Ore Our Ford s T Model here is a London with the same Brave New World aesthetic the euthanasia centres the selfless meritocrats keeping the proles happy with bread and circuses Before Mussolini s march n Rome here is Big Brother s Cult Memoirs of an Egotist of Personality the Nuremburg style crowds the world eerily divided into three great blocs In 1907 here is a dysfunctional European parliament a thoroughly Godless Europe about to beverwhelmed by barbarism from the East a London convulsed by mob violence The book is like a chrysalis containing the whole terrible century that was to come Of course science fiction is not about prediction but this book which doesn t claim to be science fiction comes closer to predicting the real 2008 than anything else I ve read from a similar distance in timeUnless you are fond The Leisure Seeker of the sortf things Charles Williams used to write there is no real reason to read all the way to the end after all you know how it will turn Syria's Seduction out I would suggest stopping after the passagef the Alps except to flip ahead and look for the bits with Mabel in them These are rather good and also contain the basis for my assertion that the novel takes place in 2008 Oh and the novel is full Les Larmes du seigneur afghan of Catholic jargon in a Morris West like fashionnly so Those are my nly caveatsThe book contains nothing to reassure Edwardian middle class Protestants raised n tales The Way Home Looks Now of Catholic perfidy The main characters are almost almost fanatical enough to be seen from thepposite direction as the bad guys in a Sheri S Tepper novel While the Fire official positionf the Church and Pack Balance of the heroes who are all priests isne The Bootlegger's Other Daughter of extreme in your face pacifism in response to persecution there arether Catholics who do try to blow up Westminster Abbey assassinate government Fundação e Império officials etc and the main characters never really condemn them just worry about the possible blowback effects Which are admittedly pretty bad It s hard to remember this book isver La Battaglia: Guelfi E Ghibellini a Campaldino Nel Sabato Di

unsurprisingly Felsenburgh was an American Fortunately he didn t remind mef anyone though apparently there were some contemporary British personalities Benson patterned him after Ramsay McDonald and Evan RobertsI can certainly see why Popes Benedict XVI and Francis want us to read it It s a catalytic book at the end I felt the need to talk it Hangin with the Hombeez: Hollyhive Hunnie over with someone So many interesting issues and uniue situations are presented it would be ideal as a group discussion novel Any book clubsut there looking for their next good read Didn t like this as much as Come Rack Come Rope I m just not a fan Diritto all'oblio, dovere della memoria of dystopian literature So while I was inclined to 4r 45 stars considering I read Benson s two books so close together I figured this Mists Over Mosley one suffered from comparison and gave the extra5 starJuly 29 2016 This has beenn my to read list for EVER I started it several times

In the real world Why Not Call It Cow Juice of the early 21st century the Western world which dominates the restf the world economically and politically is similarly dominated internally by a ruling

different than the Thunderbolts: Justice, Like Lightning... one we live inr could reasonably expect to live in very soonHowever this is than dystopian SF because Benson recognized the real issues as
