And I found myself agreeing with all of the characters good or bad because when I mulled over the story in my head I concluded that each character did his best under such trying circumstances and I would have done exactly the same or less You can’t say that about many books can you?

ImmobilityWhen you open your eyes things already seem to be happening without you You don't know who you are and you don't remember where you've been You know the world has changed that a catastrophe has destroyed what existed before but you can't remember exactly what did exist before And you're paralyzed from the waist down apparently but you don't remember that eitherA man I spotted this book via goodreads I really like the recommendations they do here on the basis of what you're reading I think I was reading 'Sleepless' when this book was recommended A book which will probably never be in the bookstores in Europe so got it online being curious by the story outline I got here A weird apocalyptic story cool out of the box story too How can a writer make something like this upyou wonder It's different from a lot of other books in the same genre of course the desolation of the world and the landscape is there Josef Horkai wakes up in a place amidst a group of people keeping themselves surviving 'under the ground' because the outside world can not be survived when going outside after the world has gone down They call it a 'hive' and their leader is Rasmus Josef's legs don't work they say they kept him in 'storage' for years deepfreeze apparently and now woke him up because they need his help for an assignment In itself that is weird for someone who can't walk Carried by two sort of 'twin' mules two weird guys called uatik and uanik wearing protective suits he goes outside on a mission while Josef Horkai is unaffected he seems 'unhuman' in a way His wounds heal and while the mules despite their protective suits get worse and worse and expect not to survive the assignment Josef survives in the outside world without any protective clothing Out on the assignment to get something 'that was stolen' from the hive the story spirals to situations where you are wondering whether it is reality or a dream he is having to a weird end Can not say would be spoiling Great read Pretty weird but great
