A thrillingly original novel published in thirty-three countries to worldwide acclaim, The New York Times Magazine called The Raw Shark Texts a genre-founding work of fiction.Eric Sanderson wakes up in a house he doesn’t recognize, unable to remember anything of his life.

Esta es una de esas lecturas confusas pero que uno termina amando. Dentro de todo el enredo hay partes realmente buenas, otras un poco ambiciosas pero funciona muy bien.Mi bajo puntaje es porque en ebook me costó trabajo entrar de lleno en lo innovativo del libro.
