Apocalipsis suave

Author: Will McIntosh Format: eBook Release Date: 29/06/2017

El fin del mundo, en incomodos plazosUna hoja de ruta para un futuro que ya hemos empezado a vivir"e;No somos vagabundos: somos nmadas."e; Es la espresin de la ltima brizna de dignidad que le queda a un universitario tras aos de desempleo, sin techo y sin blanca, que deambula con muchos otros en el lmite de la subsistencia. Como l, millones de desahuciados vagan por caminos y carreteras, desesperados por aferrarse a los ecos de un esplendor que ya no existe, mientras el sueo del capitalismo emite sus ltimos estertores. 'Apocalipsis suave' corta la respiracin no solo por la verosimilitud con la que describe (predice?) el colapso del capitalismo, sino por la escalofriante lucidez con la que, en paralelo, recrea la descomposicin de la personalidad de sus vctimas: la renuncia progresiva a valores que creemos absolutos y la pugna por mantener viva una llama que siga dndole sentido a la vida. "e;Vas a leer una novela acerca de lo lento y progresivo que puede ser el final de tu especie. Y te va a gustar."e;- Emilio Bueso

When Sully meets Hunter, a girl with a natural talent for finding spheres, the two start searching together. What they find will change more than just their lives . . .
