Read full description of the books:



Roger Maitland, 35 años y arquitecto de éxito, sale de la gran ciudad un viernes por la tarde para disfrutar de un fin de semana en el campo. Sin embargo, cuando se encuentra en medio de un nudo de autopistas a las afueras de Londres, sufre un terrible accidente de automóvil. No hay otros coches implicados ni testigos. Su vehículo se sale de la autopista y va a parar a una isla de vegetación que está por debajo de los carriles de circulación.

Conmocionado y varado en medio de la nada, cerca de personas que pasan a toda velocidad sin verlo, se encuentra como un nuevo Robinson Crusoe obligado a sobrevivir con los pocos recursos que tiene a su disposición y con su fortaleza física y mental, mientras reflexiona sobre el proceso que le ha llevado a esta isla de deshumanización y alienación tan cerca de la civilización a la que él ha contribuido a forjar.

Read information about the author

Ebook La Isla de Hormigón read Online! James Graham "J. G." Ballard (15 November 1930 – 19 April 2009) was an English novelist, short story writer, and essayist. Ballard came to be associated with the New Wave of science fiction early in his career with apocalyptic (or post-apocalyptic) novels such as The Drowned World (1962), The Burning World (1964), and The Crystal World (1966). In the late 1960s and early 1970s Ballard focused on an eclectic variety of short stories (or "condensed novels") such as The Atrocity Exhibition (1970), which drew closer comparison with the work of postmodernist writers such as William S. Burroughs. In 1973 the highly controversial novel Crash was published, a story about symphorophilia and car crash fetishism; the protagonist becomes sexually aroused by staging and participating in real car crashes. The story was later adapted into a film of the same name by David Cronenberg.

While many of Ballard's stories are thematically and narratively unusual, he is perhaps best known for his relatively conventional war novel, Empire of the Sun (1984), a semi-autobiographical account of a young boy's experiences in Shanghai during the Second Sino-Japanese War as it came to be occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army. Described as "The best British novel about the Second World War" by The Guardian, the story was adapted into a 1987 film by Steven Spielberg.

The literary distinctiveness of Ballard's work has given rise to the adjective "Ballardian", defined by the Collins English Dictionary as "resembling or suggestive of the conditions described in J. G. Ballard's novels and stories, especially dystopian modernity, bleak man-made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments." The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography entry describes Ballard's work as being occupied with "eros, thanatos, mass media and emergent technologies".
