I have to say that Brian Evenson is an author to look forward to.
This book starts with a character Horkai being awakened from storage after a long time to procure a storage tank needed by "the community" or "the hive" as they call it. But the problem is he is being paralyzed from the waist down and coudn't remember what had led him to that situation and therefore he is confused and sometimes questions his own judgement. To accompany him are two "mules"(they may be human) qatik and qanik. i ended up developing a sympathy towards them at the end and even like them most. Somewhere in between the book poses the question that "is it better for the humanity to die out ?" But well that is left for the readers to decide
i would recommend this book to every reader because this book is a treat which one should not miss and if you are a post-apocalyptic fan then what could be better than that !
oh Brian Evenson what have you produced , i need to consume more book of yours !!
