Morbid? No, not at all, just beautiful! This lavishly illustrated book presents 17 collectors of curiosities and oddities. The common theme seems to be death in all its forms. Each collector gets a brief presentation and their collections are presented in detail with astonishing photos.
The second book in the Hungry City Chronicles is almost as good as the first novel. The setting is the cold, Arctic snow plains of the North, where the moving cities hunt each other. An explorer comes along, telling tales of a Green America. Could the stories about a green continent really be true?
This is a brilliant show which offers the viewer a chance to discover what it is to be human in a philosophical sense. The show is very well played – (Anthony Hopkins is especially worth praise for his interpretation of Dr Robert Ford), and the narrative is well conceived. In my opinion, the show will perhaps be even better after a second viewing.
A great steampunkish science fiction novel. This is the first book in a quadrilogy, and it is offers a very good start. I look forward to watching the upcoming movie based on this book. The movie is due for 2018.
