By Bertha Fernandini

ISBN-13: 9781530644933

Aquello que da inicio a una novela es algo indescifrable, misterioso. Uno jamás puede saber en qué momento recogemos una serie de datos, sensaciones, reflexiones, y las almacenamos en un depósito al inside de nosotros mismos hasta que de pronto se hace demasiado obvio que lo que hemos hecho es alimentar una obra literaria.
Patricia Fernandini ha escrito una novela con un fin muy concreto que en sus palabras implica: “iniciar una reacción en cadena de conciencia ecológica para preservar nuestro hábitat y asegurar un futuro a nuestras nuevas generaciones”. Sin embargo, también afirma que los angeles historia empezó un día cualquiera de modo “tan extraño como repentino”.

Extraño y repentino es el designio que moviliza a l. a. protagonista de “Grama... posible edén”. Una mancha roja en l. a. pierna que ella no atribuye a los angeles casualidad sino a una contingencia: esa mancha le anuncia que está marcada por el destino. Basta ese pequeño detalle para hacernos ingresar con curiosidad a los angeles novela. ¿Será cierto que está destinada para grandes cosas?
Pensamos que probablemente sí, porque es personaje de una novela y, como se sabe, en las novelas suelen suceder cosas extraordinarias. Pero no siempre. ¿Le sucederán cosas así a ella? Cuando l. a. protagonista viaja a l. a. selva encuentra en los angeles casa de un tal health practitioner Hans, de pronto y por azar, un manuscrito titulado “Mis sueños en el Ginkgo” sabemos que l. a. impresión de que algo estupendo, fuera de lo ordinario, está por sucederle. El manuscrito los angeles conduce a una dimensión épica, a catástrofes donde mueren miles de millones de personas, a fenómenos climáticos y atmosféricos fuera de keep an eye on por culpa de los angeles contaminación. Nos hablan de enemigos, de destrucción del planeta, del hombre como un animal egoísta. Pero también hay una salvación: una nave que parte al espacio en busca de respuestas. los angeles Atzol 1. Y en ella llegan a un planeta verde, virginal, una arcadia perdida a los angeles que llaman Grama por su predominante colour verde.

Así, l. a. novela de Patricia Fernandini avanza en un mundo actual, donde los angeles amenaza de los angeles contaminación es latente, y el mundo de ciencia ficción del manuscrito que lee los angeles protagonista, donde esa amenaza se ha hecho realidad pero donde no faltan los héroes, en especial el Capitán Leo, digno personaje de alguna novela gráfica de los angeles DC Comics o de las sequence televisivas japonesas.

Dos realidades paralelas, dos mundos distintos, los angeles fantasía y l. a. realidad. Todos los elementos de una buena trama han sido expuestos y esperamos su desarrollo. El lector sabrá disfrutarlos y se divertirá cabalgando -como los angeles protagonista- entre un filo y otro, sin duda, y por eso termino estas breves palabras para no demorar más ese momento.
Sin embargo, les dejo una pregunta: ¿puede l. a. fantasía, l. a. ficción, el mundo imaginario, enseñarnos algo a quienes vivimos en l. a. realidad más concreta? ¿Existe en los libros y las historias más fantásticas e increíbles alguna enseñanza o, más precisamente, alguna advertencia muy puntual para nuestro mundo?

Ojalá los angeles respuesta l. a. encontremos todos al ultimate de los angeles aventura.
