A short but fascinating tale of a long-ago murder. Hackl has the ability to suck you into his world, and the characters in this true story are impossible not to be interested in. Hildegart Rodriguez Carballeira was a child prodigy, fluent in six languages, a law school graduate at 17, and very active in the sexual revolution and the socialist movement, producing a prodigious output of articles and corresponding with great minds of the day, including H.G. Wells. Who knows how far she may have gon ...more

Dies ist das erste Mal dass ich den Autor freiwillig lese, denn da er aus meiner Heimatstadt stammt, wurden wir in der Schule zwangsverpflichtet. Ich finde nicht, dass es sich wirklich gelohnt hat.

Aurora Rodriguez tötet ihre Tochter Hildegart. Der Roman sollte eigentlich die Motive und Hintergründe der Tat klären - tut er aber nicht wirklich. Sehr genau aber manchmal auch etwas lähmend werden das geschichtliche und politischen Umfeld der beiden Frauen in Gallizien und später in Madrid nach dem e

Aurora Rodriguez erschießt im Juni 1933 ihre 18jährige Tochter Hildegart.
Aurora, erzogen von einer lieblosen Mutter, deren Hauptaugenmerk auf Äußerlichkeiten gerichtet ist, wird von ihrem Vater, der mehr in seinen Ideologien lebt als in der realen Welt, sensibilisiert für die Ungerechtigkeiten die den Armen, den Arbeitern, den Frauen widerfahren. Sie ist wissensdurstig, eignet sich selbständig Wissen an in der Bibliothek ihres Vaters und will nichts weniger als die Welt zum Bessern ändern. Doch

This is a truly strange book. You know from the very first sentence that the book tells the story of how Aurora Rodriguez came to murder her daughter and protege, Hildegart. The prose is matter-of-fact, though it was translated from German, so the style could be influenced by the translator. At 115 pages, it was a quick read.

A história é interessante.

Das ideias que me foram ocorrendo durante a leitura do livro, destaco a intenção de uma das personagens principais (Aurora). A sua intenção é movida por o amor à dignidade humana. No entanto, não se pode deixar de atentar sobre o facto de a intenção de Aurora cercar-se de um amor, que não somente natural, é omnisciente, o que leva ao extremo e insensatez. Não obstante, é um amor politicamente contraditório, pois se é a favor do Socialismo não devia distanciar a sua fil

At once disturbing and gripping. The personality of the title character borders on unfathomable and intriguing in a sort of Lolita Humbert Humbert sort of way. Because her singular goal is so odd and her personality so calculating, you keep reading just to see what leads her to kill her daughter, what sort of events transpired to create this type of person and what transgressions pushed her to her ultimate act. It's the type of curiosity that fuels the public's obsession with the Amish: a glimps ...more

This is one of K's books and I picked it up looking for something small to read one night. It's an novelisation / case report of a true crime in Spain at the begining part of the century, somewhat dry but an interesting historical perspective.

"Aurora's Motive is an electrifying novel of feminism gone mad, based on the true story of Aurora Rodriquez." Translated from the German by Edna McCown.
