Overview I morgen er alt mørkt: Brages historie

Brage is a fairly normal teenager, albeit with a longing for the beautiful and unattainable Frida and a group of good friends around him.

But one day, disturbing news comes from Japan: a large group of people are running wild, and apparently blinded by their rage, they wreak havoc on everything and everyone in their way. It is believed to be a form of mass psychosis. At first, the news doesn’t hit the main headlines. A few weeks later the phenomenon has spread across much of Japan. And when the same happens in China, with millions killed as a result, people begin to take notice. The Internet crashes, TV broadcasts stop, people flee, society collapses – and then they report that the infection has reached Halden…

Brage is soon faced with some impossible choices when his family and group of friends are torn apart and people he knows and relies on are infected and creating chaos. There’s only one option for survival – seeking refuge in the forest. He’s not the only one who sees this way out, and soon there is an entire communityliving there while those infected lay waste to the towns. But are they safe from infection? Is the greatest threat within their own ranks?

A scary Norwegian dystopia where the wilderness and survival are central.

‘This is horrifying, thought-provoking and action-packed. ... It is the commonplaceness of this book that makes it so frighteningly powerful. That this could happen to us here in little, out-of-the-way Norway. The parallels with the Ebola crisis are obvious. ... The book is exciting and has action and drive – as well as love. I can’t see why it would not be a hit with young readers of dystopian fiction.’
DAGBLADET

‘A serious doomsday novel that pushes the limits of what a young adult book can contain. ... The first part is a credible depiction of the development of a global crisis as seen through Brage’s eyes. ... It successfully demonstrates how our modern media reality gives everything a sense of the unreal. ... It [the picture painted by Brage] is a complex, psychological portrait of a rare and complicated character in Norwegian young adult literature. ... It is dark, and it is intense.’

‘Sigbjørn Mostue can write horror that sends chills up your spine. He does the same in this novel, I morgen er alt mørkt.’

‘Read this book. Be afraid!’
BYAVISA FREDRIKSTAD

The book is really exciting, and as soon as you have read a few pages it becomes difficult to lay it down. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is a splendid read for 13 – 17 year olds.’

Reviews from I morgen er alt mørkt: Brages historie
"Bra fortalt og veldig spennende. [...] Boka er veldig spennende og når du først har lest noen sider, blir den vanskelig å legge ifra seg. Jeg hadde en veldig god le seopplevelse gjennom denne boken. Den passer ypperlig for ungdom i 13–17-årsalderen."
 
Nils Korsvold (Selbu ungdomsskole), Adresseavisen

Skrekkinngytende alminnelig

"Den er gruoppvekkende, tankevekkende og actionfylt. [...] Nettopp alminneligheten er også denne bokas skrekkinngytende styrke. Det at det kan skje oss, her i bortskjemte, lille Norge. Parallellene til Ebola-frykten er åpenbar. [...] boka er spennende, den har action og driv - og litt kjærlighet. Jeg kan ikke forstå annet enn at den vil fenge unge dystopikere."Cathrine Krøger , Dagbladet

Sterkt om zombie-apokalypsen

En alvorlig endetidsroman som tøyer grensene for hva en ungdomsbok kan inneholde. [...] I hele sitt forfatterskap har Mostue satt problemer under debatt, og i denne boka gjør han det mer enn noen gang. Første del er en troverdig skildring av utviklingen av en global krise, sett gjennom Brages øyne. [...] Det kommer fint frem hvordan den moderne medievirkeligheten gir alt et uvirkelig skjær [...] Parallellen til den pågående ebola-epedimien, og den rike verdens manglende evne til å stoppe den, er påfallende. [...] Han skriver spesielt godt når det er mye som skjer, og når det først blir litt action blir boken skikkelig medrivende. [...] Det [bildet som tegnes av Brage] er et komplekst psykologisk portrett av en sjeldent sammensatt karakter i norsk ungdomslitteratur. [...] Dette er mørkt, og det er intenst. [...] Jeg leste siste del av boka sittende på nåler, med en klump i halsen. Den tar deg til steder andre ungdomsbøker sjelden går, og den ble sittende i meg, lenge etter siste side."Ingrid Kvamme Fredriksen, Barnebokkritikk.no
