Black the mysterious Pulse was sent by a highly intelligent intergalactic species that called themselves the Ascendants It soon becomes clear this alien race isn’t just interested in communication they are capable of rewriting human DNA in an astonishing process they call the Elevation Five years after the Pulse acclaimed journalist Keith Thomas sets out to make sense of the event that altered the world Thomas travels across the country to interview members of the task force who grappled to decode the Pulse and later disseminated its exact nature to worried citizens He interviews the astron Thank you to NetGalley and Atria books for my free advanced review copy All thoughts and opinions are my ownThis is an interesting one In the fine tradition of unconventionally formatted scifi rooted in the real world think Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel Dahlia Black sets out to tell a uniue and fascinating story Something in outer space is sending a transmission that can rewrite human DNA And the rewritten people either died from the strain of the change or vanishedThis book is set 5 years later in the form of a non fiction book about the events focusing on Dr Dahlia Mitchell who discovered the transmission and soon became the face of the end of the world as we know it The book takes the form of interviews transcripts of conversations diary entries letters and phone calls with small bits of narrator driven text in between The style created a very interesting narrative distance that I found really enhanced the story It gave the author the freedom to deviate from a small group of characters instead bringing in anecdotes from victims and survivors around the country By breaking up the information and giving us many different viewpoints the narrator was able to really develop this worldUnfortunately the pace dropped off uite a bit in the second half The individual component stories lacked the tension that earlier anecdotes possessed And the conspiracy theory seemed thrown in as an afterthought; it popped up a few times throughout but didn't seem to have overarching ramifications in the present world ie the world in which this story is a newly published nonfiction I started wondering why it mattered which is when the formatting was really losing its weightI did like the characters and the attention to detail The footnotes were fun and made the style seem real I'm definitely going to look into reading this author's previous book and will keep an eye out for any future stories If you want an unconventional scifi tale set in what is essentially our world as we know it this is a great book to pick up In the Land of Silence of rewriting human DNA in an astonishing process they call the Elevation Five years after the Pulse acclaimed journalist Keith Thomas sets The Countess of Flatbroke out to make sense Reste avec moi: Notre combat of the event that altered the world Thomas travels across the country to interview members The Brothers Keepers of the task force who grappled to decode the Pulse and later disseminated its exact nature to worried citizens He interviews the astron Thank you to NetGalley and Atria books for my free advanced review copy All thoughts and Vytržení (Andělé, opinions are my Miss Dont Touch Me ownThis is an interesting Les mecanismes de l'attraction one In the fine tradition Would Someone Please Explain?

Summary Æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Keith Thomas

Omers who initially doubted Black’s discovery of the Pulse an error that critics say led to the world’s uick demise Thomas also hears from witnesses of the Elevation and people whose loved ones vanished in the Finality an event that to this day continues to puzzle Pulse researchers even though theories abound about the Ascendants’ motivation Including never before published transcripts from task force meetings diary entries from Black and candid interviews with Ballard Thomas also shows in Dahlia Black how a select few led their country in its darkest hours toward a new level of humanity Like World War Z but with aliensFull disclosure I received a free e ARC for review through Netgalley Trigger warning for violence and mental health issues including suicideIn 1977 the whole world turned towards the stars We wanted to believe there was intelligent life somewhere out there And we hoped that if we could reach them maybe they’d reach back Voyager 1 this satellite dish with bristling antenna was a message in a bottle Our way of letting the galaxy know we existed That we were out here if anyone wanted to find us Over the next forty years the probe flew past Jupiter and Saturn before it drifted into the void swallowed up by a silent universe Or so we thought Truth is our message didn’t go unheard The universe reached back and changed everything Not with war or an invasion but with a whisper Almost overnight all that we knew transformed And I saw it happenI am not an incubator but my head has become an executableOn October 17 2023 a rouge astronomer named Dahlia Mitchell unwittingly picks up a signal originating from farthest reaches of space Rather than the sound of a dying star or an errant transmission from the breakroom microwave Dahlia and her colleagues uickly realize that this signal is intentional complex and was most likely purposefully directed at earth by the members of an intelligent species The signal is dubbed the Pulse Code owing to its similarity to a computer code as opposed to say an attempt at communication or contact Before the president and her cabinet can formulate an action plan the Pulse begins working its nerdy magic Once received the Pulse got right down to business altering the brains of roughly 30% of the earth's population Initially those affected experienced visual and auditory hallucinations They saw heard felt and tasted things others couldn't from electromagnetic radiation and ultraviolet colors to the ultrasonic songs of mice and insects and gravitational waves One woman was able to taste things with her fingers like a fly Many claimed to be able to see ghosts Before long the Elevated as they would be known manifested enhanced cognitive abilities; they could calculate new forms of mathematics develop innovative computer algorithms uncover unseen biological processes and create unimaginable works of art In the end they simply vanished pulled perhaps into that other dimension they saw overlaid on top of our own Yet many as much as 15% of the infected by some accounts succumbed to the changes prior to the Finality their bodies too weak to withstand the demands placed on them In a scant five years the global population dropped from 77 billion to 25 billion In addition to the 3 billion people killed or disappeared by the Ascendant aka our alien overlords billions were murdered in the resulting violence and chaos Now it's five years on and a reporter named Keith Thomas is trying to make sense of the Pulse Code Disclosure How One Woman's Discovery Led to the Greatest Event in Human History is the result Thomas weaves together original interviews with historical documents police transcripts diary entries and illicit files in order to deconstruct the Pulse and its aftermath So this is a really fun read and comparisons to World War Z are spot on I enjoy the change of pace that faux nonfiction books constructed of various files offer and Dahlia Black is no exception It's kind of like World War Z in this way but with aliens Or like Sylvain Neuvel's Themis Files trilogy but with a whimper instead of a bang The latter has giant weaponized alien robots so there's that I had a lot of um fun following Thomas on this ride as he imagines what a world suddenly devoid of than half its population might look like Fun in scare uotes because many of the events outlined here are downright horrifying particularly because they have happened in the past and will no doubt replicate themselves in the future Just take the reference to deepfakes which I just learned about on an episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee a few short months ago used four years from now to foment mob violence against the Elevated There's also a great conspiracy theory subplot that adds another layer of intrigue and general gruesomeness to the story Yes I'm talking about the girl with two spinal columns Dahlia Black is a great summer read that would also make a great summer blockbuster Just don't do it like Brad Pitt's World War Z okay That shit was disappointing PS I also await the comic book adaptation Feeding Frenzy (Hardy Boys: Undercover Brothers, of the Pulse an error that critics

For fans of World War Z and the Southern Reach Trilogy a suspenseful oral history commemorating the five year anniversary of the Pulse the alien code that hacked the DNA of Earth’s population and the response team who faced the world changing phenomenon Voyager 1 was a message in a bottle Our way of letting the galaxy know we existed That we were out here if anyone wanted to find us Over the next forty years the probe flew past Jupiter and Saturn before it drifted into the void swallowed up by a silent universe Or so we thought Truth is our message didn’t go unheard Discovered by Dr Dahlia In Cold Blood as a first contact novelTruman Capote’s 1965 novel about his meticulous breakdown and analysis of a horrific murder in Kansas set the literary world on its end by crafting a non fiction novel Capote put together a mountain of evidence and detail surrounding the crime as well as exhaustive study of the murderers victims and the worlds that had created both Similarly Max Brooks in his 2006 novel World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War used a uniue narrative techniue whereby he described the recent zombie apocalypse by means of personal accounts from survivors Taking the template from Studs Terkel’s 1984 The Good War Brooks crafted a tale that was both personal in detail and epic in scopeAuthor Keith Thomas as given us an alien first contact story that borrows from these two styles to give us a uniue study of an alien story that has transformed humanityA scientist looks back after the aliens landed and tries to makes sense of the changes wrought while paying a sympathetic eye for detail of the aliens themselves and a discerning narrative for all concernedMost notable is Thomas’ painstaking attention to detail in his world building He clearly spent great effort in crafting the backstory for his tale and then describing with a gifted storyteller’s voiceGood SF  A free copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review thanks to Atria Books
