Bu kitabın oldukça ilgi çekici olduğunu gördüm (alternatif bir tarih, Hitler'in ABD'nin insanlığın kolektif hafızasından kaybolmaya başladığı II. Dünya Savaşı'nı kazanmasıydı!) Ancak nihayetinde romanın sonuçlarıyla hayal kırıklığına uğradı. Roman kurulurken beni yakaladı ama infaz beni daha fazlasını istemeye bıraktı.
Not the guide for the solitary the title implies, this collection of essays reflect the author's reflection on the universal feeling of facing the world alone. The overall breadth of essays suggest that the energy individuals exert feeling paranoid of our solitary stake in the world is exactly what keeps people disjointed from a larger sense of connectedness and community.
This book started off slow for me, yet I knew that it was something I'd eventually get into. I should have trusted the author more. She's written other favorites of mine and demonstrated her ability before. This book does something that few books do well in that it makes you care about ALL of the characters, not just the mains. I find myself having empathy for even the truly evil characters. Everyone has clear motivation; it's not just 'because he's the bad guy.' I was definitely impressed by how well things fit together and were tied together as the story progressed. By the end of the book, I am definitely dying to read the rest. I do, as always, have to wonder and object to all of the cool, kick-ass warrior vampires being male. Why can't there be kick-ass women too? But I guess that is what is going to make my book--when I eventually publish it--really I'm going to--different from all the others in the genre.
