I really recommend that book to you, It's a trilogy, and I'm crazy for reading the two remaining books. Maybe it has a little of physics concepts but this makes the book even more interesting.

The other two books are really different with each other, the first "El poder de la decencia" it's a book written by a candidate to the presidency of my country, Colombia, he exposes his proposals and his experiences as a mayor and governor, it's interesting if you like to know a little about politics in my country.
Breakfast at Tiffany's has a central topic and it's around it's fancy main character, I saw the movie inspired on that book, and thought I could reproduce that experience reading the book and so it was.

Santiago Peña | 7 comments Update - 4th Book:
I started to read this book on 2016 and didn't finished it. So basically I had to re read all the book again, but I remembered all the things I liked about it.

Santiago Peña | 7 comments Update - 5th Book
It was a really captivating book, I've read it in 4 days! . You feel imprisoned by it's characters and the world in which they are involved. Basically, you're an habitant of the future in the search of the humanity redemption.
