The Chronoliths by Robert Charles Wilson

Filed under: Uncategorized — Daniel @ 3:08 pm

Maybe I’m too easily impressed by mumbo jumbo or this really is deep, but the passage that stood out to me the most while reading the Chronoliths was the one about how if you viewed World War II in reverse it took on an entirely different morality.  First, the US signed a treaty with Japan and then bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima.  Then, Nazi’s pulled bullets out of the heads of emaciated Jews and nursed them back to health.  That idea messed with me.  I want to say though, that I really liked Chronoliths and I like Robert Charles Wilson.  The only other book I have read of his was Spin but as soon as Axis comes out in paperback I am going to get it.  I had to stop myself from buying his entire back catalog this weekend because I don’t have time to read it anyway.
