I was definitely surprised by the ending. The story depicts beautiful country-side scenery of the Alps and the characters are well built in an intriguing way. Isaie was a mountain guide when he experienced a couple of traumatizing accidents that made him retire.
After that, his mental health deteriorated as he struggled to give the remainder of his life purpose. He lives with his younger brother, Marcellin, that he raised alone, in a hamlet at the foot of the imposing mountains. Every day he would do his chores and think of his treasured flock of sheep.
Besides, the brothers have conflicting views on work ethics, life expectations, and values. Marcellin has been seeking ways to make fortune when a plane crashes on the mountaintop one chilly November night.
The plane mainly transported mail and had a few passengers who were thought to be dead. He comes up with the idea of plundering the wreck site and forces his elder brother to guide him through the impracticable trails towards the summit. As they commence their escalation towards the top, Isaie begins to glimpse truth amid the foginess of his thoughts although the effort was excruciatingly arduous.
Upon arriving It reminds me of "Of mice and men". The theme of obsession is a never ending topic to write about.
