Review Day of the Giants

Review Day of the Giants Lester del Rey ✓ 2 Free download Characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Lester del Rey Battle of the giants Leif Svensen's neighbor come to warn him that the farmers were going to take violent action against his dog for killing their livestock mentioned that he'd seen an angel the night before Big blonde woman on a white horse singing loud enough to raise. I ve really been enjoying Lester Del Rey s fiction lately He s a great writer with great characters and very original ideas Day of the Giants is a short novel and is borderline fantasyscience fiction in that the fantasy elements are explained with intentionally vague pseudo science or at least the intimation that there is some sort of scientific explanation that the narrator simply doesn t understand although one might conclude the narrator s rationalism simply deludes him into this In any event the book s cover with flying saucers prominently depicted in front of shadowy giants helps obscure whether this will be pure science fiction or science fantasy and Del Rey is not terribly concerned about such distinctionsIi is tempting to compare it to Poul Anderson s Norse fantasies although Anderson is much faithful to the essential doom and gloom of Norse mythology Del Rey s story is a very American re imagining of the Norse myth of Ragnarok I call it an American version of the myth because Del Rey s narrator struggles with the pessimism and barbarism of the Norse mythos and uses ingenuity and optimism to overturn the prophesies of doom It s rather like stitching a happy ending onto the epic of Gilgamesh and yet somehow it works It shouldn t of course It is a travesty But a fun one
