Earthquake Weather
Friday, May 12, 2006

Tim Powers has a quirky imagination that loves to connect the un-connectable and distort the usual interpretation of reality. I read the Anubis Gate several years ago and loved it. For some reason, I didn't pick up any other Power's books until last week. Earthquake Weather mixes science, the occult and several thousand plot twists into a tale of the Fisher King, Dionysus, Psychiatry, Multiple Personality Disorder, Ghosts and love. It's not a book for the faint hearted; you'll have to stay awake to follow the contortions and add in an extra helping of suspended disbelief. It's also not a book that will leave you thinking you better understand the universe or yourself. It is, however, a playful romp though the imagination and a heck of a lot of fun.
