Dikkat, %50 Dick %25 Ballard %15 Jamil Nasr %10 Strange Days içerir.

En azından ben öyle hissettim. Dick ve Ballard tadını , tabiki de uyuşturucu malzememizin varlığından :) , yine Ballard tadını yakın gelecekteki insanları daha iyi tüketime yönlendirmek için yapılan ileri düzey çalışmaların varlığından (kazıma), ve ayrı olarak Dick tadını da yine içindeki gerçeklik sorgusundan dolayı almaktayım. Kahramanımızın peşinde koştuğu kızın toplumda bilinen/ünlü bir kişi oolup ama arka planda kendin
La Tour des Rêves est un roman d'un américain, Jamil Nasir, dont l'action se déroule majoritairement au Caire. Un Caire du futur proche, peuplé de vingt millions d'habitants à la merci d'un grand tremblement de terre, et ne disposant d'aucune possibilité de se protéger de cette convulsion géante. Dans cet environnement très joyeux, un chasseur de rêves vient, appelé, ou plutôt hanté par une Image. Son métier est d'utiliser les Images de l'inconscient collectif pour en faire de la publicité psych ...more

One common trait of near future SF is that it becomes alternate history very soon. This book, for instance, was published in 1999. This knowledge helps when reading.

Our hero Blaine Ramsey is in the Middle East, digging. Which is to say, looking for Images that spring from the collective unconscious that can be used for advertising and the like. It's been a blank thus far, but he gets one -- a lovely dream of a beautiful young woman hopping up on the wall between her garden and his. Then someone

Disaster, obsession, the collective unconscious, in a future Middle East. Very interesting, couldn't put it down. Author provides vivid details of Middle East culture, traditions, squalor, customs, etc. Reminds me of "tech noir".

Great atmosphere of the Middle East, Egypt in particular. Kind of vague about the 'collective unconscious' image diggers, but that's ok.

By far my favorite of all of Nasir's imaginative and unique science fiction novels. Nasir's ideas on dreams and the way he works them into his story lines are quite interesting. The only author I can even begin to compare him to would be Philip K Dick. If you are a PKD fan then definitely pick up all of Nasir's novels. This one is a must read for a scifi fans in general

Great speculative fiction, well plotted and with lots of interesting ideas. I like that Nasir sees the strengths and weaknesses of both traditional cultures and the postmodern West. Strangely moving.
