More About This Book

Overview

If Harlan Ellison, Tom Clancy, James Morrow, and Friedrich Nietzsche co-wrote a novel, they might produce. This sequel to Tom Flynn's critically acclaimed first novel, "Galactic Rapture" takes place in a galaxy-wide future civilisation that's obsessed with religion, yet furious at Terra (Earth) for giving rise to the most popular creeds of all.Terra may be the planet where humanity originated, but sophisticated Galactics treat it like a dismal stepchild. Few Terrans seek their fortunes among the stars. Those who try face patronising discrimination. Into this Galactic crucible leaps Earth-boy Gram Enoda, alongside an impossibly intelligent electronic sidekick who's simultaneously his secret weapon and the bane of his existence. Enoda just wants to get rich. Instead he stumbles into the centre of a top-secret, half-baked plan to (yes, literally) save the galaxy. Like "Galactic Rapture", "Nothing Sacred" is brimming with complex plotting, searing black humour, colourful characters, and penetrating examinations of religious and philosophical issues - all woven into a can't-put-it-down techno-thriller.

    Nothing Sacred Proves Nothing Is

    In his fast paced, action packed, dazzling take on a future time alarmingly close to our present, Tom Flynn skewers religion as it¿s never been skewered before, as he also takes on philosophy. Philosophy may never recover. I was laughing so hard that it took me at least five attempts to get through Chapter 5, the introduction of Enva Corglinu, the Prophetess of Nullity, who takes Nihilism to it¿s illogical conclusions. Which hasn¿t stopped me from re-reading it again and again since. It wasn¿t the only chapter (or verse) in Nothing Sacred that I was happily forced to re-read because I was laughing so loud, I couldn¿t hear myself. On top of that, I had to fight my husband and three children (1 in high school, 2 in college) who keep ¿borrowing¿ the book once they figured out what was causing my laughter. It was easy to track the book; they weren¿t quiet either. There isn¿t a computer geek or gamer alive who won¿t envy the relationship between Gram Enoda and Computer, his philosophical, biochip based computer that insists on calling him ¿Bucko.¿ They¿re a pivotal part of the intrigue, which includes a quarantine of Terra (earth) by the Galactic Confectory to stop the further spread of its major export: the religions that have created major problems throughout the Galaxy. Meanwhile, drugs, the substitution of ¿reality¿ for life, business and media based religions, and so much else, is satirized in great style, that you don¿t even notice the seriousness of the points Flynn is making. The man truly knows his stuff, chapeter and verse, angst by angst. While the Galactic Confectory fights to regain control of its member planets and at the same time deal with the infighting between the various religions and philosophers, it even more importantly has to prevent another devastating attack by the Tuezi devices that periodically enter the Galaxy from another dimension, destroying whole planets in seconds. Everyone, secular, scientific, and sectarian, converges at the site of the planned attack. The conclusion is perfect, it just couldn¿t happen any other way. Nothing Sacred is actually the sequel to Tom Flynn¿s scathingly brilliant Galactic Rapture, which eerily predicted reality television, and could well have been part of Mel Gibson¿s inspiration for The Passion of the Christ. Even so, it¿s really unfair to blame Flynn for either travesty; even he couldn't have predicted the insanity of our time. You don¿t have to read Galactic Rapture in order to thoroughly enjoy Nothing Sacred, it perfectly stands on it's own, but you¿re definitely going to want to get your hands on a copy soon as possible.
