here it is In an Edenic future a girl and her father live close to theit is In an Edenic future a girl and her father live close to the in the shadow of a lone mountain They possess a few remnants of civilization some books a pane of glass a set of flint and steel a comb The father teaches the girl how to fish and hunt the secrets of the seasons and the stars He is preparing her for an adulthood in harmony with nature for they are the last of humankind But when the girl finds herself alone in an unknown landscape it is a bear that will lead her back home through a vast wilderness that offers the greatest lessons of all if she can only learn to listen I love fables am mysteriously drawn to dystopian worlds and have a high appreciation of those that know how to survive using the Seductive Surrender earth s natural resources Even though this story seemed to have all of theselements based on its description I almost gave it a pass and would have missed out on one of the most captivating short stories The writing is elegant in its simplicity and the underlying messages in its simplicity and the underlying messages throughout I longed for but found the nding to be perfection The narrator s performance was so subtle never giving in to any need for dramatization because the writing didn t need it It s a great story no matter if you read or listen but I highly recommend the audio version This was just lovely Thanks to the publisher and Librofm for my complimentary copy All opinions are my own. Alone in an unknown landscape it is a bear that will lead her back home through a vast wilderness that offers the greatest lessons of all if she can learn to listen A cautionary tale of human fragility of love and loss The Bear is a stunning tribute to the beauty of nature’s dominion.
