Some Bleak Books In My bleak books in my but this probably tops them all Heck it makes Cormac McCarthy seem positively smiley In Euphoria Helle gives us humanity stripped to its harshest most dire and brutal essence setting his characters loose in an environment that is even harsher than the their apocalyptic predicament Astounding This book contains ongoing themes of desolation sacrifice and primarily survival Although translated from German one main issue made me uestion continuing it does not include speech marks The timeline of Sorts Was Confusing To Follow was confusing to follow although I appreciated the descriptive elements appeared lacking in the sense of a conclusion at the end The ending was inevitable and if ou read one chapter of this book New Heights The Beginning After The End you would understand how it was going to end due to it s overall depressing and funnily enough end of the world narrative Ifou re a fan of post apocalyptic survival like The Road by Cormac McCarthy ou may enjoy this slim easy to read novel There is no explanation as to what has happened or why the group of men are the only survivors The story is like flashes of scenes or vignettes that describe the devastation and the gradual reduction of the group through accidents You get some flashbacks to previous life but it s generally depressing death porn with no time given to build connection or empathy to the characters This book was okay It is a novella written in short 2 or 3 page chapters which was nice as I enjoyed the pace It flashes between the past and the present The characters were not very well developed. Somewhere in the Austrian Alps a group of men in their thirties have gathered for a weekend away When they come down from their cabin the world has ended As the men wander through this destroyed human landscape Euphoria's nameless narrator reveals only small shocking details a crashed helicopter a boy sitting impas.
