I forged ahead with SAGAN'S DIARY anyway and I am glad I did. I didn't think it was possible to combine science fiction and poetry, but this text does exactly that. The thoughts expressed aww so intimate it's as if you've entered someone elses mind - which is the intention I this book all along.
I underlined entire passages in this book because they were so beautifully expressed. I even forced my husband to read one section describing intimacy between two people and without knowing anything about this book or its predecessors, he was absolutely blown away.
I desperately want to read more about this character and understand what brought them to this place in their life. It is written in reflection of a life butane manages both joy and melancholy at the same time. Brilliantly and poetically done.
Unfortunately, it is just a flow of consciousness mishmash of short snippets. This makes it largely unintelligible and frustrating to read. I finished it, hoping that it would improve, but it never did.
Skip this one.
As an aside, I love the way he slips in references to works by other sci-fi authors. There is even a referenece to one of T.S. Elliot's most famous works in "The Sagan Diary". I'll let you find it on your own.
