Recommends it for: RAW fans, conspiracy buffs, occultists Recommended to Michael by: Serendipity Shelves: conspiracy-theory , fantasy , literature In my review of The Earth Will Shake I referred to the later sequels in the series as inferior. By the time I read this novel, I had read The Illuminatus! On one level, I think that weakens the story. This is also a rather darker novel than the first, which had its ominous elements, but still worked as an adventure story.
The bigger problem I had with it, however, was the experimental writing technique Wilson introduced with this novel. There are footnotes on almost every page, placed at the bottom of the paragraphs not the bottom of the page they refer to.
Over time, however, they become a "second novel" of their own, about the theories, disputes and personal life of a fictitious scholar named "de Selby" and his various cohorts, admirers and detractors. I found it very distracting, although I admit that at the time I was much less used to reading books with footnotes, and I missed a lot of the humor that I get now out of these notes.
I believe I only managed to finish the novel when I decided to skip any note that was over five lines. So, what seemed to be a failure now seems less so, although certainly where the first book worked well as a Young Adult novel with wide appeal, this is going to work only for a more specialized, probably more mature audience.
Some day perhaps I will give it a chance.
