A paralyzing journey to survive
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
A fascinating post apocalyptic journey for human survival. Josef Horkai is brought back to consciousness and finds he is unable to walk. Stuck in a foreign environment with strangers with an odd culture doesn't recognize he is immediately sent on a mission to recover an artifact from the wasteland. Twists and turns kept coming as the plot unraveled at a fast pace. Crisp dialogue, short sharp descriptions of a world long dead keeps the plot moving. Readers looking for something different and scary will love this gripping sci-fi thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed Immobility and I look forward to more novels by this author.

Existential Post Apocalyptic Tale
Any additional comments?
This is a terrific post-apocalyptic tale that can be summed up as 12 Monkeys meets The Road. An amnesiac superhuman survivor is used by the survivors of a nuclear war to obtain something stolen from them -- lots of Kafkaesque type scenes with multiple existential tangents -- with a great twist at the end. Perfect for that 8 hour car ride.
