I wanted a quick pulp read for entertainment. It was okay, but I have read much better. I'm surprised after learning about screenplays like The Big Sleep, Rio Bravo, and first draft of The Empire Strikes Back.

Written fewer than ten years after Hiroshima, this classic SF novel depicts a post-apocalyptic society rebuilding itself after a nuclear war. No horrors of war are shown, and people live in mostly rural and agrarian groups. Technology is frowned upon, even banned, and no town is permitted to have more than 200 buildings. The society has a very 19th century feel, and religion is an important part of most people's lives.

Len and Esau are cousins living on adjoining farms. They have heard rumors of a big city where technology has been preserved, and become obsessed with someday finding that city. When they become teenagers, they run away in search of that city.

There are themes of the conflicts between knowledge and progress vs. ignorance and the status quo. There is a good depiction of the many different religious sects and how they divide people.

There is not a lot of action in the book, and while it is a quick and easy ready, I found it a bit slow-moving. It also has a rather YA feel, not my favorite genre. So while I'm not sorry I read it, it is not one I would whole-heartedly recommend.

I thought the first half of this (Brackett's contribution) was quite good in a surreal and quasi-Byronic way, but the second half (a young Bradbury's contribution) felt like a typical golden age “adolescent fantasy in space” story.
