Max Gladstone",“This is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar, Max Gladstone
The strangest and most refreshing sci-fi thing I’ve read this year. Who knew that time traveling agents could weave such a poetic love story as the word burns, and gets built up around them. This book is short enough and beautiful enough that I think I could stand to re-read it.
I love the poetry of time travel with the imagery of time as a thread and the agents, Red & Blue, going upthread, or downthread, snipping different stands or tying them together. I love the way they skip through time through history trying to bend history to the vision of their warring factions. This book is just beautiful.
It’s not at all what I expected and that’s a good thing.
