Ivity but it s the memory of irst *receiving the book that s the most burned * the book that s the most burned my mind My uncle sent it to me in California Lauri Törni - Legend - Larry Thorne from New York City where he lived A voracious lifelong reader whose own kid hadn t yet reached reading age that uncle was my model of literary sophistication At Christmas and birthdays he d send carefully selected hardcovers that were clearly serious books children s Literature with a cosmopolitan capital L Each year after A Tale of Time City brought another Diana Wynne Jones hardcover until either I grew up or he developed Alzheimer s at a startlingly young age I m not sure which event happenedirstTrying to describe the complex plot of this book is probably too tall an order considering my از دیار آشتی fragile and weak brained bereaved state It begins with Vivian a girl being sent out of London to escape the Blitz which is occurring in 1938 instead of 1940 I might get some details wrong since I don t have the book with me and I haven t read it since the early nineties Vivian winds up being kidnapped by two kids who spirit her away to Time City a place that s built outside of regular history and which somehow regulates the passage of time But there s a problem some nefarious someone the Time Lady has been screwing around with the mechanisms that keep time running smoothly and Vivian and her two newriends Lady has been screwing around with the mechanisms that keep time running smoothly and Vivian and her two new The Kite friends and Jonathan need to stop them and save Time City and history There s a lot of time traveling through different ages Bronze Iron etc and cool details like the special suits and desserts of Time City Everything ends in a huge chaotic catastrophic climactic mess that doesn t make a whole lot of sense which is one of DWJ s special and to me wonderful signaturesA lot of books I ve read have had a great impact on me but when I m dead in my grave this one may have been the most important A Tale of Time City was theirst book I read that amazed me completely It was the The Power of Place first work of art I experienced that seemed absolutely perfect It took me outside of my piddling nine year old existence and gave me thoughts and experiences I never could have imagined on my own It made my life so much and so much larger than it ever could have been before A Tale of Time City introduced me to sorry guys the sublime capacity of literatureI was still a kid when Iirst read it and didn t Thoughtful Interaction Design fully get yet that magic wasn t real I didn t knowor sure that time travel wasn t possible that time only moved in one direction brutally ruthlessly A course in Game Theory forward and that you couldn t ever go back later andix anything or change things around I didn t understand yet that I was going to get older and then keep getting older after that even if I Topless Cellist felt done I didn t know that my uncle would get sick and lose the brain I admired so much or that myavorite writer would die before I ever got around to meeting her or sending the crazed The Wild Queen (Young Royals, fan letters I always meant to write Of course I digure out all that depressing stuff later on as I d be crushed by the tyranny of lost time and an adult life that just keeps on passing me by But even this horror that s reality couldn t defeat me completely Diana Wynne Jones had revealed that there was a refuge a respite a place outside time That magic was real and time travel was possible that I could duck outside the unmerciful lockstep of days marching me Tax Progressivity and Income Inequality forward towards my own deathI ve been going through sort of an illiterate phase recently haven t been reading much and definitely have cooled off on reviewing But Jones s deathrom lung cancer has reminded me that even at thirty two there are still a couple things I do believe in not time travel or magic in a child s literal sense but in books power to Learning and Development free their readers and also to confer some immortality on their creators I know it s super corny to say but as long as people read her books Diana Wynne Jones will remain in some vital senses alive Which is corny or not a magic that s real A Tale of Time City is many things utterly confusingantastically imaginative highly intelligent and unexpectedly complex Above all however it is entertainingThis book precedes the Harry Potter series but while reading it you really wonder if JK Jonathan and Sam They mistakenly think she is the mysterious Time Lady disguised as a child Only the Time Lady can wake the Arduino Development Cookbook founder of the city Faber Johnrom his age long sleep and only he can save the cityVivian wants to get home; Jonathan and Sam want her to help them in their ue. ,


Owling was perhaps a Diana Wynne Jones Mastering Gephi Network Visualization fan I instantly get aamiliar The Canadian Regime feeling with the way Jones describes her magic so belonging logical rational and wonderfully Beside that there s other things people walking through walls at train stationsor example and certain types of charactersOn to the confusing part however This book is the most hectic I ve ever read Testing Aircraft, Exploring Space from Jones and I often had to re read entire paragraphs id pages to get a grasp of what was happening If you plan on reading this be sure to keep your attentionThen myavorite thing Jones adds a ludicrous amount of detail to her books and it all pays off Reading it is like itting the pieces of a puzzle together So many things are oreshadowed or hinted at and nothing described ends up being unimportantAdd with that a dash of oul villains a young and very strong emale main protagonist a bunch of compelling side characters and you ve got yourself a book that makes me ask Un Cadeau pour ma Femme for Wonderful children s time travel book One of the things I like best about Diana Wynne Jones is how her children are children and adults are adults What do I mean by that First children are not adults They can t do everything an adult might do They can t win a swordight with an ogre But they are still competent they might trick the ogre or sneak past the ogre It has been a while so I don t remember an example rom this book Second adults are adults In too many YA books the adults are simply stupid Time City I elt did a great job of showing adults who were just as concerned about the time crisis as the kids but because of Shadow Bound factors like their age values and responsibilities had a different view of what was important and thereby wound up hindering the children rather than joining with them Rated PG That Was AWESOME For the record I have never cared about historical dates before this book Now I actually remember the year that WWII started and if I learned nothing elserom reading A Tale of Time City this alone would make it SO WORTH ITAlso this came highly recommended by some of my Mapapansin Kaya? favorite authors including Maggie Stiefvater If you don t know Stiefvater s work you need to read The Scorpio Races Asabulous as that book is though Stiefvater acknowledged that she was inspired by Diana Wynne Jones A Tale of Time City Well I cannot pass up recommendations by my Buntus Foclora favorite authors of works and authors that inspired them One of Diana Wynne Jones greatest talents was her ability to take the most complicated settings and make them work She could create multiple universes and have circular time and time travel and shifting history and it would all work somehow Her stories could be massively complex but totally understandable well until the end sometimes when things wouldall apart into loose chaos a bit And every single bit of her talent positively sparkles rom every page of this book Yes bit And every single bit of her talent positively sparkles rom every page of this book Yes book has elements of Narnia in it but it is also the precursor to Meet the Robinsons and Harry Potter of which this book also reminds me Vivian Smith is a young girl living in 1939 London and she is being evacuated to the country when she is kidnapped by a boy about her age He takes her through a train wall to his young accomplice in Time City Time City by the way is literally a city pulled out of history The inhabitants are in charge of monitoring history and providing a storehouse of knowledge The problem is that Time City is unraveling because time s anchors are being um stolen And with the unraveling of Time City history is unraveling as well However Vivian along with her two young unraveling of Time City history is unraveling as well However Vivian along with her two young are pretty much the only people who know what is going on with history and the adults are no help at all Either the children can t tell the adults because they ound out this information illicitly or the adults will not listen As such Vivian Jonathan and Sam embark on a *series of adventures to rescue time eating the * of adventures to rescue time eating the so delicious butter pies Моя семья и другие звери; Птицы, звери и родственники from 42 Century and trying toigure out who is causing history s major issues Yes the ending is a bit confusing but that pales in comparison to the sheer scintillating superiority of the rest of the book Fabulously done and one of my new avorite. St through the ages of history to save Time City Meanwhile someone seems to be tampering with history changing it over and over complicating everything When Faber John is at last aroused Time City's and Vivian's dilemmas are resolved in ways that are as satisfying as they are unexpect. ,
