    EBOOK / KINDLE (Dahlia Black) by Keith Thomas Keith Thomas Ó 2 Review Reads like a made for TV movieI saw this book compared to World War Z the novel not the movie in several uotes advertising it That's true only in format; much of Dahlia Black is presented in the form of interviews between the fictional author and other people But whereas the characters in World War Z come across as authentic those in this novel feel like they were ripped straight out of pop culture There's an outsider sc

Dahlia Black

Dahlia Black Free read ↠ 102 Black the mysterious Pulse was sent by a highly intelligent intergalactic species that called themselves the Ascendants It soon becomes clear this alien race isn’t just interested in communication they are capable of rewriting human DNA in an astonishing process they call the Elevation Five years after the Pulse acclaimed journalist Keith Thomas sets out to make sense of the event that altered the world Thomas travels across the country to interview members of the task force who grappled to decode the Pulse and later disseminated its exact nature to worried citizens He interviews the astron. This ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI am ambivalent about this novel I didn t dislike it but it was rather dull It s a solid 25The basic premise is that this is a faux documentary style account of an apocalyptic event It s a combination of interviews transcriptions and diary entries organized in chronological order to give an overview of the phenomenon called The Pulse The titular Dahlia is the scientist who discovered that aliens were beaming a signal to earth which has momentous conseuences Momentous to the people in the story For me it wasn t that exciting It s easy to compare this novel to World War Z The only difference is that WWZ takes a interesting approach to the format Dahlia Black is didactic and constrained by its structure The novel fails at being a found text for two reasons The first is Dahlia s diaries they are not written like a diary They are written like a blog post or report in that she explains things that are clearly for our benefit ie what dark matter is Why would she explain this to herself It didn t feel real The other reason was that everything is there for the reader we are given the reason the reactions the result of the Pulse We aren t left with any uestions WWZ and others of the found text genre ie House of Leaves let the readers fill in some blanks and make connections or deliberately make us uestion what is true We only needed one or two of Dahlia s entries because the rest were repetitive I can t say a lot about the characters as they aren t really characters in that they are mainly interviewees though I appreciated the gender and racial diversity The lack of characterization is also why I m so nonchalant about the novel We re given the perspective of people who didn t experience anything tangible Part of what made WWZ so great was the short story aspect we re given different perspectives on the same thing to flesh out the story and make it real The characters in those stories had personality This novel was boring The only good chapter was the little boy at the hospital because it was told by someone who was there Everything else is in second hand or a bird s eye view The massacres the discovery of powers all this would have been super engaging and emotionally resonant as first person accounts either by the person or a loved one watching it happen Also what was with the conspiracy angle It contributed nothing to the storyAll in all this novel had a clever idea but failed to execute it in a way that was compelling I m sorry if most of the review seems negative I just can t recall anything I loved about the book Further Comments that didn t affect my ratingThere was a moment that made me laugh Someone uses a metaphor about getting a burst of power from shifting a car from second to fourth This is not how standard cars work If you really want to slam a car into a faster RPM you drop from a higher gear to a lower I know I ve done it a lot I only buy standard cars But given this is an ARC hopefully someone caught that metaphor and fixed it I must also add that the endnotes annoyed me I would much rather have preferred footnotes because by the time the chapter ended I didn t remember what the footnote was referring to Given I was reading an ARC this might be only true to my kindle version

Dahlia Black Free read ↠ 102 Omers who initially doubted Black’s discovery of the Pulse an error that critics say led to the world’s uick demise Thomas also hears from witnesses of the Elevation and people whose loved ones vanished in the Finality an event that to this day continues to puzzle Pulse researchers even though theories abound about the Ascendants’ motivation Including never before published transcripts from task force meetings diary entries from Black and candid interviews with Ballard Thomas also shows in Dahlia Black how a select few led their country in its darkest hours toward a new level of humanity.

Dahlia Black Free read ↠ 102 For fans of World War Z and the Southern Reach Trilogy a suspenseful oral history commemorating the five year anniversary of the Pulse the alien code that hacked the DNA of Earth’s population and the response team who faced the world changing phenomenon Voyager 1 was a message in a bottle Our way of letting the galaxy know we existed That we were out here if anyone wanted to find us Over the next forty years the probe flew past Jupiter and Saturn before it drifted into the void swallowed up by a silent universe Or so we thought Truth is our message didn’t go unheard Discovered by Dr Dahlia. You can read this review and on my blogWhat attracted me to this book is its comparison with World War Z the book not the awful movie I loved WWZ and its then new take on the zombie apocalypse I loved that the author chose to tell the story of what happened AFTER the end of the world as we know it That it was as much a tale of fighting the zombies as one of rebuilding a life in a new reality where they existed So another story about civilization coping with a world changing event and rebuilding after it I was all in Unfortunately the only way this book IS like WWZ is that it s a collection of fictional interviews and diary entries It is also very unimaginatively boring I kept hoping that there would be some emotional reward or grand revelation if only I kept reading but I turned the last page and the only thought in my head was why waste 288 pages on THATview spoilerThe whole story can be summed up in four steps 1 There is a mysterious Pulse from space that alters human DNA 2 About 30% of people are susceptible to the Pulse and change becoming the Elevated From those about 13 die during the transformation 3 The surviving Elevated disappear from our reality into a parallel dimension during the Finality 4 The other 70% of the world s population learn to keep on living hide spoiler
