I liked the plot line of a world where high tech has failed and what follows That Harris sees the rebirth of the medieval is interesting , but predictable given his historical interests This background is really incidental to what is a conventional novel format boy meets girl, we have ecclesiastical baddies, and a hero heroine combo comprising the church and the impoverished landed gentry The war Up North is with the Muslims rather than the Danes, otherwise it s historical business as usual Will someone write a knowledgeable contemporary account of a post tech world please e.g The Death of Grass An interesting premise, and an enjoyable read, but the ending was weird As though he was out in his writing shed and his wife calls him in for dinner so he winds the story up in a single page Having built to the crescendo of the discovery the author runs out of ink, leaving us not so much wanting , but wondering wtf.
