Pe on the backs of two men in hazard suits who don't seem anything like you at all heading toward something you don't understand that may well end up being the death of youWelcome to the life of Josef HorkaiCritically acclaimed and O Henry prize–winning author Brian Evenson turns his literary eye to a post–apocalyptic earth in this dazzling science fiction novel 45 We're a curse a blight said Rykte First we gave everything names and then we invented hatred And then we made the mistake of domesticating animals almost as big a mistake as that of discovering fire It's only one step from there to slavery and once you think of humans as animals we become a disposable commodity war a commonplace Add in a dominant religion that preaches end of the world and holy books that have been used to justify atrocity after atrocity and you're only a step away from annihilation It's better not to let society develop at all to leave each person on their own alone shivering and afraid in the darkHorkai looked at him a long time You really think humanity should die out?Objectively yes said Rykte I'm not generally a sci fi fan but when I come across one that seems to have a message a philosophical way about it I tend to jump in optimistically and hang on for the ride At the heart of Evenson's work is what purpose do we have in this world? Is it absurd or meaningless what we do or exist for? Is there a puppet master brandishing its tightened strings upon your harness and moving your hands for you? Restricting you to only move when heshe moves? Or do you have the ability to decide for yourself without outside influence? Do we ruin each other in the same way we ruin ourselves? Immobility is a fast read but also an intelligent enjoyable one PS Thanks to Brian Dice for posting about Evenson otherwise I most likely wouldn't have known about him

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
