Komünizme fantastik alegori ve tehlikeleri. Hızlı tempolu ve aynı zamanda yavaşlama ve oldukça hızlı hareket etme hissi veren bir masal olarak anlatılır.
Bu kitabı okumak için sabırsızlanıyorum! Ancak, muhtemelen aslında okumayı seçmiyorum ... Hawking ve Mlodinow'a inanacak olursam: "Davranışımız fiziksel yasa tarafından belirlenirse, özgürlüğün nasıl işleyeceğini hayal etmek zor, bu yüzden biz biyolojik makinelerden başka bir şey değildir ve bu özgür irade sadece bir yanılsamadır. " (s. 32)
Bu yaratıcı bir hikaye - kafa karıştırıcı olabilir ama sürükleyebilir.
Mükemmel bir öncül ile iyi bir kitap. Ancak, Oliver önemli bir monolog kesip bu dünyanın arka hikayesini açıklamak için biraz zaman harcarsa harika bir kitap olurdu. Örneğin, Birleşik Devletler neden sınırlarını kapattı ve aşkı, her türlü sevgiyi, bir hastalığı ilan etti? Hükümet işbirliği yapmayan vatandaşları ne bombaladı ve ondan nasıl kurtuldu? Hükümet neden tarihi yeniden yazdı ve nasıl yeni bir din yarattı? Ve "tedavi" 18'den bir gün önce uygulanırsa birisi gerçekten delirir mi? Görünüşe göre Lena'nın sınıf arkadaşlarından bazıları erken yalak gitti ve iyiydiler. Bunun gibi küçük sorular ve tipik bir "ilk görüşte aşk" aşk hikayesi, kitabı olabileceğinden biraz daha az eğlenceli hale getiriyor.
Geçenlerde Seattle'da Vandenburgh ile tanışmaktan onur duydum ve o çok hoş bir kadındı - kocası ve Counterpoint Press (Jack Shoemaker) ile yayıncısı da okumadaydı. Evli bir kadının, serbest bırakıldığında birkaç kaşın kafasını kesen "Günbatımı Fiziği" adlı kurgusal hesabında belirgin bir şekilde yer alıyor. Ama bu Vandenburghs'un işinin güzelliği - tüm iyi yazarlar gibi o da bir gerçeği anlatır.
Marco-mirceas helper/cassies bodyguard. Francoise-a witch, and cassies good friend Apollo-a god that has cassie on his top-list for using as bait/killing Augustine-designer that designs outfits for cassie from the last book pritkin- cassies war mage partner-also half incubus.

Normally, it's exhausting, but no big deal. A first-level master's blood is pretty damn potent, so it doesn't take a lot. But Rafe's so far gone, Mircea's gonna have to lend him extra power just so he can survive the Change.later on rafe ends up surviving because mirceas plan worked and mircea is now rafes master.later on everyone discussed about what to do next and later on mircea and cassie have some alone time and mircea says that hes going to washnigton and wont be back till about 1 or 2 days at the most.cassie ends up going with francoise and marco to the store later on-a spell store/weapons, and cassie ends up running out of the store with franoise because cassie found out the kids were taken by the circle. later on pritkin comes and it gets alittle crazy only to have cassie and pritkin escape to someplace safe-but to have their bodys switched in each other. and then jonas is meant there and ends up taking cassie and pritkin in his house to make a deal. the next day jonas was talking about Saunders-the leader of the circle- and how he wants cassie to shift him to saunders.and then cassie later finds out some things about her father,quote-your father was a powerful necromancer, capable of commanding ghosts to do his will, he had a massive army of them, listening, prying, reporting to him about our activities. It's how the Black Circle always knew when we were planning a raid. His ghostly spies acted as a counterpart to the Pythian Court, giving the dark eyes and ears everywhere.... later on pritkin tells cassie alittle more about his old life and about the black circle.then pritkin and cassie found out later on from jonas is that agnes and him were kinda boyfriend and girlfriend along time ago.later on cassie,prithkin,jonas,and the demon dog ends up getting in a car and driving out of the house with mages chasing after them.after a bunch of going through ley lines and other horriable things,they finally made it to dantes and crahed into the place with mircea seeing them come in.mircea demanded the switch to be changed when he found out cassie was in pritkins body, and later on mircea ends up leaving pritkin and cassie in a boat that was suppose to lead them somewhere safer and mircea went back into trouble in dante without turning back. pritkin and cassie later on goes through some weird things like pritkin feeding from cassie and a run in with the D's...and now cassie and pritkin later on found out who the traitor was....Sal!the one and only person cassie knew for so long was the traitor...turns out sal was sent by tony to go kill the senate members. and cassie and pritkin also foiund out that marco knew about part of it also.sal starts to explain and cassie figures out a few things...her visions were trying to warn her, and now she also found out that richardson somehow got through cassies ward and the circles been using her power to weaken the ley line, letting apollo enter the earth.later on pritkin ends up getting cassie and they end up back in jonas car trying to drive away from apollo. and then later on cassie and pritkin found out the Rakshasas-demons- were following and made a plan that if they get close to the vordex then apollos sheild would weaken and the Rakshasas can suck the life out of him, and the plan seems to work and apollo dies.. later on cassie and mircea talk about their relationship alittlebit and the result of everythung thats happened- like sal died and nicu died too saving cassies life, and a god dead-which would probaly become a result more worse since apollo had allies...and then pritkin ruins their comvosation by running in because he found out cassie shaved his legsxD.
