    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFA fairly common mistake made by authors is failing to be familiar with their genre They end up retreading old ground and relying on long dead cliches because they aren't aware of what's already been done So it behooves an author to get some familiarity with the genre he intends to work in to ensure that he isn't just writing the same old story over againIn that spirit I thought I'd check out this award winning early piece of Steampunk It was a rough start One of the first red flags in an author's prose is how often they use 'almost' 'seemed' or worst of all 'almost seemed' in their descriptions and metaphors Such words are meaningless filler and are usually a s

    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFMore time travel than steampunk although it has been categorized as the latter Tim Powers' The Anubis Gates is fun but it leaves one feeling a little short changedThe problem is that Powers' story has the narrative scope of Neal Stephenson's Baroue Cycle but it is packed into a mere 380 ish pages Beggar's guilds Egyptian wizards Romantic poets business magnates and prize fighters mix with cross dressing vengeance seekers mad clowns body snatchers fire elementals and gypsies Time slips from 1983 to 1810 to 1660 something and back to 1811 seemingly following a linear path of cause and effect then spilling paradoxically into a strange whirlpool motion where effect can be cause before effectAnd all of this is tremendously effective It generates curiosity makes one read at high speed fills the imagination with wonder and provides great entertainment but it is not enough There are huge gaps in the tale like Brendan Doyle'sWilliam Ashbless' time in Egypt whe

    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFThis book was just so much fun It was really really entertaining and I have no problem giving it five stars Basically it is a story about time travel It reminded me a lot of the Doomsday Book by Connie Willis which is one of the best books I have ever read so I mean this as praise indeed The method of travelling is very original and the purpose very deviousHaving travelled our hero spends a large part of the book living in the past and often suffering accordingly We meet Coleridge and Lord Byron and travel geographically as well as time wise Magic comes into play but it is a very flawed magic and does not always behave as it shouldOccasionally I must admit it all got too smart for me and I got a bit lost as to who was who Did I ment

    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFTwo and a half stars for me by the GR system; 'okay' verging on 'I liked it' My appreciation could probably benefit from a second read Ultimately I can see where others liked it but it's not executed in way I enjoyedIn some ways it reminds me of Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog in that while there is some time traveling there is very little of technological surprise and most of it takes place within Victorian England In similar fashion to TSNotD a historian accidentally gets left behind; in this case he is kidnapped shortly after his time traveling group goes to England to hear Coleridge speakThe magic system isn't well explained but involves some Egyptian spirit theory and some earth magic and perhaps the most interesting developments of the book are when these devices

    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFMy main feeling during the book was that it was weird Not bad weird not necessarily good weird just a bit odd I found it took a while to get into I was never bored but I also wasn't really all that interested for a large portion of the beginning of this one Then it started to pick up and I found I really started to enjoy things once we met Jacky and that lot There were a lot of interesting ideas strange characters and weird happenings in this novel I enjoyed it but I'm sure I don't understand half of it Although a few of the motivations were very clear most really weren't I know what they were trying to achieve but I still don't know why I'm not sure it really matters It was a fun read anyway Strange but fun

    The Anubis Gates PDF ☆ The AnubisePUB Ð anubis download, gates ebok, The Anubis kindle, The Anubis Gates PDFI’m not sure exactly what I think of this time travel adventure There are aspects that I love some that leave me confused and at least one that produced both sensationsI loved the Ancient Egyptian connections—hieroglyphs gods goddesses the great boat of Ra I appreciated that it wasn’t easy for the time displaced person to fit into the new society that they found themselves in Coming from the privileged twentieth century didn’t mean beans when it came to supporting oneself in the late 19th century something which I think many writers forget or discount I also loved the use of the Beatles’ song “Yesterday” as a signal amongst the time travelers in old London something that every 20th century person of a certain age would be familiar withOne of the confusing
