    About "Yaron Glazer"

    1. Yaron Glazer

      In the time before memory there was a boy and he loved to read He read like it was going out of style, which it was, though he didn t realize it at the time even though the characters in his sci fi novels never read books This boy could read for hours on end, often staying up through the night and only noticing when it was like 6 am and daylight was creeping in under the blinds He finished all 6 of the Dune books in 3 weeks this way, and all 5 books of the Hitchhiker s trilogy That love grew and grew, and soon the boy started reading literary fiction He chewed through the classics He had a Russian period He vowed to finish every book he started He read Ulysses and Gravity s Rainbow and Infinite Jest, and then he read them again There was no other direction his obsession could go He had to start writing.If you ve made it this far, I m just going to go ahead and give away the ending here and confirm that the boy in the story is indeed David Mitchell Okay, fine, it s me But you ll never guess the rest Because slowly at first, and then faster and noticeably, our boy lost his amazing ability to read He finished Atlas Shrugged and promptly denounced his childish vow to finish every book He struggled with literary fiction and found himself returning to sci fi For twenty years, his head had been bombarded by news and information and movies and all manner of substances Then social media came along and killed his sickly attention span dead Don t get me wrong I still love getting lost in books It s just much harder now, because I don t have the patience to let authors build their story Hell, these days I m proud of myself if I can sit still and read 4 paragraphs without clicking a link or checking my inbox I need my novels to be instantly engaging But I also still want them to conjure up fully formed worlds as they drag me through them by the eyeballs Wouldn t it be great if some book out there could do both

The style itself is ambitious, and will leave ends loose if you don't pay attention and tie them yourself at points, though. More often than not, though, it makes it more enjoyable to read. I had the good fortune of meeting the author while he was back in Panama (he was a Returned Peace Corps volunteer like Jessica, reseaching for the novel and I was just fini [...]


    2. won on goods readsIsland of Shadows Island of Light by Yaron GlazerThis book mostly keep me confused because it kept switching from one character and different times for each chapter.It was as I can figure out about the life of the people on Panama during good times and very very dark times and everyone in fear or terrorized by guards and soldiers. As the political tides change back and forth.
