Reading an Apocalypse

_Solstice_ by Ulises Silva is an apocalypse, very bloody and
violent, about all the evil we humans are doing, about a
threat to rub out all humans, to cleanse the world. As
such, it is also a meditation on the source of evil and
its redemption. It is connected as well to the philosophy
of language and language mysticism. It depicts writing that
effects what it describes.

Enjoyment might not be the right word but I did appreciate
reading it. I do recommend it. I guess its genre is science
fiction/fantasy.
