REVIEW Le cosmicomiche

Le cosmicomiche

Ve from auatic to terrestrial existence play games with hydrogen atoms and even have a love lifeDuring the course of these stories Calvino toys with continuous creation the transformation of matter and the expanding and contracting reaches of space and time He succeeds in relating complex scientific concepts This one pretty much floored me The scope and the way this was written kinda blew my mindWhat do I mean Well it s one hell of an accomplished SF encompassing all time and space from a single viewpoint in what may as well be god but isn t It s a love story with a very complicated relationship of an alien with another alien it s a love story with time physics genetics and all sorts of real math I will admit that a very great deal of my enjoyment of this novel stems from the fact that I m conversant with real science in a big way and this book incorporates it all very heavily in the narrativeThe book is kinda like this think of five or six hella great popular science writers turn them into short story writers let it have the feel of Marvel or DC cosmic stage stories and then have it feel right at home with Neil Gaiman s SandmanI m not joking It s really that good and that odd And while the science bits and how it s written is very heavy in a way I don t think it overwhelms the actual stories at all It s unusual and it s very smart but I wouldn t let that deter you from reading it Indeed I think everyone should read this and have it be a solid staple of the mindMy only complaint might be a bit idiotic I really think these stories would translate perfectly into a real comic I know it s kinda implied in the title but still I think it would be improved making it even readable and brilliant that is assuming that the artist is up to snuff

    Twelve dazzling stories from Calvino where his ambition here was to create a ludic fiction that could reflect complex advances in science without losing his playful nature and sense of magic and lightness The stories he wrote were direct attempts to assimilate new thinking in cosmology in recognisably human and comic dim
