    Location Nº 1. EXT. GATTACA Location: MADRID EXT. Museo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (Alcobendas) The National Museum of Science and Technology has an extension of about 1500 m2.

What Andrea fantasizes while comforting Gloria is in my opinion the most shocking image in this novel. “Me sentí hambrienta como nunca lo he estado. Allí …Algo así como una locura se posesionó de mi bestialidad al sentir tan cerca el latido de aquel cuello de Gloria, que hablaba y hablaba. Ganas de morder en la carne palpitante, masticar. Tragar la buena sangre tibia”. (132) Although this scene

    In life, people are to do what they want of their lives. And, by doing that, they fall into a process where they start being part of distinct social groups that are likely to change or guide their way of thinking. That is to say, even a person, being part of a general community, tends to relate with diverse micro-societies that share common similitudes: opinions; dress codes; religion; academic background, or even a way of talking (jargon).

But even that information was frequently modified within the generational transmission process that made it reach us today." Although the origins are difficult to trace, today fado is commonly regarded as simply a
