Reviews

Lauren Beukes es la mejor. Este thriller sobre las consecuencias de una pandemia en un mundo casi apocaliptico sobre una madre protegiendo a su hijo de los extremismos y el peligro esta muy on point.

Tiene un ritmo endiablado que te mantiene enganchado, un trio protagonista que funcionan muy bien y una ambientación muy bien construida y documentada aunque sea todo ficción.

Lauren Beukes no falla i encara que no arrivi a les cotes maestres de Les Lluminoses, Zoo City demostra per què és tan bona escriptora.

Misteri, critica social i un ritme que va in crescendo, són els ingredients d’una novel•la que atrapa al lector. Si no l’he acabat abans ha estat més per una vida que no m’ho ja permés que per la qualitat de la lectura. M’alegro acabar 2022 amb algo així.

Quina meravella, un llibre rodó sobre assesinats i viatges temporals, amb una documentació impecable i uns personatges molt ben definits. Fins i tot els més secundaris.

Necesito llegir més coses de l’autora.

This book started off really slow... I was about 50% into it before I started getting into the story. By the end, it was good (not great), but so far out of the three books I've read by this author, this one was the best.
