The Rail City was originally published on as the first part of The Rail City Chronicles It's currently been taken off the market in anticipation of a major new edition completely rewr. There are books composed of short declarative sentence subject object verb that tell a tale with a minimum of reader interaction smooth uick and unperturbing prose There are other books that seem to have identity crises Am I poetry or am I prose Still too there are books that wander seemingly at random until on page xxx the whole point of the novel is revealed xxu pages later than it could have been Gravity s Rainbow anyone I love Thomas Pynchon s stories by the wayThe Rail City falls somewhere between the second and third examples above The book reads like its prose wants to burst into free verse It reads like manga without the picturesHonestly the first page feels like it is trying too hard to be hip However after the introduction the story opens up a bit the flamboyant sentence structure tones down and the narrative focuses and focuses well into an entertaining story of a landscape both like and disturbingly unlike our own Characters are often introduced completely without preamble or explanation and leave similarly but this flows well with the sometimes staccato like nature of the storyPregnant girl Kesuk view spoilerInexplicably the mother of twin demons hide spoiler

The Rail City

Technically published read and reviewed by a select few The author is taking advantage of the electronic medium to respond to the wishes and criticisms of his readers for whom he writ. Rail City The Dying Sun sounded really intriguing when I read the synopsis It grabs you and makes you believe that this book will be full of awesome Unfortunately this is not the caseJohn s writing was rather amazing At times it was poetic in its descriptions and full of crystal clear imagery and at others completely mind bogglingly vague I have yet to see another author get it both so right and so wrong in the same book in the same chapter and even in the same paragraphThere was a lot of repetitive words the windows were forever undressed and at the beginning I thought I might die of overuse of similies and metaphors Only two or three in each paragraph for the first chapter or so just a fewI loved the ideas in the story the demonkind the forced slavery the breaking it was very intriguing I liked the magical elements to the demon nature and how they interacted with the people It was both gut wrenchingly horrible and yet thought provoking too I would love to see some art work based on these charactersHiromi was a complex character and one that I wanted to get to know I didn t really like Sura and I found the introduction to most of the other characters was too uick a lot of prior knowledge seemed to be agiven I did like the guy in the red kimono except that he was forever being described as hawk like which got repetitive and annoyingSome of the scenes could do with a bit structure grounding in location as I felt sometimes that the story was being told and the scene could be interchangable Also some sort of timeframe would have helped to make the story seem a bit real too I wasn t sure how long days were or nights time seemed to be almost unimportantI may be a bit thick but it took me until about 50% through the book to understand that they were on a giant train I should have picked that up from the title and the cover but on my kindle I don t see the cover This only caused for my concept of where this was happening to be even further off Perhaps a bit of a clear introduction to Rail City would have helped avoid this confusionAn interesting story but rather disjointed and confusingNote I was provided an electronic copy of the book in return for an honest review

Itten with all new art and will be rereleased under the anticipated title The Rail City Because there was never a print edition this particular edition no longer exists though it was. Please note I have received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a review The Rail City was one of those books that I couldn t decide whether to give it 3 or 4 starsOn the one hand I absolutely loved the plot The beginning seuence uickly pulled me in and kept me wanting to know about the characters Visuals were nicely done and uite surprised me by its level of creativity However one ualm that I had regarding the visuals was that it did get uite repetitive when describing some of the clothing Unfortunately the writing threw me off on than one occasion At times the author had what I like to call a lyrical writing structure but it kept getting destroyed by short and harsh sentences I often found myself having to re read a segment in order to understand exactly what was going onI highly recommend The Rail City for those who are looking for something a little different to spice up their library
