    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The Adjacent The Adjacent a beautifully written intricately constructed novel by one of our finest and most imaginative living authors His name is Christopher Priest If you haven't heard of him you should; if you think he's a mere scribbler of science fiction you couldn't be wrong Christopher Priest's use of the English language and mastery of the novel as a literary form is on a par with the likes of Wilkie Collins Graham Greene JG Ballard and Martin Amis In terms of structure The Adjacent features eight distinct parts described roughly in a few words as follows One Distant future Photographer Tibor Tarent returns to war ravaged England following the death of his wife a victim of a perplexing explosion attributed to terrorists near the hospital in Turkey where they were residing these past months Two WWI Thomas Trent an accomplished stage illusionist receives an army officer's commission and travels to the front his mission to make British war aircraft invisible to German eyes Tommy Trent shar

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The AdjacentI've been reading a lot of Christopher Priest lately and I think there must be some kind of critical mass build up because I just exploded The good kind of explosion Like my mind just poppedThis one's a love story Odd as that may seem looking like a death and a mystery at the beginningAt first I wasn't uite sure what to think These last few books have all been dealing with the Dream Archipelago an alternate reality close to ours in so many ways but all the names and locations are different and there are odd tech and weird creatures and fantastically detailed lives revolving around death u

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The AdjacentIf you're into stuff like this you can read the full reviewIt does not look like it but for me this is a love story at heartAs usual in a novel by Priest I had to keep my wits about me InSanity is the word of the day The 400 pages of The Adjacent are dense with encrypted epiphanies not all of them perceived at a first reading So I advise you all to re read it You'll get something out of it on a second readingFor me any book by Christopher Priest can be used as a goo

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The AdjacentThe Adjacent is my first taste of Priest’s work I know I know how could I call myself a serious genre reader and yet never cracked the pages of a Priest novel I’ve always been aware of him as an author – when I was in my teens I knew that Priest had written two Doctor Who scripts for the 4th Doctor that were never made and of course I’ve seen Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige – but I’ve never felt compelled to read his work His novels nearly a complete collection sit on my shelves in the garage collecting dust Priest is not alone My garage has become a Sargasso Sea of novels and novelists whose books I own but whose work I’ve never readWhen The Adjacent was announced I decided to rectify that state affairs and then nearly didn’t when I read the closing paragraph to Niall Alexander’s positive review of the book on Strange HorizonsReading The Adjacent is like taking a grand tour of the larger canon Christopher Priest has established ove

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The AdjacentShort review this is how sf should be written to be interesting literate and satisfy the desire for not the same againLonger review I would first mention that The Adjacent is connected with all the major C Priest work Affirmation Separation Dream Archipelago Prestige Islanders has a sort of explanation for both the alt world of Separation and the connection between the Archipelago and our world hint the title though of course nothing

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The AdjacentThere is something very appealing to me about the way Christopher Priest tangentially connects his novels In this one he is at the height of his world building powers deftly weaving in elements of The Affirmation The Glamour The Islanders and probably others I have yet to read His precise confident prose beckons one along into an uncertain environment of parallel worlds doubling and tripling in numbers engendering trust while at the same time stealthily destabilizing one's sense of reality One feels compelled to follow him regardless of those nagging suspicions that the mysteries that arise will never fully be resolved To close the cover at novel's end is to wake from a dream head clouded with hazy surreal images linked together in a hermetic storyline hovering just beyond reach of full comprehension

    eBook â The Adjacent Download º connecfloor The Adjacent510 For most of its length The Adjacent is startlingly bad especially for an author as well renowned as Priest The science fictional parts take place in an Islam dominated Britain right out of a right wing Eurabia screed while the historical narratives are the usual patter of cameos by famous people and long recollections of backstory After long hours of reading none of it seems to be going anywhereThings change a bit in the final third Without going into too many specifics Priest introduces a parallel world that is strange but also well developed There's a lot of exposition here as well but it's generally interesting exposition And slowly a grander puzzle begins to come into vision asking the reader how to relate all of the various narratives contained within the bookAll of which is well and good but the poorness of these narratives makes piecing them togeth
