[PDF] Vacuum Flowers BY Michael Swanwick – Kindle ePUB and Epub

Summary Vacuum Flowers

Among the vanguard of today's boldest writers Michael Swanwick presents his world of plug in person. Swanwick has been an amazing writer for a very long time I ve just reread this after 15 years or so and it s just as fresh as the day it was written It seems wrong to describe it as cyberpunk as it s got so much creativity insight and breadth than pretty much anything else in that genre It reminds me of Samuel R Delaney s work than William Gibson sOn the other hand it does all kind of hang on the classic SF trope of the person who has had their memory blasted and so gets a guided tour of all the strange stuff with the reader following along It takes a long time to figure out where it s headed and while this is true of the POV of the protagonist lacking that sense of direction makes it less compelling somehowI d rate this above his recent and depressing and or surreal fantasy novels above his first novel In the Drift and behind his most amazing Stations of the TideIt s interesting looking back at his career as he s 62 when I write this and was 37 when he wrote this Right from the start he could out write almost anyone but that might be a sad and lonely and certainly not very well paying place in our world where Sturgeon s Law 90% of everything is crap and the corolary that most people are happy with crap operates He s a very smart man and his justifiedly though not necessarily enjoyable jaundiced view dominates much of his work He hasn t been fully ground down yet while writing this one at least

L seeking refuge on Earth's orbiting settlements where all human evils blossom in the vacuum of spa. I give up DNF at 50% The world building is just so chaotic that I don t really know how anything works or why or where the characters even are half the time As for the characters I m seriously struggling to care about them Just when I think I understand what the story is about and where the plot is going random stuff happens that makes me all confused again Sadly I ve reached the point where I just don t care any Time to move on

    Swanwick has constructed an impressive world in this book but he does it without acknowledging the reader's unfamiliarity From the very beginning it's written as if the audience is contemporary to this world; details are included to enhance the picture but not all details are explained Just like someone wouldn't feel the need to explain how a telephone call works in a story of our time he assumes the reader knows or will figure out what is
