    One thought on “Caldé of the Long Sun”

    1. I think this is where the books of the Long Sun really start to fall apart for me Up to this point I can take the amount of Patera Silk that Wolfe is dishing out, but Calde presents me with a brick wall Wolfe has an annoying habit in most all of his books of presenting mundane aspects of his characters lives in nauseating detail and then completely skipping over the fun stuff basically any battles, action bits, or really important and revealing conversations and then referring to them second han [...]

    2. Giving the book two stars seems to be a bit unfair considering how I actually feel about it, but going by Goodread s words for two stars It was OK I d have to stick by it I gave the second volume of this series three stars and liked this one slightly less I still am enjoying Wolfe s created world and his style, and will see this one through to the end I found this volume to be a lot disconnected and confusing, and many of the character situations and motivations questionable There were many ti [...]

    3. wellp there s another one of these, and many prequels, and many parallells i had no idea nor did i have any idea that gene wolfe was such a big deal redwall, but like dark and spacey, humans aliens and then i learned about the larger universe this all exists within and it makes a lot sense this is gene wolfe wearing a redwall mask interested to read the prequels and understand the cosmology better sci fi d aulaire s well i guess i hope so this quatrad quadrilogy starts out in redwall and shit g [...]

    4. Well that was unnecessary Nothing really happened in those, almost, 300 pages While the previous two books of the series were great this one was, in some parts, unbearable those damn tunnels The good news is that the fourth book seems to be into the direction of the first and second book Hooray

    5. As full scale rebellion finally breaks out in Viron, incited by another dramatic theophany from Echidna, mother of the gods Patera Silk reluctantly accepts the position of Calde and immediately becomes both the rallying point for the beleaguered citizens and the target of various foes, both from within and outside of the city Wanting only peace as always, Silk learns that, incredibly, the father of the gods and maker of the Whorl, Pas, is in fact dead, killed by his own family a generation ago, [...]

    6. Complicated, and puts a lot of onus on the reader to unravel what is happening, but well worth sticking with Book 3 of 4, looking forward to the last one

    7. I have slowly been reworking my way through the four volumes of The Book of the Long Sun, just finished the third volume this week, Calde of the Long Sun Despite having read this twice now and spent some time looking on the internet I still don t know where the word Calde comes from the closest I could find on the internet was a reference to Calde Verde, which means Green Soup As is often the case with Wolfe, I don t know if he is inventing words or just re invigorating really obscure old words [...]

    8. Aunque me estoy poniendo a escribir esto, no s si mi opini n sobre este libro vale la pena En alg n punto perd el inter s y empec a leer de forma desganada, y dejando y retomando el libro varias veces S que los libros de Wolfe est n llenos de secretos, pero cuando no encontr s ninguna fascinaci n o emoci n en el p gina a p gina, es dif cil dedicarle mucha reflexi n a lo que est s leyendo En este libro Wolfe parece haber llegado a ese punto en sus sagas donde pierde foco en el protagonista y empi [...]

    9. This was a re read and I upped the rating to 5 stars Like all other Wolfe books, there s so much to be absorbed that it s almost impossible to get it all on a first reading This, being the third of the Long Sun tetralogy, further deepens the world of the massive starship that is home to the priest Silk and the other brilliant characters Everything expands as Silk s home city threatens to rip itself apart through political coups and social unrest spurred on by the gods of their world, who make oc [...]

    10. Gene Wolfe really knows how to write boring bits There s a section of Cald of the Long Sun in which Auk and Chenille and a few other characters are wandering about the underground caves that lie beneath the whorl, and nothing happens Well, except for a plethora of aimless dialogue And some characters wander off and get lost, and then found again The mechanisms and motivations here are often murky That, said, most of this third novel of the Book of the Long Sun is great, perhaps the best so far W [...]

    11. Calde was a hard slog, and I m not really sure why Sometime in the last weeks of December I just stopped reading I found myself doing other things on the bus listening to my ever growing backlog of This American Life, or playing iPod games, or nothing I rarely ate out alone, so that time for reading was gone as well Today I finished the book off, and I have little enthusiasm for proceeding to the next, so I m going to take a break from the series and read the book of Harry Dresden short stories [...]

    12. started reading the fourth volume in the Long Sun Series It s even better than I remember Definitely his most accessible four volume epic novel lder part of the review Gene Wolfe s Nightside the Long Sun launched the magisterial four volume The Book of the Long Sun Now the great tale continues in Cald of the Long Sun The young, god inspired Silk, caught in a bloody web of politics and revolution, must fight against the machinations of the shadowy group that rules the city of Viron The forces of [...]

    13. The third in The Book of The Long Sun, this is definitely not a stand alone book it picks up right in the middle of the story That story continues to be excellent, however, I have to say, that although I am generally not a fan of talking animals at all, Patera Silk s pet bird, Oreb, really makes these books I just love him.In this book, the humble priest, Patera Silk, reluctantly accepts the people s acclaim and becomes the focus of a general rebellion aimed at making him Cald , or ruler of his [...]

    14. Another step closer to the end of Silk s journey, or so it seems Too many paths to consider all of them as essential to the story of Silk, or Calde as he is becoming Theophanies abound throughout Viron Silk meets or becomes his maker, too hard to know for sure, but certainly an introduction by way of incedental burial In other words, Wolfe being Wolfe I can hardly wait to begin the final chapter of this Long Sun series.

    15. I inhaled this book At this point, I don t know what else to say about Wolfe s prose, his masterful pacing neither too introspective nor too action heavy, but coming out with a superb balance , or his deft handling of human encounters with doubt, the sublime, or the incomprehensible Wow Next book, please.

    16. Dissapointed, but only because this one focusses on The Battle and nothing really important happens Military sci fi is not my cup of tea so you ll be a better judge than me on this one The way I see it this one is a transition book in the series.I d have given it the fourth star only for the last chapter, which is very good, but I d be lying to myself 6 out of 10 is enough.

    17. For me this series gets a bit dark and some of the story threads are not so enjoyable as in the first 2 books Characters with annoying speech patterns, endless roaming about in tunnels, just not as fun I still love it though, and am happy to be rereading it.

    18. Reread January 2018 So complex, so insane No matter how many times I read this, I always learn something new Reread September 2011.

    19. Same political struggle continued as in previous book Some new technological details and history were revealed, but the story progression did not catch my interest.

    20. The multiple points of view seem natural by the time you get to this book, so you can fully enjoy Wolfe s excellent use of language and careful storytelling here.
