About this title:

Synopsis: Em 1883, a violenta erupcao da ilha vulcanica de Krakatoa, na Indonesia, deixou em seu rastro 36 mil mortos e uma cratera aberta no fundo do mar. Outros vulcoes ja haviam explodido antes, e outros explodiriam no futuro, mas a erupcao do Krakatoa teve uma dimensao inedita e ate hoje nao igualada. A explosao nao destruiu apenas a montanha que formava o vulcao; ela riscou do mapa a propria ilha onde a montanha estava situada. Nao por acaso, o nome Krakatoa tornou-se sinonimo de catastrofe. Diferentemente das narrativas classicas sobre desastres naturais, Winchester nao se interessa apenas pela pirotecnia da explosao. Ele vai muito mais alem, recriando todo o contexto da Indonesia do final do seculo XIX e situando cada uma das descobertas cientificas que ajudaram a compreender a genese e a erupcao dos vulcoes, aliando detalhes historicos de grande rigor a um notavel talento de contador de historias.
