This paper deals with issues of books survival and literature in the new century, considering the theme in correlation with the essential elements that define it: how the development of new technologies, especially the Internet and social networks, affects bookstores, libraries and publishing houses, but also the language and an alphabet (a creation of new, pictorial letters in modern communication), themes of countries in transition contemporary literature (war) that affect the sense of writing and literature survival in general. By associations of the past imposed on the present, “Big Brother” and “A Clockwork Orange”, and a trip to the Amazon region tribes , which in the 21st century do not have their alphabet, it is trying to provide a vision of the modern world, in which writing and books in their physical form survive as human needs, where the sense of writing leads to equalization with the meaning of life.
