- THE TERRARIUM ECHO REVIEW -
I’m going to try to respond to the last question without revealing the plot of this novel.
Yes, the life of the different characters not only can change, it actually change; all and each of them, for different reasons that we would discover, are going to be affected and every step after the electronic voice phenomena appearance would make them recall the old fears or they just would feel guilty of what they actually judge, as everyone would feel if judging without proofs, knowledge and in a rush.
Alfonso Santianes was taken into preventive custody thanks to an unfair law and being in preventive custody might have also inclined the jury members to declare him guilty of a crime with many unanswered questions.
A solid plot thanks not to the writer but to his characters, would make it impossible to take our eyes away from the book wishing to discover the ending; we need to know if the judge and the society were right or on the contrary took the easiest road.
Through this black novel you would taste the underworlds that live at night, the addictions and dark lives of a few characters, the fears of being identify, of truth becoming common knowledge, and that your life end up published on the front page; they all have a past or something to hide, they all are small ants that give voice to a story to be yet discovered and to the facts that might still be incomplete.
From a black novel we move to a thriller because Ramón knows well how to pull the threads and delivers all the voices that have something to say in this case, even their own version or fears only, but each character will tell us his verdict and his reasoning; chaining thus each character when you less expect it and in the right moment without losing rhythmus and reveling to us the convicted in a more ample manner.
A novel that you won’t be able to stop reading before you can throw out of your mind the voices, voices that are going to give you the necessary traces to understand and resolve this case.
