Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin.

The latest novel from Robert Harris: chosen as a Book of the Year by The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, Telegraph, Mail on Sunday, and Express.

What if your future lies in the past?

Dusk is gathering as a young priest, Christopher Fairfax, rides across a silent land.

It’s a crime to be out after dark and Fairfax knows he must arrive at his destination – a remote village in the wilds of Exmoor – before night falls and curfew is imposed.

He’s lost and he’s becoming anxious as he slowly picks his way across a countryside strewn with the ancient artefacts of a civilisation that seems to have ended in cataclysm.

What Fairfax cannot know is that, in the days and weeks to come, everything he believes in will be tested to destruction, as he uncovers a secret that is as dangerous as it is terrifying....

Good story, well told

Apart from a fast flowing tale it is also food for thought. And the twist at the end... Brilliant.

Gute Idee aber Geschichte verzettelt sich

Story beginnt gut, interessant spannend aber ab der Mitte zu langatmig und verzettelt. abrupter Schluss.

Enttäuschend

Tolle Idee, schlecht umgesetzt. Man vermisst eine Spannungskurve, und am Ende fragt man sich, warum man das Buch überhaupt gehört hat.

Interesting Plot

An interesting concept with a weakness in technical details such as how do plastic bags turn up in a medieval setting Entertaining

Im Endeffekt zu kurz

Eigentlich nicht übel, aktuelle Thematik, inhaltlich ist Vieles erwartbar ausgestaltet, dennoch insgesamt kein Fehlkauf.

A vehicle of a book

The 1st book I ever read where the cast is filling a paper cut role to convey a message. A new kind of fable without animals and as long as a novel. The quality of the story is great however. Rich characters and a scene just like a summer nights dream. Utterly enthralling disturbingly true.

Excellent idea for a story, well told.

A super idea for a story. It really makes one think at many different levels. I can only reccomend this as an almost perfect book.

Very thrilling story

I fancy the mixture of history and sci-fi. So I overlooked the fact that in the 15th century no-one smoked a pipe yet, people did not use handkerchiefs and clocks only existed - if at all - in steeples. Sorry for spoiling. I wrote the first review during the third chapter.

Foreseeable Harris-Plot gone Post-Apocalyptic

Whilst his Cicero was stupendously written, the journalist Harris when having to come up with a plot of his own merely varies his time-tested (and admittedly best-selling) template of 'young man stumbling over ghastly global conspiracy’. Hence if one knows his ‘Ghost’ or ‘Fatherland’ … In the post-apocalyptic medieval genre Mark Lawrence’s ‘Prince of Thorns’ (cynical, gory and much for inventive) and its related novels, namely the complementary yet subtly humorous 'Prince of Fools' trilogy, outclass this ‘Harris, as usual’ by far and in every respect.

Interesting idea, but execution a bit lacking

Set in a post apocalyptic world, after humanity has risen again to a state resembling the 16th century, we witness the adventure of one priest of the true fate being corrupted and trying to uncover more of the past then the church permits. Interesting setting, but plot is a bit lacking overall.
