When Patricia Delfine was six years old, a wounded bird led her deep into the forest to the Parliament of Birds, where she met the Great Tree and was asked a question that would determine the course of her life. When Laurence Armstead was in grade school, he cobbled together a wristwatch-sized device that could send its wearer two seconds into the future. When Patricia and Laurence first met in high school, they didn't understand one another at all. But as time went on, they kept bumping into one another's lives. Now they're both grown up, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention into the changing global climate. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Neither Laurence nor Patricia can keep pace with the speed at which things fall apart. But something bigger than either of them, something begun deep in their childhoods, is determined to bring them together. And will.… (mais)

    hairball: All the Birds in the Sky made me think about Postsingular and Hylozoic for some reason--maybe it's the Bay Area thing, but it's also something about the attitude.

(Segunda vez que escribo la review, esta no quedará tan elocuente)
Me ha costado mucho arrancar con esta novela, el principio con los protagonistas de jóvenes se me atascaba mucho y no ha sido hasta la segunda mitad del libro que me ha enganchado. Al final lo he devorado bastante rápido una vez llegados a la chicha. Incluso me ha gustado la fusión de magia y ciencia ficción que hace (una de sus mayores criticas por lo que he leído).
PERO, aunque me han gustado los protagonistas, creo que les falta una capa más de profundidad o construcción, los he encontrado demasiado “estereotipados” dentro de la definición de outcast. Así como sus backgrounds de peques me han parecido hasta exagerados, o al menos no me han ayudado mucho a encontrar el tono de la novela. El estilo de escritura de la autora no ha ayudado a hacerlo interesante con momentos que me chirriaban. Aún así cuando entras en la atmosfera y el mundo se convierte en una buena lectura ligera.

Supongo que lo encasillaría entre un MEH y un GUAY. ( )

This was a fun surprise. The description on the jacket sounded interesting but it sat in my bookcase waiting for an opportune time to read. Then I listened to Anders speak at the National Book Festival and was intrigued by her new book. I purchased that but found "All the Birds in the Sky" waiting to be read first ... so I did.

Just a really fun sci-fi that takes place in a now-ish time period. The main characters are on opposing "sides" in a war to save(?) the planet. Each faction seems more intent on destroying the other faction ... but Patricia and Laurence have been lifelong friends and their relationship complicates their faction's hatred. More than just a "save the world" type book. Also a coming of age story, relationship story, us vs. them story, and more. I really love Anders' writing style and easily get drawn into her world through her descriptions. ( )

A magic tree and a networked artificial intelligence have sex to save humanity, and it's sort of amusing. ( )

I'm not going to finish this book. I started back in February and I've picked it up multiple times since then but just can't seem to get past the 55/60% point. Anders writing style is solid, but the plot is all over the place and the characters seem very distant to me. I really enjoyed the first couple chapters (there was a real Terry Pratchett-y feel throughout them) but then all my interest was lost. It's been over three years since I've started a book and haven't finished it, so that says something for me.

I'd be tempted to pick up something else by Anders and try reading it, but this particular novel just isn't for me. Honestly, I'd rather just set this aside indefinitely and focus on reading the books I'm more interested in.

I'm rating this book on this 60% or so that I read of it. ( )

Growing up novel, trying to combine two opposite aspects (science/magic, and to a lesser extend male/female) in a captivating story involving revolving around how to save the world, or risk completely destroying it. In the far future it might be a good representation of the fears, hopes and way of behavior of nowadays younger generation. The ending is quite sudden and open ended, not really solving anything and without tying up the loose ends. The apparent dichotomy between magic and science is not really explained, and does not look great (considering the quote "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic") because in the existing form implies for example magic is something you are born with or that should just be taken from granted.

In the game of life and evolution there are three players at the table: human beings, nature, and machines. I am firmly on the side of nature. But nature, I suspect, is on the side of machines. -George Dyson, Darwin Among the Machines

"You never learned the secret,” said Roberta. “How to be a crazy motherfucker and get away with it. Everybody else does it. What, you didn’t think they were all sane, did you? Not a one of them. They’re all crazier than you and me put together. They just know how to fake it. You could too, but you’ve chosen to torture all of us instead. That’s the definition of evil right there: not faking it like everybody else. Because all of us crazy fuckers can’t stand it when someone else lets their crazy show. It’s like bugs under the skin. We have to destroy you. It’s nothing personal."
You know … no matter what you do, people are going to expect you to be someone you’re not. But if you’re clever and lucky and work your butt off, then you get to be surrounded by people who expect you to be the person you wish you were.
nature doesn’t ‘find ways’ to do anything. Nature has no opinion, no agenda. Nature provides a playing field, a not particularly level one, on which we compete with all creatures great and small. It’s more that nature’s playing field is full of traps.
Boredom is the mind’s scar tissue.
