This is a book where spoilers are absolutely unavoidable if you want to write any sort of review so I ll make the general observations upfront before getting into spoiler territoryThis book is a very different animal from most Harris books I ve read It s very atmospheric and rather constrained with most of the story being told in narration While written in the third person we never leave Christopher Fairfax s head to see elements beyond his perception and this absolutely works The style is vaguely claustrophobic and unsettling but never drifts into actually being scary The only issue here is that Harris has an unfortunate tendency to overuse the pronoun he in conversations between two male characters leading to a certain amount of confusion Dialogue flows naturally but doesn t predominateAnd that s really all that can be said before dashing into spoiler territory It s an odd book where the biggest twist comes before page 40Ready Last chance to turn backDon t say I didn t warn youview spoilerThe whole scenario turns upside down once we ve gotten into the interval between his first and second sleep Biphastic sleep is what this refers to and it was apparently the normal way humans slept until the industrial revolution two periods of nightly sleep bisected by a period of wakefulness As Christopher is taking this atmospheric moment to review the contents of a dead priests library he notices heretical artifacts antiuarian books dangerous texts plastic some sort of paganistic sculpture an iPhone And that s when you realize you ve been had It s not 1468 it s something like 2827That s right You blew it up damn you Damn you all to hellIt s a pretty well unveiled reveal The whole thing is discussed so casually that you have to do a double take and reread the last sentence carefully The uestion uickly becomes whether that s just stupid or if there s something behind it I ve read the book and I m honestly still not sure Is it clever to hide the apocalyptic future behind a pseudomedieval cover for 40 pages What s the point Just to confound reviewers and cover blurb writers who have to pretend this is all a medieval adventureThe reason I accept it is perhaps because it is so mundane a reveal We hear of some things that we didn t see before eyeglasses dynamite pocketwatches but we re not in a whole new world now that the revelation has been made It still feels like the same setting In fact if you were paying attention you ll have noticed oddities beforehand a grandfather clock in the house parakeets 1500 year old churches built 32 BC It helps that we only see the world in shadows until after we knowI never lost my doubts but the world does work within the context of the story It s fundamentally interesting to see priests and other Medieval personages picking through documents and digging up ruins And to combine that with a HorizonZero Dawn type uncovering of the past is great They do this investigating against the will of the reborn church who holds not unreasonably that the apocalypse was due to mankind s sin of pride Electricity as heresy is a new one on me Harris is a good enough author to make this world work too The church is not just some dread organization of inuisitors they re a response to the greatest disaster of all time The world is not an apocalyptic hell it s one that recovered somewhat and is regaining its feet That makes it an interesting place to visitIt helps that the characters are good too from the doubtful priest to the determined widow and the budding factory owner I enjoyed meeting these people and coming to understand their place in all thisI do have some ualms I do not believe for a moment that history repeats itself Running themes do errors remanifest each generation has to reassert itself against the old but that s a long way from repeating the middle ages down to almost the last detail The logic here is that all of modern society is built to be temporary so we can replace it with the next big thing Skyscrapers will collapse glass windows will break the Cloud will go down and take all of mankind s vast knowledge with it All that will be left are the old stone buildings that were made to last Fine as far as it goes but who will come out on top during those early struggles as civilization collapses The Church sure I can see that People need something to believe in Latin I ve a harder time with but I can believe the rest But who will the most powerful warlords be Those who can harness whatever technology they can recover and direct it towards killing people Expect poison gas explosives tanks rockets revolvers to stick around Oh and electricity too since they ll need that to power their war machines The devices they build won t be as good as what we have but they d hardly be lost either We should have a much eclectic world than merely Middle Ages II The Sleepening hide spoiler Pure heart enlightened mind the Zen journal letters of Maura Soshin

It is impossible to discuss this book with any level of intelligence without revealing aspects that some of you will deem spoilers Ye have been warned Any childish rants on my thread and ye will be cursed for all eternity Thy spawn will also be cursed until the end of days Which frankly isn t that far in the future so as curses go it is not as dire as it sounds We know that almost every person including children was issued with a device that enabled them to see and hear one another however far apart in the world they might be that these devices were small enough to see and hear one another however far apart in the world they might be that these devices were small enough to be carried in the palm of ones hand that they gave instant access to all the knowledge and music and opinions and writings in the world and that in due course they displaced human memory and reasoning and even normal social intercourse an enfeebling and narcotic power that some say drove their possessors mad to the extent that their introduction marked the beginning of the end of advanced civilization The end of the world rests in the palm of your hand It is probably sitting right next to you at the moment waiting patiently for you to stroke it and make it come to life or maybe you are holding it right now as you read this review on the screen We have the most amazing creation that has ever been invented on this planet resting between our ears yet we choose to cede control from our own organically grown they charge extra for that in vegetables and fruit to a flat impersonal just to be clear you really don t have an intimate personal relationship with your device despite the amount of attention you give to it rectangular device I used to be a fan of Steve Jobs despite his assholish tendencies Now I m becoming and convinced that the era of Homo Sapiens might be coming to an end and it isn t Death riding on the pale horse but the man from Apple That is where we are today but I really need to take you 800 years in the future to meet a young priest named Christopher Fairfax who has been dispatched to the ass end of nowhere by the Bishop to oversee the funeral arrangements of a heretical rud priest Fairfax is not happy about these circumstances He enjoys his life at the Bishop s court and being sent on this errand makes him feel like he is actually being punished He is not going by train plane or automobile Those conveyances are long buried in the past so buried that most don t even know they ever existed He is making this journey Middle Ages style by horse The world has evolved to the zenith of human capabilities but because we have become so reliant on computers and other devices to run our lives we are incapable of picking up the pieces when a catastrophic event happened that turns our electronic devices into expensive paperweights Our purpose is not to propose counter measures to avert any of these potential catastrophesbut to devise strategies for the days weeks months and years following such a disaster with the aim of the earliest possible restoration of technical civilisations Good thought right If you can t stop the speeding train from heading for the chasm maybe you can unhook a car or two to have something to rebuild with Something goes very very wrong and the age of electronics is over Those who have curiosity about how the ancients us did this or that are risking being branded a heretic Whenever there is a bobble in the universe the church is always ready to leap into the breach and this time they intend to keep control No worshiping of idolatrous devices The plan is to keep the population as ignorant as possible so that they never uestion the supremacy of the church ever again Books are burned by the millions What need do thee have to even know how to read Fairfax is away from the Bishop a matter of days and suddenly finds himself becoming obsessed with knowing the truth about the past He is also struggling to resist some very present temptations that could be referred to as the same apples that led to Adam s downfall Faith that cannot withstand the truth is not a faith worth holding The problem is of course that rarely can faith hold up when faced with the temptations of the flesh or real truth Fairfax is frankly doomed or maybe finally finding liberation depending upon what you believe to be the best path for the pursuit of happiness Ignorance is blissI love time travelling forward to go backwards in history Harris as always writes a fast page turning plot that had me zipping through the book I do find that his ending is a bit convoluted or maybe I got distracted by the same apples that are so distracting to Fairfax I actually enjoy spending time with heretics or any people who are
