    1. Paul Park is really more of a literay writer, I think. He's a wonderful fellow to talk to, and very literate. He uses fantasy and SF as a way to touch on the themes he feels are important. If you're looking for space opera or heroic fantasy, for adventure, then Park is probably not for you. His stories are complicated and rich. They're worth the effort but you won't find them to be quick reads.


    2. This book is another of my random secondhand book selections, and I was pleasantly surprised. I have made it a goal to read more fantasy, and this was one of the few at Bookfest that looked interesting (the cover shows men on horned, bird-headed horses), but I really did not know what to expect. What I did find was a detailed bit of world-building, and two very well written cultures set against each other on a planet with strange and long drawn-out seasons.The book starts with the first culture, [...]


    3. Not an easy read for mebut worth the efforthas some great characterization full of anti-heros who evolve dramatically as their stories and complex misfortunes unfold pushing the characters to their limits and pulling them into various modes of insanity as they fail to cope with a world of insanity and religiously ordained chaos. The plot seems to play off of familiar social disparities in our own contemporary world, successfully making a mockery of various socio-religious dogmas most noticably t [...]


    4. I read Soldiers of Paradise for the first time 20 years ago. I just read it again and am happy to say it still holds all the same beauty and mystery as it did for me as a teenager. This novel is so dense despite its slim size, it can't be read in a sitting. A few pages reveal a world of unlimited imagination to ponder. The characters are angry, hurt, fallible and failing people living in a corrupt society of such violence and danger and poverty and privelege that it might be our own. Except, inc [...]


    5. i don't think i could really tell you what this book was about. i didn't really care for the characters, Paul Park definitely does not give you any kind of pay off (which i appreciated), the setting is unexplained and pretty impenetrable, and the plot meanders and frankly seems absent. that being said: bravo. i can't imagine ever writing this book, and i'm not entirely sure that i'll read the later books, though i might. reminded me of a less verbose David Zindell, and not quite as cryptic Gene [...]


    6. Park's Starbridge Chronicles are an amazing example of literary science Fiction. The fictional world is as rich as Dune with its detailed culture and religion. The society has an extremely maladaptive caste system in which children are marked with tattoos to mark their place in society for life based on omens at birth. There are the antinomial outcasts who reject names and live in the wild. The plot almost gets lost in the richness of the setting. These books deserve a much bigger audience than [...]


    7. I hope to have a more substantive review soon, but for now all I can say is this really blew me away.It's my first Paul Park, and I'm pretty damned excited to see what else he's done. Dense, evocative, literary SF, reminiscent of Gene Wolfe and John Crowley, but definitely not obviously derivative of either.As in the best SF & F, it is deeply otherworldly while being strongly resonant with lived emotional reality.


    8. A Truly Wondrous StoryOne of the strangest and most lovely books I’ve ever read, Soldiers of Paradise is a rare gem, a truly alien world, but one that makes you feel a depth and breadth of human emotion.
