    A generation has passed since the Change that rendered technology inoperable around the world, and western Oregon has finally achieved a degree of peace. But a new threat has risen in Paradise Valley, Wyoming. A man known as the Prophet presides over the Church Universal and Triumphant, teaching his followers to continue God's work by destroying the remnants of technological civilization they encounter - and those who dare use them.

    Michael says: "Change is not always good, but this book is."
    "Too long"
    Overall

    I love a good book and can enjoy lengthy novels, but I became bored with the drawn out descriptions of the types of plants in the woods, the carvings inside a hall, or the clothing available. I understand the need to describe the setting, but this was overdone at times. I didn't get to the end to make a full review. Perhaps I will try the print edition and see if I enjoy that better. I can then skip the passages that halt the progression of the story. The narration was good. The writer is gifted, don't get me wrong. It is my personal preference for action that encourages this review. You decide for yourself.

    One night when he was 10, Tyler stood in his backyard and watched the stars go out. They flared into brilliance, then disappeared, replaced by an empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives.

    Robert says: "A Classic"

    Overall

    A novel that surprised me. It was new and fresh and something I hadn't heard before. That is unusual for a scifi junkie like me. A few sections were a little slow perhaps mostly because I disliked one of the characters. You will enjoy this book if you like a great deal of science in your fiction. Have fun.
