El bosque oscuro (Trilogía de los Tres Cuerpos 2)

Author: Cixin Liu Narrator: Francesc Belda Release Date: May 2019

Escucha ahora la esperada continuación de El problema de los tres cuerpos, el mejor libro de ciencia ficción y fantasía de 2016 según El Periódico, y uno de los diez mejores libros de ficción de 2016 según Playground. La mejor ciencia ficción disponible en formato audiolibro Ahora la Tierra tiene cuatro siglos para defenderse de lo inevitable: la llegada de los Trisolaris. Los colaboracionistas humanos pueden haber sido derrotados, pero los sofones permiten a los extraterrestres acceder a la información de la humanidad, dejando al descubierto toda estrategia de defensa. Solo la mente humana sigue siendo un secreto, y ahora también la clave del acuciante plan que urdirán tres estadistas, un científico y un sociólogo. «La trilogía de los Tres Cuerpos» es el gran fenómeno editorial que ha conquistado Occidente tras vender cuatro millones de ejemplares solamente en China y haberse hecho con prescriptores de la talla de Barack Obama, George R.R. Martin o Mark Zuckeberg. Cixin Liu se considera el gran descubrimiento de la ciencia ficción internacional tras alzarse con el Premio Hugo 2015 a la mejor novela, siendo la primera vez que una obra no escrita originariamente en inglés recibe este auténtico Nobel del género. La crítica ha dicho... «Increíblemente imaginativa, realmente interesante.» Barack Obama «Un descubrimiento. Una mezcla única de especulación científica y filosófica, de teoría de la conspiración y cosmología.» George R.R. Martin «Una tregua divertida a todos esos libros sobre economía y ciencias sociales que he estado leyendo últimamente.» Mark Zuckeberg

The year is 2066 and the world is oblivious to the threat it faces. The fate of humanity lies on the shoulders of Burt Radcliffe, the new head of NASA's Near Earth Object program. He's been rushing the completion of DefenseNet, a ring of satellites that are both part of an early-warning system as well as the means to eliminate incoming threats. Yet Burt knows that despite the world's best efforts, nothing can be done about the alert he's just received. Coming out of deep space is a danger that's been approaching since the dawn of time. A black hole. An unstoppable threat that promises death for all in its wake. Dave Holmes was a modern-day Einstein. As the original architect of DefenseNet, he'd had visions of this Primordial Threat before he disappeared, yet he'd left behind no details on how the problem might be solved. Can Holmes be found, and if so, will his solution even work? The world has less than a year to find out.

In this Philip K. Dick Award–winning series, one woman’s unknowable destiny depends on a bold new step in human evolution. In the wake of the apocalypse, Flora has come of age in a highly gendered post-plague society where females have become a precious, coveted, hunted, and endangered commodity.

An anathema in a world that prizes procreation above all else, she is an outsider everywhere she goes, including the thriving all-female city of Shy. Now navigating a blighted landscape, Flora, her friends, and a sullen young slave she adopts as her own child leave their oppressive pasts behind to find their place in the world. They seek refuge aboard a ship where gender is fluid, where the dynamic is uneasy, and where rumors flow of a bold new reproductive strategy. When the promise of a miraculous hope for humanity’s future tears Flora’s makeshift family asunder, she must choose: protect the safe haven she’s built or risk everything to defy oppression, whatever its provenance.

Doggerland Audiobook

Doggerland

Author: Ben Smith Narrator: Peter Noble Release Date: April 2019

'The Road meets Waiting for Godot: powerful, unforgettable, unique' Melissa Harrison, author of At Hawthorn Time. Doggerland is a superbly gripping debut novel about loneliness and hope, nature and survival - set on an off-shore windfarm in the not-so-distant future. 'His father's breath had been loud in the small room. It had smelled smoky, or maybe more like dust. He had knotted and unknotted a strap on the bag he was holding - he must have been leaving to go out to the farm that day. 'I'll get out,' he'd said. 'I'll come back for you, ok?' The boy remembered that; had always remembered it. And, for a time, he'd believed it too.' In the North Sea, far from what remains of the coastline, a wind farm stretches for thousands of acres. The Boy, who is no longer really a boy, and the Old Man, whose age is unguessable, are charged with its maintenance. They carry out their never-ending work, scoured by wind and salt, as the waves roll, dragging strange shoals of flotsam through the turbine fields. Land is only a memory. So too is the Boy's father, who worked on the turbines before him, and disappeared. The boy has been sent by the Company to take his place, but the question of where he went and why is one for which the Old Man will give no answer. As his companion dredges the sea for lost things, the Boy sifts for the truth of his missing father. Until one day, from the limitless water, a plan for escape emerges... This beautifully crafted novel about loneliness and hope, nature and survival, is as haunting as it is compelling - a very special debut indeed.
