Review by: Tim Candler on Nov. 4, 2015 :
I enjoyed the book. Did get a little confused sometimes. Thought the idea of having to chose someone to execute so that a species might be led to a better place, most interesting and well handled. And too it was difficult to see a genuine, psycho type baddie, which added to the flow of ideas as events proceeded. Always interesting what people think is the right thing to do. And I have to agree work, rest, repeat might have benefits to the authority and drawbacks for those engaged in it. Except maybe Ely who like all of us kind of grasping for what's right and what's wrong. The apocalypse, I thought well done. And the Earth recovering to a possible new dawn is always a good dream. I also think I saw humor in the new names being adopted by the tower dwelling society. But mostly I wonder what will happen next. At least what ever does happen next might happen in fresh air. Five star reviews are not often trusted. I surely don't. So don't judge my enjoyment of this story by it's rating.
