    PDF Michael Flynn ☆ ☆ Eifelheim MOBI ¼ eifelheim pdf, Eifelheim MOBIAn interesting take on the First Contact story This one takes place in the Middle Ages as an alien ship crash lands in the Black Forest of Germany near the small village of Oberhochwald Tied in to this tale of the past is one that takes place in the present as two researchers and lovers try to solve the mystery of the disappearance of the village of Eifelheim once called Oberhochwald from recorded history and the implications this may have on their separate fields of study I found the tale in the past to be the compelling of the two though they do work well together as a whole Flynn does an excellent job of bringing to life a realistic Middle Ages that doesn't look sneeringly down on the superstitious savages of that age All of the characte

    PDF Michael Flynn ☆ ☆ Eifelheim MOBI ¼ eifelheim pdf, Eifelheim MOBIIn all fairness I ought to give one or two stars to this novel for the following reasonsThe sheer amount of research put into the novel to make a complete picture of a small medieval German town and it's surrounding politics not to mention the great walk on parts of Occam and the peripheral references to Roger Bacon made the novel a true tour de forceMr Flynn's well thought out idea behind hyperspace was explored uite thoroughly and also deserves much praiseEven the basic premise behind the novel where chivalrous knights meet grasshopper aliens where priests are successful in converting bug eyed aliens to christ and a humanistic treatise on the nature of charity applied eually to the alien and the human during the horrible times of the Black Plague made the novel shineWhy I am not giving the novel a

    PDF Michael Flynn ☆ ☆ Eifelheim MOBI ¼ eifelheim pdf, Eifelheim MOBIFirst of all a shout out of thanks to Ceridwen who in reviewing this book on Goodreads introduced it to me It was a great review BTW and you should read it too We don’t often talk of the minor characters in novels the walk on parts with a few lines and no names I think for this review I just want to focus on two side characters They are not terribly important but their stories and the different trajectories they take lend added resonance to the main story Julie Cao is a researcher and librarian She comes into the story when Tom Schwoerin shows up in her library t

    PDF Michael Flynn ☆ ☆ Eifelheim MOBI ¼ eifelheim pdf, Eifelheim MOBIEifelhiem is vaguely reminiscent of Connie Willis and is also similar to the writing style of Geraldine Brooks One of the best parts of this story is the description of medieval philosophy mixing with contact with an alien race Like Alienation and Peter Jackson’s film District 9 and I imagine that Flynn’s aliens resemble the District 9 prawns somewhat the author also creates an allegory to examine and explore xenophobia in all its forms This is a good description of middle ages and the Christian church of that time but elements of a Saturday Night Live esue dark comedy seems to poke through freuently and I am sure that was unintentional Told in alternating narratives the first and most freuent is of 1348 Germany through the voice of a village pastor and the second is of modern times and of scientists researching the odd history of the little town; Flynn does a good job of changing his writing style to match the perspective Interesting and entertaining it could use some

    PDF Michael Flynn ☆ ☆ Eifelheim MOBI ¼ eifelheim pdf, Eifelheim MOBII can't say this enough I love stories that start with a simple premise eg in Eifelheim aliens crash land near a small 14th century German village then follow the characters as they react and interact with the situationI'm really wavering between 4 and 5 stars for Eifelheim Yet another conundrum due to the uantized GoodReads Ratings Let's lay out the case for eachFive Stars I was really mourning the end of this book because I felt like I was so thoroughly immersed in the 14th century German village I loved the characters and even the minor ones had back stories I wanted to share a mug of beer and natural sciences discussion with Dietrich on Frau Honig's porch and have Theresia blend me some herbs for my headache I wanted to go to one of Herr Manfred's fetes and dance and laugh with Mannfred Max Gregor Lorentz and TrudeThe aliens were well and truly al
