A frozen pursuit towards something you just shouldn't reach...
Jim must stay alive. Jim must keep his daughter Flora alive. Jim must catch up with 'the other father' and his boy. Jim must survive.
But what is survival? Is it running towards something? Or is it running away from something?
"…I all but screamed at my baby girl, the most beautiful treasured thing in what passed for my life. Infuriated, I ripped the goggles off; their weight had been bowing my scarecrow neck. The world flipped too quick from narrow safe letterbox to a cold sea of light. A deluge …"
The most unreliable of narrators takes us across the frozen wasteland that is our world. His young daughter in tow. No other survivors around. Except the 'other father' and his son...
Driven to desperate measures and living on the very edge of existence and sanity, what are we really reading here? What is really happening? Who are these people?
The ending was the icing on the cake (had to say it!) and I thought was a great wrap up to the tale.

The author has toiled over every aspect of the story to produce something that is enduring. This is one of the longest reviews I have ever written, and it is for many reasons.

Have been haunted by this one ever since I finished. I found myself equally sympathetic and disgusted by Jim and his Sisyphean task of keeping his young ward alive, knowing full well what kind of future he was delivering her to. A man with an ugly past and an increasingly corrupted future doggedly trying to keep one light on at the end of the world. Just beautiful.
