Like everything by Blaylock, unlike anything I've ever read. This one teases to the very end.,but the journey is fun ( )

So this started off slow but then got better and better as I got to know the characters and understand what was happening. When I read the back blurb I really thought that the characters were going to be immersed in a world like Pellucidar but instead it ended up being a bunch of crazy old men running around trying to solve mysteries and save the world.

It's reminiscent of "Cloud Atlas" though I've only seen the movie so I'm not sure how the book handled the "senior citizen revolt" and obviously this came out way before Cloud Atlas.

I REALLY loved the cover art on my paperback and now I'm disappointed to find that the hardcovers have other (lesser) art. It just has that kind of Norman Rockwell on acid vibe that EXACTLY fits the tone of the book. ( )

Fabulous ideas, beautiful writing, bloodless characters. Except for the paranoid man none of them seemed to have strong emotions, didn't react to the strange events around them. And even in the context of the story the stuff was still strange. Nobody to care about, didn't finish. ( )

Another amazing book by Blaylock. I was into Powers before Blaylock, and missed out on some of Blaylock’s earlier books, including The Digging Leviathan. Luckily, Babbage Press has been reprinting some of Blaylock’s older books in reasonably nice trade paperback editions (and they’re planning to do some of Powers’s works, too).

Anyway, the book: Most of this book takes place in modern day Los Angeles. It deals with the attempts of a typically odd group of amateur scientists to find a way into the interior of the earth by exploring deep tide pools. They are opposed by an assortment of scientists, psychiatrists, and even, at times, by the poet William Ashbless.

This book is clearly and strongly tied to Homunculus, with descendants of some of those characters appearing in Leviathan. It’s also tied to Powers’s The Anubis Gates through Ashbless, who appears to have survived until the events of the story. (There’s also a brief reference to Brendan Doyle and Steerforth Benner, characters from The Anubis Gates.)

I’ve yet to read a Blaylock or Powers book or story that I haven’t liked, and Leviathan is no exception. I can often strongly identify with Blaylock’s characters, if not their situations, and the quirks of these characters are in line with those in other Blaylock books. ( )

"-from the negative point of view, I flatter myself this volume has a certain stamp. Although it runs to considerably upwards of two hundred pages, it contains not a single reference to the imbecility of God's Universe, nor so much as a single hint that I could have made a better one myself. I really do not know where my head can have been. I seem to have forgotten all that makes it glorious to be a man. 'Tis an omission that renders the book philosophically unimportant; but I am in hopes the eccentricity may please in frivolous circles."
--ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON An Inland Voyage
Man's a strange animal, and makes strange use
Of his own nature, and the various arts,
And likes particularly to produce
Some new experiment to show his parts;
This is the age of oddities let loose,
Where differing talents find their different marts;
You'd best begin with truth, and when you've lost your
Labour, there's a sure market for imposture.
--Lord Byron
Don Juan
