    One thought on “Till Human Voices Wake Us”

    1. This is a really strange book. I picked it up on a whim at the used bookstore; the back-cover blurb made the story sound interesting, and a glance inside showed that the prose was readable, at least. I was expecting a difficult, intellectual story, possibly about the end of the world. What I got was something different.The novel follows four narrative threads. You could say that it has three main characters, or four-- two of the protagonists are actually the same character, Olavo, existing in tw [...]

    2. I'm having a hard time rating this book. I think I'd like to give it 3 3/4 stars, but since that's impossible, we'll round up to 4. Mark Budz's Till Human Voices Wake Us is a clever and meditative look at what it means to be human; what it means to remember our past and still move forward, continuing to live the best way we can; what it means to be alive and live a full life. Part mystery, part philosophy, part hard SF this is certainly a book with the right combination of elements that could ma [...]

    3. This book was a total surprise. There are three separate stories that take place in three separate time frames--early twentieth century, near future, and far future--and that start to tie together in the middle. It is actually an exquisite exploration of memory and how that is tied to our sense of self and consciousness, as well as how our hopes and dreams define us (or not) as well. Very emotional, powerful descriptions of human suffering and loss. However, the book eventually moves toward an o [...]

    4. This is harder SF than I usually pick, but Budz has managed to weave together a hard SF concept with some deeply human characters--three men in separate times, each suffering from head trauma. The author draws the reader on his own journey of integrating these characters within themselves and the larger narrative. It's not always clear what story is being told, but if you have patience, the threads untangle.

    5. I really did not enjoy this book very much. I found it disjointed and difficult to keep track of the story lines. The last third was an easier read as the stories started to mesh and I found the ending very fitting. All in all I would not recommend the book to anyone that is not a dedicatwd "hard" sci-fi fan.

    6. A wildly inventive and a fascinating look at the possible four-dimensionality of personality. It took me a while to care for many of the characters - it's the fascinating ideas that drove me tokeep reading. Three stars, largely for the cool idea.

    7. Was confusing for a while, until the separate threads came together. I'm still not sure I "get" this book, but it was a good read all the same. I like science fiction that doesn't fit the mold, and goes its own way. This felt different to me, and so it grabbed my interest.

    8. Strong futurist SF with a rich fugue-like plot that connects several times/places/people in a web of probability and possible outcomes. You've got to pay attention or loose the threads.
