In the first book of John Christopher's classic series, it is the year 2100, and the world is controlled by the machines called Tripods. Life goes on largely as it had in the pre-industrial era, as all of humanity is subject to mental controls which prevent anyone from challenging the established order.
Simplistic plot, great for a kid. Lot of gaps. Reader was unengaging and honestly very easy to tune out (not a good thing).
