"Und was once wirklich toll warfare: Dieser Roman hat mich sofort ganz, ganz stark in seinen Bann gezogen und das passiert mir nicht oft, dass ich mich gegen ein Buch praktisch nicht „wehren“ kann. Die Sogwirkung ist enorm, eine echte Spannung, die vorantreibt. Mich haben der Tiefgang der Gedanken und die sehr gründliche Zeichnung der Figuren überrascht; nicht, weil ich beides Lagerkvist nicht zugetraut hätte, sondern weil ich mir vom Thema her das Buch technischer vorgestellt hätte, additionally dass es mehr um die technischen Hintergründe für das Kollabieren aller Systeme gehen würde und weniger um das, used to be das aus den Menschen macht, aus ihrem Leben, das eigentlich zum Vegetieren wird. Lagerkvist hat das sehr intestine geschrieben, guy friert und hungert mit seinen Protagonisten und guy schaudert bei den Schilderungen, used to be aus der Menschheit wird, wenn alles wegbricht, used to be Zivilisation ausmacht. Lagerkvists Bild ist da ja ausgesprochen düster und pessimistisch, aber nicht übertrieben, guy nimmt es ihm ab, jedenfalls ging es mir so. Das conflict es überhaupt, was once mich an dem Buch sehr faszinierte: Es ging mir so sehr unter die Haut." (Charlotte hyperlink, Bestsellerautorin)
