This book haunted my childhood memories for years a mysterious specter the title of which I couldn't recall What incomplete details I had retained eventually proved adeuate for discovery on the internet Once I identified the text it lingered in my unconscious until I happened to be in the juvenile fiction section of the public library one day in my mid 30s Browsing an aisle I turned around and saw the title on the spine before me a spooky beacon of serendipity as I had not been looking for itI checked it out read it to my son and got to relive the experience It does fall short of great fantasy largely due to insubstantial resolutions With a shared world similar to though less distinct than J K Rowling's dichotomy of wizards and muggles the story demanded rational conclusions to what it proposed Aside from the disappointing ending this story was one of my first glimpses into fantasy and abstract concepts of time freedom telepathy sanity and subliminally technology's role in human development It also dealt with death and misery in a way I had never encountered in a children's tale The Silver Crown certainly nurtured a burgeoning philosophical curiosity on my young psyche and O'Brien deserves credit for that Napoléon III et Franceschini Pietri of which I couldn't recall What incomplete details I had retained eventually proved adeuate for discovery La commune de Paris par ceux qui l'ont vécue on the internet Once I identified the text it lingered in my unconscious until I happened to be in the juvenile fiction section Surcouf of the public library Alfred Dreyfus :Cinq années de ma vie : 1894-1899 one day in my mid 30s Browsing an aisle I turned around and saw the title L'art militaire de Napoléon on the spine before me a spooky beacon Louis Napoléon le Grand (Littérature) of serendipity as I had not been looking for itI checked it Journal intégral - 1815-1818 out read it to my son and got to relive the experience It does fall short L'empire des Français, 1799-1815 of great fantasy largely due to insubstantial resolutions With a shared world similar to though less distinct than J K Rowling's dichotomy Le feld-maréchal von Bonaparte : Considérations sur les causes de la grandeur des Français et de leur décadence of wizards and muggles the story demanded rational conclusions to what it proposed Aside from the disappointing ending this story was Napoléon au Portugal : Le triomphe de l'armée luso-britannique annonce la fin de l'empire (1801-1814) one Histoire des troupes suisses au service de France sous le règne de Napoléon 1er of my first glimpses into fantasy and abstract concepts La Tragédie du capitaine Dreyfus of time freedom telepathy sanity and subliminally technology's role in human development It also dealt with death and misery in a way I had never encountered in a children's tale The Silver Crown certainly nurtured a burgeoning philosophical curiosity Napoléon on my young psyche and O'Brien deserves credit for that
