The set-up and development in Book I is fantastic - I couldn't put it down. Just finished the first book, and I'm just about to buy the second book. I'm anxious to see if the author lives up to the promise of this book, at the same time expecting that he won't. Not because he isn't good (the book is really well written, character development is great, the twists and turns of the plot are spell-binding,...) But because he can't. How do you take on the secret of life, the universe and everything without eventually having to cop out and say it's 42? On the other hand, maybe that's not a cop-out at all. Maybe the answer really is 42.
I'm about to plunk down $2.99 of my hard-earned cash to find out...
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!
Paul is a college freshman from a repressed military family, and he's always been somewhat different from other kids. As the story unfolds, Paul has to decide if he wants to expand his mind and possibly learn some things he may or may not want to know... there is much more to life than Earth and humankind. And he has powers that have yet to be unleashed. But what will he find on the other side? And what does all this have to do with heaven, hell, the dark side of the moon, and flying saucers?
