The Divinity Student

The Divinity Student Review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ng man known only as the Divinity Student is beset by strange dreams whose lingering effects further alienate him from his fellows. This is the most hallucinogenic novel I ve read in a long time perhaps ever putting a strong emphasis on weird in weird fiction If you can handle the lack of logic and linear plot the language and imagery is fantastic creating not just a brilliant atmosphere but an actual narrativeYou know those nights that you have lengthy complicated and disturbing dreams and you woke up know that you ve spent the last 6 hours inside a complex and involved story but the second you try to tell someone about it you realize you can t remember a single detail then for the rest of the day you have that nagging feeling that you are forgetting something or that there was something terrible important you were supposed to remember then you realize its just the residue of the dream drifting around in the back of your mind That is what every page of this book feels like All the review which say this book sacrificed character and plot for atmosphere are partially right the tone and feel of the book is much important than strict characterization and story telling but that s a matter of taste However I think those reviews do Cisco a disservice because there is a plot it might be hallucinogenic and nightmarish but one central character travels to a physical location and then pursues one consistent goal This is not Finnegan s Wake or even Dhalgren City of Saints and Madmen or Viriconium The Divinity Student kept me mesmerized and I ll certainly seek out of Cisco s books

The Divinity Student Review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Short but powerful this neo gothic novel which is illustrated by Harry O Morris uses the crisp immediacy of the present tense to l. For those of you that feel a need to put this in a slot let us call this Gothic horror surrealism Like all good surrealism the reader is going to want to assign meaning and connection to things that are meant to be meaningless and unconnected On the other hand there is definitely somewhat of a linear plot here In some places it is downright funny The body snatching scenes are derivative of the usual clichesWhat else can you say about a book where the Divinity Student is eviserated and stuffed full of paper in the first few pages Our fearless protagonist a word finder by trade has to distill the essence of twelve dead word finders to finish the catalog of lost words He will scamper through a surrealist background while he tries to finish his mission This is the only book I have read that has a large dose of surrealism and actually became a page turner for me The Centipede Press hardcover is also beautiful and the illustrations are marvelous I have not read anything except a few short stories by Cisco but I will definitely be dipping into this the rest of this box set from time to time
