Dr. Tyrrell may be honest and generous, but behind his agreeable green eyes, an opportunist is lurking. He never lets you know what he thinks. The sense that guides his existence is a kind of cynism. Julia Udoku is intelligent, but remains innocent. Her feelings have been dragged along the mud. She has a mission in her life and that mission has been revealed through a misterious and recurrent dream. "Paths” happens in a village without name, where the main characters are born, grow up and make themselves again. Martín González immerse us in Tyrrell’s and Julia’s lives; he makes us familiar with the paths they both walk. Action takes place around a chemist’s shop and a house, but the house is not just that. It is the possibility to find the meaning to their pain and frustration. The novel is dramatic and sometimes, even ironic. Philosophical thoughts are gathered to produce a suspense story.
