When this was written, in 1935, Nazism was not yet fully exposed, nor was communism. It is remarkable that the author set up the dichotomy so clearly between communal society and individual effort and reward.
Creative, interesting and worthwhile
totalitarian governments were on the rise, and is an
allegory of the first order.
This is the tale of a son who goes underground in
search of his missing father, who is obsessed with
the Roman Wall and the glory that was Rome. The father
has found a way to get under the ancient wall to look
for a lost Roman civilization. What the son finds when
he searches for his father is a nightmare world filled
with horrible beasts and even more horrible humans, who
have had their minds and souls murdered in the service
of the State.
This book is also an exciting story about a dangerous
journey. Mostly, though, it's a lesson in the importance of
one's individuality and how it must be preserved and protected
at all costs, or mankind is lost.
I strongly recommend this book.
