If you like a certain kind of old school speculative fiction in the Niven/Pournelle/etc. vein, full of Mary Sues and leaden dialogue and lots of ideas, this is probably great. I've realized I'm done with that. If the idea of SCA members, pagan covens and manly outdoorsmen surviving in a world where all of our modern conveniences suddenly stop working sounds awesome, maybe this is for you.I'm sure it doesn't help that I tried to read this right after World War Z, an infinitely better version of a future that's completely messed up.I did not finish this. Not even close.
