Dech


Nic pro nás není tak přirozené jako dýchání. Představte si ale svět, ve kterém si jen privilegovaní mohou koupit dostatek kyslíku k tomu, aby mohli tančit či si zahrát obyčejný fotbal. Svět, kde chudí jen stěží zaplatí účet za vzduch nezbytný k životu. Svět, v němž po netušené katastrofě přežívá zbytek obyvatel v hermeticky uzavřených městech s vlastní atmosférou. Pustou planetu Zemi, kde nejvzácnějším rostlinným druhem je obyčejný strom.Právě v takovém světě žije Alina, Bea, Quinn a jejich přátelé. Od ostatních mladých lidí se liší svou přemýšlivostí a odvahou něco ve svém okolí změnit. Odvahou nadechnout se jinak než druzí – svobodně. Dystopický román mladé irsko-americké autorky plný dobrodružství, při němž se doslova tají dech.

Sarah Crossan regénye két egymás árnyékában létező házasság élveboncolása, egy volt szerető érzelemteli, ám kegyetlenül őszinte vallomása szerelemről, veszteségről, az elengedés és a megbocsátás útvesztőiről.
