Die Welt wie wir sie kannten

the book

It all begins when the media announce a unique spectacle: a meteor about to hit the moon.
Like everyone else, 16-year-old Miranda's family all gather in the street to watch the event. But when the meteor crashes, the impact is so great that the moon is thrown out of orbit and gradually moves nearer the earth. This starts to affect the earth's magnetic field: first there is television disturbance, then the mobile telephone network breaks down; bit by bit, people have to give up all the comforts of modern civilisation.

So - what does one do when there is no food left at the supermarket? When there's no more electricity? No running water? No proper heating because the oil has run out? And when it freezes and snow storms rage in August?

In her diary, Miranda vividly describes whether - and how - her family manages to survive.


The press

"It's just impossible to put the book down."
Süddeutsche Zeitung

"Authentically and graphically written, every page is packed with horror and genuine feelings."

"An amazing gripping and distressing book but, at the same time, a positive and thought-provoking novel."

"One of the best books of the year. You just can't put it down."
