About this deal

Even as our hero Paul manages to sleep—one of the few—the world of the book gets more and more dreamlike, with characters behaving in unexpected ways and surprising developments occurring out of the blue. Bir sabah insanlar evlerinden ayrılıp güne başladıklarında fark ediyorlar ki; o gece dünya üzerinde hiçbir insan (en azından biri hariç) uyuyamamış.

SHORT LISTED FOR THE ARTHUR C CLARKE AWARD Dawn breaks over Vancouver and no-one has slept the night before, or almost no one. The world is thrown into chaos when 99% of the world's population spontaneously becomes incapable of sleep, and are forced to steadily succumb to sleep deprivation psychosis. I did manage to finish Nod, mainly because I was playing the "how many ridiculous words in one sentence can I find" game. It's not that often that I find myself writing a completely negative review, but I can honestly say that I can not find anything about this book that I liked.Oddly, I’ve been thinking like this since I was a teen, when I used to try to find poems beyond the real world.

Initially, I thought I had found what I was looking for in the previous two books within this volume. There is so much going on under our world of words and societal constructs, but we accept the surface as it is presented to us. Their close bond pre the end of the world balances on the edge of ending before falling over the void into nothingness.

La premisa es interesante y empieza bien, y ojalá hubiese seguido así, pero luego se vuelve pesadísimo y esta opinión está escrita sin haberlo terminado porque no me merecía la pena. My reading of this was a little altered by an awareness of his death, possibly in a daft sentinel way, as I pondered how us readers will never get to sample another dose of his very fucking full-on style.
