平均5.0 星 A wonderful novel 2013年11月1日
评论者 Cathy Murray - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: Kindle电子书
I don't usually pay anywhere near this amount for Kindle books but after reading the free sample I had high expectations that this book was going to be worth the outlay! I was engaged with the story; intrigued by where it might be going; fascinated by the details about the island and Greek culture and absorbed by the emerging characterisation and looking forward to reading the remainder of the novel which is a good 500 pages in total. And I wasn't disappointed: this is one of the most complex, interesting, challenging and thought provoking books I've read for ages and I thought it was brilliant. Author William Azuski has taken the long route to explore his story and given himself the time to let the story build up slowly to its amazing denouement. That's not to say that the novel is in any way boring: to the contrary in parts it races forwards with an almost frenzied need to get to the answers. Which brings me to possibly the most interesting aspect of the novel: the way the author has handled time. It wasn't until I'd got right to the end of the novel that I realised how cleverly this had been done; while reading it there were places where I thought some tough editing was needed and as everything else was so good couldn't understand why it hadn't been done. But at the end I realised what a masterly trick the author plays with time and how cleverly he uses it to take the reader into other worlds with complete conviction and credibility. The writing in places is beautifully poetic and the descriptive passages conjure up vivid and original images. This novel isn't a quick, easy read; you have to concentrate and at times work quite hard to follow the plot and understand the significance of events but it is well worth the effort. Travels in Elysium really is a wonderful novel and I don't regret spending (in terms of both cash and time) much more than usual on the book.

平均3.0 星 Fast-paced yet thought-provoking 2013年8月29日
评论者 J. Conrad Guest - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
Young Nicholas Pedrosa is part of an archeological expedition that seeks to uncover the mystery of what happened to the people of Santorini, the Aegean island that, 3,600 years ago, was nearly destroyed by one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history. The expedition discovers, under meters of ash, frescoes, potsherds, even buildings and temples, but no remains of the island's inhabitants.

All this is but the backdrop for much more, including murder and deception, father-son regrets, and the search for the ultimate truth -- crossing the Great Divide and returning. An oracle is discovered, and the narrative jumps from present to past and back again -- are the inhabitants of the past aware of the visits of those from their distant future?

Some may find the narrative cumbersome, overwrought with metaphor, the denouement unsatisfying; while others will find Azuski's tale intriguing, inviting introspection on whether the white light those who claim near death experience is simply the projection of a mind unable to comprehend a world in which it no longer exists.

-- J. Conrad Guest, author of A Retrospect in Death
