By Leo Tolstoy, Ben H. Winters

Their passions by myself will be adequate to devour them-but while a mystery cabal of radical medical revolutionaries launches an assault on Russian excessive society's high-tech way of life, our heroes needs to struggle again with all their braveness, all their devices, and the entire strength of a swish new cyborg version like not anything the area has ever seen.
jam-packed with an identical mixture of romance, drama, and delusion that made the first Quirk Classics New York Times most sensible , Android Karenina brings this celebrated sequence into the fascinating global of technology fiction.
