The scene take place in world which is destroyed. Big fires destroyed cities and campaigns. The nature has disappeared. All humans live alone, they are scared about other. The humans choose to be violent and egoistische. Two characters (a boy and his father) walk along a road to go to the Sud. The characters walk in a hostile and post-apocalyptic world. They feel menaced by other. They don’t have a lot of food and they drink water. They eat when they find food.The son is a child, he believes in the villains and in kind persons. The father is sick, so in last part of the novel he died. His son is obliged to live alone but a man find him. In this meeting he can see the start of new humanity. When they arrive to the sea they are disappointed beaucause the sea is grey and polluted.
This story speak about the love between a son and his father .They desire to immortalize the memory and the culture in a world of darkness. I have liking this novels because I like science-fiction novels. It’s interested to see the human’s comportement after a catastrophe. It is a metaphoric novel, the story talk about an impossible quest, of the lost paradise, the humanity that destroys itself. This story represent the Human, we don’t know that we are going to make and to be in future.
