    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver KindleThe following is an excerpt from the journal of Neal StephensonAfter the success of Cryptonomicon I’m having some problems narrowing down my next project The issue is that I have far too many ideas and I can’t decide which plot to use for my next bookI know that I want do something set during the late 17th century in Europe It was an amazing time with huge changes in politics culture commerce and science but there was just so much going on that I can’t seem

    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver Kindle4040It's the Moby Dick uestionThe plot's about an angry guy chasing a whale There's not a lot of variation on this theme he catches it or he doesn't Maybe he catches it and wishes that he didn't maybe he doesn't and regrets that he failed But this basic plot a straightforward uest for revenge is such thin gruel that you'd have to be on the lower end of the intellectual spectrum to fail to realize that the book's about something a little bit than hunting a big fishEven so there's no guarantee that you're going to tolerate 20 pages about rope At the end of the digression you're either going to respond in one of two ways You might be of the sort to go Hmm that was some fascinating rope discourse I had no idea that rope could be used in such multifaceted ways and having read that I am now a different and slightly rounded person Then again you could respond with a JESUS FUCKI

    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver KindleI think it's official I hate Neil Stephenson's books I hated his so called cyberpunk classic Snow Crash a fact that sets me apart from most of the nerdegalian and I really hated uicksilveruicksilver is kind of hard to classify if you in fact insist on classifying it It's kind of historical fiction in that it's set in the 17th and 18th century and follows the rise of empiricism and science It features real people from that period like Isaac Newton Gotfried Leibniz Robert Boyle Robert Hook King Louis XIV and others But the fiction part of historical fiction comes into play because the main characters an aspiring natural philosopher read scientist nam

    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver KindleI received an unexpected visit yesterday evening from a Mr Nosnehpets who told me he was a time traveller and writer from the early 25th century He had just published a historical novel and wondered if I would do him the service of reviewing itWhy me? I asked bemusedWell replied my visitor with an insinuating smile You appear in it than once You don't know it yet but you're one of your period's major authorsI snatched the book Mercury from his hands and it was even as he said There was hardly a chapter where I didn't turn up Often I would speak for paragraphs at a timeYou have cast me in an overly flattering light I protested I think you'll find that uotation actually comes from Oscar Wilde And this one is due to Winston ChurchillDe

    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver KindleWell Where to start with this Ok Let us first pretend that there are only two criteria to use when analysing works of fiction 1 number of characters and 2 richness of plot Now let us say we are drawing a chart with uality 1 on the horizontal axis and uality 2 on the vertical axis Now we have a space into which we can slot a few books lying around the house A Dickens novel goes into the upper right uadrant of the grid many characters and rich plot to bind them together A Samuel Beckett play would be located upper left just a few characters but richly textured interactions between them Dan Brown? Bottom left I am afraid ok there are other views but this is me talking now And what's in the bottom right uadrant? The London telephone book takes pride of place situated on the far right and exactly on the axis And just to the north west of it we find uicksilverWhy? Well let's see Let me talk about size first uicksilver forms

    eBook uicksilver eBook ¼ È gigonog.me uicksilver pdf, uicksilver Kindle uicksilver by Neal Stephenson is in some ways the strangest book I’ve read this yearThe most surprising aspect of the book is the fact that there is no plot I’ve read books that have started really slowly and even books where the author largely ignores plot to focus on building the setting This book however has no plotFor all intents and purposes uicksilver is The 17th Century The Novel In many ways it feels like the literary euivalent of an open world video game You just go around exploring with the characters with no context or coherence whatsoever Historical value is incredible Certain individuals like Isaac Newton John Churchill and William of Orange figure heavily Tons of others make shorter appearances As for location the book takes you everywhere from the port of colonial Boston to the 1683 siege of ViennaAnd almost surprisingly it’s charming Almost a thousand pages of exploring a historical setting occasionally becomes an arduous task but occasiona
