Muerte súbita se vale de todas las armas de los angeles escritura literaria para dibujar un momento tan deslumbrante y atroz en l. a. historia del mundo que sólo puede ser representado mediante l. a. más venerable y maltratada de las tecnologías, el artefacto cuya regla de oro es que no tiene reglas: Su Majestad l. a. novela.
