"'Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he finds passages which seem to be confidences or sides hidden from all else and unmistakably meant for his ear; the profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader; the profound thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind and heart."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson The Prologue starts with a list of events happened in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Excerpts are from newspapers articles around the world.
You can search for each of the news articles on google. Also, comments from "officials" are verbatim. Similar strange animal deaths continue unresolved.
The story, on purpose, starts with the confusing life--and manifest lack of information--of characters that, as with the vast majority of us, live their life focusing on a very little world around themselves. Then something happens, and the "heros" arch starts.The novel, to the more shrewd reader, describes what our world is: we focus on money, we are not looking at what happens around us, we already live in the apocalypse. Our real life world tells us we live in a spiritual apocalypse.-------------------------------
Why on earth Earth becomes Eridu in the "Daimones Trilogy"?Every name in the trilogy bears a symbolic meaning.
Eridu was long considered the earliest city in southern Mesopotamia, and is still today argued to be the oldest city in the world. Located 12 km southwest of Ur, Eridu was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew about temples, almost in sight of one another. In Sumerian mythology, Eridu was originally the home of Enki, who was considered to have founded the city, later known by the Akkadians as Ea. His temple was called E-Abzu, as Enki was believed to live in Abzu, an aquifer from which all life was believed to stem.
Eridu, also transliterated as Eridug, means "mighty place" or "guidance place".
Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Publishing Book Awards - "Massimo Marino's Diamones is a compelling story that shows the full range of the human condition through otherworldly examples. The what-ifs in this story will leave readers with bone-chilling concerns. This book is sure to have readers yearning for more from this author. I like the packaging of this book. The front cover is definitely eye catching and compelling. The story blurb on the back offers just enough to whet a prospective readerâ€™s desire to open the book and start reading. The quality of the materials rivals that of the most successful books on the market. The prologue is masterfully crafted. First person narrative enables readers to get into the skin of the characters. Marino does an excellent job of making the people in the story sympathetic. Dialogue rings true to each character."
