Ironic and Tormented. The author doses sarcasm and melancholy with knowledge that stimulates the reader to understand, and breath inside one’s own life. A novel that makes noise already with its title. Quaranta ruggenti are the strong winds blowing from the west with strong roaring sounds at the fortieth parallel of the southern hemisphere where the cold air of the Antarctic clashes with the hot air of the oceans. Questions and doubts emerge among the heat that is inside and with the cold that is outside.
