I really didn't like this book...It's been a while, but I remember disliking the writing, not buying into the premise. ( )

I read this book years ago and simply could not find it again. When I say that this book was good, I mean that the ideas presented in the book stuck with me for some time. I know that if I reread it today that I may not take the ending as well as I once did. The story seems to be a carrier for a moral metaphor that I once agreed with, but today would make a lot of caveats to. ( )

Une intense plongée dans la nature, la profonde forêt, alors que tout s'est effondré autour et que deux soeurs, Neil et Eva, 17 et 18 ans, se retrouvent seules au monde, orphelines, tentant de s'en sortir dans cette maison familiale où elles ont grandi. Elles doivent réapprendre à vivre, sans électricité, ni téléphone, ni essence. Et se porter l'une l'autre, se soutenir, s'aimer. Roman très fort, même si le thème lui-même n'est pas nouveau. ( )

Dreamlike in the same way and with similar themes as [b:Housekeeping|11741|Housekeeping|Marilynne Robinson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327882949s/11741.jpg|1056302], though that's a hard novel to stack up against. It's post-apocalyptic but not in a zombies-or-aliens kind of way; instead, a series of sharp blows is all it takes to knock down the elaborate structures of civility we've built for ourselves. But the apocalypse is not the point--this could just as easily have been a period piece about two city slickers moving out to the frontier. The apocalypse is just the painted backdrop to force them to figure out how to take care of themselves without the vast global supply chain.

I'm not entirely sure any of the characters develop in directions I'd want to follow. There's a review that complains that Nell, the narrator, is basically the giver in a codependent relationship with her sister. I can see that. But sometimes a book can be about the ways a character doesn't grow. And arguably it's Eva that grows as changes: She drops her obsession with ballet, with a past she can never reclaim. She learns to share herself with her sister. She strides recklessly forward into the future, into the unfamiliar, knowing that there is risk in leaving behind the empty eggshell of what their parents left for them but leaving anyway. Naturally having a sister-husband helps out with that.

One piece of writing really jumped out at me, from one of Nell's dreams of the black bear haunting their house:

Again the bear bends over me. But, instead of licking me, it opens its jaws over my face, so wide that my whole head is inside its mouth and I am looking down the dark tunnel of its throat. I feel its teeth meet through my neck, and I know it has bitten off my head. But when it lifts its mouth from my empty shoulders, I can see the world as well as ever--in fact, things have a lucidity I had never before imagined, and I think, What an effort it was to have to lug my head around with me for so long.

Really interesting, though I could have done without the incest. I like the quiet aspect--reminded me of the T.S. Eliot quote, "This is the way the world ends/Not with a bang but a whimper." ( )

It's strange, writing these first words, like leaning down into the musty stillness of a well and seeing my face peer up from the water- so small and from such an unfamiliar angle I'm startled to realize the reflection is my own.

"People have been around for at least 100,000 years. And how long have we had electricity?"
"Well, Edison invented the incadescent lamp in 1879." "See? All this," and she swung her arm to encircle the rooms of the only house I'd ever know, "was only a fugue state." She pointed to the blackness framed by the open door. "Our real lives are out there."
It seems as if we are all appetite, as if a human being is simply a bundle of needs to drain the world.
I could not save all the stories, could not hope to preserve all the information - that was too vast, too disparate, perhaps even too dangerous. But I could take the encyclopedia's index, could try to keep that master list of all that had once been made or told or understood. Perhaps we could create new stories; perhaps we could discover a new knowledge that would sustain us. In the meantime, I would take the Index for memory's sake, so I could remember the map of all we'd had to leave behind.
It seemed the forest had everything we needed. Every mushroom or flower or fern or stone was a gift. Every noise was an adventure to be investigated. Frequently we saw deer or rabbits or heard the call of wild turkeys. Occasionally we glimpsed a grey fox or a skunk.
Slowly I'm beginning to untangle the forest, to attach names to the plants that fill it.... "Native Plants" says the maples in these woods will produce sugar sap, that coltsfoot leaves can give us salt, that the Indians who once lived here used Spanish moss for diapers, California poppy as a painkiller, and moulded acorn metal as an antibiotic. There are plants to stop fever, plants to relieve colds, plants to soothe rashes and menstrual cramps. There are teas.... And there are acorns. "Native Plants" says, "Worldwide and throughout history, acorns have served as a staple part of the diet of many peoples".
