably directed on me more than the author... (I have a problem remembering people's names), the final few chapters of the book introduce a lot of minor characters that I had trouble remembering which "side" they were on. I found myself replaying the previous 15 seconds several times to make sure I was keeping things straight in my mind.

I really enjoy John Shirley's cyberpunk-type works, and this was not that, but with that being said, this was still a good book.

This was surprisingly hard for me to stay engrossed in.......odd, considering vintage horror is one of my favorite reads. The characters and storyline were exactly what I usually enjoy reading. Maybe it was just me and I was too preoccupied, but I didn't love this one.

I enjoyed this novel very much. It felt like an episode of Grimm and gave me the urge to rewatch the series.

Yes, there were a few mistakes here and there, but the characters were true to their nature which is portrayed in the tv series.

The story kept me nailed, and I loved how they give more information about the Grimm bloodline.

A reluctant three stars.

Three complaints:
1. Lack of motivation for one dramatic moment ... which was unfortunately the climax

2. One dramatic moment glossed over for no reason

3. Two parts where Shirley seemed as if he lost track of what was happening

But I like the world and the characters and the wackiness of working game mechanics into a coherent story. There's no point in applying too much critical thinking to this one.
