    It s not clear what caused the apocalypse in this story the Rememberers seem to ve been far too narrowly focused on useful knowledge.The argument is made that the people in this world are hospitable, and try to negotiate solutions to conflict I see no sign of it The protagonists encounter at least four types of human or other intelligent life, and in no case do they make any attempt to negotiate they simply attack or evade There are arguments that negotiations have been proven futile yet in at l [...]

    I enjoy Andre Norton, although the theme tends to be the same in a wide variety of settings This one is a post nuclear world of mutants and scavenging the wreckage of the cities of the Before Ones Always Norton has 2 protagonists a woman and a man, and their gender differences seem to make them uncompatible until they discover that their differences complement each other It s good for light reading.

    An enjoyable, if lightweight, post apocalyptic adventure tale A young blacksmith and a young psychic must leave their homes and wander the ruins of civilization destroyed in a cataclysmic natural disaster There are some crazy mutants along the way, but I found the long wandering middle chapters dull and slow moving The overly long middle section means the climactic showdown at the end feels rushed and muddled I don t know if Norton had a maximum page count set by her publisher, but I have the fe [...]

    I enjoyed many of Norton s books when I was a pre teen, but they do not read well as an adult Her writing style is stilted and erratic she likes long complex sentences with obscure vocabulary The passages just do not flow smoothly In this book there are the elements for a good adventure post apocalyptic world, an outcast hero, a young woman who is the sole survivor of her tribe, their trip across the wastelands where they meet mutants, monsters, an underground world, and a computerized Wizard of [...]

    I ve been wanting to read this book for a long time, simply because it s got an awesome title However it seems, sadly, from the bit I ve read so far and the reviews here that it s going to be like all her other mediocre books, instead if he awesome I have hoped for sigh oh well You write 80 books in your lifetime, they won t all be paragons of originality but I really wish it didn t seem so formulaic I discovered her when I was young and I ve always considered her one of my favorite authors, bu [...]

    Sander was a metalsmith who should have succeeded his father as the new master smith But everyone thought that he was too young He sets out to the ruins of the Before people to try to llearn their skills and prove himself He meets Fanyi who is at the ruins for her own reason A good clean fantasy for young adults.

    Fantasy in sci fi clothing So typical of the time, the technology that might as well be a magical sword for as vague as the science is.It s hard to read as an adult, but I loved this stuff as a kid It s a good gateway drug for real science fiction.

    This kind of fell apart at the end but before that it was a fun, light weight post apocalyptic story of barbarians and mutants duking it out in the ruined wasteland How could I not love those parts
