    1 thought on “The High-Tech Knight

    1. First of all, don't take it too seriously. I don’t believe that you grade every work on the same scale, you grade them based on what they were intended to be. This book wasn’t written to be compared to Stephen King or Shakespeare (depending on which end of the scale you tend to fall to) – it was written to be enjoyed. I have a feeling that if Leo were alive he’d tell you he had a ball writing this series, and leave it at that. The basic premise is the same as the first book. Conrad is st [...]

    2. I love books that take a character and move him out of his time and place such as A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, or The Chronicles of Narnia. This is one of my favorites. I love the world building. I could do without all the sex with nubile young women, but I'm not offended by it.In this one Conrad has to fight a duel with a knight champion, and get his tech base together because the mongols are coming

    3. It's always interesting to attempt to categorize books for the reviews, but in cases like this one it's also helpful for the review. On the surface, there are a few tags/shelves I could apply (time travel, historical fiction) that are, on further reflection, not really significant to the story. Yes, Conrad Schwarz travels back in time, but that was in the first book and is really more of a setting detail at this point (1). Yes, it is set in 12th century Poland, but that's a setting rather than [...]

    4. The second book in the series is just as entertaining as the first. I am very curious to find out what will happen to Conrad in the next book. I love books that draw you in and you can just enjoy as entertainment.

    5. This book is a solid sequel. That is to say, it has more of the same, with enough change to keep some sense of tension. The book starts off (in a sharp change of pace) from the perspective of a local Polish knight, instead of Conrad Stargard. At the same time as you start to see this "down-timer" perspective, you also get to start to see what sort of society Conrad is trying to engineer - and even if the down-timers tend to idolize Conrad, his limitations become more visible.There is more Connec [...]

    6. I registered a book at BookCrossing!BookCrossing/journal/12669065So far, I am finding this series enjoyable. I started out reading this completely out of order with The Prequel first and then the third book. I hope Teddy has more of this series in the one box I have left of his books.If not, I will have to buy more with my own money. (gasp)

    7. This author follows a very set pattern, which is that there's one smart dude in the world, and he wanders around inventing new technologies and gradually becoming rich and powerful. This particular series is about an engineer who time-traveled into the past and is busily carving out his own little empire. Well, I enjoyed it.

    8. Started off kind of slow but quickly picked back up. Its absurdly unbelievable (not counting the time travel of course) but very enjoyable. I'll compare this to playing Age of the Empires where you completely control society and get to trigger rapid technological advances. Excited to start #3.

    9. Very inventive. What can a modern person do in the middle ages with a little know how and some working knowledge of history.

    10. The author is a Mary Sue who has someting ideas on how swords and women work, but it is an entertaining alt history read, if a bit fluffy.

    11. Incredibly good series. The baisc man-out-of-time story line but very involved. Excellent characters and story. Highly recommended.

    12. Excessively juvenile but since I was in Jr high the first time I read it, that was part of the appeal. It's a frivolous scifi time travel novel and a fun mindless read.

    13. A bit more preachy than the first one, and fairly bad attitudes too. Reasonably entertaining plot though.
