    PDF/EPUB The Mirage MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co mirage free, The Mirage PDFMatt Ruff has written a novel that in many ways is a perfectly fine political thriller Three government agents fight a terrorist plot and find themselves drawn into a world of political intrigue full of gangsters and corruption and gunfights At that level the book would be at home on a rack in an airport bookstore nothing special but a perfectly competent example of the genre The central hook to this book though the thing that makes it a must read is that this is not our world in this world at some vague time around the turn of the twentieth century the United States degenerated into a loose sprawl of suabbling states run by fundamentalist despots and the Muslim world unit

    PDF/EPUB The Mirage MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co mirage free, The Mirage PDFWhile reading The Mirage I discovered there's a certain level of detail past which an author shouldn't go in any work of alternate history fiction and that level is reached passed and left in the desert dust in Matt Ruff's novel It's a great premise the Tigris and Euphrates Towers in the United Arab States are supposedly destroyed by Christian fundamentalist hi

    PDF/EPUB The Mirage MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co mirage free, The Mirage PDFThe best parts of Matt Ruff's alternate War on Terror world are when the story seems like a waking dream characters sense their version of events is not uite the reality yet the scenes are infused with details too vivid to be anything less These parts especially during the first half of the novel open the reader's eyes to new perspectives on what Americans must think of as an unchangeable cultural moment But also as with a dream the longer the novel goes on the gaps appear to make the story less effective less believable and less magical It plays games with wild pairings that work only to make the characters whose world we wanted to believe in seem less believable themselves The ending effectively explains the mirage but the second half of the book disappoints on a promise that even a broken mirror can through inversion and distortion show us ex

    PDF/EPUB The Mirage MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co mirage free, The Mirage PDFsorta disappointing what could have been an amazing novel just reads like genre fiction with a purported purpose the characters are flat and police proceduralish saddam and bin laden are evil and written with zero depth and this is a trap many writers fall into that evil characters should be written with no depth and complexity but evil actions reuire the most complex motives and yet writers settle for simple undiluted motivations greed jealousy etc but the biggest letdown of all was the rationale as well as the mechanism for the 'mirage' the answer is really simple taken from a fairy tale and the motivation for the mirage is even worse that is if you can even find it as it's never explicitly stated alas you're left with genre fiction without the plot payoff and capital L literature w

    PDF/EPUB The Mirage MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co mirage free, The Mirage PDFWhile the world building was cool it didn't uite live up to Lovecraft Country which to be fair this was written first so Matt Ruff has grown as a writer I really think the concept an alternate history version of 911 was great I really think alt history is a cool genre but usually it's execution is not for me This however was really enjoyableThere were Library of Alexandria think Wikipedia entries at the beginning of each chapters there are no chapter numbers but you can tell that's what they're meant to be that really helped to flesh out the world I would love another novel set in this world that is set wholey in this world version of America LBJ being a religious dictator was an interesting concept Israel is also located in Germany in this book which if you ask me makes sense than forcing Palestinians out of
