    One thought on “Mississippi Blues”

    1. I didn't like it as much as I liked Queen City Jazz in general. There were places where the language came together with that same lyricisim that I liked in QCJ, and those parts were good. But there were also long stretches where I was fairly bored. These were long stretches where a single character would be going on for several paragraphs at a time, telling other characters (usually Verity or Blaze) about things that happened with them--and that got to me after a while. Too much show, not enough [...]

    2. About halfway through this book I realized I had read the Nanotech Quartet out of order (I read Crescent City Rhapsody before this, even though that is the 3rd book of the quartet while Mississippi Blues is the 2nd). That's not really an issue, and in some ways it gave me some more context about the world. I liked this a lot more than Queen City Jazz, its precursor. Verity and Blaze, the central characters from both books, seemed much more developed, as did the world (a futuristic, post-nanotech [...]

    3. I don't know, this was such a frustrating book. Never ending diatribes from characters that all started to blend together by the end, long periods of reflective self-flagellation with very little plot movement coupled with some really interesting ideas examined in a vivid and interesting landscape. The musical device worked much more cohesively in this novel.Most frustrating of all was the with-holding of info by key characters, for no solid reason, to maintain an artificial tension within the n [...]

    4. A futuristic post-apocalyptic jumping off from Mark Twain’s story of an adventure down the Mississippi. And boy does she play with the Mark Twain theme, in the most delightful way! Thoroughly enjoyable, rich and multi-layered. As much as I loved the book, the ending was just a touch over the top for me. But given that I know there’s a sequel, I’m wondering if it was all perhaps meant to be slightly ironic? Interesting how she takes on race as a topic.
