The characters are both compelling and believable (and unlike a lot of writing out there) the reader cares what happens to them. And I must admit to more than a little unease by the end; a little uncertainty that what I take as day to day reality is little more than a veneer on top of something else, something much bigger. It was hard to put down!
My only complaint came at the end, where the meaning of "Book One" became clear. It's a cliff hanger!
This is a strange but appealing mix of cerebral prose, urban legends, cinematic and musical pop-culture references and conspiracy theories, set in contemporary fantasy form and enunciated in an unique, sometimes downright odd, but always refreshing voice.
Author spent 10 years writing this novel and it shows. His style is different from anything I've read before. Prose is complex yet polished, timing is good and plot unfolds snappily.
Recommended for anybody who enjoys a different take on a familiar genre.
Intelligently written and expertly paced, Season of the Serpent is a true multidisciplinary feat. Infused throughout are Nova's intimate understandings of history, psychology, physiology, and the energetic fields that compose our own Matrix. Pick your passion, and it's there: Yahweh and the Elohim; quantum physics and flying saucers; the fragile nature of a currency not backed by precious metals; the Freemasons and the mysteries of the Roswell UFO crash site. I could go on and on. He takes those subjects and phenomena that interest, confuse, and frighten us the most and presents us with a rearranged interconnectedness that shocks us because it inherently makes sense.
Author David Nova doesn't mince words; he doesn't spare readers the full-blown realism that keeps us tethered to Paul's experience. There's no safety net here. From Pink Floyd's "The Great Gig in the Sky" to Van Halen's "Running with the Devil", Nova even provides the soundtrack to accompany each rise, fall, and hover: a nod to the original juxtaposition of Hollywood on rock that helped to incite this string of events to begin with.
This book makes me restless. I want to share, to compare notes and - truth be told - scramble to find others just like it. Not since The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter (the book, not the movie) have I been moved to this end, and it's driving me crazy not to have a rooftop right now.
The story is compelling and beautifully written. Its ending left me wanting more, and I'm really looking forward to the next book. Highly recommended!
Everyone can relate with and feel for the protagonist Paul Venturi--after all, he's ordinary--just one young adult who happens to be more sensitive and smarter than the average college student and who's just trying to get by and pay his dues. On the surface, that is, because as the story unravels, there's more to Paul--and to the rest of the universe--than meets the eye. Before long, Paul finds himself in the middle of a power struggle whose sheer magnitude one could not even begin to fathom.
Cleverly written, and with deliciously delivered satirical humor in the right places, the book keeps you entertained and chuckling to yourself on every page, muttering to yourself, "Yeah, that's just spot on!" The author David Nova is undeniably one hell of a talented writer, and he has that amazing knack for presenting a dizzying array of topics as ancient and primal as Yahweh and as modern and esoteric as quantum physics and UFOs and still find a believable interconnection for them all.
Overall, `Secret of the Serpent' is incredibly entertaining, and the multiple layers of meaning it contains lend it that intellectual and literary gravitas you don't often find in a novel of this genre. Two thumbs up for this awesome book!
