Without love life is not worth living.
After the publication of tears in the rain and the weight of the heart, arrives the times of hate, the third installment in the Bruna Husky series to continue the science fiction and reality story starring this unique combat android.
Of all the characters created by Rosa Montero, Bruna Husky is the closest to her in a very intimate sense; It is about his deepest alter ego in relation to “the strength, rage and despair he feels due to the passage of time and death
The times of hate (Seix Barral) is considered by the author as one of the most exciting novels she has written. In it he talks about violence, sectarianism, the lack of social agreement described in democracy and the excesses of power, current issues that he combines with the ideas that characterize his work: the passage of time, the fear of death, love to life and the need for love to live.
Independent, unsociable, intuitive and powerful, the replicant detective Bruna Husky has only one vulnerable point: her big heart. When Inspector Lizard disappears without a trace, she launches a desperate search against the clock. Her investigation leads her to a remote colony of New Old Ones, a sect that disavows technology, as well as to trace the origins of a dark plot of power that dates back to the 16th century. Meanwhile, the world situation is becoming more and more convulsive, populist tension is increasing and civil war seems inevitable.
Rosa Montero offers a reflection on the exercise of power: the advance of populisms that, to the left or to the right, have so much to do with each other, and are turning the world upside down. Also about climate change, the inhuman dependence on technology and about a paradoxical and cruel world, exactly the same as the one we live in now.
