Cardanica by Dario Tonani
This short story follows two survivors of a disaster in a poisonous desert. The life craft that they chose to escape in turns out to be anything by a lifesaver.
This book is a real page turner, the first few pages confused me, then, I was hooked. A real technophobe meets Kubrick piece of writing. The feel is dark and claustrophobic and the action dinghy and cruel.
A horror thriller to read and cringe.
