Charles Hold is a rare example of a person who, even at an old age, lets his mind wander about the uneven course of humanity and he wants to give his contribution, utopian as it might be. He does it writing a book describing a parallel between the present world and the ideal one, after a cataclysm of universal proportions, with few surviving groups forming flourishing and indivisible communities and a prodigious quality of life. Forced to restart a new way of living in a community, they decide to abstain from anything which might provoke discord. His work combines suspense and romance, using as background a better world. To the surprise of the author and the editorial market the book became a bestseller and awakens in the readers reflections on the present world we live in. More admirable as yet is the example which the author of the “Human Mankind” gives us; Pablo L.Mainzer was an economist 91 years old when he wrote this book with the intention to keep his mind alert. Instead of crosswords, as recommended for old people, he chooses the improbable – the literature. He astonishes us with a lucid work, articulated and captive, reproducing the world´s problems which shame all of us called “human” beings.
“The Human Mankind” for all these reasons deserves to be acquainted with, but as well for its quality. You will be surprised!
