Ebook en oferta: Lord of All Things, de Andreas Eschbach

Dicen que nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena. Y es que aunque lleva publicado ya un par de meses, me he enterado hoy mismo de que hay un nuevo libro de Andreas Eschbach traducido al inglés y, además, ¡hoy está de oferta en su versión digital! La novela se titula Lord of All Things y ganó el Kurd-Laßwitz-Preis 2012. Tiene 656 páginas y se puede adquirir durante el día de hoy por 2,62€ en su versión digital en Amazon España.

Ésta es su sinopsis:
Winner of the 2012 Kurd-Laßwitz-Preis for best German science fiction novel, Lord of All Things is also a story about love against all odds. 
They are just children when they meet for the first time: Charlotte, daughter of the French ambassador, and Hiroshi, a laundress’s son. One day, Hiroshi declares that he has an idea that will change the world. An unprecedented idea of how to sweep away all differences between rich and poor. 
When Hiroshi runs into Charlotte several years later, he is trying to build a brighter future through robotics. Determined to win Charlotte’s love, he resurrects his childhood dream, convinced that he can eradicate world poverty by pushing the limits of technology beyond imagination. But as Hiroshi circles ever closer to realizing his vision, he discovers that his utopian dream may contain the seeds of a nightmare—one that could obliterate life as we know it. 
Crisscrossing the globe from Tokyo to the hallowed halls of MIT to desolate Arctic islands and Buenos Aires and beyond—far beyond—Lord of All Things explores not only the dizzying potential of technology but also its formidable dangers.
