Una historia magistral acerca del azar, el error y la estupidez humana, que nos da excusas para sobrevivir y al mismo tiempo nos destruye. Olha eu a pensar que ia matar saudades de ler um bom policial e deparo-me com esta coisa Tem crimes?
Tem assassinos? Eu tive muito medo? Ri a bandeiras despregadas. View all 10 comments. View 1 comment. Oye el libro bueno, bueno, bueno, bueno. Es bello por lo poco pretencioso y horrible en la desnudez de la mezquindad humana que devela. Pues toma, para que te acuerdes" y entonces dispara y los hombres que la secundan lanzan una lata de bencina para luego prender fuego. Hermoso, violento, maravilloso. Gracias por el libro, Diego, ya te lo devuelvo.
The most amazing thing about the book is how all these characters get sucked into this vortex of madness, get so intimately involved with it and so close to it that they no longer recognize it as madness but simply experience it as part of the banality of everyday existence.
For example, at one point a prostitute named Blanca suffers a horrific seizure after a botched abortion. Not knowing what to do with her, the other girls drop her into a galvanized tub every morning and drag her outside where she sits paralyzed under a lemon tree. What they ought to do is have Ticho carry her out to the garbage dump one of these nights and leave her there for the dogs to eat Todo ello alrededor de los "negocios" de las hermanas Baladro. Muy recomendable.
Las poquianchis. El autor deja claro al inicio del libro que algunos acontecimientos narrados son reales pero los personajes son imaginarios. Francamente impresionante. Cuando Francamente impresionante. Y es de confianza porque es un corrupto. Vaya paradoja. La siguiente frase dice que al cabo de tres horas estaba muerta. Como si les fuera imposible intuir las probables consecuencias de sus actos. Feb 29, Jorge Alva rated it really liked it. En la muertas vamos a encontrar la historia de la Poquianchis, hermanas que dedicaron su vida a los burdeles.
Tomaron al toro por los cuernos y crecieron tanto que tuvieron la capacidad de influir en las altas esferas de la sociedad. Es grotesco pero a la vez hilarante toda la lucha que llevan a cabo. Una obra maestra de humor negro.
Primeiro livro que li de um autor mexicano e o qual me despertou a curiosidade para experimentar outros autores destas bandas. Though the novel's opening smacks of a typical crime thriller, a violent scene at the end of a soured romance, it soon descends into something far darker.
Serafina Baladro and her sister run a successful brothel business in a small town, so successful that they begin to expand. But when business starts to falter, life in the brothel turns ugly, and slowly, girls start disappearing.
He avoids this by parodising the discourse of the police, and by using witness accounts that provide uncertainty, humour and a Gothic framework, all with a deftness that is hugely impressive.
It took me a while to get into, but once engaged his style became completely captivating. Highly recommended. Miren, es mi escritor favorito, y se sigue consolidando como tal. May 06, Gonzalo Urrutia rated it it was ok Shelves: nonfiction.
Mar 29, Cyn Morales rated it really liked it. Nov 13, Luis Zamarro Fraile rated it really liked it. El relato es escandaloso, aterrador, absurdo y a veces divertido.
I loved this strange hybrid of fiction and reportage from the s, taking as its inspiration the real life case of Mexican serial killing brothel owners Delfina and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez.
Written with a coolly dispassionate tone, the various players in this increasingly bizarre story take their place in the sun, and the twisted activities of fictional brothel owners Serafina and Arcangela Baladro are slowly revealed. It is noted in the introduction that Ibargoengoitia was experimenting with I loved this strange hybrid of fiction and reportage from the s, taking as its inspiration the real life case of Mexican serial killing brothel owners Delfina and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez.
It is noted in the introduction that Ibargoengoitia was experimenting with the fictional form to try and represent the increasing rate of violence and crime in Mexico, and how he influenced other writers such as the great Roberto Bolano.
I thought the non-judgemental, and emotionally removed tone of the book was incredibly effective, and the story was utterly fascinating too, bringing into play the full scope of human transgressions- corruption, jealousy, greed, obsession and murder. Estuvo horrible. May 24, Alejo rated it it was amazing Shelves: mexicali , latinoamericana. Jan 03, Diana rated it it was amazing. El autor desplaza algunos de las cosas que se cuentan del caso para dejar cierta incertidumbre, pero te deja satisfecho.
Apr 04, Marco rated it it was amazing. Una excelente novela. Apr 17, Kary de la Tijera rated it it was amazing. Nov 11, Cintia Vllgs rated it really liked it. Very good, but anyone who, like some reviewers and like Colm Toibin in his introduction, describes this as "hilarious", needs to take a long, hard look at themselves.
