    While I may not know the where or why before I begin reading a book by Mr Johnson, I know from page one I m going on a journey of discovery In the third book of his fantasy series, Last True World, there are wild rides up and down mountain sides, seduction and even a little romance thrown in for good measure There are answers to the questions raised in books one and two, and much to consider about man s place in the universe There s so much I would like to say but I m afraid of giving away t While I may not know the where or why before I begin reading a book by Mr Johnson, I know from page one I m going on a journey of discovery In the third book of his fantasy series, Last True World, there are wild rides up and down mountain sides, seduction and even a little romance thrown in for good measure There are answers to the questions raised in books one and two, and much to consider about man s place in the universe There s so much I would like to say but I m afraid of giving away too much of this well thought out and complex plot This book has loads of magic in it, but it s not from the usual witches and wizards It s the magic of exquisite words flowing into beautiful sentences These well crafted sentences form one of the most stunning books I have read in a very long time

    Sheer brilliance, a world woven into our ownThe Dica series will live in my mind and imagination forever I ve read many books, many genres but only a very few authors stand out as being truly original mine are J.R.R., Heinlein, George Macdonald and Lindsay and now this author, Clive S Johnson I had to quickly read the Last True World after Of Weft and Weave, something was missing a character that seemed so important to me, perhaps only to me, and for whatever mysterious reason Somehow read Sheer brilliance, a world woven into our ownThe Dica series will live in my mind and imagination forever I ve read many books, many genres but only a very few authors stand out as being truly original mine are J.R.R., Heinlein, George Macdonald and Lindsay and now this author, Clive S Johnson I had to quickly read the Last True World after Of Weft and Weave, something was missing a character that seemed so important to me, perhaps only to me, and for whatever mysterious reason Somehow reading another book before this would have jolted me out of my dreamlike state, but simply, I didn t want to leave Dica I couldn t leave, because when I did the story drifted away as if it were a dream and I was frightened I might not return to the same book I remembered, as it shifted and swam before my eyes and my imagination Out of the three most excellent books this is the best, it is slower somehow, well paced, even if we are on a race to the inevitable end From the first book I felt the long span of life and time, like the characters I too felt aged and yet ageless, some part of me seemed woven into Dica TheI read theI already knew The clever clues scattered throughout the 3 books made you pause, make you smile, although you can never be sure if the conclusions you are very slowly coming to are the right ones there again what is right for me or anyone Perhaps that shifts with every thread woven.Then with one last poetic push, a strange yet familiar world is born Plainly put, it s beautiful Much of what I ve taken careful notice of along the way is at last laid almost bare, almost I don t agree with the final premise but it doesn t matter at all Growing up with engineers and architects I understand it I know the desire to build from the smallest first part to the final how they think and ponder and it is so with Dica, it all falls into place so perfectly I differ only in that I want to go even deeper through all the ages, all matter that still ties us to those times, to the very fabric of thought, peeling away the layers of existence and reality to nothing These two ideas co exist, one can t exist without the other The author builds for me so I can destroy as I find my own way into Dica.The ending is what I perceived at the beginning, but here we have a curtain slowly opening as the light is let in Again I feel the long span of ages and time before it exists to be measured, and it s just over my shoulder and I peep backwards wondering how we came to this I don t think the chaos should ever be tamed I don t want to leave because when I do the story will drift away and reform and when I return my perception will differ and Dica will change again I will return just as I do to the authors above for a certain kind of chaos in the increasing conformity of this world I exist in For imaginations sake I ll be back Dica will never leave me it s here as long as I am Many books are enjoyable and well written enough to be worth those 5 stars, but this is not of the same measure I recommend this book to everyone who likes to soar above mediocrity
