review the not yet ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Praised for its political vision literary voice and environmental prescience The Not Yet envisions a ravaged and abandoned Gulf Coast in the year 2121 Throughout the former US wealthy Heirs. This is a compelling book with the capacity to appeal to a wide range of readers It is part of a trend in literary fiction to dispense with the segregation of genre Science fiction as a defined culture has a rich tradition which has been stigmatized It is marginalized by the mainstream as acclaimed authors borrow tropes some while vehemently denying any association with the genreIn Stalking the Billion Footed Beast and Hooking Up Tom Wolfe bemoans the declining relevance of the novel and seeks salvation in hyperjournalismdocumentary realism While I agree with his thesis regarding the waning relevance of fiction and enjoy his forays into capturing reality in a heretofore unimaginable detail a certain poetry is lost in that endeavor The Not Yet stands with modern and post modern masterpieces in dipping into the science fiction genre to renew the relevance of the novel A growing number of contemporary authors including Cormac McCarthy Margaret Atwood and are using elements of science fiction to explore important issues with creativity than has been accepted by mainstream publishing readers in the past Many efforts by these authors including The Not Yet make apt use of newly exerted freedom while steering well clear of cliche and superficiality attributed to the genre ghettoWhat makes The Not Yet a tour de force expression of the zeitgeist in the evolution the novel is the depth of emotion it evokes Though many raw and powerful themes are addressed the measure of aesthetic distance applied establishes the author s integrity and reveals compassion for both characters and readers The novel is poignant and evokes nostalgia for what will be lost and what will be changed It calls the reader to engage in the present and consider what it means to live fully and the inherent conflict that presents to preserving what is dear

review the not yet ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Mysteriously disappears he must sail to the chaotic New Orleans Islands for answers On the way he encounters the darkest side of Heirs' privilege which threatens everything he knows and love. You should probably read Bart s review which is simple to the point and effectiveOr go on and read my blather I don t mindThe first hundred or so pages I devoured as if I hadn t read anything good in a while which in some ways was true I mean I just finished some Capote which was great but my last foray into dystopian sci fi that really thrilled me was Peter Watts and that was a year ago I was glad to have something dragging me back round even if because it s not as horribly pessimistic and borderline sociopathic as Watts s stuffOf course I was suckered into this book what with it being set in and around New Orleans and Crone delivers I d say I caught a good 90% of the local references most of which were to street city and community names I especially loved the subtle okay not so subtle digs at the people of now whose descendants are represented in the story as being just like their forefathers Here and now we have people living on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain in commuter communities and this is my experience and prejudice speaking they re all happy to drive into the city for their jobs but think that it s a horrible crime ridden and dangerous place and most of them head straight back out by sunset In the book set in the 2120s a character says in reference to her communityWe ve got our system The place isn t full of rapscallions You been to Chef Menteur Open enclave everybody looking for an angle leaving their own kin behind And the rich getting out the rest starving All them poor houses up on stilts bout to drown Twenty feet in the air Not like that We are orderly we are on the cycle We have a natural levee we live on high ground up here north shore of the Sea Lake Pontchartrain We don t toss outthat s just one example of course Crone also gives us stories of the rich people the old money that live in what is currently the Uptown part of New Orleans enclaves of those wealthy enough to have purchased this immortality She also delivers a fascinating chapter about the protagonist s first visit to the French uarter and all the characters he meets how he gets intoxicated and drugged before he even realizes what s going on the somewhat dangerous adventures through which he is dragged by his newfound compatriots and she does it all writing from a third person omniscient point of view that she manages to contaminate with the haze of alcohol and fumes and bustle and spin and vertigo and really I think every one of us has had that one particular night in the uarter and she absolutely nails itOf course there have to be parts of the book that aren t straight up in joke references to New Orleans otherwise she d have an audience of a half million at most The first third of the book was white hot and I couldn t put it down but it slowed in the later sections It was never bad by any stretch and I really appreciated the uestions that she brought up and wisely left unresolved The book isn t an examination of every facet of a world changed by man made immortality it s a spotlight on one man s struggle through the world that s been created for him
