Immobility | [Brian Evenson]

Immobility

You open your eyes for what you know is not the first time and you remember nothing. You find out that a catastrophic event known as the Kollaps has destroyed life as we know it. Something crucial has been stolen - but under no circumstances can you know what or why. You’ve got to get it back or something bad is going to happen. And you’ve got to get it back fast, so they can freeze you again before your own time runs out. Paralyzed from the waist down, you’re being carried around on the backs of two men who don’t seem anything like you at all.

Publisher's Summary

You open your eyes for what you know is not the first time and you remember nothing. You find out that a catastrophic event known as the Kollaps has destroyed life as we know it. Someone claiming to be your friend tells you that you’re needed. Something crucial has been stolen - but under no circumstances can you know what or why. You’ve got to get it back or something bad is going to happen. And you’ve got to get it back fast, so they can freeze you again before your own time runs out. Paralyzed from the waist down, you’re being carried around on the backs of two men who don’t seem anything like you at all. Who inject you regularly and tell you it’s for your own good…to stop the disease, or else they must cut directly into your spine. Welcome to the life of Josef Horkai….

    "CATASTROPHIC !"

    Ar first I took this book to be another post-apocalyptic yarn and that I preferred 'The Road'. Then there evolved a philosophic perspective, religion, free will, morality and then some twists and turns took the book in a new direction. I found myself caring for characters that shouldn't warrant too much attention. The Qs were so innocent. This novel is an interesting scifi or is it horror scifi?

    "Existential Post Apocalyptic Tale"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a terrific post-apocalyptic tale that can be summed up as 12 Monkeys meets The Road. An amnesiac superhuman survivor is used by the survivors of a nuclear war to obtain something stolen from them -- lots of Kafkaesque type scenes with multiple existential tangents -- with a great twist at the end. Perfect for that 8 hour car ride.

    "Interesting story."
    Any additional comments?

    Wish it was longer for story details, but at the same time it stands well on its own. Going to test out more of the writers work.
