The real world is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.
Just an occasional lurker here. I won't post much blog content until/unless Booklikes institutes Privacy options.
Didn't get much reading done yesterday, so not very far in yet.
So far I am cautiously optimistic I'll end up liking this one.
Set in a near future America after an event referred to as the "Wizard's War", and from what I gather so far is both a bit of alternate history and post-apocalyptic.
We've already had a bit of a battle, where the writing choice was a bit unusual. The action is described there in short, vague, spurts. I don't think I've seen something like this used before. For me it's not necessarily a negative, I tend to skim blow-by-blow battle descriptions anyway, it's just unusual.
And there's also already a bit of humor, which I love:
'A burst of machine-gun fire ripped through his chest.
"I think they've seen us," he added.
Edmund straightened his hat, only half-deafened. He fingered his pocket watch. Took a breath. Smiled. "Wholly possible," he said.'
Still trying to get my head around the world a bit, but so far I am intrigued.
