Ashes, ashes Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Ashes, ashes

In the year 2052, the world depends entirely on electricity so when the electrical phenomenon unexpectedly disappears, a lot of problems happen. François Deschamps, an engineer specialized in farming, leaves Paris with ten companions and two horses with the hope to reach the south of France. Cholera, huge forest fires and looters will be the main enemies of the group before Deschamps is at last able to create a new rural society depending on people's work and not on mechanical energy.
