State of Fate by Cătălin Rojișteanu

“State of Fate” is a novel that can be interpreted as fiction, and equally as a quasi-oneiric experience. It is a multicultural family saga, expanded in the commotion of the magnetism of the new world, created by the world existing in the depths of the self and which happens to touch on the First World War.I wanted and I believe I managed to transmit an acute feeling of continuous cinematographic projection, in order to create a book that can only be read by imagining, which disturbs and rejoices while reading it, with the purpose of creating a sensory approach and a willingly analytical one for expanding an atmosphere unique to each person, of fairytale and introspection at the same time. Since I found a credible storyteller, I ensure you that all the events you are about to read about are real stories.I took the liberty of allowing my characters to choose their path freely, as well as the moment of their introduction or participation. In the absence of another managerial or senatorial act, I thank my heroes for being with me and I wish them a long life, ensured only by the joy of the reader, to whom I bow and thank.Enjoy the show!
