review Voice of the Fire

Voice of the Fire Free download ´ 7 Master storyteller Alan Moore Watchmen delivers twelve interconnected stories of lust madness and ectasy all set in central England and spanning over six thousand years the narratives woven together in patterns of recurring events strange traditions and uncanny visions First a cave boy loses his mother falls in love and learns a deadly lesson He is followed by an extraordinary cast of characters a mur. Where to start with this incredible book I have just tried and failed three times to start this sentence I sit here drained after a day of university work hard thinking and slow research and two pots of tea drinking a gin and tonic and trying to recall the feeling of reading Moore s unbelievably ambitious novel I guess I ll begin at the beginning but not at Neil Gaiman s introduction I ll save that for laterThe first chapter is incredibly hard to read written in the first person from the perspective of a 4000BC idiot boy He speaks about the world around him his people his mother his dreams all in the absolute present tense in an extremely simple vocabulary that is hard to fathom for uite a few pages I could liken it to trying to get in the mindset of a book like Trainspotting or A Clockwork Orange but that would be doing this book an injustice in my personal opinion anyway Once I had gotten over the initial difficulty the power of Moore s writing took hold and swept me along with his lost boy although I will admit to a certain amount of checking how many pages til the next chapter please You should know that none of the stories Moore has chosen to tell the story of Northampton have happy endings right off the bat although this story probably has the most shocking ending of all and if you make it through this one you ll be fine By the second chapter you re well and truly immersed in this world but at least now you re behind the eyes of someone who can speak and think with clarity and cunning One of the most fascinating things for me was the way Moore interpreted human interaction in a time before recorded history we re at 2500BC now there are no words for the number of things and people will say something like as many houses burnt down as there are talons on an owl s foot In this time from the perspective of a woman who s fallen on hard times and become a hardened criminal the idiot boy s tale has become fable myth part of the religion of the area and this is a theme that will crop up again and again a thread running through the book that the reader can grasp onto It was in this chapter that I noticed Moore s prose the way that every sentence fits a rhythm and a beat and could almost be read as poetry It becomes mesmerising to the point where I almost stopped paying attention to the story being told as I let the words run through my headThe first two chapters are much longer than any of the others which is a way was disappointing to me I ve never much liked the short story format because I feel like I just get inside a character when I have to start learning a new one The long first chapters stabilised the book and got me so invested that it was a shock when the next ones were significantly shorter Probably my least favourite chapter was Limping to Jerusalem something about the voice and the experiences of the protagonist of that one just didn t get through to me in the time I particularly enjoyed the stories involving the practice of magic and ritual by women inciting the spirits of some of the characters we followed earlier on in the book I don t think I m doing this justice at all I can t even begin to explain how lyrical and mesmerising this book is how incredible the history of the place is how much you feel the connection to the land and its stories and its people and how much you feel how horrifying all that history is weighing down on people I felt so strongly about this book I had to create a new bookshelf for it The worst part for me was Neil Gaiman s introduction That man really irritates me does he do anything these days except write introductions to other people s wonderful and original work and pretend that he knew about them first Maybe he s found his calling though and we won t have to put up with any sophomoric adult urban fantasy books from him for a while Either way I could have done without his wanky prologue Do not trust the tales or the town or even the man who tells the tales Trust only the voice of the fire Honestly Reasons I truly loved and engaged with this book Deep and fascinating history followed logically and mythologically through thousands of years Essentially like One Day but on a massive epic scale And you know good The excellent character drawing and the uniue and wonderful voices The feeling that there is to life to things than just plain humanity Black dogs legs heads all these recurring themes that play around the crossroads of Northampton s history witchcraft and Hob men and angels and saints The fact that in the end Moore s first novel is unlike any other novel ever Something about his art up until then and the transformation of graphic novel writing into novel writing translates into something daring and unprecedented This is a rambling nonsensical review I m tired and drained and I don t think I could ever have done this book justice so I ll just post it as is Posterity and all that

Voice of the Fire Free download ´ 7 Deress who impersonates her victim; a fisherman who believes he has become a different species; a Roman emissary who realizes the bitter truth about the Empire; a crippled nun who is healed miraculously by a disturbing apparition; an old crusader whose faith is destroyed by witnessing the ultimate relic; two witches lovers who burn at the stake Each related tale traces a path in a journey of discovery. Moore does for Northampton what he did for London in From Hell He draws an arcane map of his hometown accreting layer upon layer of time and circumstance The book is composed of twelve stories starting in 4000 BCE and ending in 1995 One of the tricks Moore uses in his work is proving connections between disparate things by using repeated themes Here as in From Hell he uses actual historical figures for the most part as his characters Or at least actual architectural and other artifacts of Northampton And a bit of research on the internet tells me that the historical figures are indeed connected by the themes as Moore suggestsHis thesis is that there s an active accessible underworld that can be accessed if we only knew the symbols and could whisper the angel language The repeated symbols include the antlered witch man lame or missing legs decapitated heads monstrous dogs a whispered unearthly language men with multiple wives and fire Moore is a self described magician not an illusionist but an honest to Baphomet sorcerer and he closes the book with he himself performing a ritualReaders who like experimental prose will enjoy deciphering the first chapter which is told in the voice of a mentally challenged prehistoric boy The boy s language is composed of a narrow vocabulary of simple words but you ll be surprised how much it conveys That first chapter is a bravura writing performanceThis book has whetted my appetite for and may in fact be a primer for Moore s upcoming second novel about Northampton Jerusalem which is due to come out later this yearI m docking it one star because brilliant as he is sometimes Moore s show offy prose style is too self conscious Sometimes he needs to get out of his own way

This book took me a little longer than I thought to read but it s Alan Moore Moore isn t a walk in the park For example the first chapter Oh God the first chapter It s not an easy read However have the first chapter it becomes easier to read Don t let the first chapter discourage you fro reading the rest of this book Voice of the Fire is a a novel set up similarly to Joyce s Dubliners While the stories don t really connect they are all in first person and they are all set in Northampton England The main difference with the stories is the years they are told in form 4000 BC AD 1995 There are 12 stories in all ending with a semi autobiographical segmentOne thing I like about this is the writing I m only familiar with Alan Moore s comic books This is the first non comic book I read I was interesting to see how he could write without panels There are some photos here and there but this is most just words Than again Alan Moore s comic can get wordy for a comic book I thought he could pull it off This kind of reminds me of a few postmodern writersIf you like Alan Moore I would check this out
