    One thought on “The Demi-Monde: Winter”

    1. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature One acronym and murder will be done To train soldiers for different high stress combat scenarios, the U.S military has developed a virtual reality game called The Demi Monde The game world is divided into different sections with boundaries like spokes on a wheel These adjacent sections are overpopulated and made up of different mixtures of races and cultures that should clash and create wars In addition, scientists have used the DNA of real historical peo [...]

    2. Whatever happened to Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law Norma Williams I will at the very least give Rod Rees this about his book The Demi Monde Winter He is an ambitious son of a bitch In his debut novel, he takes cyberpunk, melds it with a certain post steampunk sensibility, adds some nasty historical tones, some outright horror elements, and flings it all headlong into our laps without so much as a casual look out He tries, and he tries very, very hard You can tell there was quit [...]

    3. Read This Review More Like It On My Blog Ambitious is the word best used to describe this melange of various genres, alternate realities, and mishmash of famous, reviled persons from across history Rod Rees has indeed created something very unique and quite wonderfully different with The Demi Monde Winter As the first published part in a four book saga about an alternate reality populated with Dupes or a cyber duplicate, of such nasties and reprobates as Henry VIII, Robespierre, Lucrezia Borgia, [...]

    4. Straight away I ll state that I m intimidated by doorstop books They look like they ll take forever to read, but in the case of The Demi Monde I zipped through it at a blistering pace at least it was blistering for me and I have the papercuts to prove it Rod Rees has constructed a well thought out world populated with characters that you ll love and hate, some purely fictitious, others based on the most vicious and brutal characters out of the pages of history Blending fact with fiction and hist [...]

    5. Now, this is a Winter I can get on board with I started reading this novel on Christmas Day, and what a gift to me I enjoyed it way than expected to the point that I could barely drag myself away to celebrate with friends Why the limited expectations Well, I was unfamiliar with the author, but even I was wary of a science fictiony sounding premise The novel does indeed intersect the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and thriller, making it a bit difficult to pigeonhole, but it all comes toge [...]

    6. This might be my biggest reader ly booboo as I totally thought this was some kind of steampunk y novel set during the historical demimonde late 1800s, France although to be fair, other than the title, nothing about this book should have lead me to that conclusion Nope, I own this mistake and fortunately, it ended pretty well.The actual premise is that it is 2018 and the Demi Monde is an online training game for US soldiers to experience immersive extreme combat situations in foreign locales with [...]

    7. Two days, and I want I read this book in two days flat and I cannot wait to get my hands on Spring Left at an excellent stopping point, both in keeping you wanting , but not in that frustrating way where someone is on the edge of a cliff about to jump off and leaving you at a point where the story will certainly take a turn Don t get me wrong, this is not an easy read, nor at 500 pages is it a short book But it will drag you into Rees well thought out and impressive world that is The Demi Monde [...]

    8. The basic premise is that in the future the US military created a virtual reality simulation of our world using major cities and randomly inserted the personalities of major criminal figures Mengele, Heydrich, Robespierre, and Torquemada to name a few as well as overpopulating the world The program insures that there will be constant political strife and war amongst the four major populations groups, as they are led by evil masterminds and programmed to have wide variations in political, religio [...]

    9. Thank goodness that s over.The Demi Monde is a computer simulation modelled on real life and history Matrix style, full immersion , used for training purposes As a starting premise, it s a minefield When you want to condense the world into microcosm and rejig it, the question isn t whether it will be problematic, it s how and to what degree Now, as rendered in the book, I found it appalling Euro centric There are five sectors, and three of them are Euro Anglo, Russian Slav, and Romantic which le [...]

    10. Just to put my opinion on everyone s issue with the capitals in words They re not random, as people are suggesting They are used because the Demi Monde is a different place to the real world In the Demi Monde, they do capitalise a letter in the middle of words such as HerEticalism , LessBiens , UnFundamentalist etc It s a thing they do to their words regarding beliefs I personally found it easy to read, and I thought it worked really well xD AnyhowOne of the best books I ve ever read by far I lo [...]

    11. I got this book as a free read from , not looking much beyond the little blurb Then I started reading it HOLY CRAP This is a book about what happens in an artificial world where conditions are artificially created to cause strife between groups of people and highly motivated evil leaders are thrown into the mix to drive that strife to warfare all so real world soldiers can learn to fight in the kinds of wars we have now There were things that were hard about it the language of oppression in it r [...]

    12. When I saw The Demi Monde Winter being publicized as a winter release, I had no idea what it was about but the title kept capturing my eye Little did I know what a treat I had in store for me The Demi Monde Winter by Rod Rees is Book 1 in the Demi Monde Saga series Although it could probably best be described as near future sci fi, I believe it has a much broader reach than that This is one genre bending novel It s a thriller, it s dystopian, it s got steampunk elements, it s an action adventure [...]

    13. I m just going to quote from the book and let the rest of you figure out why the book left me with a bad taste in my mouth nuJuism is the religion practiced by the Demi Monde s Sectorless nuJu community nuJuism is an unrelentingly pessimistic religion which teaches that suffering and hardship is life affirming and necessary to prepare nuJus for the rigors to be experienced during the Time of Tribulation a.k.a the End of Days It is a central tenet of nuJuism that there will arise a Messiah who wi [...]

    17. DNF, so no rating.I stopped reading this one I even made it halfway through, but I couldn t handle all the inconsistencies and the stupid premise any longer I really wanted to love it, but I didn t want to continue turning the pages.The Demi Monde is a computer simulation training program for the military The program runs completely on its own, like a highly intelligent and super creepy Sims It s super creepy because they populated the Demi Monde with history s biggest war criminals, like high r [...]

    18. The Demi Monde a computer simulation designed for the US military, peopled by some of the most dangerous and psychopathic characters from history, for training the US military in Asymmetric Warfare Enviroments It is the first simulation product ever to be platformed on and operated by the ABBA quantum computer This computer has enough processing power to simulate sentience in the Dupes the characters in the simulation and herein lies the root of the problem The US military want to shut the simul [...]

    19. The Demi Monde Winter Book I of the Demi Monde Oh The Demi Monde Winter, what do I say about you first It s pretty obvious straight away that this is a very lengthy read I m a fan of Science Fiction and therefore I m used to reading books that border on tomes Still, I m certain that many people are going to be scared off immediately by the hefty weight of this book At 522 pages, this is definitely not a light read That being said, the book actually starts out very well From the first page the re [...]

    20. This is sort of a steampunk though not really fantasy kind of mash up The premise is quite intriguing the US military has built a gaming platform that simulates modern asymmetric warfare environments Soldiers enter the Demi monde as characters kind of like the movie Avatar to train in this Victorian esque world full of duplicates dupes of actual historical persons cue lots of evil baddies Unfortunately, the demi monde seems to be taking on a life of its own and the President s daughter has been [...]

    21. I ve probably had this book on my to read list since it came out A longish plane ride and finding this on a library shelf on a lark later and it turns out that I tripped up on a great read similar to Tad Williams s Otherland.In the near future, the US military has developed a computer program to help train soldiers against a insurgent style of warfare To provide leadership, they uploaded the personality profiles of some of history s greatest psychopaths to help round things out and make things [...]

    22. This was free on my Nook one wintry Friday and oh how glad I am I loved this book so much It was really hard to stop reading it once I got started So many elements that I love, a computer generated world, a strong female character, historical bits, and even some jazz The Demi Monde is a very interesting idea, a super computer built by the military to train soldiers better You jack into it like in the Matrix Neither of those are spoilers, you get as much from the book description, and The Matrix [...]

    23. A monumental effort Rees creates a shadow world representative of the worst of recent human history, gives it a rationale based on the worst of current human politics, and sets it spinning to wreck chaos on its characters The resulting heavily researched and written tome might work better if his touch had been lighter.The story successes or fails based on the reader s acceptance of the premise that human consciousness is independent of the human body It s that same idea exploited in the Matrix m [...]

    24. 4.5 StarsIf you can get through the first bit of this, the plot really gets complex and deep It s so unique and bizarre, and at first I thought I was reading another mediocre, Nook freebie, but I hung in there because the premise was so interesting This book is one of the best books I ve read in a really long time, barring a few logic flaws As of this review, 50% of raters gave the book a four or five star rating I m partial to stories with full immersion virtual realities so your mileage may va [...]

    25. I read about 50 pages and just couldn t get into it I usually like books that take place half in the real world and half in some kind of VR but this one didn t work for me It may have just been too cute It s not the Third Reich it s something that sounds very similar The Fourth something or other that sounds like Reich There s random capitalization of letters within words and I think too many different concepts trying to fit into one world Let s take notorious people from history and elements of [...]

    26. A very clever universe, and an interesting story The setup ended up better than the story I like the main characters, but the overarching plot seems weak Still, I was enjoying the book until the end Every character ended the story in a situation of peril that should have been wrapped up in this book Yes, there is obviously a sequel, but the plot should be sufficient to keep me wanting to read , not does the character survive the next two minutes.

    27. This was a PHENOMENAL idea The summary had me fascinated before I ever picked up the book But what could ve been a good story is completely buried in bizarre words the author made up and characters with no clear motivation or personality just thrown into a strange situation I don t walk away from many books, but this one was trying too hard I m giving it two stars just for the clever concept.
