The burden of the heart, by Rosa Montero


Maybe El peso del corazón (roughly translated as The burden of the heart) won't look as the most proper title for a detective and futuristic work. Even so, from this last kind is what the most recent book by Rosa Montero partly pretends to be. The experienced author has taken up again her detective android, Bruna Husky, and put her in a story seasoned with social and environmental criticism. This way, with the action located again in that supposed Earth in a century from now, Montero deepens in the evils of that world to come and... The same defects which weighed down Husky's first adventure.
