Summary

A young man's odyssey of self discovery in a world eerily alien, yet hauntingly familiar. Set 13 centuries in the future, A. A. Attanasio meticulously creates a brilliantly realized Earth, rich in detail and filled with beings brought to life with intense energy. In this strange and beautiful world, Sumner Kagan will change from an adolescent outcast to a warrior with god-like powers and in the process take us on an epic and transcendent journey.

©1981 A. A. Attanasio (P)2012 A. A. Attanasio

Epic journey

It’s an epic story, and is a bit different too. A lot of it is about states of perception, mind, identity, consciousness and existence, so won’t be for everyone. I enjoyed the epic journey, and it also made me look at things in a different way, at over the time I have been listening. The narration wasn’t very good, but not too bad to distract much.

A long time favorite, by destiny or choice?

I've been reading this book since middle-school (as well as Last legends of the planet Earth) back in the 80s. It pulls and tugs on many strings of thought, philosophy, and disciplines. I thought of Howlies and Haoles, how those in my church told me of a destiny, and how my physical traits garnered different responses from bullies and benefactors. Sumner Kagan, the protagonist, shared part of my existence from his start to the book's end. I'm not saying too much about the book itself, though, am I? Well, reader, or un-reader, just know that there's a dystopian future ahead of you, castes based on genetics, and a touch of metaphysics. Don't dwell on how things work now, they'll work differently then. If you're prone to melancholy, maybe skip this for now. As much as I love this book, it drags me down after consuming it. Every time. It's the only one that does, though. Hit Last Legends of the planet Earth or his excellent "Perilous Order of Camelot" series as well.

Starts out well then ends with poor attempt at profundity.

The author’s attempt to describe grandiose universal cosmic meaning defy logic and become nonsensical. Coupled with a sincere tone of the performance, it becomes almost laughable... then annoying. The beginning of the story and the character development is enjoyable, but that’s about it.
