despite the potential of the multi leveled subject matter and the breadth of the narrative from World War 2 Germany to present day Hollywood, and dozens of locales in between the novel and several of the characters are obsessed with chess, which makes for some intriguing action although it includes several wonderfully creepy set pieces, overall this is faraction oriented than horror this is Simmons second book, which must be the explanation for the occasionally stilted writing and the clear need of an editor the single first person strand amongst all the third person narratives is from one of the villainous mind vampires , which allows for some enjoyably tricky twists of perspective during various loaded scenes and it certainly helps to create a devious and punchy ending besides being an intriguing tool for the narrative, i think that this character is the novel s chief strength a very ironic portrait of a vicious, racist, murderous, insanely self absorbed, semi senile southern belle but one who also manages to be somewhat sympathetic and surprisingly funny particularly when detailing her prudish and judgmental view of modern society what a bitch but not just any bitch a mind controlling bitch who will get you and all of your loved ones if you stand in her way just imagine if prudish, semi senile southern belles were in control of your mind and body shudder

sci fi fantasy milestone Hyperion was published and revolutionize the horror genre in the same way King said that Simmons writes like a God and that he is a bit envious and what could exceed this quote There is a handful of authors who unite the lucky combination of hard, lifelong perfecting their writing and talent and Simmons is in a league I find just some are coming close to There may be authors just playing in one league that are as good or, regarding the worldbuilding but not characterization, better, but nobody writes works of such quality in different genres Sci Fi is totally my thing and I could name very few names of the same greatness as Hyperion, the same for horror and this one It s especially how it immediately blows one away, how it never gets boring for just a second, how it s complexity is never confusing, the characters motivations logical, everything slowly escalating to amazing plot points, And most of his novels are bricks, often withthan just 2 or 3 perspectives, time and plotlines.There is often so less action, few cliffhangers, nothing one is used to in modern writing to pimp, accelerate, and distract from characterization, plotting, and logical flaws and errors, Simmons is using pure characterization and a complex, interwoven net of protagonists and antagonists to lead the long novel to a culmination of epic proportion It s a shame that I am too lazy to investigate which classic elements and tales inspired Simmons in and to his works, because his epic sci fi novels are both filled with innuendos and connotations to famous ancient works or interpretations of these Reader of the classics, mythologies, and history might find goldmines I am blind to see because of a lack of special knowledge.One of the cases where I absolutely don t understand why people don t like it In other cases, there are elements that make it completely understandable that one can t deal with too sciency, too charactery, too world buildy, too whatever elements, but this has everything, it s the beginning of the career of one of the most talented and underrated writers of the 20th century So amazingly many pictures of this and Simmons other horror novel, Summer of night, that feels like a reinterpretation of Stephen Kings It, stay in mind, always a sure sign that the quality of the stuff is so high that it permanently blows ones mind away and leaves one, wasted, but very happy, afterward.Tropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres unique I just love Dan Simmons Mel Carrion Comfort is a beast of a book My copy clocks in at 800 pages, and to be fair to mr Simmons he kept the pace burning throughout the whole text There s much to enjoy in Carrion Comfort, and not the least of its good aspects is the premise In this particular work Simmons tackles on one of the most famous horror creatures the vampire What makes it different from almost all other vampire ficton is his approach to the subject Carrion Comfort is concerned with mind vampires, people who ca Carrion Comfort is a beast of a book My copy clocks in at 800 pages, and to be fair to mr Simmons he kept the pace burning throughout the whole text There s much to enjoy in Carrion Comfort, and not the least of its good aspects is the premise In this particular work Simmons tackles on one of the most famous horror creatures the vampire What makes it different from almost all other vampire ficton is his approach to the subject Carrion Comfort is concerned with mind vampires, people who can enter the consciousness of any person and control their actions completely, like a puppeteer Complete control, one from which there is no defense mental or physical, is certainly a frightening subject, and the opening set in 1942 Chelmno is pretty much stellar.The novel spans many years and locations, from WW2 Poland and surroundings to the 1980 USA The WW2 pieces are seen in retrospect, and are certainly the best part of the novel the obsession with chess that some characters have couldn t have been used in a better way Simmons presents a scene that truly is horrifying and memorable in its intensity and eeriness.However, aside from the general premise and the few WW2 portions, Carrion Comfort is surprisingly short on the horror factor most of the novel reads like a 80 s thriller, complete with black helicopters, secret agents, explosives and multiple shoot outs, which occupy most of its pages The characters are interesting especially the elderly Melanie Fuller but never fascinating, as they ought to be in a novel of such scope and ambition The allusions to real people are certainly a nice touch, giving the novel some realism amidst all these bullets.Overall, the books is compulsively readable, but rarely leaves anything unseen, and throughout its enormous lenght the reader will be exposed to as much action as he or she can take The frenetic, Hollywood like action can get a bit boring at times, and the true potential of the novel never really surfaces Still, for such a huge tome it s a breezingly fast read, muchenjoyable that the plodding Summer of Night, although the book certainly did not need to be 800 pages long
