Die Wand (The Wall)

Die Wand by Marlen Haushofer is a kind of Robinson Crusoe story. A woman survives a catastrophy and finds herself isolated behind an invisible wall. In her new world she struggles to survive being alone with just a cow, a dog and a cat.

It fascinates me how she can cope alone and adjusts to the hard life and finds a way in her new world. Only the animals can make it possible to survive and are her only companions.
