Alcune storie lasciano frastornati e l’interpretazione è spesso astratta e soggettiva, come se l’autore volesse metterci alla prova chiedendo uno sforzo emotivo e riflessivo in più. First off, I used to think that Stephen King's It was the best example of "Editor's exist for a reason. Hypotetická ještěrka byla zajímavá, ale v polovině ten příběh nabral jakousi hořkou pachuť, která mi nebyla po chuti a táhla se až do konce.

Not least because he's amped up just enough of what is on the record that he has cover beyond the changed names for what isn't. Having accepted all of which it almost feels like, if you say, hang on, did the CIA really mandate Marvel's move into superheroes, and was that in its turn really responsible for Trump, then you've fallen into Moore's trap, revealed yourself as another fanboy addict making excuses.Welcome to the creation of life in the universe as imagined by Alan Moore - I don't think you'll be disappointed. But for a man who's complained about how heavily comics is still influenced by a bad mood he was in during the eighties, it would surely be healthy for all concerned if he could maybe move on from being in a bad mood about comics to quite this extent.

I was surprised that this was one of the very few sore spots Moore refrained from poking here – the other glaring one was Steve Ditko's increasingly loopy politics. My favorite story is the first one: “Hypothetical Lizard” which describes a mesmerizing standoff of two prostitutes in a fantastical brothel, as seen by a third mute (sort of) other prostitute.COLD READING - Two Stars - Again, fun story, but nothing special and the twist was again super-obvious from the get-go. It took me a few pages to get into it, but it winds up having a nice rhythm, and building to a clever ending. I have a very hard time getting up the stairs as a twenty-some year old without resorting to all fours--and I have better balance than An American Light . I genuinely don't think I'll ever come across a worse example, and I have my entire reading life ahead of me. While this background is given, the story really focuses on Som-Som’s transexual friend Rawra Chin and her abusive partner Foral Yatt.

But, in imitation also of Nabokov, this one has footnote annotations explaining all the references Moore’s built in, everything the audience is, in a real poem, supposed to interpret for themselves. The structure of this story reminds me of Nabokov’s brilliant Pale Fire, which has a similar structure, only where the critic is insane, and perhaps a murderer, and the footnotes can be read for a suspense plot. So I've taken my time with it; when someone takes 40 years writing before they get a collection out, binging it would be as foolish as gulping a new Ted Chiang book. This story, which takes up a majority of the total page count, shows an interesting set of interconnected lives belonging to persons in the comic industry.Some plots are sardonic dissections of pretense, exposés of the subterfuge hiding behind the social contract. AND, AT THE LAST, JUST TO BE DONE WITH SILENCE (three stars) This one refers to an historical event in the middle ages with which I’m unfamiliar. Cold Reading" es predecible el final y aunque es la intención de Moore el personaje principal es demasiado antipático.
