I thought this book might become one of my favorites when I started reading. Basically, this is my favorite genre, and Gordon R. Dickson started his story well enough with a comparatively plausible socio-economic collapse of the whole society. The book held its own right upto the halfway mark. But then it started to become monotonous and nothing major happened even at the end.

But nonetheless, if you are a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, this is not that bad piece of work to have a shot at. ( )

Been awhile since I read this one, but I still remember that it was a great book. It's the world after a total economic collapse. Well written and it moves right along. I think I need to read it again. :D ( )

Perhaps the most human of the dystopian genre, Dickson never explains the cause of the collapse of modern society, but instead focuses on the aftermath through an unlikely protagonist. ( )

A good old fashioned postapocalyptic United States of America type story.

The place has collapsed for no real completely specified reasons, and a young man ends up on a trip across the middle.

He picks up a lupine companion, and the detail of wolf life is definitely the most interesting part of the book.

In depth research shows in this book. At times it rambles on a bit but for most this will be a joy.
An enjoyable adventure read. ( )
