Description

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.

Review Text

Novela distópica inquietante pero esperanzadora, escrita en un híbrido de poesía y prosa que se asemeja a fragmentos de un diario.
En medio de una misteriosa crisis ambiental, con Londres sumergido bajo las aguas de una inundación, una mujer da a luz a su primer hijo, Z. Días después, la familia se ve obligada a abandonar su hogar en busca de seguridad. A medida que se mueven de un lugar a otro, de refugio en refugio, su viaje traza tanto el temor como el asombro, mientras los pequeños puños de Z se aferran a la vida. Esta es una historia sorprendentemente hermosa de maternidad en un entorno aterrador: un mundo familiar peligroso e inestable, de personas obligadas a convertirse en refugiados. Sin embargo, aunque el país se está desmoronando a su alrededor, el mundo de esta familia gira alrededor del amor y la bondad. Un libro hermoso y oportuno sobre la supervivencia, lleno de esperanza y humanidad.
