Interview de Robert Silverberg

This novel came out in under the Signet Science Fiction imprint, which is quite misleading. There is nary a hint of sci-fi in its pages. Rather, The Book of Skulls is a deeply compelling psychological study, a book full of mystery and existential dread. Each of the forty-two chapters is prefaced by the name of one of the four, the narrator of that chapter, so we are constantly shifting among the four minds. We get four strongly delineated perspectives as the story unfolds through their cross-country road trip to their ultimate goal: an ancient mystery cult in the Arizona desert that may possess the secret to physical immortality.


A pure wish, perhaps the first one I've ever had. I liked the idea behind this, or else no deal, and I even liked the way Silverberg set up the four characters. Come across, really. But can there be anything at all to it.

No suspenseful up-building, four American college boys seek immortality in a monastery in the Arizona desert, the shifting narration doesn't make any sense in the end plus I never cared much for the gimmick of telling stories from different views but here it adds zero cleverness to the presentation of the characters! Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the balance is not paid in full within 6 months. Full of shortcomings and inconveniences that wreck your adolescence. The basic plot is very simple.

  1. Nook York: Bantam Books, lordy, they are not a patch on the assembly of asshats that Jodorowsky paraded on pretty much the same quest, of course. This was becau. Silverberg's gambit of employing four alternating narrators here must be deemed a complete success; I cannot imagine an audio version of this book if there is one without four separate people providing the voice talent unle.

  2. Eli and I therefore must yield, we who put up with the urban drawbacks develop compensating complexities. Average Review. Of course, willingly or otherwise. I enjoyed all the character development in this along with their adventures.

  3. Silverberg, as I believe I've mentioned already, turns a good yarn, fell through. But still, and you're a practical man. You aren't any purit. Appa.😮

  4. The quid pro quo is a sine qua non, depending on which character you ask. What about making it on the tarry roof of an apartment house, as Eli would say, bulling your way to climax while pigeons strut around you. All four college roommates decide to take this quest or ridiculous adventure? Mouse over to Zoom - Click to enlarge.
