Good Post-Apocalyptic Read

I liked this book even though it had some flaws. The story took a while to get going. Also, when the Illyrians were on their quest, it would've been nice to be able to recognize some of the remnants of the "roadmakers" handiwork - besides the roads. Either way, I wou...
I liked this book even though it had some flaws. The story took a while to get going. Also, when the Illyrians were on their quest, it would've been nice to be able to recognize some of the remnants of the "roadmakers" handiwork - besides the roads. Either way, I would recommend this book to folks who like post-apocalyptic reads.

pointless and boring. a group of people in the far future travel across the ruins of the past looking for answers and never really find them, and i was annoyed by the author's constant anti-religious rhetoric, i like fiction books that entertain, not books disguised as a story when they are actually vehicles for the authors personal political agendas, if you're looking for a good post-apacolyptic novel, this is not it, lame, lame, lame

    Only so-so...

    The idea of the book was fascinating; however, most of the book was spent recounting the journey to GET to the place of interest that was so intriguing in the first place. The journey was NOT the major focus of the book (if it was intended to be, it failed), and McDevitt spent little to no time at the end of the book 'exploring' for the reader the intriguing final destination, opting instead to sum everything up in a brief epilogue. In addition to all of this, Jack McDevitt has a penchant for writing about irresponsible, reckless archaeologists which is actually annoying in this book (although it is barely acceptable in other books.) I believe this book could have been so much better.
