George R. R. Martin – The Glass Flower Audiobook
the glass flower was published in 1986 and attacks with the Last Story George Foreman published that takes place in the Thousand world’s universe although later he did begin a novel called Avalon that was set aside for Ice and Fire the glass flower stands apart from the other stories and the Falcon world universal bit as it’s not that independent it doesn’t just take place in the universe but it’s in many ways about the Thousand world’s universe in the background of the other stories we’ve heard about a pantheon of legendary characters that have shaped the man round Jones and Tobago twin someone Wahlberg Stephen Colbert Northstar.
some we know little about like Wahlberg but foremost without no match the glass flower grabs one of these were the characters in creative entire story around him we finally find out about Claire Lomas but the story is not just about him it’s about body swapping we see exactly where George RR Martin first started to explore the idea of second lives in fact the term second Life time is used in the story and the story is not just Freaky Friday now the story is about the blending of consciousness and a full explanation of what the soul is it’s definitely hard not to think about brand working summer and not knowing your brands and summer begins how your story begins with our protagonist siren who runs the game .
she is a body swap it was lived on many worlds now I’ve tried to make sense of her travels and geography but she says she was born on at which we don’t know anything about but then she moves to Eric in which is probably named after a storm Jones which is in the ceiling plaster which is probably named after Celia Marsh I am not a silly in cluster is likely near the temperature of El as they once went to war with a veil world called damp Julian heads to some world called shamdas are and then rugs hope which is also in the ceiling plaster the mentor vagabond vagabond is definitely in the gems on the other side of Avalon and then she had stood and turned itself in the Vale to Gulliver which is on the other side of Avalon again and finally to Lilith probably named after a lower which seems to be on the edge of human space planet is far away from the man ran 30 years from Avalon the point is Siren has been around now of course her being from the planet Ashes very much intentional as the order for the burial of the Dead hasn’t it Ashes to ashes dust to dust insurance certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life story has quite a few references in fact sirena self is a standing for Jesus Jesus 12 apostles offers Reservoir action and is built obsidian Castle where everyone must pass through her house ticket to the game this is in reference to the Gospel of John where Jesus says no one comes to the father except through me and so the action of our story begins when a cyborg claiming to be Claire Lomas arrives and he won’t say rainy to help them body swap this cyborg those seems to be full robot with no humanity lieutenant other stories we was 1st grade explore and founder of the Academy of human knowledge on Avalon and we know plenty of character is associated with this Academy Jeffrey lion and Swan from the plague star and curly the Brand and it’s crew from nightflyers they were all academics from the Academy from dying of the light study there with an interesting dichotomy siren represents religion or Claire Lomas presents knowledge and science anyway the founding of the Academy on havalon happened close to 1000 years ago so naturally.
so rain is a bit sceptical that the cyborg is truly clearing Amos she even by claiming that she is Jesus Christ and related to the mind and body the cyborg knows this displaying the fact that is very well travelled of course we know the title wisdom from Ice and Fire as well The Alchemist use it and it’s also a rough translation of the title maji that Mary must do and others hold so George r.r. Martin seems to be a fan of using the title Wisdom anyway the cyborg has come to play Sirens body swapping game this.
confuses say rain as the cyborg is already immortal the whole point of the game is to gain life the cyborg explains that he wants death as death and life at the same so rain believes them to be opposites Nevis declaration at death and life of the same gets into the entire point
