T intended to be funnyTo avoid giving anything interesting #AWAY TO THE UNFORTUNATE SOULS WHO STUMBLE UPON THIS #to the unfortunate souls who stumble upon this the near or distant future I will conclude by saying if you have a child ask them to write you a story called Cemetery World and they will pen a story far better than this mess Wow I ll cut Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie right to the chase Cemetery World is one of the most horrifically written sloppily conceived and all around terrible excuses of a novel I have ever had the misfortune toead After eading the stunning classic A Canticle for Leibowitz I couldn t distance myself from a book set centuries hell millennia into the future and at the uick glance Cemetery World could almost be an unofficial and accidental seuel to Canticle humans eturn to Earth from space 10000 years into the future only to discover that the planet is not what it was originally perceived to be Heck the idea itself is not bad at all and Simak s somewhat dystopian ideas of Earth becoming a massive cemetery are entertaining Even the cover looks like something out of a cheesy 1980 s post apocalyptic summer blockbusterBut that s about all there is to praise about Cemetery Planet because there eally is NOTHING good about this book Simak has to be one of Cemetery Planet because there eally is NOTHING good about this book Simak has to be one of worst writers I have ever ead Aside from his epetitiveness and general lack of knowledge concerning the use of a thesaurus it s clear that the guy knows nothing of how to write a dialogue I don t know about other The Worst Weather on Earth: A History of Mount Washington Observatory readers but I grew tired of the constant sentence interruptions with the typical he saidshe said For example So she said What about blah blah blah I don t know I said Let s blah blah blah Seriously Simak take a creative writing course on how to craft decent dialogue structure Conversations should show some sort of creativity and they surely do not have to be that boringThen there is the delivery Like I said the plot idea wasn t bad but Simak manages touin his own brainchild with his slow story telling that involves too many characters or settings only to leave the A London Home in the 1890s reader scratching their head going whaaaaaaat Take for instance Bronco and Elmer Interesting characters to be sure and the author goes into far too much detail describing them and how Fletcher found theobot Elmer and yet he as well as Bronco only compose maybe 14 of this book s plot Speaking of plot the ending just doesn t work both literally and fictionally Ignore the fact that it s wrapped up in 2 paragraphs but just like Terminator 2 it doesn t make sense Let s just say it involves time travel like Back to the Future but in no way does Simak even attempt to explain it Cemetery World was bad Horribly The Geology And Landscape Of Santa Barbara County, California, And Its Offshore Islands rotten I kepteading hoping the story would pick up or the loop holes that were created would be filled As you can see from my scathing Biopower: Foucault and Beyond review both of those hopes like a bug were smashed flat This may not have been as bad as Nueromancer or One Second After but it was pretty damn close to being the worst book I haveead this year Honestly if you want a good take on the future of Earth after a devastating nuclear war stick with A Canticle for Leibowitz I thought this would be a book about a visit back to old earth where the characters would comb through the detritus of the past Possibly they would meet an old Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds robot or hologram I expected it to be full of SF tropes Instead it s a silly pulp action SF novel Extremely boring and doesn tesemble Simak at al.
