( 6 )

Overview

Jeremy Bremen has a secret. All his life he has been cursed with the unwanted ability to read minds. He can hear the secret thoughts behind the placid expressions of strangers, colleagues, and friends. Their dreams, their fears, their most secret desires are as intimate to him as his own. For years his wife, Gail, has served as a shield between Jeremy and the intrusive thoughts of those around him. Her presence has protected him from the outside world and allowed him to continue his work as one of the world's ...

Overview

Jeremy Bremen has a secret. All his life he has been cursed with the unwanted ability to read minds. He can hear the secret thoughts behind the placid expressions of strangers, colleagues, and friends. Their dreams, their fears, their most secret desires are as intimate to him as his own. For years his wife, Gail, has served as a shield between Jeremy and the intrusive thoughts of those around him. Her presence has protected him from the outside world and allowed him to continue his work as one of the world's leading mathematicians. But now Gail is dying, her mind slipping slowly away, and Jeremy comes face-to-face with the horror of his own omniscience. Vulnerable and alone, he is suddenly exposed to a chaotic flood of others' thoughts, threatening to fill him with the world's pain and longing, to sweep away his very sanity. His mathematical studies have taken him to the threshold of knowledge and enabled him to map uncharted regions of the mind, to recognize the mind itself as a mirror of the universe...and to see in that mirror the fleeting reflection of the creator himself. But his studies taught him nothing at all about the death of the mind, about the loss of love and trust, and about the terrible loneliness of mortality. Now Jeremy is on the run - from his mind, from his past, from himself - hoping to find peace in isolation. Instead he witnesses an act of brutality that sends him on a treacherous odyssey across America, from a fantasy theme park to the mean streets of an uncaring city, from the lair of a killer to the gaudy casinos of Las Vegas, and at last to a sterile hospital room in St. Louis in search of the voice that is calling him to the secret of existence itself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hugo Award winner Simmons returns to science fiction after a pair of horror novels ( Summer of Night ; Children of the Night ) with this impressive and thoughtful novel about the pain and the power of telepathy. Jeremy and Gail were made sad and lonely by their ability to read others' minds, until they found each other. Married, they grew closer than any non-telepathic couple ever could. But when Gail dies, Jeremy goes over the edge. He finds himself inundated with ``neurobabble,'' unable to keep out the roaring ocean of other thoughts that surrounds him. Drowning in despair, he begins a journey meant to resemble bear an unmistak able resemblance to that of Dante in his Divine Comedy --he flees his job, friends and home; runs afoul of gangsters in Florida; lives homeless in Denver; and uses his telepathy to win his way to wealth in Las Vegas. Simmons is at his best during Jeremy's descent into despair, searching for relief from the neurobabble and flirting with suicide. Blending chaos theory, quantum physics and neuroscience, Simmons constructs a vague but intriguing scientific explanation of telepathy. The power-of-love happy ending may leave some readers unsatisified, since it doesn't resolve some of the book's bleaker issues, but Simmons's novel remains an engrossing look at a well-worn concept. of telepathy. (Oct.)
Library Journal
The untimely death of telepath Gail Bremen casts husband Jeremy adrift on a tidal wave of unfiltered thoughts. Jeremy's struggle to come to terms with his life and his wife's death leads him to a young boy lost in his own mental nightmare. The author of the award-winning Hyperion (Doubleday, 1989) and The Fall of Hyperion ( LJ 3/15/90) demonstrates his facility with atmosphere in this sf/fantasy blend that penetrates the mind's landscape. Recommended for large fiction or sf collections.

    A waste of time

    Only wish that I could formulate the mathematic equation that would allow me to recapture the time spent reading this plodding and ponderous pulp.

    Recommended to fiction and science fiction readers.

    Jeremy and Gail Bremen are two extremely unique people. What makes them that way is the fact that they both are telepathic. For years they have been together and have been protected against the worlds ¿neurobabble¿ by each others mind shields. After being diagnosed with cancer the long struggle with Gail¿s life comes to an end and Jeremy is left bare against the constant neurobabble. Without Gail Jeremy is felt empty and hollow and after burning down his house his began traveling to places that brought him in great pain and troubles. First to a swamp where he meets a gangster named Vanni Fucci, then to the streets of Denver, a ranch, Vegas, and eventually he finds his way to a young boy. This book should be read by people that like real like surprising turns in a books and shouldn't be read by people that don't like love/happy endings.
