Darlings, can you suggest me books about a group of people descending into savagery?
I'm writing a novel about a train that has 19 people onboard and that kills them one by one while chugging along abandoned tracks in the middle of snowy nowhere. Slowly, they come to understand that they won't come out alive and give in to survival instincts that include murder.
I want to study group psychology of gradual moral deterioration and the ultimate arrival at our most primitive state: I will kill you before you will kill me.
I have read Lord of the Flies, loved it. I'm going to read Battle Royale and Under the Dome. Is there anything else that you know of or have read that unfolds in a geographically isolated place and involves brutal survival with a hint of paranormal? Thank you so much. I love you.
