It's certainly uneven, and many viewers will find that its reach exceeds its grasp, but The Book of Eli finds the Hughes brothers injecting some fresh stylish fun. Psalm The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. The Book of Eli is a film that is a post-apocalyptic story of a lone man who fights his way across America in order to protect The Bible, that Carnegie, the.
Thank you for any good I may have done, and I'm so sorry about the bad. Thank you for the friend I made. Please watch over her as you have watched over me. Thank you for finally allowing me to rest.
I am so very tired. But I go now to my rest, at peace, knowing that I have done right in my time on this Earth, I fought the good fight. I finished the race. I kept the faith. Cursed be the ground, for our sake. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth, for us, for out of the ground we were taken for the dust that we are I got so caught up in keeping it safe that I forgot to live by what I learned from it.
I know what I heard. I know what I hear. I know I'm not crazy. I need that book. I want that book! A weapon aimed right at the hearts and minds of the weak and the desperate. I have so much of this book in my heart even my body feels too heavy to carry it.
This is genuinely the best anti-hero story that I have ever read and now I have to readjust every other expectation in my life just to match it. How is there so much in Schwab's mind? All I want is to climb inside and revel at all the brilliance. Vicious is best described as a cautionary tale about how everything would be better if college theses were cancelled.
Otherwise, a couple of rich entitled bored grad students would set their minds on gaining a superpower that correlates to the type of near-death experience, coming close to a revolutionary thesis about EOs but opening the seventh seal of the goddamn apocalypse instead.
Victor Vale, however, refuses to accept the pointlessness of revenge and every breath he's taken during his ten years in prison was done with the memory of how it would feel to deck Eli right in his smug bastard face. And by some messed up cosmic sense of karmic justice, three days after his prison break out, Victor Vale manages to excerce a broad persuasion on a motley crew to assist him in destroying Eli: - Mitch, a tattooed, built-like-anwheeler escaped convict with terrible luck who is exceptionally skilled at hacking and happens to immensely enjoy chocolate milk.
A true loss, indeed. Eli is suffering from a severe case of god complexe and is convinced of his own absolute superiority.
I won't even care. All Victor had to do was lie. Both proved frighteningly effective. It's utterly unpredictable, like watching the first domino fall but not knowing which pattern it would produce.
No one writes anti-heroes like Schwab. This book just has so much room in it for the unimaginable and it's utterly captivating. Meet the characters! The word made Victor laugh.
Not just because it was absurd, but because it posed a question. If Eli really was a hero, and Victor meant to stop him, did that make him a villain?
I swear my life is just one unattainable sort of morally mediocre fictional character after another. No really. If the character in a book wears all black and is seemingly selfish and only in it for themselves UNTIL they're dragged kicking and screaming into caring about certain people, then congratulations my good sir I am now yours! I mean? Can we also collectively agree that Victor Vale is really just a delicate orchid?
Attention is his sunshine. Validation is his water. Drama is his dirt.
Because truth is, he's literally only ever wanted Eli's attention. He and Eli were bonded, by blood and death and science.
They were alike, more so now than ever.
