It is a while since I ready a dystopia and I've had this a while in the pile beside the bed I have read a few of this author's novels and was looking forward to it Anna is a young girl on the cusp of womanhood she lives in an idyllic setting in the Italian countryside She is bringing up her brother alone scavenging for food and desperate to keep him safe which means she needs to survive until he is old enough to manage There are no grown ups they have all been killed by a virus which has swept the world leaving only the children and once they reach puberty they too die Anna is resourceful and having taken care of her dying mother is older than her years she has created a shrine to her mum in the bedroom Her mother was careful to leave clear instructions in a book which is Anna's precious possession there are instructions on how to deal with the problems she is likely to face when coping by herself I was completely hooked on this book in the beginning I loved Anna and her brother Astor I loved the dog which tries to kill Anna but recognises her kindness and becomes her protector I do love a dog in a story As the story goes on it does lose a little bit of momentum and becomes fantastic but the characters of the kids win out and are so beautifully done Niccolo Ammaniti writes books which often include isolated children and this is no exception They are isolated by circumstances and because they don't trust the rest of the remaining children to protect themI liked this book a lot and liked the concept I became very involved and invested in Anna's survival and although it wasn't perfect it was a really enjoyable read

The disease is called ‘la Rossa’ the red one due to the blotches that appear on the skin There's no cure and a horrible death is the inevitable outcome once it strikes And it’s been rampant sweeping through Europe and killing everyone in its wake Everyone that is except for pre pubescent children That’s the good news That's the only good news Once the child reaches puberty the dormant virus strikes and the same grisly fate awaits The year is 2020 Anna is thirteen and lives in Sicily with her younger brother Her parents are dead – all adults are dead Her mother had the forethought to write down some instructions before the pandemic reached her door what to do with her body once she'd passed and importantly some very practical schooling on what to do next Her most fervent command being to ensure Anna stayed with her brother and found a way of getting to the mainland – maybe just maybe there'd be some adults left alive due to a cure having been found In time Anna and her brother set out on their journey Along the way they meet other children all of them hungry and many of them unfriendly and even violent It's a tough world out there Many they come across have theories regarding how to cure the disease each weirder and seemingly less likely than the last Can they find a way to comply with their mother’s bidding and if so will it bear fruit Who knows but Anna is determined to give it a goAmanniti has written before about the plight of children in Me and You and I’m not Scared for instance he showed how adept he is adept at tapping into the psyche the young and vulnerable He pulls it off again here – very well indeed in fact There's than a touch of The Road about this book although grim as it is at times it's not uite in the same league as McCarthy’s classic piece There's also something of Lord of the Flies about it too in the way we witness what a world might be like if it were to be run purely by children many of whom have gone ferrel It thought it compelling thought provoking sad and yet also strangely uplifting I liked it a lot and I hope many other readers take a close look at this book and also other output from this intriguingly gifted writer My thanks to Canongate books and NetGalley for supplying a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
