Resumen del libro

THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

';Sparkling with mystery, humor and the uncanny, this is afunread. But beneath its effervescent tone, more complex themes are at play.'San Francisco Chronicle

In his wildly entertaining debut novel, Hank Greencocreator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShowspins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.

The Carls just appeared.

Roaming through New York City at three a.m., twenty-three-year-old April May stumbles across a giant sculpture. Delighted by its appearance and craftsmanshiplike a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armorApril and her best friend, Andy, make a video with it, which Andy uploads to YouTube.

The next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the worldfrom Beijing to Buenos Airesand April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight.

Seizing the opportunity to make her mark on the world, April now has to deal with the consequences her new particular brand of fame has on her relationships, her safety, and her own identity. And all eyes are on April to figure out not just what the Carls are, but what they want from us.

Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the social internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring for the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye.

The beginning of an exciting fiction career, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is a bold and insightful novel of now.
