free download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB æ Michael Cisco review The Divinity Student Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Michael Cisco æ 3 review Ng man known only as the Divinity Student is beset by strange dreams whose lingering effects further alienate him from his fellows. Michael Cisco The Divinity Student Buzzcity Press 1999I had somehow gotten it in my head that The Divinity Student was a horror novel I have no idea how that happened for it is anything but This is a fantasy almost a steampunk novel that put me in mind than anything of K J Bishop or Ekaterina Sedia but with the obsession with language commonly found in Catherynne Valente or China Mieville And if you re a fan of any of the above and haven t discovered Michael Cisco yet do so at your earliest opportunity It is beautiful fascinating thought provokingAs we open the nameless Divinity Student of the title is struck by lightning and killed but we soon see that this is some sort of common or at least understood ritual in this world the body is returned to the seminary eviscerated filled with pages ripped from sacred books and plunged into water I now want to be buried like this He then returns to consciousness and is given an assignment by Fasvergil the head of the seminary he is to go to San Veneficio a nearby city and get work as a word finder while he waits for further instructions When he gets them that s truly amazing and it s there the plot really kicks off but just think about the idea of a world where you can go to a city and find work as a word finderThere are so many wonderful things to say about this book that I m not even sure where to begin There are some I can t talk about because we d be getting far into spoiler territory but the writing is just phenomenal Michael Cisco has a love affair with the language and it shows The downside to that is that typographical and proofreading errors made by the press tend to come through in books like this and it didn t help that this was the second book in a week that used the odd but somehow appropriate phrase door jam as it is spelled right in other places in the book I m giving Cisco the benefit of the doubt and blaming the press but that s not something for which I can blame the author And the plot here is one of the most original and pleasurable I ve come across in years The book is not perfect though if you re going to err better to do it this way than the other if anything it s shorter than it should be There are a few chapters that begged to be further fleshed out The Final Interview especially could have been twice as long as it is Still there s so much about this book to love that you can t go wrong This is by far one of the best books I ve read this year and I can t recommend it highly enough Find it and read it as soon as you possibly can
