Dec 11, Lwoconnor rated it really liked it. I've been a non-follower of the phenomenon until this book and I were introduced. For that very reason, the opening pages of the work were both vital to me what are the cultural names and suppositions with which I'm dealing and dense to the point that they required a notepad and some initial patience. Irish names, I can handle, Quetzal, Kinchel, seemed initially obscure until I got into the rhythm of the text.

The opening chapters of the book are written in third person while the roles are introduced, then the narrative switches to the voice of Du, the book's hero and focus. The shift seemed distracting at first, but was rewarding as the story is best understood through the thoughts of the god Tatya-Masi who discovers the complexities of his role as a central theme of the book no spoilers here since the opening paragraphs tell you of his conundrum. Oshins' task, as the book picks up pace, is to readily bring to life the array of unseen forces joining in the battle the Mayan lore envisions.
To do so, the book becomes both highly visual and distinctly auditory. At times, this is a strain because this reader wanted to see, not just imagine the manifestations Oshins describes, and to hear the onomatopoeia that identify the combatants rather than read them.

The result is that, at times, it seemed like I was reading a movie that I would much prefer to watch. To me, that was a good thing, I wanted to watch and would when Hollywood picks up this tome. As the adventure progresses, Du finds himself first the tentative then the happy cohort of a group of what could best be defined as "hippie throwback commune members" complete with a public persona that brings a truly unexpected dimension of pure fun to the book.
The subplot, although elaborate, never seems like a digression, it's "instrumental" an advised term in advancing the main plot line. I marveled at how Oshins managed to create a book segment where Mayan conflict somehow lost its war to Hunter S Thompson albeit briefly. This segment was pure fun, while at the same time moving things along seamlessly.
Two things keep a mini-star I'd like to rate this four and a half out of full-fledged unabashed "read it today" recommendation for this book. The first is that the central character, Du, is so plagued with self doubt, that I truly wanted to sit the young creature down and have a "suck it up" conversation with him.

Introspection is a VERY important aspect of the character, but it becomes too prevalent after awhile to the point of creating impatience with our hero. The second is that, about fifty pages from the end of the book, I began to have the eerie feeling that I wouldn't get the neat, compact resolution of plot that I hope for when I read fiction, and sure enough, I didn't.

The good news is, if the postlog, is accurate you can, just not in one reading. I'm a bit of a born cynic. I would probably not have added the upcoming move about to my video store rental list for its own sake. The book "12", however, is a different tale indeed. Get it, pop a cold one, and enjoy the ride.
Jun 20, Emily S. I tried to like this book, I really did. I just couldn't get into the story and I couldn't care about the characters. I yawned each time Du found himself in a new predicament, looked the other way when characters died, and found myself wishing that the bad guys would just get him and get it over with. I got annoyed with him rather than sympathetic. I I tried to like this book, I really did. I just couldn't like the book, and didn't end up finishing.
I can't justify spending my time on something that isn't engaging. I gave it pages to speak to me, but when it didn't, I put it down. With that however, Oshins does a brilliant job with the mythology involved. I cheered for the Mayan gods as they went to battle over the fate of the earth. Those guys were menacing, nicely written, and believable. I'm an archaeologist okay, not practicing, but still! So I know this stuff. I know the legends, the myths, the gods, the culture.
And Oshins delivered and kept the spirit of the Mayan culture alive.
I appreciated that. I just wish it had been enough to override my intense dislike of the main character! Dec 17, Aksana rated it really liked it Shelves: firstreads , giveaways. I received a copy of this book through FirstReads. The book got me interested in the topic of Mayan calendar and its prediction of the end of the world. I am not really sure I believe about the imminent end of the world as we know it and this book seemed to be written more like a fantasy to me.

Du, the main character, who is a god whose destiny is to resolve the conflicts between the gods of Water, Fire and Serpent, finds himself in doubt about his identity, family and abilities, reflective of human struggles despite his being not really human frog-like.
The descriptions of scenes and events were very vivid and colorful and it was an unstoppable action of the battle of good and evil sometimes it was hard to tell who was good and who was evil. I expected the resolution to be more 'insightful', however; it felt that some things were not explained completely throughout the story.
Overall, I would be interested to find out what adventures await Du in Volume 2. Shelves: first-reads , science-fiction-fantasy , series-or-trilogy. This novel presents an interesting perspective on , the year the ancient Mayan calendar ends, as it confronts the possibility of a new age and the end of our world as we know it.
