more like a 2 and a half stars, is the first book I Read of José Aguatín, It certainly had some great moments especially in the beginning...after that, I'm not sure what really happen, it really has funny stuff but in moments the same book was losing something, I Felt that it was forced sometimes, especially the last part.

thoughts:

1.- The Political stuff back in the day and right now (2014) allow me to see more about Guerrero (Acapulco) and how still being destroyed despite changes of government

Es extremadamente divertido y refrescante leer a este autor, simplemente por la manera de escribir.

Fresco!
Me pareció un libro breve y ligero bien escrito; con un nivel de acidez agradable y bastante peculiar, a pesar de tener una historia definida y personajes bien construidos pareciera bastante espontaneo; me deja un buen sabor de boca y leeré en un futuro a este autor.

Mientras que es divertido y tiene ese toque que hizo de Ciudades Desiertas un gran libro, Dos Horas de Sol se siente un poco plano: la trama nunca es lo suficientemente clara y las experiencias sexuales se sobreponen a cualquier transformación emocional que los personajes hayan sufrido al final.

This book was a bit weak. I think it took him two hours to write. I like him and I bought the book only because I am a fan of his. However, I could have saved the time to read something else.

José Agustín Ramírez Gómez is a Mexican novelist.

Agustin's first novel, La Tumba (The Tomb) was the brief but provocative story of a Mexican upperclass teen, deemed indecent by the public but gathering praise from older writers. This and his most famous work, De Perfil (Profile view), a fast and detailed view of three days in the main character's life, show stylistic similarities to James Joyce's
