No sabemos cuando el abandono se convierte en el centro de nuestras vidas. Esta novela lo sabe, todos, en algún punto, lo sabemos, aún sin querer saberlo. Nadie quiere ser abandono, pero todos queremos abandonar.

Hermosa su prosa poética. La recomiendo ampliamente.

Hermosa novela, poético y hermoso lenguaje de pérdidas, de esperas, de silencios, amarguras y abandono. Todas estas sensaciones embargan la vida de una familia separada a ambos lados del Atlántico por el autoexilio del padre hacia Venezuela. Como para relectura -inmediata en mi caso, tan pronto traspasé las últimas ¿sensaciones? ¿postales? ¿imágenes? páginas.

Una de mis mejores lecturas del año; poesía encajonada en prosa. Pasajes oníricos, melancólicos y rabiosos. Adoré la forma en la que Juan Carlos retrata la naturaleza del abandono y otros "traumas": Con personajes frívolos (realistas) y sorprendentemente tiernos. Su voz femenina es imponente, poderosa. No dejé de sentir (sino hasta los últimos fragmentos) la carga erótica y sensual de cada página; y precisamente por eso, el final (a mi parecer) es flojo.


Definitivamente no es un escritor del mont

Siento cada libro de Méndez Guédez como un aporte magnífico para la literatura venezolana. Arena Negra se lee en un día, intentando darle significados a cosas que quizás en un primer momento se vuelven difíciles para ojos menos acostumbrados, y en ese intentar entender es donde se encuentra la magia del texto.
