"Solitude" is a truly inspirational story about a man who spend a whole year in a real wild setting. We may follow how he struggles not only with harsh weather and food finding process but also his interior demons and deep thoughts. The book looks like journal entries mixed with his contemplations. He couldn't avoid it as he had no social distractions, the only companion he had was his own mind and a cat. he is honest and authentic in his writing that's why the book is so captivating. You need to have a lot of courage to go on an excursion like that, experience all those deep feelings and thoughts and describe all of it, with pain, sorrow, joy and peace. All of that flows out from the books' pages. As soon as I was engaged in this story I didn't want to put it down. Although the described world seems to be extremely difficult, you get easily immersed in it. And what is more, he combined it with some spiritual search, the author wanted to find The Answers about us and the world. But are there any real answers? All we can do is to search and sometimes the conditions are really extreme. like here. High recommendation.
