Thank you to the author Eric James-Olson for a free copy in return for an honest review!

This book was... strange. Not a bad strange though. Just a... different strange. Think a variation of Brave New World.

So I didn't know this was part of a series when I first started reading it. So while I was reading it, I was thinking "where's the world-building?!" because there was pretty much nada in the whole book (there was... 2 chapters I believe). Buuuuut, now that I know that, I think I can reasonably assume there is some world-building in the other 2 books.

Back to the book. I really loved Lawrence and Maria's relationship in comparison with the other people. Like in Brave New World, "everyone belongs to everyone else" therefore there are no true marriages. But Lawrence and Maria were as good as married. They were totally committed to each other. Basically the entire book was centered around Lawrence and Maria finding each other. Somewhat. Which brings me to my next point.

The biggest reason I rated this 3.5 stars is because there didn't seem to be a main plot. There were plenty of co and sub plots but there wasn't a dominant one. Now some people may like this kind of thing. Me? I find it hard to focus on the book then and it isn't as intense for me. So there's that.

The other reason is the flow was kind of... I don't know... off? There was a bunch of jumping backward and forward in time which sometimes made sense and sometimes didn't. The one time change I enjoyed was when it would switch back to the lecture hall scene after or before an important scene in the 'present'. This gave a lot of meaning to the book and made a lot of things about their society and just about the book's message clearer.

Having read ‘Farmers and Cannibals, and also ‘But the Angels Never Came’ I had a good background on the story ‘Just after The Fall.’ This particular story concentrates on the aftermath of the farm colony’s destruction and the relationship between Lawrence and Maria. As always, it is well written and all together a good read. I do recommend you read the other books I have mentioned first, because although each book can be read as a stand-alone, it makes sense to me to have the full picture.

I don't often give 5 stars, but this was a very good read. I was totally there and could imagine each scene with ease. The writing was vivid and the plot was clever. It was a page turner and it made me think in new ways. The whole story stitched together beautifully and even though it was part of a series (and I hadn't read the previous books), I didn't feel lost with the story. I'd recommend it for a read, especially if you are into Sci Fi, religion or politics.

I liked the characters of Maria and Lawrence in 'Farmers and Cannibals' so I was truly happy when I learned this one is about them. It was a nice story of their love and it also tied nicely with the other stories in this series. It's always good to know what Abraham is up to :).

Just After the Fall is the third Novel by James-Olson. I enjoyed the first two, so I snagged this off Amazon the other day and finished it in short order.
This one picks up just after the farm is destroyed in Farmers and Cannibals. The action of the story opens up with Lawrence, who was outside the farm when it was destroyed. He assumes his girlfriend Maria is dead and is in despair. The rest of the story follows his search for her.
Structurally, this is the most complex of James-Olson's novels so far. The action travels forward and backward in time, not just in the lives of the protagonists, but far into the future as well. The good news is that the time shifts are easy to keep track of. The chapter titles and a little bit of careful reading are all it takes to keep up with it.
The way he laid out the chapters was neat. Except for the middle chapter, the first chapter, and the final chapter, all of the chapters in the book are either paired, or in four parts (I only noticed this because I checked out the table of contents and thought that it was weird how each chapter had a part 1, 2, etc.). The order of the chapters in the second half, perfectly mirrors those in the first half. I know it's dweeby, but I thought this was cool.
Similar to But the Angels Never Came, James-Olson explores the concept of storytelling and how stories are used to form morality. One of the sections follows a futuristic religious leader who uses the story as a sermon. In another section, a futuristic history professor uses the story as the subject of a lecture. And then of course there is Abraham. And just like in the other two novels, he uses stories to get what he wants.
The majority of the novel is told through a limited omniscient narrator who follows Lawrence.

What a great read. I have been following the story from the beginning and “Just after the fall” is a great addition to the series. It has everything you could ask for from a novel to include suspense, action, romance, adventure, and excitement. What I really appreciate is the connection that you feel with the main character Lawrence. You really feel all the emotions that he is going through and find yourself actively hoping that he finds some sort of peace, even though you don’t know how the story is going to end.

Overall, I would defiantly recommend this book to others. It is not very long and can be read in a few hours. I read it on a 4 hour plane ride, which was great because it made the ride go by fast. The book has lots of twist and turns which keep you on the edge of your seat. I hope the series isn’t over just yet. Do yourself a favor and read the book!!
