Julian May s first book in the The Galactic Milieu Trilogy , chronicles the epic tale of Jack AKA Jon or Ti Jean Remillard s amazing development from foetus in his mother s womb to a young boy, and Marc, his older brother, and Uncle Rogi s desperate struggle to keep him aliveThis is a fantastic story lined with sub plots that keep you guessing to the end Julian May develops the main characters well, so that you believe in despite their almost unbelievable powers and feel for them As in the previous review, Uncle Rogi is perhaps my favourite character, possibly because he is a relatively ordinary man for the times , thrust into the middle of the adventure and is often part of history changing events.
Some people may find Jack the Bodiless a little heavy goi Intelligent , rivetingstunning series of books Can t believe I had never heard of these until a few months ago Were recommended to me by a friend I read the first and bought the rest and the next series too Julian May is an exceptional author Cannot rate these books highly enough.
My copy of this book bought years ago has been read to pieces and to get it onto my Kindle with all the others in the Saga of the Exiles series is wonderful My belief is that Intervention should be read before this one so that you get an idea of the background of the characters either here or referred to in the history of the Saga are This is a bit nit pickly but it is worth it so that the whole series rolls out in all its expansive glory.
I read the Saga of the Exiles in the late 80s and have re read 30years later May s vision of the future with rho craft, domestic cold fusion regen tanks and no internet nor smartphones shows us how technology takes some interesting twists and turns.
And,of course, operancy that May considered exciting new field of science in the 70 s and 80 s came to noughtDESPITE that, she writes well, with strong character and a healthy pace.
I enjoyed reading her books in my teens and I have enjoyed them in middle age Please invent Regen Tanks so I can enjoy them again in another 50 years ✓ Jack the Bodiless (The Galactic Milieu Trilogy Book 1) ✓ Reading at times like a thriller, at others like a horror story, with the foreknowledge of the end that is obtained from reading the proceeding novels, this book carries the reader deep into the genesis of Marx s eventual rebellion and his convoluted family relationships.
