Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

April 18, 2017 Leave a comment

Preluată de pe Jurnalul unei cititoare.

1. Primul autor român contemporan – ce carte ai citit?
Liviu Radu – mai multe povestiri. A fost prima cărămidă la temelia reinstaurării încrederii în autorii români.

2. De la ce autor român contemporan ai citit cele mai multe cărți?
Tot Liviu Radu, dacă povestirile online nu se pun.

3. Cuplul preferat din cărțile românești contemporane.
Nu îmi aduc aminte.

4. Eroul din cărțile românești contemporane în mâinile căruia ți-ai pune viața?

5. Fantasy sau romance românesc?
Fantasy, ce întrebare e asta? 🙂

6. Cărți românești – nume românești? Sau cărți românești – nume străine?
Prima variantă. Trăim timpuri în care nu mai e nevoie de a doua.

7. Eroina preferată?

8. Ultima carte românească citită?
Am terminat recent Arhitecții speranței de Alexandru Lamba. Citesc acum Cine doarme și viseaza de Cezarina Anghilac.

9. Care este următoarea carte semnată de un autor român contemporan pe care ți-ai propus să o citești?
Inima Dragonului de Mircea M. Țara sau Sub steaua infrarosie de Alexandru Lamba. Depinde de timpul liber pe care îl am în următoarele săptămâni.

10. Un mesaj pentru autorii români contemporani.
Mai puțină prețiozitate.
