    EBOOK DOWNLOAD Against the Tide of Years AUTHOR S.M. Stirling Hmmm an 'OK' successor to Island in the Sea of Time but nothing spectacular The author's focus was on my least favorite characters and the behind the scenes action in the ensuing years between volumes bordered on unbelievable Necessa

Against the Tide of Years

Summary Against the Tide of Years S.M. Stirling Þ 2 Free read Read & download ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Þ S.M. Stirling In the years since the Event the Republic of Nantucket has done its best to recreate the better ideas of the modern age But the evils of its time resurface in the person of William Walker. This is the second book in the Nantucket trilogy in which the island of Nantucket is thrown back in time from 1988 AD to 1250 BC Without the newness factor from the first book I had slightly mixed feelings about this one I m still enjoying the general story and it s great fun to read about modern day Americans meeting and interacting with ancient cultures I still enjoy reading about the challenges they face with limited modern supplies and their innovations as they try to make up for that lack with the tools they have available This book had a few medical related sections than the first book anyway and I thought those were particularly interestingOn the other hand the things I like about the series are often pushed aside in favor of battles Lots and lots of battles To me they have a very repetitive and same y feel I m not sure that my boredom with this is entirely a matter of my not being into reading about battles It s true I m not really that into them but I still fondly remember the six book Belisarius series that I read 35 years ago I loved those books and they were chock full of battles In this series every now and then I do get caught up in the action and it holds my attention but often my eyes glaze over Also I m only moderately invested in the charactersI m giving this the same 35 star rating I gave to the first book but this time I m rounding down to 3 stars on Goodreads instead of rounding up I do like it well enough to go ahead and finish up the trilogy

I really enjoy the premise of this series which is much like the 1632 series only in the Bronze Age but the execution is less perfect than could be desired To first cover the elements he handles well the cultures and speech of the various groups feels amazingly authentic These are alien cultures and he introduces them with aplomb The technological innovations are plausible and the complexity impressiveThe issues I have with the book largely come from the scale speed and characters The scale of these books is astounding covering everything from Nantucket to South America to South Africa to China to Europe and the Middle East I consider this absurd There is no way that a group of 5000 people would be able to appear all over the world in such a short time with all new technology The time it would take just to reach China by sail is so high it wouldn t be worth the effort More so when the seas are so dangerous and backup unavailable A global economy just isn t possible with maybe a dozen newly built ships It s a luxury they couldn t afford and really stands out from the generally realistic attempt to explore what it would mean to reconstruct technology from ancient componentsThe speed is another major problem Eight years have passed here and that may sound a long time but it s nothing on the kind of social change scale we re talking here Everyone adapts to change far too uickly and they re generally willing to adapt their superstitions as well Also too fast are the cultures adapting to modern weapons Yes modern technology would be a major asset to an ambitious Bronze Ager But it would take decades to build up the sort of mass production guns and technology that you see at work here And even longer to change such attitudes Just look at Japan it took them 70 years to get from a feudal society to one capable of matching the Western world And they had an organized society and basic technological knowhow that Bronze Age societies couldn t even dream ofCharacters are the last major problem Some of them are good Marian Alston and Swindapa are prime examples of that Both are fun exciting characters with uniue character traits who you can root for William Walker makes a great villain for all that they overfocus on his story But does anyone remembercare about Mayor Cofflin Or the various Hollards We get dozens of leads here but only rarely are they given any sort of personality or backstory Having a large cast can be a good thing but the story really doesn t need them The first book was fun because it mainly followed Marian and Swindapa This book had no central character and a floppy plot Something was neededI still enjoyed this book but it no longer feels like a carefully developed world ala 1632 At its best it feels like visiting an ancient culture To my joy we finally move beyond the unknown Sun People and Fiernans and encounter solid Bronze Age cultures like Babylonians Hittites and Mycenaean Greeks And discovering their world is indeed glorious At its worst the book feels like a random assortment of events thrown together with no rhyme or reason And unfortunately that is the foundation in which the few jewels shine I m happy to have read it but I doubt I ll look back on it or seek out further books once I m done with the series
