Android Karenina : Quirk Classic #4
Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters co-author Ben H. Winters is back with an all-new collaborator, legendary Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy, and the result is Android Karenina--an enhanced edition of the classic love story set in a dystopian world of robots, cyborgs, and interstellar space travel.
As in the original novel, our story follows two relationships: The tragic adulterous love affair of Anna Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the more hopeful marriage of Konstantin Levin and Kitty Shcherbatskaya. These characters live in a steampunk-inspired world of robotic butlers, clumsy automatons, and rudimentary mechanical devices. But when these copper-plated machines begin to revolt against their human masters, our characters must fight back using state-of-the-art 19th-century technology--and a sleek new model of ultra-human cyborgs like nothing the world has ever seen.
Filled with the same blend of romance, drama, and fantasy that made the first two Quirk Classics New York Times best sellers, Android Karenina brings this celebrated series into the exciting world of science fiction.
LEO TOLSTOY wrote two of the greatest novels in world literature: War and Peace and Anna Karenina. BEN H. WINTERS is coauthor of the New York Times Best Seller Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, which was hailed by The Onion A.V. Club as a "sheer delight" and by Library Journal as "strangely entertaining, like a Weird Al version of an opera aria." Mr. Winters lives in Brooklyn.
The Critics Love Ben H. Winters's Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters!
"The effect is strangely entertaining, like a Weird Al version of an opera aria, and Eugene Smith's amusing illustrations add an extra touch of bizarre hilarity."--Library Journal
"Quirk commissioned Ben H. Winters to punch up Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility with man-eating beasts from the briny deep. And once again, to the consternation of purists everywhere, the result is sheer delight."--The Onion A.V. Club
"It's a monsterpiece."--Real Simple
"While preserving the clever dialogue and nuanced love story that drive Sense and Sensibility, Winters skillfully overlays the horror elements, producing another bizarre hybrid that will appeal to the same cult Austen audience as Zombies."--Booklist
