Remember Us is the third novel in the Odemark series by E.T. Gunnarsson. Simon lands on Earth from the Aracdis space station without a plan. He finds shelter thanks to Anna, his new friend. However, even with Anna supporting and guiding him, Simon has difficulty adjusting to the strange alien planet. Things get stressful one day when a blast in the sky makes Simon and Anna move, only to come across stranger people and even stranger happenings. On their journey to find a safe place, they encounter a group of tyrants led by a man identified as Father. Father's cult is filled with murderers and maniacs desperately searching for the Vessel to help them escape their misery. Strangely, it is up to Simon and Anna to stop all that before it is too late. Will a simple woman and a man from a space station save Earth?
E. T. Gunnarsson is spot on with this story! Remember Us starts with a bang, and I was hooked. I felt bad for Simon and how he ends up on Earth. The story is categorized as science fiction, but I would call it dystopian, with science fiction as a subcategory. Simon is the perfect character to lead the story. He is confused and struggling at first. Looking at the desolate Earth from afar, and living on the brown Earth is completely different. Anna is the perfect companion and provides a sense of comfort for Simon. She is his rock; in turn, he is the driving force for the duo. The narrative is powerful. Seeing Earth from the eyes of a character who lived away from it for a long time felt strange. Gunnarsson portrays the planet's desperation, emotions, and absolute mess well. I cannot praise it enough.
