Could it be that I'm just a little bit in love with John Crowley's writing Well most probably I amAs with everything else by him that I've read so far This book isn't for everyone But I guess folks who got discouraged by the slowliness of his famous novel Little Big but nevertheless enjoyed his poetic style should go for Engine Summer Here is much going on in less than half the amount of pages and it still possess the same dreamlike uality that marks Little BigThe story takes place in a postapocalyptic world roughly 1000 years after the war that destroyed known societies and follows Rush that Speaks' journey from his home enclave into the strange world outside to either become a saint or find his lost love who went away with a group of traders Bit by bit he understands about humanity's history as he encounters people who chose other ways of life than the community he was born intoEngine Summer is a coming of age story that completely manages without zombies tribal wars or other genre typical adversaries It is a journey of the mind written in the awesome prose of one of the poets of speculative fiction sprinkled with subtle hints for the reader to discover together with Rush along the way

Born into the community of Truthful Speakers one thousand years after the Storm he was raised on stories of the old days a world filled with s. Fey muted beautiful The story of Rush that speaks is a bildungsroman that will haunt you long after you have read the last page The story follows the charming and inuisitive Rush as he grows up in his enclave of 'True Speakers' one of the few groups of humanity left after an apocalypse has destroyed most of civilization It then follows him as he ventures out into the world to see what strangeness it may offer and in the hopes of finding his lost loveDon't expect to find the mutant zombies or flesh eating reavers of many other post apocalyptic stories Instead prepare to see with Rush the melancholy remnants of our society given new strangeness and wonder when viewed through his eyes Tied to this are the strange people we meet; those who survived the cataclysm and continued to live their lives forever changed by the harsh reality of the end of civilization The ways in which these groups choose to meet the challenges presented by this world mark each of them in significant ways and as Rush witnesses these things he is changed by them becoming both and less than he was when he started his journey This is one of my very favourites by Crowley I seem to prefer his early work to his later and I highly recommend it to any and allEdit June 1212 Upon reflection I think I have to give this one five stars

John Crowley ✓ 6 Summary

Engine SummerArns much Taken into the society of Dr Boots's List attached to the old mysteries Rush grows closer to a sainthood he could never have imagine. A book that is as elusive and ethereal as a dream it left me with a sense of something profound and beautiful and sad painted in greys and blues Engine Summer says a whole heap about how a culture is built on the stories it tells itself where myths come from and how they tell us who we are It is post apocalyptic but also kind of hippie utopian told in a rich mapley voice the writing actually reminded me a bit of Tom Spanbauer and full of unexpected little touches and lush dreamy visuals which are oh so pretty This was such a genius novel I'm gonna be all over John Crowley like a bad rash
