Sinopsis del libro THE RISE AND FALL OF DODO en castellano

You think you know how the world works?

Think about it again.

From bestselling author Neal Stephenson and acclaimed historical and contemporary commercial novelist Nicole Galland comes a captivating and complex near-future thriller that questions the very foundations of the modern world.

1851 England The Grand Exhibition opens at the Crystal Palace in London, celebrating the rise of technology and commerce.

With it, the power of magic - in decline since the beginning of the industrial revolution - is completely extinguished.

The existence of magic begins its gradual transformation into myth.

The magical America of the 21st century has disappeared from the minds of humanity, until a meeting between Melisande Stokes, a Harvard linguistics expert, and Tristan Lyons, a mysterious government agent, leads to the discovery of a distant past.

After translating a series of ancient texts, Melisande and Tristan discover the connection between science, magic and time travel, so the Department of Diachronic Operations - D.O.O.D.O. - is born hastily with the mission of developing a device that will take its agents back to the past, where they can stop the disappearance of magic and alter the course of history.

Written with the genius, complexity and innovation that characterize all of Neal Stephenson's work and soaked in the warmth and realistic humour of Nicole Galland's narrative style, this exciting and vividly performed science fiction work will make you believe in the impossible and take you to places - and times - beyond imagination.
