He wonders whether, having murdered someone, they can still be considered the good guys. Can it happen to any of us? Query: How does the never to be differ from what never was? Their arrival at the coast is anti-climactic.

The boy cries for the man, showing his kind heart and his compassionate nature in a world where very little humanity exists. They move south through nuclear grey winter, "like the onset of some cold glaucoma dimming away the world", sleeping badly beneath filthy tarpaulin, setting hidden campfires, exploring ruined houses, scavenging shrivelled apples. Those who seek the "never to be" entertain deluded hopes, the falseness of utopia, while those who yearn for "what never was" similarly maintain meaningless illusions; both harm one's capacity to focus upon the present, and in this aspect, they do not differ. Unable to build homes there, the Serbs of the area founded a new settlement in on the left bank of the Danube. Throughout the novel there are moments like this one at the waterfall, scenes that prove the bond between fathers and sons still exist in this new world.

Send suggestions for more bleak books to media abebooks. What they discover is a bunker, full of supplies and canned food, cots to sleep on, water, and a chemical toilet. It is a brief sanctuary from the world above. Deranged chanting became the music of the new age. The man and boy decide to leave their camp on the beach, and they pare down their food stores so that the cart is more manageable. They are imprisoned there to be used as food by four men and two women who are cannibals.
