    Magnificat Galactic Milieu Trilogy #3 [Pdf/E–book] Despite very much liking the two preceding books Jack the Bodiless and Diamond Mask I was very put off by this one The writing seemed pedantic and the story disjoint Maybe I should have read the Saga books first? Thoughts from those who've read the entire spread of books set in this universe?

Magnificat Galactic Milieu Trilogy #3

Download ß Magnificat Galactic Milieu Trilogy #3 107 The eagerly awaited finale of a modern SF classic May's Galactic Milieu Trilogy which began with Jack the Bodiless and continued with Diamond. It s hard to even say this is the last book in the trilogy when the trilogy almost immediately leads into the Saga of Pliocene Exile which was published before this which then leads back to Intervention which brings us right back to the beginning of this series again May has written herself a loop that Joyce would be proud ofIn fact she s written that loop so tautly that I think to actually gauge the real effect of it you have to read all the books pretty much straight through maybe than once to really capture all the nuances I read Pliocene Exile so long ago I don t even remember what shelf I buried them in and while it was easy enough to get up to speed here it also helps to remember that Marc Remilliard is important to that series as well in ways that aren t clear until you put the whole tapestry together In a way the series suffers a little for that reason because by this point she s kind of filling in on stuff that was hinted at in previous books who Fury really is the Mental Man concept the Metaphysic Rebellion and after all the in book hype its hard to say that it could be brought to life on the page as well as it could be in our minds A lot of stuff like the ultimate fates of the characters have been told to us already and so a lot of this volume is seeing all those foretellings finally fulfilled as everyone gets what fate has coming for themStill by this point there s so much going on that its seems like May is just winding the characters up and letting them coast on momentum alone The focus here is supposed to be the Rebellion s growing plans as it seeks to combat the upcoming Unity but what I find interesting is how May almost goes out of her way to avoid having good guys and bad guys in the argument even though the Unity crew seems to come across as rational in their acceptance of it throughout the whole book May can t really seem to convince that the Rebellion s whole foundation is based on my gut says this isn t a good idea despite there being very little evidence its not a good idea she puts plenty of sympathetic characters on the Rebellion side including good ol Uncle Rogi he of the endless bystander status making it difficult to immediately dismiss them as cranky people who just didn t get a good night s sleepBut the Rebellion is just one strand in what turns out to be a whirling mesh of plots sometimes so dense that it almost obscures what should be the central plot the gradual turn by Marc into the leader of the Rebellion and the guy who orchestrated its most heinous actions His coming around to their point of view is graded so subtly that it does come across as May flicking a light switch and having him turn and I think that s because there s so much going on his change gets lost in the shuffle The threads have been there all along but she lets it fly low until the clouds clear and its right in your face Once Marc does grab hold of the plot he pretty much singlehanded drags it toward the end with everyone unwillingly along for the ride although by this point the sense of May filling in the blanks sort of sucks any surprise out of any of the proceedings Its like having a friend tell you all the best parts of a movie and then making you watch the movieAs usual where May succeeds is the characterizations Despite everyone acting like some version of superheroes between the psychic healing powers and the later ability to teleport you could put a bald man in charge and assume this was the X Men she gets a lot of mileage out of the relationships she s spent several books building up With Rogi as the observer who keeps getting dragged into things we see how everyone reacts to each other and how the weight of years affects those interactions It adds a needed heft to the final appearances of a lot of the long time characters balancing out that we never have to worry about Rogi because its clear that he lives since he s telling us the story and a sense of tragedy as a bunch of people who hoped they were doing the right thing discovered the right thing had a cost or that it was never the right thing in the first place All the close characters are believable as family for better or for worse whether its Marc s glowering superiority Rogi s cowardly non alcoholism Jack s knowing innocence in fact watching him develop has been one of the real delights of this series Diamond Mask s gradual comfort with herself or any of the random Remillards that pepper the landscapeIf not for these people the book might not succeed Despite everything happening as we re told its ultimately going to its difficult to escape the somewhat cartoony feel of events as we race toward the end Multiple personalities people seducing others under false identities psychic vampires groups of people with mental powers blowing up spaceships and planets the next generation of evolution being forcibly brought to life all of that and starts happening at once but May has done too good a job at grounding everything so it jars with everything that s gone before It needs to accelerate to a desperate feverish pitch when all we re doing is walking in the footsteps that were already laid out We re being asked to push events toward Doc Smith Lensmen levels of over the top SF pulp but it never reaches that screeching wail Instead things progress as they always have calmly and inevitably The family tree stretched out at the back seems to promise a massacre when a certain year is reached but it hardly seems like most of the deaths are even mentioned Even something like Fury seems out of place in all this the evil phantom lurking in the wings and killing someone occasionally merely to remind everyone that he s still around Despite the body count and adeptness at hiding he never feels like a real threat toward the end just another loose end to be tied up and kept goingBut its the people who stick in the mind the little interactions between Jack and Marc Rogi and Dorothea Dorothea and Jack Rogi and Denis any of the Remillards with each other even the minor characters who populate the story toward the end they have a close held bond to each other that only comes when they ve really been alive full of love and uarrels and disagreements and loss and joy In a sense it seems like that May at times is suggesting in her backgrounding of important events her structure of the series as an infinite closed loop fated to feed on itself that history isn t perhaps the most important part of events its merely the seuence that everyone agrees on And if history isn t as important as we re supposed to think it is that leaves only one other aspect to carry us through the people I may not remember half the plot of this book a year from now but I ll remember the people in it and that s probably the harder accomplishment to pull off

After all the build up to the Rebellion both in this trilogy and the Pliocene Saga I have to confess to feeling cheated I understand that rendering metaphysical concepts in prose is necessarily tricky but the final result had me flicking pages to check I hadn t accidentally skipped an entire chapter or I can t imagine May was writing to a deadline but considering the attention to detail she has previously lavished and I use the word both pejoratively and admiringly it s one of the few explanations I can offer The only other option is that the dramatic undercutting of this mythic turning point in the whole cosmology was a deliberately flicked finger to the idea of any historical fulcrum being innately dramatic at its origin

The final entry of possibly my favorite series of books ever except for LoTR natch This one shows signs of being perhaps a little rushed but given the overall uality of the series I think I can give Julian May some leeway hereTwo separate series of books are based in this universeThe Pliocene series the Many Coloured Land seriesThe Galactic Milieu seriesMagnificat the last book in the Galactic Milieu series is the story of the rebellion of a part of humanity against the peaceful Galactic Milieu and from the fallout of the rebellion comes the events of the Pliocene seriesThe entire set is chock full of space opera and Jungian psychology sort of like Alfred Bester but with an optimistic mindset It s a crazy kaleidoscope of well defined characters doing seemingly fated things Julian May wrote a couple of well received science fiction stories in the early 50s and then put fiction writing aside for several decades as she didn t think she could make a living doing it In the late 70s she came to the conclusion that the public might be tired of gritty anti heroic science fiction and would be interested in her sort of space opera again It seems to have been trueThis book is the last one she wrote and I always got the impression that she was running on fumes at this point The other books were all so full of dense characterization and description this one seems to have less thought and less fun in it It s still good and a fitting end to the series but it s a bit thinner than the others
