LANGUAGE: Leviathan Awakes, Ch. 5

Loving the language in Chapter Five of Leviathan Awakes.

The situation is extremely exciting in a way that self’s own novel set in 16th century Philippines can never be (unless she figures out a way to add English pirates to the narrative, which to tell you the truth she has been seriously considering)

The ‘Cant’ is the name of the ship (short for Canterbury, in the long tradition of giving ships connections to heavy literature: Nostromo, Gilgamesh, Canterbury etc).

“Even if we manage it, torpedoes designed to disable the Cant would make us into a greasy stretch of vacuum.”

“All right,” Naomi said. “What else have we got?”

“Nothing. Very smart boys in the naval labs have already thought of everything we are going to think of in the next eight minutes,” Holden said. Saying it out loud meant admitting it to himself.


Stay tuned.
