Y el Garoé, ¿qué protagonismo tiene en la historia? Pues se nombra aquí y allá pero no es hasta el final cuando se abre el telón y vemos claramente la función de este tótem casi mágico, cosa que a mí me dejó algo fría. Creo que mi desencanto puede haberse debido a que conozco la historia que hay detrás: supongo que el autor pensaría en un público más amplio que desconociera la leyenda y querría que todos los lectores se preguntaran qué significa Garoé, cuál es su función. Yo pensé que Vázquez - ...more

I always had the impression Alberto Vazquez-Figueroa was not so much into love. And this book about a great love story only came to convince me of that. Throughout the story, all I got was the unshakable feeling that the author was mimicking love, forcing himself to describe something that did not come easy or natural to him and resorting to great speeches and clichés to do it. Too bad, as in the end it did not come right and I much more preferred the women-hating character of La Iguana, than ...more

Hace cuatro años que lo leí y es de esos libros que dejan huella. Recuerdo perfectamente la trama, cosa rara en mi con la memoria que tengo y es claro que el libro me encantó.
Cuenta las andanzas de un militar y una indígena y la reglas no escritas que mantenía su tribu para garantizar su supervivencia.
La trama es estupenda, está fenomenalmente bien escrita y el desenlace final es impredecible, dentro de lo que tipicamente sucede en las novelas rosas.
Un libro para releer sin duda alguna.

Of the six books I read by Alberto Vazquez Figueroa - this one was different. The story is interesting, but the dialogue between the two characters did not impress me. So, I did not enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the other books.
