Red Rising reader Ô doc 9786053435532 ¸ Pierce Brown ¸ Ben dünyaları ateşe verecek kıvılcımım Ben zincirleri kıracak çekicim Ben halkımın ve esaret içinde yaşayan herkesin umuduyum Çünkü biliyorum ki insan kendini köleleştiren adaletsizlikle özgürleşemez Gelecekte renk kodlarına göre sınıflarBen dünyaları ateşe verecek kıvılcımım Ben zincirleri kıracak çekicim Ben halkımın ve esaret içinde yaşayan herkesin umuduyum Çünkü biliyorum ki insan kendini köleleştiren adaletsizlikle özgürleşemez Gelecekte renk kodlarına göre sınıflara ayrılmış Toplum'un en alt sınıfını Kızıllar oluşturmaktadır Diğer bütün Kızıllar gibi Darrow da Mars'ı yeni nesiller için yaş Actual rating 25 “Darrow Come here Come” He grabs my shoulder and pulls me in “Others may have failed But you’ll be different Darrow I feel it in my bones” I'm sorry was I supposed to feel something?I suppose boredom is a feeling Not a single tear was shed Not for a single instance was a single emotion heightened It was by no means a bad book but the message got lost in the telling and there is just So Much Telling The writing is fantastic but the plot just didn't work for me I was bored out of my mind for much of the bookThis book tries to be grand It tries really really hard to make a lofty awe inspiring political message It read like a rousing Communist propaganda the sort that would get a crowd of common men fired up ready to launch an uprising to bring down the almighty ruling class that has long oppressed themWait this book is trying to make a political message? Something about freeing the oppressed? What the fuck? No It is a story about how Darrow is better than everyone else at everything because he is The One His life is saved by the act of God or shall I say the act of deus ex fucking machina every single fucking timeIt wants to be the story of a common laborer a sheep one who is content with his hard working life who is proud of the products of his toil because it supposedly means something Darrow is the Everyman the ordinary worker the common man to whom we all can relate NotIf Darrow were a female I would not hesitate for one millisecond to slap a Mary Sue label on him He is bloodydamn perfect An Everyman he is not The common man he is not Average he is most definitely not Fine Darrow is meant to be perfect because he's the SYMBOL OF HIS PEOPLE He's so fucking special He was plucked from the mires of obscurity to save his peopleHis perfection raises a lot of uestion and this book left me largely unsatisfiedThe BadDarrow The main character is Darrow and he is so perfect as to be improbable unrealistic and completely unbelievableMeet DarrowHe is a 16 year old worker He toils A life of hardship is all he has ever known He is a Red the lowest social class the dregs of society He is an uneducated minor and a miner I make no apologies for the pun I've been waiting to ues that one for ages As the mad scientist who has been told to turn Darrow into a Gold says Say we make his body perfect there’s still one problem we cannot make him smarter One cannot make a mouse a lion” That's right Darrow is not stupid but he is uneducated He has not had the privilege of a life's worth of highly selective education His body is hard strong but unhoned in warAnd he dares compete against the Golds the highest echelon of Society The strongest the most powerful the most intelligentOnly Darrow dares And he succeeds beyond anyone's wildest imagination He is so fucking perfect and I hate him for it Despite a complete lack of education he is brilliant Just fucking brilliant I don’t know the math but I know the pattern I solve it and four puzzles then it changes once in my hands becoming a circle Mickey’s eyes widen I complete the circle’s puzzles and then toss him back the device He stares at my hands while working his own twelve fingers“Impossible” he murmurs He succeeds at everything Lack of knowledge? Fuck that shit just drink a fucking INTELLIGENCE TONIC AND BOOM INSTANT GENIUS Before I sleep I drink a tonic laden with processing enhancers and speed listen to The Colors The Iliad Ulysses Metamorphosis the Theban plays The Draconic Labels and restricted works like The Count of Monte Cristo Lord of the Flies Lady Casterly’s Penance 1984 and The Great Gatsby I wake knowing three thousand years of literature and legal code and history Where was that stuff when I was cramming for my finals in school? |Which begs the uestion if Darrow can be artificially enhanced like that why hasn't everyone else? What makes Darrow so special that his artificial physical and mental enhancements haven't been used to make the actual Golds better than they are?It doesn't workThe Plot It just plods on and on and on There was not a whole lot of bad in this book except for the fact that the message got lost along the way and it was so incredibly boring My friends promised me it would get better at the 15% mark They promised me it would get better at the 30% mark I just kept waiting and waiting and waiting and things never really inproved The first 15% of the book had my head spinning as we are introduced to the immensely boring and confusing world building The next 20% was better because hey Darrow got ripped apart and put back together The rest of the book was like The Hunger Games in that you pitch a ton of elite students together in to a Lord of the Flies scenario until one emerges victoriousMaybe The message got somewhat lost in between the whole Hunger Game survival scenario at a leadership training school the Insitute My name three bars beside it now floats nearer the Primus handCassius has risen tooBut there can be only one Primus There's the hardship of survival the fight to be the victorthe um battle against pimples? People remain hungry because we’ve yet to build a fire in the castle and hygiene is uickly forgotten when two of our girls are snatched up by Ceres horsemen as they bathe in the river just beneath our gate The Golds are confused when even their fine pores begin clogging and they gain pimples Seriously I can't even tell you what the latter 25% of the book was about because it was such a confusing boring messThe GoodThe Setting I thought this was well done despite the massive amount of infodumping without definition If you want sci fi you got it The reader is instantly immersed into the world on Mars the underground the mining worldThere is a tremendous amount of terms that the reader doesn't know at first The good is that the book doesn't try to spoon feed its readers The bad is that OH MY GOD SO MANY TERMS WHAT THE HELL DOES IT ALL MEAN? The first 10% of the book had my head in a tailspinFrysuit helldiver Tinpots clawDrill scanCrew headTalk randomlyCapitalizedWords etc It was tremendously confusingThe good is that the setting is eventually explained The system of castes on Mars based on colors is explained and about damn time too The Gray soldiers prowl the cities ensuring order ensuring obedience to the hierarchy The Whites arbitrate their justice and push their philosophy Pinks pleasure and serve in highColor homes Silvers count and manipulate currency and logistics Yellows study the medicines and sciences Greens develop technology Blues navigate the stars Coppers run the bureaucracy Every Color has a purpose Every Color props up the Golds The technology is slowly revealed to us The reader has to WORK in order to understand the setting I like that the background of the book is incorporated into the story there is no stupid Once Upon a Time blah blah blah shit type of dystopian background building hereThe fact that the book takes such an easy view of randomly killing off its elite citizens was well explained too I usually take offense at random killing of your best and brightest but I have to admit that this book gave me an adeuate explanation “And you may think it a waste of good Golds but you’re an idiot if you think fifty children make a dent in our numbers There are than one million Golds on Mars More than one hundred million in the Solar System Not all get to be Peerless Scarred though eh? Darrow's Physical Transformation My Fair Lady to the fucking EXTREME man Darrow is a Red He is trying to be a Gold in order to achieve that he has to undergo a very far out sci fi transformation process Bones are rebuilt Skin is peeled off Synapses are formed There is a TON of blood and pain It is fucking awesome The agony is beyond language or comprehension I watch videos of it afterwards to distract me from the residual pain He uses a vibroScalpel to slice the flesh of my thigh down the middle He parts my muscle and skin with clamps to expose the bones of my legs Then he peels off layers of the bone with a bonepeeler and paints new layers with his improved bone recipe“Someone has to dot God’s i’s” The Political Message This is meant to be a political parable and it does it uite well I could select one of a thousand sentences in this book and plaster it onto a Communist propaganda where it would fit in place perfectly The political message in this book is loud clear and well done I said this was a rousing book and it was The message of ineuality is so clear here The struggles of the Reds are well depicted You can clearly see the injustice the betrayal the deceit and I understand the hunger that Darrow felt and his desperation to make things right for his people “This is our bloodydamn planet”“Through sweat and toil it was made so” he agrees“Then what will it take to take it back?”“Blood” An ambitious book and one that many of my friends have lovedIt just didn't do the job for me

Pierce Brown ä Red Rising book

Anılır bir gezegen haline getirdikleri inancıyla günlerini madenlerde çalışarak geçirmektedir Üstelik bunu severek ve isteyerek yapmakta kanı ve teriyle çocuklarına daha iyi bir dünya bırakacağına inanmaktadırAncak Kızıllar kandırılmıştır Darrow halkının yozlaşmış yönetici sınıfın kölesinden başka bir şey olmadığını keşfettiğinde adalet özlemi ve kaybettiği aşk? Minor spoilers follow Red Rising introduces us to Darrow a sixteen year old miner who toils deep in the mines of Mars a few hundred years in the future In Darrow's world humanity has spread across the solar system and has been organized into a strict caste system of colors with Gold at the top and Red at the bottom Darrow is a Red but he is making the most of his hard life in the mines He is good at his work He has a beautiful wife Eo they get married young and die young down in the mines and though the Reds live in abject poverty they are a proud tough clan They appreciate songs and drink and family They also hold on to the idea that they are sacrificing for the good of humanity at large They have been told that they are pioneers on Mars making the planet habitable through their hard lives mining helium 3 and some day the surface of the planet will be able to support life thanks to their efforts Some day the other colors will join them on MarsThen Darrow's life is shattered when he and his wife are arrested for trespassing in a garden that is restricted to the Bronze administrators Soon Darrow finds himself alone bereft and marked for execution He is plucked from the jaws of death by a resistance group known as the Sons of Ares who show him the Big Lie of his existence the surface of Mars is actually already inhabited The other colors have formed great cities and are allowing the Reds to keep toiling as slaves while the Golds and their minion classes live lives of relative ease The Sons of Ares have a plan for Darrow because of his dexterity constitution and uick mind he is just the right double agent they need Using advanced genetic manipulation they will make Darrow a Gold and send him to infiltrate the Institute the training academy which produces all the top leaders of the Society that controls the solar system Darrow's job is to rise as high as he can within the Gold ranks so he can assist the Sons of Ares in their eventual revolution The only problem Darrow first has to survive the InstituteI found Red Rising absolutely compelling I tore through the book and am anxious to read the next two books in the trilogy You will recognize many ingredients from other YAfantasy series The tone especially at first reminded me of Patrick Ness' The Knife of Never Letting Go The big discovery of society's true nature was reminiscent of the Matrix The caste system is like Divergent The Institute sorts its students into houses like Harry Potter The cutthroat competitions among the Golds is very like The Hunger Games And the nature of the training is described as a year long deadly game of capture the flag in which the houses all named after Roman gods fight one another while the proctors float about them and watch from a levitating mountain called Olympus That too seemed oddly familiar And yet Red Rising is than the sum of its parts Pierce Brown manages to craft all these elements into something new something believable and exciting I couldn't help getting swept away in Darrow's story as we follow him from the lowly life of a miner to the very heights of Olympus literally wondering along the way if his secret identity will be discovered or if he will 'go Gold' and forget his rebel benefactors and his mission The book is satisfying in itself but it leaves a lot of tantalizing uestions for the second volume which I have already started reading If you like YA adventures like the ones mentioned above this is definitely a book you should check out
