Críticas:

In" All the Birds in the Sky," Charlie Jane Anders darts and soars, with dazzling aplomb, among the hypotheticals of science fiction, the counterfactuals of fantasy, and the bittersweet mundanities of contemporary American life, throwing lightning bolts of literary style that shimmer with enchantment or electrons. She tackles profound, complicated questions, vast and insignificant as the fate of the planet, tiny and crucial as the vagaries of friendship, rocketing the reader through a pocket-sized epic of identity whose sharply-drawn protagonists come to feel like the reader's best friends.

The very short list of novels that dare to traffic as freely in the uncanny and wondrous as in big ideas, and to create an entire, consistent, myth-ridden alternate world that is still unmistakably our own, all while breaking the reader's heart into the bargain--I think of masterpieces like "The Lathe of Heaven"; "Cloud Atlas"; "Little, Big"--has just been extended by one. "Michael Chabon"

Like the work of other 21st century writers Kelly Link and Lev Grossman come immediately to mind "All the Birds in the Sky" serves as both a celebration of and corrective to the standard tropes of genre fiction...Anders' humor elevates this marvelous book above the morass of dystopian novels that have flooded the literary landscape. The result feels like one of William Gibson's baroquely complex worlds, aerated by lighter-than-air dialogue and an engaging, diverse cast of supporting characters you'd love to meet at your next end-of-the-world party. "The Los Angeles Times"

Into each generation of science fiction/fantasydom a master absurdist must fall, and it s quite possible that with "All the Birds in the Sky, " Charlie Jane Anders has established herself as the one for the Millennials As hopeful as it is hilarious, and highly recommended. "The New York Times Book Review"

A fairy tale and an adventure rolled into one, "All the Birds in the Sky" is a captivating novel that shows how science and magic can be two sides of the same coin. "The Washington Post"

This book is a beta from an indie making magic spell apps. It's an interactive guide to artisanal potions. This book is the first person you know with a crazy realist 3D tattoo. This book is a hipster and a nerd and when you read it you'll know what I mean. "Maureen McHugh, award-winning author of China Mountain Zhang"

Everything you could ask for in a debut novel a fresh look at science fiction s most cherished memes, ruthlessly shredded and lovingly reassembled. "Cory Doctorow"

It s every bit as imaginative, witty, and moving as you d hope an entertaining and audacious melding of science, magic, and just plain real life that feels perfectly right for our time. "Isaac Fitzgerald, Buzzfeed Books Newsletter""

Reseña del editor:

From the former editor-in-chief of io9.com, a stunning novel about the end of the world and the beginning of our future

Childhood friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn't expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during middle school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one's peers and families.

But now they're both adults, living in the hipster mecca San Francisco, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Little do they realize that something bigger than either of them, something begun years ago in their youth, is determined to bring them together to either save the world, or plunge it into a new dark ages.

Charlie Jane Anders' All the Birds in the Sky is a deeply magical, darkly funny examination of life, love, and the apocalypse.
