    One thought on “Ring of Ritornel”

    1. This is a very silly, badly-written SF novel, but, as they often do, it contains some great ideas and images. The bit where the hero is trapped in the timeless netherworld is rather good. He decides he will carefully replay his whole life, from start to finish, in every detail. So he does that, and he's still stuck there. Then he does it again. Still stuck. Then he decides he'll just carry on doing it, counting the times. He's up to a few hundred thousand when he suddenly remembers. He's tried t [...]

    2. ‘A THRILLING SPACE SAGA BY A MASTER FANTASIST“The Deep is the Beginning and the End, at once the womb and the coffin of time and space, the well-spring of life and death, the mother of nodes”James Andrek, brilliant young lawyer in the Great House of Oberon, mighty tyrant of the twelve Galaxies, has two obsessions: finding his Poet Laureate brother, Omere, and unravelling the mystery of his father’s death many years ago at the Node, perilous birthplace of the Universe.Did Andrek’s quest [...]

    3. My copy of this book is old, it says 35p on the cover and I've read it several times, it is in English, but not for years. I wanted to revisit it before I'm too old to focus on the small print. It hasn't lost it's fascination over the years, in fact it's worn very well. Set in an unimaginably far future, it's a tale of injury and revenge, of how much of a mind makes a person and explores the question of whether events are predestined or subject to chance. And James Andrek is a very likeable prot [...]

    4. s'agit d'un roman écrit en 1969, qui a beaucoup vieilli, je trouve, dans ses mises en situation, la manière de voir les personnages, et la façond e dérouler l'action. Il nous décrit les aventures d'un homme qui, après avoir perdu son frère, va le rechercher et se retrouver, de fait, embrigadé dans des aventures complètement délirantes. Ce roman prend par ailleurs comme hypothèse cosmologique que la matière qui apparaît dans l'espace provient d'une source unique, autour de laquelle l [...]

    5. This was, for the most part, a fun book to read. I enjoyed the 'sciencing' it did (pretty accurate explanations of stellar nuclear processes, some human metabolism) though I didn't really think it at all necessary--the book effectively used magic whenever it needed to (super-surgery to reengineer human processes, bugs that 'eat' energy from nuclear reactions). And apart from the book being in space, and concerning itself with extra dimensions, I think it could just as well have been set in a med [...]

    6. It's been too long since I read the book and am putting down my thoughts, but generally:I think I was on the fence on this one, but I set it aside in indecision as to keep or not. It had some silly thoughts, and some interesting thoughts, with odd politics and not very mysterious mystery and the playing with stellar science. Saving to read another day to see if it continues to entertain.
