What others have said:
"The story is about some distant future time, and yet it seems as if you were back in the Stone Age. The authors paint a hopeless scenario: Winter, cold and snow as far as the eye can see. Loneliness, lurking dangers in the form of sickness, hunger, death, and wolves ... Advent, the arrival: The classic theme of the protagonist journeying toward his destiny. Light, hope, and trust: Traditional Christmas images in an unusual Christmas story."
