Krabbe's masterpiece - an unflinching examination of the damage human beings do to each other both by chance and design, a meditation on mortality and the one chance that is our lives, and a terrible portrayal of the human character in the twentieth century, free of both morality and God. An amazing, unforgettable book, and one of the best uses of an omniscient narrator there is. The book's obscurity seems to stand in inverse proportion to its power: start reading it and I guarantee you'll do nothing else until you reach the book's quietly shattering climax, and the secret of the cave.
