serial killer trova portale del tempo

probabilmente merita più di 3 stelle perchè è strutturato bene e lo stile è ottimo ma non mi ha preso

Devoured this book over a single day-- being sick and on bed rest is good for something, right?

It was good company; I was intrigued, kept intrigued, at how things panned out. I really enjoyed the layers of detail, but I think we could have had some places where this got tightened. A second reading while less drugged might reveal more that I missed. But even while in my medicated state, I got a lot out of this book.

I'm hoping for another one in this world; maybe not about Zinzi herself (though I found her engaging, don't get me wrong, but I think her story is told - though I would have liked to have known more, had a clearer picture of the wrongs she's done beyond the obvious) but certainly about the world and the animals and it's strange magical systems.

The worldbuilding, magical realism layered atop a more cyberpunk thriller reminds me of the old gaming system for Shadowrun (and I would suggest this book to anyone who has played that particular game). Not 100% original, but great writers steal, not borrow! I think that the flavors she sets in with this are good, gritty and ugly and in places, hopeful. It's not your average urban fantasy, which is good, because I've got my staples for that already. This was cyberfantasy, or post-cyberpunk-fantasy, daring to touch on scenes that the average wizard/vampire/werewolf/faerie detective book won't touch. I love it for that.

Either way: an engaging, if quick read. I'll definitely be looking for Moxyland by the same author.

2024 book #23. 2013. Kirby survives her encounter with a time traveling serial killer and vows to track him down. Creepy story but kind of hard to follow due to the time hopping chapter order. The killer, Harper, is not given much depth nor an explanation of how this is happening

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.
