9781594744600: Android Karenina (Quirk Classics)

"Literary hybrids of Jane Austen novels and zombie stories? That's "so" last year. Quirk Books, which released the best-selling novels "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters", has seen the future of the mashup novel, and it is Leo Tolstoy and robots."--"New York Times""Anna's nightmare, one of the most famous passages in "Anna Karenina", clearly anticipates the 'steampunk-inspired' atmosphere of "Android Karenina"... Tolstoy didn't know about steampunk or cyborgs, but he did know about the nightmarishness of steam power, unruly machines, and the creepy half-human status of the Russian peasant classes.""--Elif Batuman, "author of" The Possessed", via "The New Yorker""Creepy, thrilling, and highly enjoyable!"--"Library Journal" "Whenever a truly pulpy trend reaches its apotheosis like this, I can't help but wonder if we'll get a new classic out of it."--"io9" ""Android Karenina" lives up to its promise to make Tolstoy 'awesomer.'"--"The Onion AV Club" "Winters, a playwright, librettist, and author of "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters", connects all of Tolstoy's dots in the cleverly bizarre world he has created and he transforms a Russian novel into a reasonably demented work of science fiction."--"Galley Cat" "With "Android", Winters has given Tolstoy's beautiful Russian epic a steampunk edge, filling the book with robots, space travel and yes, even a few aliens."--"Techland"

Vom Verlag:
