An interesting tragicomedy fictional story about the end of humankind and its rebirth, as seen by a renegade ghost.
The plot is reported in a scattered way, full of considerations about the modern human society and behaviors. The book is provocative about the evolutionary inefficiency of having a big brain, and consequences too often evil of thinking and plotting.
"The thing was: One million years ago, back in A.D. 1986, Guayaquil was the chief seaport of the little South American democracy of Ecuador [...] Human beings had much bigger brains back then than they do today, and so they could be beguiled by mysteries."
The thing is: How misleading our far too big brains are, in our everyday life? ;)
