'One of Italy's brightest literary stars' Observer It is some years since a virus killed all the adults. Now Sicily lies in ruins while the disease lies in wait, poised to claim the children as they reach adolescence. Brave, stubborn thirteen-year-old Anna looks after her brother Astor in the cottage where their mother's skeleton rests, lovingly decorated, in a locked bedroom. She tells him fearsome stories about monsters, hoping to keep him safe at home while she forages among the real hazards. Wild dogs. Gangs of savage, blue-painted kids. But then Astor starts to question Anna's version of the world, just as the blue kids are turning their attention to the cottage-and suddenly, everything will change. Niccolò Ammaniti was born in Rome in 1966. He has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared, which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. 'As well as conjuring up this excellent characterisation, Ammaniti's prose has a strange, deadpan tenderness that I loved. There is always a sense of hope in the hopelessness. This is a sickeningly wonderful novel, and a perfect example of literary dystopian fiction.' Readings 'With William Golding's Lord of the Flies and Cormac McCarthy's The Road as its touchstones, this dystopian novel pays homage to resilience and survival against the odds in a climate of violence and superstition. It's also a coming-of-age story about a harsh transition to adulthood, with the added stinger that death waits in the wings.' Qantas Magazine 'A fearsomely gifted writer.' Independent 'Ammaniti's writing is sharp, lean and pacy.' Herald Sun 'Ammaniti excels...in capturing the thought processes and fears and desires of children... once you start reading him, you can't put him down.'

Un'altro libro quasi-profetico, visto che è pure ambientato nel 2020 (ironia della sorte la produzione della serie TV è stata bloccata proprio dalla pandemia vera).

Più che uno romanzo di fantascienza/distopico vero e proprio, è inteso come una metafora della crescita/romanzo di formazione, e alla fine mi è sembrato che la cosa fosse un po' la scusa per tirarsene fuori facile con un finale aperto, perché "L'importante non è guarire, ma stare insieme".....

Niccolò Ammaniti is one of those writers who enjoy success with the reading public and general (if not unanimous) critical acclaim. One of the reasons for this must surely be that he brings a literary sensibility to popular genres, be it novels with a Mafia/"low-life" theme ( such as [b:Io non ho paura|151633|Io non ho paura|Niccolò Ammaniti|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1345927249l/151633._SY75_.jpg|1185887] and the Strega-winner [b:Come Dio comanda|1304612|Come Dio comanda|Niccolò Ammaniti|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1295369878l/1304612._SY75_.jpg|6527293]) or bittersweet coming-of-age stories such as [b:Io e te|9666790|Io e te|Niccolò Ammaniti|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1295688303l/9666790._SY75_.jpg|14549397]. Ammaniti's engagement with pop culture and his ability to read and reflect the "signs of the times" is confirmed by the fact that his books and stories have been made into movies by directors such as Salvatores and Bertolucci, and the title of [b:Ti prendo e ti porto via|1304611|Ti prendo e ti porto via|Niccolò Ammaniti|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1312482672l/1304611._SX50_.jpg|421377] was appropriated by cult Italian rocker Vasco Rossi for his hit single of the same name (belted out in Blasco's trademark half-spoken/shouted style).

In Anna, Ammaniti turns his sights onto the YA market and the dystopian/post-apocalyptic genre which seems to take up quite a chunk of new adult readership. He imagines a Sicily ravaged by a mysterious virus which wipes out adults, leaving only children as survivors. Until they reach puberty, because then the symptoms of the illness appear and they die as well. Further disasters (including uncontrolled fires and explosions) wreak havoc and break down all electronic means of communication. Unsure of the situation in the rest of the world (where, allegedly, a cure might have been found), and with adulthood fast approaching, the protagonist Anna sets out on a journey seeking survival for her and her younger brother Astor.

If I have a reservation about Ammaniti's latest novel, it is that it does not bring anything particularly new to the genre. We've come across "apocalypse by virus" before, not least in Shelley's proto-science-fiction novel [b:The Last Man|966835|The Last Man|Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1392984325l/966835._SY75_.jpg|835097]. There are also obvious parallels with [b:The Road|6288|The Road|Cormac McCarthy|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1600241424l/6288._SY75_.jpg|3355573] whilst the nature of the virus, dubbed "La Rossa", could be a tribute to Poe's Masque of the Red Death. As for children returning to a primitive, violent, cruel state, one could hardly better [b:Lord of the Flies|7624|Lord of the Flies|William Golding|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1327869409l/7624._SY75_.jpg|2766512].

That said, nothing by Ammaniti should be written off. And Anna is, as most of his novels, engaging and, quite often, page-turning. The protagonist is an endearing character - strong and yet sensitive - bravely coming to terms with an oncoming adolescence which, for her, will mean almost certain death. This might not be a groundbreaking novel then, but certainly a well-crafted and gripping one, and several notches above the average YA fare.

I generally prefer to read Italian novels in the original, but I really enjoyed the idiomatic, fluent translation by Jonathan Hunt for Canongate Books. ( )

Un romanzo che ,come Ti prendo e ti porto via ... ti prende e ti porta via. In un futuro distopico popolato solo da ragazzini, Anna lotta per la sopravvivenza e per quella del suo fratellino guidata da un quaderno delle istruzioni scritto dalla madre prima di soccombere al virus letale che sta sterminando la popolazione adulta. Lettura coinvolgente, torrentizia, estraniante. ( )

"Nuvole o pioggia, freddo o caldo il buio, prima o poi, perdeva la sua quotidiana battaglia con la luce." Zitat Seite 120 (Wolken oder Regen, Kälte oder Wärme, die Dunkelheit verlor früher oder später ihren täglichen Kampf mit dem Licht)

Inhalt:
Im Jahr 2016 tritt ein Virus auf, das alle Erwachsenen tötet und fûr das es kein Gegenmittel zu geben scheint. Nur Kinder sind immun, bis sie etwa vierzehn Jahre alt sind. So hat 2020 auch in Sizilien die Natur begonnen, die Dörfer und Städte zurück zu gewinnen. Anna war 9 Jahre alt, als ihre Eltern starben, ihr Bruder Astor 4. Jetzt ist sie 13 Jahre alt und weiß, dass sie aufbrechen und ihren Bruder auf das Festland bringen muss, wo vielleicht Erwachsene überlebt und ein Gegenmittel gefunden haben. Doch zuerst muss sie ihren Bruder finden, denn er ist plötzlich verschwunden..

Genre und Thema:
In diesem postapokalyptischen Abenteuerroman geht es um das Überleben in einer urzeitlichen Umgebung, wo auch Lebensmittel knapp sind. Kinder, die sich in neuen Strukturen zusammengeschlossen haben, ohne Erwachsene. Der Autor überlegt in seinem Roman das Verhalten seiner Protagonisten, wie es sein könnte. Es geht um Mut, Vertrauen und auch Liebe.

Charaktere:
Während der kleine Astor misstrauisch und meistens unvernünftig auf die neue Situation reagiert, ist die Hauptprotagonistin Anna eine Kämpferin, sie ist clever und einfallsreich und gibt nicht auf. Vom "Heft der Wichtigen Dinge", wo ihre Mutter für sie Anleitungen für alle nur möglichen Situationen aufgeschrieben hat, holt Anna sich die notwendigen Ratschläge, auch wenn sie erkennen muss, dass vieles davon nicht mehr stimmt. Dennoch bleibt Anna ein positiv denkendes Mädchen und als Leser schließt man sie rasch ins Herz. Ein weiterer wichtiger Protagonist ist sicher der Maremmen-Schäferhund Coccolone. Auch er gibt nie auf und hat, wie Anna sagt, sieben Leben wie eine Katze.

Handlung und Sprache:
Der Autor erzählt die Geschichte chronologisch, mit einigen Rückblenden. Die Handlung gewinnt nach einem ruhigen Einstieg, als er das Leben der beiden Kinder in ihrem Haus, der Maulbeerfarm, schildert, rasch an Spannung und bleibt bis zum Ende packend. Die Sprache ist im Gegensatz zum Thema poetisch, ein Höhepunkt ist für mich die rückblickende Schilderung, wie das Licht langsam ausging. Beeindruckend realistisch auch die Beschreibung der bekannten Orte, wie sie nach vier Jahren ohne Technik und Erhaltung aussehen könnten.

Fazit:
Ein bedrückendes Endzeit-Szenario, sehr spannend, sprachlich großartig umgesetzt. Besonders beeindruckt hat mich die positive Grundstimmung, die in dieser postapokalyptischen Geschichte um ein mutiges Mädchen immer mitschwingt. Ein Roman, der noch lange in den Gedanken bleibt.

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he.

Een vlinder vloog op uit een johannesbroodboom, zwevend tegen de wind in. Een windvlaag trok hem naar de jongen en het meisje. Hij raakte de haren van Anna en werd naar Astor geduwd, die zijn hand uitstak, heel even rustte hij op de handpalm van het jongetje en hervatte toen zijn wankele vlucht. Vervolgens kwam er nog een vlinder, en nog een, totdat ze werden omhuld door honderden vleugels die als een geel-zwarte sneeuwbui boven de weg dansten.
