This book is crazy, I’m not sure what’s going on but I’m enjoying it. Just like in Casanova, Fraction knows that the reader may not totally understand, but they’ll still be willing to hang on for the ride. I wonder what the deal is with the silent Prester dude? And what does he have to do with Omega: The Unknown? The mysteries and plot threads of this book just keep building and building. One thing that’s note-worthy here is the number of different narration techniques Fraction is using, we’ve got a 3rd-person omniscient narrator, and then we gave 1st person stuff from the Defenders, and then there’s the weird narration of the Presters. I wonder why he’s using so many, can he not just make up his mind? Or is he going for a sensory overload? Or is he trying to channel the 1970s era this book hearkens to and also have modern style too? Hmmm. Have your bronze-age cake and eat it.
