Overview

El final del que partimos, es una historia apasionante de un futuro tan realista como aterrador. Durante una misteriosa crisis ambiental, una joven da a luz a su primer hijo, Z. Aterrados ante un mundo que se tambalea, donde todo a su alrededor se ha vuelto peligroso e inestable, la familia se ve obligada a abandonar su hogar en busca de seguridad. En un periplo que nos recuerda vivamente al mundo distópico de La carretera, de Cormac McCarthy, el viaje mostrará tanto el temor como el asombro de ver cómo los pequeños puños de Z se aferran a la vida, en una lucha por la supervivencia en la que las personas sacan lo peor, pero también lo mejor, de sí mismas. Una novela sorprendentemente hermosa y oportuna sobre la supervivencia y la maternidad, sobre el futuro que nos acecha, pero también sobre la esperanza y la humanidad.El final del que partimos is an exciting story of a future as realistic as it is terrifying. During a mysterious environmental crisis, a young woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Terrified of a world that is reeling, where everything around them has become dangerous and unstable, the family is forced to leave their home in search of safety. In a journey that is vividly reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's dystopian world of The Road, the journey will show both the fear and amazement of seeing Z's little fists clinging to life, in a struggle for survival in which people bring out the worst, but also the best, in themselves. A surprisingly beautiful and timely novel about survival and motherhood, about the future that lies ahead, but also about hope and humanity.
