O is for Old World


Old World would be like what we have in the 21st century. With many conveniences thanks to technology and other innovations. After the Nuclear Wars many things like airplanes, cellphones and the internet became a thing of the past. By the time Kale meets Deidra in Sacrifice Her, she has no idea what any of these things are. Whether her people's ancestor's from after the Nuclear Wars intentionally decided to leave this information out for their descendants or something more mysterious was involved is unknown.

  3. Dunno about being in the old world...I'm doing heaps of washing without a machine now, and it isn't a lot of fun.

  4. The future doesn't look bright. But like Lynda said, I could do without cell phones.

  5. Seems like the future is going to get all medieval on our ass.

  6. I'm not big on flying, so not having airplanes wouldn't bother me at all. Cell phones I wouldn't miss much, either. That aspect of this harsh world doesn't sound too bad :)

  7. I'm guessing something mysterious!

  8. I wonder how many people would know how to survive without all our modern technology.

  10. When we were younger there wasn't much of cell phones or the internet. We would just convert and life you be simpler.

  11. Interesting. SO is that an unknown the characters need to search out or is it something that's just been lost?

  12. I think there would be a bit of a shock for the initial survivors without computers and smart phones, but much of that technology wouldn't be usable after a nuclear war. Not all that hard to fry all that. Even a big solar flare would interfere with electronics.

    I'd miss the computer, in some ways, but there is lot to be said for the simple life. :-)

  13. The idea of a world without cell phones almost makes me think longingly of a nuclear war.

    Any chance a bomb could be developed that would not impact musical playback?

  14. Cool. A day unplugged sounds nice, but a lifetime of it would really stink.

  15. I love the "old-world" concept. Have you read Partials? he does Old-world very well :)

  16. My theory is that they left out all this technological information for a purpose. something to do with keeping individuals and their society in check.

  17. A little less of everything technical might actually be better. IMO.

  18. Just like in the past, books would have been for rich people and everyone else would be kept ignorant.

    LOL, I lived without internet for most of my life ;)

  19. Yes, today I hope that this is the old world, and is to come that much better!

  20. Imagine moving backwards rather than forwards like that? To lose so much.

  21. Thank you very much for putting me on your blogroll, I'll put in my section of poetry and prose.

  22. Nice detail there with today's conveniences as old world in that land and time. Interesting premise in this book. Writer’s Mark

  23. I love that...the idea of things ending and then beginning again but in a different way. It's like getting a chance to correct the mistakes of the past. Maybe not having all that stuff would be a good thing. Who knows?

  24. I think I've commented this already, but I personally struggle with books that are totally in a future world or fantasy world with no explanation as to how that world ties to the one that I know. Things like characters uncovering the "old world" really make a book seem so much more like a "This could happen" and therefore, really excite me when they're included.
