Simplemente disfruté el estilo Nica con el que Gioconda Belli dibuja a la Sofía. Esta, su personaje principal, mitad gitana y mitad vaya uste a saber, que terminaría, cuando niña perdida en el Diría, un poblado en los alrededores del volcán Monbacho en Nicaragua. La autora me deja ver un poquito de su país a través de esta ventanita de Sofía de los presagios. Algo de brujos, de creencias y supersticiones, de la madre, la de uno, y la tierra. Escrito al estilo rico latinoamericano, esta novela me ...more

Gioconda Belli is one of Nicaragua's most famous and widely-read authors, and Sofia De Los Presagios (Sofía of the Omens) is her atmospheric second novel. As a young child, Sofía is accidentally abandoned by her gypsy parents in the small Nicaraguan village of Diriá, where she is taken in and raised by two members of the community.

hmm, così così. inizia bene, mi è piaciuta molto la prima parte, ma poi si perde un po', specie nel mezzo (recupera alla fine.)

mi è piaciuta molto l'ambientazione tropicale di vulcani, giungle, streghe, presagi, incantesimi e quant'altro, però avrebbe potuto essere un po' più breve, dato che per molte pagine si perde in descrizioni un po' pesantone di Sofia e di come si sente e blah. insomma, quindi per questo gli dò tre stelle, anche se all'inizio volevo dargliene quattro. a volte il ritmo ral

wie auch schon in " die bewohnte frau" erzählt gioconda belli auch in " tochter des vulkans" sehr mitreissend über des schicksal einer jungen selbständigen emanzipierten frau in südamerika. eine sehr emotionale geschichte. gioconda belli ist meiner meinung nach eine der besten autorinnen überhaupt, denn sie schreibt mit einer solchen sprachgewalt, dass einem nichts anderes übrig bleibt, als tief in die geschichte einzutauchen.

Lei a la autora por recomendacion de uno de mis profesores de literatura. Me gusto el estilo directo de escribir pero la historia dio muchas vueltas, no todas necesarias en mi opinion, antea de poder cerrarse.

I read this in German as "Tochter des Vulkans" -
It doesn't seem to be available in English.
