FREE DOWNLOAD ✓ The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves T Anderson recounts Octavian's experiences as the Revolutionary War explodes around him thrusting him into intense battles and tantalizing him with elusive visions of liberty Ultimately this astonishing narrative escalates to a startling deeply satisfying climax while reexamining our national origins in a singularly provocative light. The conclusion of Octavian s tale is every bit as satisfying as the beginning it s like a stew full of strong hearty language and meaty chunks of characterization and I m going to drop this metaphor for obvious reasonsAnyway there was some really great stuff about The Kingdom on the Waves I really enjoyed the tales of how some of the slaves ended up in the Ethiopian Regiment and Octavian s chronicling thereof and how Bono s levity sparkles throughout what is otherwise an extraordinarily dark book and Octavian s voice itself and the language BeautifulSome passages I particularly enjoyedIs it not ever thus the attempts to parley between master and slave and perhaps between all men is it not always words shouted across the shifting flood torn away by wind Each hath his element each is wary of brigandage and a gulf roils between us allAnd I saw the Earth as the sun rose and it was a world of fire of particle spark and aether consumed and exchanged no solid place to stand and we were creatures of fire loops and bright coils devouring as we could in serpentine chase exhausting until ourselves extinguished and all shed superficies and clutched to renew and preyed upon allAlso I have to thank Anderson for keeping this a two volume series for not succumbing to trilogy pressure and writing a third volume with gargantuan cleansing battles and a happy ending for allSigh I booked it home from the bus so I could drive over to the library a little too far to walk from the bus plus I needed to start my car and pick this up where it is on hold for me I battled the rush hour traffic and pulled into an EMPTY parking lot It s Lincoln s 200th birthday and the library is closedAt least I know the book is worth all the hassle
