More > està present de manera obsessiva durant tot el llibre, el qual s´acaba convertint en una reflexió constant sobre l´existència, els somnis, l´ésser humà i la mort. La novel·la es presenta en cinquanta capítols molt curts, llençats com si cada un fos una fotografía amb una gran historia dins. L´obra també és un homenatge al grup Manel. Algunes de les seves cançons i dels seus personatges es converteixen en una part important de la historia, com ara "Teresa Rampell", "Ja era fort" o especialment, "Mort d´un heroi romàntic". Potser perquè les influències de l´autor són bàsicament musicals i cinematogràfiques, en resulta un estil àgil, directe, modern i poc pretensiós.< Less
