Un libro bastante interesante, su trama es fuerte aunque yo a veces me perdía sobre que personaje estaban narrando, sentí que los sucesos estaban revueltos, recuerdos mezclados con el presente (supongo que al reelerlo le agarrare el hilo a la historioa). Lo que más me gusto es como Luis de Lión decide representar la concepción de indígena, la concepción del indígena visto desde un indígena ordinario. Siento que en la literatura guatemalteca hace falta eso.

Mi libro favorito del 2013. El rapto de la Virgen de la Concepción a manos de un indígena. Un relato transgresor escrito con un lenguaje sugerente y, a la vez, agresivo. En San Juan el Obispo debieran erigirle un monumento a Luis de Lión.

El tiempo es cíclico en Xibalbá. Todo pasa al mismo tiempo y no, la gran cuenta temporal maya está presente en el texto a tal punto que puede leerse de forma libre, sin orden establecido. Es un libro corto, pero complejo, está empapado del Popol Vuh en su forma y en la construcción de sus protagonistas. Uno de mis libros guatemaltecos preferidos.
