De Peter Handke había leído La mujer zurda y me había agradado la parquedad de su prosa, los silencios que, de alguna manera, reducían al desamparo a los personajes. Sin embargo, en Los avispones Handke cae en un error de muchos escritores jóvenes (debemos recordar que la publicó a los 24 años de edad): se enfoca en una fría «perfección» formal y con ello deja un texto sin sangre, con una trama que se diluye entre parrafadas interminables e imágenes que no alcanzan a cuajar debido a su obstinada ...more

Omdat ik de laatste tijd zo veel plezier had met diverse boeken van Peter Handke, was ik nieuwsgierig naar zijn romandebuut "De wespen".

Primera novela que leo del último ganador del Nobel y me ha parecido difícil de digerir. La trama es muy simple y la mayor parte del texto se dedica a describir las elucubraciones del personaje principal: una persona ciega que recuerda siempre a su hermano. Curiosamente, la muerte del hermano es descrita muy brevemente, como para que el lector, ni la tome en cuenta. Desde el inicio, esta novela no sigue con el estilo convencional de famosos escritores. De hecho, no se conoce el nombre de los ...more
