Just After the Fall by Eric James-Olson

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tale!, 18 May 2014
I don't often give 5 stars, but this was a very good read. I was totally there and could imagine each scene with ease. The writing was vivid and the plot was clever. It was a page turner and it made me think in new ways. The whole story stitched together beautifully and even though it was part of a series, I didn't feel lost with the story. I'd recommend it for a read, especially if you are into Sci Fi, religion or politics.

Classic tale, but full of obvious plot holes. Beautifully written, but overwritten at times and underwritten at plot twists that were more critical. I often missed what just occurred and had to re-read passages.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mercifully short, 9 April 2014
This is a commentary on many of the evils of the world: colonisation, exploitation and racism. But, it was a drudgery to read, the plot was thin and tediously slow. I was wishing an arrow might reach Marlow and end his flow of conscience ramble. I hated this book. It contains beautiful words and language, but the structure is awful.
