What a beautiful fable! A young girl and her father are the last of the human race in the far future. The girl's father teaches her everything he knows about survival in anticipation of the day when she is alone. After her father passes while on a journey, it is up to the girl to find her way back home again. She is accompanied by a bear who helps her find her way through the wilderness.
There is so much depth to this equisite novel. There is the basic story but underlying it are layers of mystical folklore. ( )

Set in an unknown future where only two people still exist, THE BEAR by Andrew Krivak, marketed as a fable for adults, is yet reminiscent of humanity's early beginnings in the distant past, and describes the skills and behaviors that would have been necessary to survive and thrive in a harsh and often unforgiving environment. Some graphic hunting images may not be to everyone's taste, but I underlined passages in my galley as a reminder to revisit some of the poignant prose that resonated with me. THE BEAR is a slim gem, and leaves the impact of a much longer story. It touches on themes of family, the environment, the struggle for survival, and the need for harmony with nature. I enjoyed meeting the Bear, the Puma, and the fierce unnamed female narrator who was stronger than I could ever imagine. ( )

This is the first time I've ever applied the word beautiful to a book about the extinction of the human race. There's no oppressive dystopian government or apocalyptic event; it's just the natural end of a species and the world continuing on in its absence. Highly recommended. ( )
