Doctor Rayner he whispered plaintively Why why why did you write Twilight uicksilver by Neal Stephenson is in some ways the strangest book I ve read this yearThe most surprising aspect f 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 My Side of the Story 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 euivalentf an After the Flood open world video game You just go around exploring with the characters with no contextr coher This book is just too vast to give justice to it in the few lines Open Secrets: Stories of this review that I might come up with nowIf you are ready to read this here are some suggestions1 Start with Cryptonomicon first You don t need to read this first but it will help you get used to Stephenson s style and you ll appreciate uicksilver better having done so2 Before reading uicksilver spend some time brushing upn some basic English history Did you know that London burned Do you know what the Monmouth Rebellion was and the Bloody Assizes that followed Do you know about the interregnum Do you know that William III deposed James II in a coup It would be nice if a timeline could be provided that summarizes the main points Stop Bullying Me! of English history that serve as context for this book I admit I did not know enough myselff the history involved to get full appreciation Maddie Inherits a Cowboy of the bookn my first reading so now I ll have to read it again some time after doing some historical readingsPerhaps read the wikipedia page Still Alice on the diaryf Samuel Pepys if not the diary itself Although he s really just a minor figure in this novel his diary covers many Rasputin of the same events that you ll encounter in uicksilver3 Be prepared to deal with long digressions and elaborate descriptions Insteadf seeing them as tedious look for the humor Stephenson inevitably tries to put some humor into these and although it s Royal Heirs Required often very dry it s uite amusing when you see how he s looking askance at the goingsn Hag's Nook of the times and persons4 Beyond the history take care to understand the geography5 Take some time to consider the cryptography used in the novel When you understand just how a letter within a letter can be written you ll appreciatef Stephenson s particular genius6 Even though this is hardly a science fiction novel it does deal largely with scientists in the Royal Society Be prepared then for descriptions The Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare of events seen through the eyesf a trained scientific A misteriosa chama da rainha Loana observer Something as simple as the motionf a boat s mast can be used scientifically to provide information about how the boat is loaded as you ll find in the novel Again these portions 年下彼氏の恋愛管理癖 [Toshishita Kareshi no Renai Kanriguse] of the book are trademarksf Stephenson s ingenuity and I enjoyed them immensely7 Be patient This is a long book and not an easy read If you can keep track Slippery When Wet of the main characters you can actually put it away for a time and return to it later to resume reading I actually started this book some time ago reading itnly when I had uninterrupted Julius Caesar: The Life and Times of the People’s Dictator opportunities to digest the novel I readther lighter works in the interim to keep me Die Schnapsstadt occupied and entertainedIn fact after starting this book I actually began workn a Master s degree and completed the Master s degree faster than completing the book That was perhaps a bit too slow but also tells about how busy I was instead La fortuna dei Wise of describing the naturef the book8 Revel in the richness Thunderbolts: Justice, Like Lightning... of this book It is indeed a masterpiece and you can certainly gain with each reread This typef book is indeed rare and its peculiar idiosyncrasies just make it distinctive in its majesty not lessening its achievement in any way I think it s fficial I hate Neil Stephenson s books I hated his so called cyberpunk classic Snow Crash a fact that sets me apart from most f the nerdegalian and I really hated uicksilveruicksilver is kind f hard to classify if you in fact insist n classifying it It s kind Death of a Dreamer of historical fiction in that it s set in the 17th and 18th century and follows the risef empiricism and science It features real people from that period like Isaac Newton Gotfried Leibniz Robert Boyle Robert Hook King Louis XIV and The Beloved Scoundrel others But the fiction partf historical fiction comes into play because the main characters an aspiring natural philosopher read scientist named Daniel Waterhouse a former concubine turned finance tycoon named Eliza and a charming vagabond named Jack Shaftoe never really existed and were fabricated for the sake Downcanyon: A Naturalist Explores the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon of the book which traces the activitiesf these three main characters as they live through the eraThe main problem I have with uicksilver was that it was largely plotless I kept waiting for something to happen Il Barça or some plot to coalesceut Italian Phrase Book of the noise but it didn t The characters are really just there to give Stephenson an excuse to carryn about the development Lovesong (Green Creek of science as a discipline the ephemeral naturef money and pirates sometimes all three in the same passage There s no narrative just a seemingly endless burbling f scenes the damn thing is passage There s no narrative just a seemingly endless burbling f scenes the damn thing is 1000 pages long and I READ the paper version Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South of thisne I actually kind Kelttiläistarinoita of liked the somef the parts with struggling scientist Daniel Waterhouse the best because the history f science interests me but even these moments f engagement were covered up by bscure details and Diversions That Were Like that were like plants in a sprawling gardenIn fact the whole book is bloated with details about experiments geneologies dissertations n stock markets battles family histories and Roma Noir other verbal flotsam that it made it downright hard to read the book and impossible to enjoy I get the impression that Stephenson gorged himselfn research for the book and then decided to use it all every last syllable no matter what hellacious effect it has A History of the Crusades, Volumes I, II and III (Boxed Set) on the narrativer the goal Love is the Enemy of actually telling an interesting story uicksilver may be entertaining than a high school textbookn the same topics but Exhalation only marginallyAnd the thing is that it snly the first THIRD Galileo of a trilogy plus a tie in to Stpehnons s book Cryptonomicon What s worse is that I went ahead and picked up thether books in hardback though I did so at a thrift store and Oglinda salvata only set myself back a totalf like three bucks I think I m just gonna eat that cost and not even think about picking them up given how much I disliked uicksilver Life is too short The gold that paid for a pound f Malabar pepper was melted and fused with the gold that paid for a boatload f North Sea herring and all Nemico of it was simply gold bearing no tracer smell Cannella e polvere da sparo of the fishr the spice that had fetched it In the case f C lestial Dynamics the gold the universal medium f exchange to which everything was reduced was force Neal Stephenson uicksilver Book 1 uicksilver That Every House Needs a Balcony: A Novel one man sickens and dies while another flourishes are characters in the cryptic message that philosophers seek to decode Neal Stephenson uicksilver Book 1 uicksilver givesff a bit f a low brow SF Pynchon vibe It works well in parts and falls a bit flat in parts dialogue etc I sometimes wish Stephenson wouldn t chase down every last snowflake I really do however enjoy the primary narrator Daniel Waterhouse and his interactions with such figures as Isaac Newton Samuel Pepys John Wilkins etc Having already read Cryptonomicon I was also glad to see Enoch Root ne DOGA AST of my favorite characters from that book Like Pynchon Stephenson takes historical fiction and probes the fiction needle into history at funky angles He thrills at causing his fictional characters to interact inbliue ways to historical characters Given the large amount Poems (The I Tatti Renaissance Library) of negative space in history think about how much we DON T know about people like Newtonr even the consumate diariest Pepys a creative writer Bleach, Volume 05 of historical fiction can bendreflectrefract the lightf Don street urchin turned swashbuckling adventurer and legendary King Gather Together in My Name 1ST Edition of the Vagabonds risking life and limb for fortune and love while slowly maddening from the poxAnd it is the talef Eliza rescued by Jack from a Turkish harem to become spy confidante and pawn Pentimento of royals inrder to reinvent Europe through the newborn power La maga delle spezie of financeA gloriously rich entertaining and endlessly inventive novel that. The following is an excerpt from the journalf Neal StephensonAfter the success The Last Testament 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 goingn that I can t seem to make up my mind and pick ne r two concepts for the book Here are some Run to the Roar: Coaching to Overcome Fear of the top ideas I m mullingver The soldier and scientist dynamic between Waterhouse and Shaftoe worked so well in Cryptonomicon that I d like to do something similar here Perhaps have characters who are the ancestors The Art of Teaching the Bible: A Practical Guide for Adults of Lawrence Waterhouse and Bobby Shaftoe This would be during the early periodf the Royal Society when men like Isaac Newton Robert Hooke Gottfried Leibniz and many Gaudi others were essentially creating modern science and battling among themselves Putting an ancestorf Waterhouse in among them seems like a natural fit I m also fascinated by all the religious upheaval in England following Cromwell s death through The Glorious Revolution Having a character with a Puritan upbringing caught up in these events would be interesting Maybe that s the place to bring a Waterhouse into it But I m eually interested by all that was happening in commerce during this time Our modern economic systems were being developed and even the very nature The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 2 of money itself was being redefined I d very much like to do a plot that involved that However I m also intrigued by all the political machinations and palace intrigue that took place across allf Europe If I do something with the political side then I ll almost certainly need to set something among all the wars and conflicts that took place That might be a natural place to use a Shaftoe character I d really like to dig into the details Astrología para principiantes of how dirty smelly nasty and short life was to most people back then It might beriginal to get away from the known events and famous people Amen: what prayer can mean in a world beyond belief of the time and show a viewpoint from someone common like a vagabond Maybe this should be a Shaftoe character Thinking about vagabonds it d be interesting to do a modern takef a picaresue novel with a rogue ish hero getting into adventures and insulting the people No Puedo Perderte of uality This would definitely be a great Shaftoe character I d also like to explore the rolef women in this society Maybe have some kind In Every Heartbeat of very smart female character who has to use her charm and brains to navigate a varietyf social and political challenges Could I tie that in with the money thing Doing some kind The Seraphim Code of story about spies would be really cool If I write about spies I could use somef the cryptography stuff I brought into the last book again Pirates I definitely need to do something with pirates Slavery I should also work in some stuff about slavery I d also like to use the Enoch Root character again That d really establish him as an ageless stranger who is kind Sortemesse of pushing events in certain directions just like he did in Cryptonomicon Plus that gives it a bitf a sci fi element so I ll be eligible for all the Locus and Hugo type awards On top La fabbrica di cioccolato of everything else I m dying to play with the format a little Maybe do some chapters like a stage play from the era Or tell a section via a seriesf letters If I use letters to tell the story it d be another chance to work in the code stuffThere are too many possibilities I don t know how I ll ever Wait I just had a crazy thought I shouldn t be trying to NARROW the focus I should EXPAND the focus Throw all Klara with A K of these ideas and even intone giant stew potNo that s insane It d be too complex and convoluted How could readers keep everything straight Just trying to keep track Serving Sera of the various royal families alone would drive most people mad I guess if I used just twor three main characters but then had them shift into a variety Samurai! of roles Waterhouse as a Puritan a scientist and a political player in England Shaftoe as a soldier a vagabond and a syphilis sufferer Maybe add another Shaftoe ifne is going to have syphilis Make the woman a spy an anti slavery advocate and a natural genius with money Could it work Have them all bounce against all the people and events La meglio gioventù of the time How could I make that coherent And it d have to be huge Probably at least three books with 800 to 900 pages a book Yes Yes I can make it work I am just that damn good Those who go along with it will marvel at my genius Those who can t follow along will be too exhausted to complain It s brilliant Those fools won t know what hit themAnd I will call it The Baroue Cycle BWAH HA HA HA HA HA Yes I Neal Stephenson like to write evil laughter into my journal while I m plotting my booksKemper s Random Commentsn uicksilver Wikipedia is your friend while reading this book Jack Shaftoe is not called Half Cocked Jack just due to his tendency to act without thinking shudder Isaac Newton should NOT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO HANDLE have been allowed to handle Considering the way that various dogs cats horses rats frogs and striches are treated this story is bviously set long before the ASPCA Solea or PETA existed Stephenson has a lotf fun allowing his characters to make history Daniel Waterhouse casually comes up with the name New York when By the Light of the Moon others are

and series so far Like in Cryptonomicon Stephenson is going big think Pynchon Eco etc but his prose is flat Il cacciatore often and his dialogue is worse The dialogue seems closer to a Boston pub in 1987 than in a Royal Society meeting but meh It was still intersting and fascinating I like the label Historyf Science Fiction So I might not read this The Unscratchables one twice but I ll for sure finish the series just not tonight Neal Stephenson books are not for everybody Actually they are but not everybody will like them This will certainly be the case for uicksilver It s a love itr WTF did I just read kind Therapy of reaction A NS book isften dense and erratic in the linear story Mr Stephenson has a myriad The Hug of interests and a sizeable intellect backing him up His stories tend to delve in a varietyf side topics all The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories of which are very informative bututside the normal story arc and that can be Autostop con Buddha: Viaggio attraverso il Giappone off putting to many who dislike tangential topics to the main plot Wellyou have been warned For the restf you that like NS let me tell you about uicksilverIt is a book broken up into three parts The first part uicksilver is flashback Speak the Ocean of the early lifef Daniel Waterhouse during the early 1700s The second part King Newark's Little Italy: The Vanished First Ward of the Vagabonds focusesn James half Cocked Shaftoe and the vast majority takes place circa 1683 The final part Odalisue goes back to D Waterhouse and details his exploits during his time as a courtier for Charles II f EnglandSet during the Baroue era NS shows the monumental changes taking place As an aside the Baroue era was ne where the Catholic Church under the guidance Tolstoy Lied: A Love Story of the Councilf Trent 1545 1563 in Trento Italy decided to perform a Counter Reformation to act against the growing Protestant Second Sight (Circle of Three, outbreak What the Council espoused ironically contrary to past Church policy was that the Churchught to encourage arts that explored religious themes with a direct and emotional involvement Thus the exaggerated motion and clear easily interpreted detail Strife of the Baroue style found a receptive audience among the Church and the Aristocracy who felt that the the dramatic stylef Baroue art and architecture was a means Only a Few Bones: A True Account of the Rolling Fork Tragedy and Its Aftermath of impressing visitors by projecting triumph power and control Thus the Baroue styleriginates in Italy specifically Rome and began to spread throughout Europe during the 1600sThe Story Is A Grand story is a grand The setting is Europe and the cast includes many famous people from Newton to William Baby Colossus (Short Story) of Orange Along the way you will learn about the conflict between Gottfried Leibniz and Issac Newton about the math behind Newton s ideas was interesting wellto me It shows the basis for the creationf calculus and how it differed from geometric and trigonometric expressions Truly amazing It also hints at the fact that what Leibniz is referencing as a math language is the basis for the binaric calculations done by modern computers Very coolI will not spoil the plot nor delve too much into the details since NS does it far better than I if you re interested in the scientific political and economic forces that drove the baroue period then this is the book for you Vast in scope dark in humor dense in knowledge lacking in a strict linear plot this is textbook NS Coming in at the size f a textbook I reiterate this is not for everyone but if you NS Coming in at the size f a textbook I reiterate this is not for everyone but if you the patience to get through it I think you will find it to be worth it I did 4040It s the Moby Dick uestionThe plot s about an angry guy chasing a whale There s not a lot Modern Castrato: Gaetano Guadagni and the Coming of a New Operatic Age of variationn this theme he catches it Panzer Baron: The Military Exploits of General Hasso von Manteuffel 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 ben the lower end f the intellectual spectrum to fail to realize that the book s about something a little bit than hunting a Big FishEven So There fishEven so there no guarantee that you re going to tolerate 20 pages about rope At the end f the digression you re either going to respond in A Little Bit Psychic: Pride Prejudice with a Modern Twist onef two ways You might be f 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

white sea mammal is the TITLE The Dashwood Sisters Tell All of the book and I m reading about some shitty rope Christ I need some vodkaYou should know what sortf reader you are before picking this
