I really enjoyed this book as it was about war. Living the life of a teenager trying to save himself from death brought a tear or two to my eyes. The plot was great but in the ending, I have no idea if they boy lived or died.

There were many mistakes in the editing of this book. I loved the story line, very vivid. However, the choppiness of the story line, read like a documentary. The book was over before i even began to enjoy it.

This book came to me as a Good Reads giveaway.

Author Phil Mc Paul calls "Christiania" a Humanalypse book.

Try saying “humanalypse” quickly three times!

As such, I suppose, this short novel explores the beginning of the end of mankind. Early in the story, doom saying, drunken, mad-prophet and erstwhile journalist Simon declares, “The wickedness of the world, the evil, is nearing its completion. Mankind has gone too far.”

Jesper, the story’s protagonist, is, almost literally, blown into the streets

Christiania di Phil Mac Paul è apparentemente una storia semplice da leggere e intendere, benché sia un film che si svolge con immagini terribili. Io l’ho letto in modo superficiale e l’ho gustato tutto, come un bagno nell’acqua termale che puzza di zolfo.
Dopo qualche giorno le ultime battute mi risuonavano ancora in testa, e le immagini che mi vorticavano in mente, erano come le tessere di un puzzle che cercavano una composizione diversa. Ho riaperto Christiania e l’ho affrontato piano, come un

Christiania by Phil Mac Paul is seemingly a story you can read and understand easily, although it is like a film that depicts terrible images. I read it in a superficial way, and I've enjoyed it all, like a warm bath that smells like sulfur.
After a few days, the last sentences were still ringing in my head, and the images that swirled in my mind were like the pieces of a puzzle trying to create a different composition. I reopened Christiania and approached it slowly, with the appropriate precaut

Il libro é ambientato nell'universo di Umanalisse, il cui libro principale dovrebbe uscire intorno alla fine di Novembre.
Questa storia é molto forte, intensa, almeno per me. La sofferenza del protagonista la vivo completamente, perché le immagini proposte, anche se tutt'altro che consuete, non lasciano certo indifferenti.
Il libro é costruito come una specie di Odissea, si svolge nell'arco di una sola giornata e non ci sono attimi di respiro. L'abbondanza di simboli e di significati non appesa

The book is part of the Humanalypse project. It is the first of the series, and I think the new one will be out at the end of November (should be the core novel, a big book that show all the world of Humanalypse).
This story is painful and dark. You follow the leading character in a Odissey-like day. He is just a boy, a teen that is in the wrong place in the wrong time.
The author make readers feels any single thought, any big or short pain he receive during his journey, as the thrill on each s

RECEIVED BOOK FREE THROUGH GOODREADS FIRST READS.

Never have I given only one star to a book. I just didn't get this read. I suspect it's about mans inhumanity to man, but...

I found it to be very violent and an offence to my sensibilities. Is that what the purpose was??

I actually skimmed the last pages and found the only redeeming part...mother and son are reunited.
