167 Comment Conversación en La Catedral

  1. Mario Vargas Llosa s third book is a marvelously terrorising romp through Peru of the 50s and 60s and yet all told in a bar called La Cathedral in the space of a few hours over a couple of beers and several packets of cigarettes The narration of the first chapter is particularly confusing with each sentence being associated with a different narrator and timeline with sometimes no contextual help as to where they fit And yet, the reader is carried along on these rapidly moving words as on a white [...]

  2. Fantastic Fan tastic Conversation in the Cathedral was definitely a big work of art, a real masterpiece It was the first book by Llosa that I read after a suggestion by my friend, Moeen and I m now eager to read some of his It was none of a magic realism but yet a pure South American way of story telling, with so many stories happening.The book starts when Santiago Zavala, journalist, meets with his rich father s former chauffeur, Ambrosio, and they go to the bar Cathedral to have some beer and [...]

  3. This is the best novel I ve read in my 45 years of life It is probably due to the fact that being Peruvian makes me feel deeply identified in it I see it as a huge painting about the mentality and feelings of people in Peru and why not of people in many other countries in Latin America and probably around the world since the search of absolute power inevitably leads to corruption everywhere.This is a huge painting and indeed the most memorable intent to reach a Total Novel that I witnessed In a [...]

  4. No s que decir de este libro, no soy muy buena haciendo rese as, y menos cuando los libros son tan buenos como ste que acabo de terminar Vargas Llosa sos un maldito genio y ahora quiero leer todos tus libros.La historia comienza cuando Santiago va a buscar a su perro a la perrera, y all se encuentra con Ambrosio, un viejo conocido que hab a sido chofer de su padre Ambos van a un bar llamado La Catedral y, entre trago y trago, desentierran las historias vividas Historias de vida marcadas por una [...]

  5. I must admit that I got off to a rocky start with Mario Vargas Llosa s Conversation in the Cathedral after a dachshund is brutally clubbed to death in Chapter One and a woman gets drugged and sexually assaulted in Chapter Two by, over, sympathetic characters who don t ever seem quite to grasp the offensiveness of their actions , I was feeling a mite unfriendly toward the novel By Chapter Three, though, I was reluctantly softening my stance, and by Chapter Four I was fully immersed in Vargas Llos [...]

  6. Vargas Llosa, hijo de puta, me la volviste a hacer Cre que ningun libro tuyo pod a ser mejor que La Fiesta del Chivo Y luego 726 paginas y 3 d as sin salir de mi casa Llore, re , sufr , me indigne, me doli el estomago Lo que mas me sorprende es su capacidad de contar una historia con tantos saltos de tiempo y tantos personajes que el inicio sea tan confuso y que luego poco a poco, todo vaya encajando Definitivamente una obra maestra.

  7. If Mario Vargas Llosa, had never written anything else, Conversation in the Cathedral would by rights earn him the Nobel Prize for Literature It is a hefty novel 600 pages or so , but it is worth spending the time reading.The novel is set during the dictatorship of Manuel Odria 1948 1956 The major characters are Santiago Zavala, nicknamed Zavalita, and Ambrosio Pardo The first is the eldest scion of a rich family that is well tied in with the dictator the second, a black former chauffeur for Zav [...]

  8. Conversation in the Cathedral is a story of decline and fall deterioration of family, ultimate ruination of hopes and pursuits The voice, the body are his, but he looks thirty years older The same thin lips, the same flat nose, the same kinky hair But now, in addition, there are purple bags on his eyelids, wrinkles on his neck, a greenish yellow crust on his horse teeth He thinks they used to be so white What a change, what a ruin of a man He s thinner, dirtier, so much older, but that s his big [...]

  9. Vargas Llosa es un conchasumadre Se meti un pa s entero en 800 p ginas Y t dir s, bah, pero si Fitzgerald en el Gran Gatsby se meti a EEUU en menos de 300 p gs Tmr, c llate, carajo Que te peguen un tiro NADA QUE VER Porque al cerrar el libro, a m me da la sensaci n de que la monstruosa complejidad del Per de Odr a de cualquier Per de cualquier pa s solo puede contarse con una estructura como sta, con unas cajas chinas del demonio y una kilometrada semejante Pocas veces una novela me hab a hecho [...]

  10. When ever I come to names such as Liosa , Borges , Cortazar , Fuentes I wish I knew Spanish language, as I m sure works by these authors would have a different aroma and melody in their own tongues Liosa is, for me, one of the greatest story tellers, whose works give me deliciousness in Persian as well, if it s translated by Abdollah Kowsari, for example Mario Bargas Liosa uses a highly sophisticated techniques with a very delicate language in multiple viewpoint, as if I m listening to Sare , my [...]

  11. Termin la lectura de mi regordete ladrillo Qu buena novela Qu bien escrita Detest a muchos personajes, pero eso s lo lo puede hacer un gran escritor que logra envolverte irresistiblemente en su historia y despertar esa emotividad Son los a os 60, en Lima, durante la dictadura de Odr a Aclaro esto, porque bien podr a ser cualquier otro dictador latinoamericano, en alguno de nuestros pa ses que han vivido esta experiencia pol tica y social Los atropellos, la manipulaci n de las masas a trav s de l [...]

  12. I ve started this book several times before and have never been able to get very far But this time I slowly got myself into its rhythm and enjoyed it It certainly does have a lot to say about the search for personal identity in a corrupt world under a corrupt government which oppresses every attempt to proclaim a personal identity In this case it s Peru in the 1950 s, but one gets the sense that it could be aywhere, anytime It s a masterwork of character development and, indeed, an example of wh [...]

  15. A minha primeira leitura de Vargas Llosa Aventurei me em conhecer o Peru Mas este n o foi o livro mais indicado Iria compreende lo melhor se conhecesse a pol tica peruana A obra uma extensa conversa entre Santiago e Ambr sio Dois homens destro ados por uma sociedade opressiva Duas vidas mon tonas e sem prazer Santiago em jovem envolveu no num movimento comunismo, quando preso decide abandonar os seus interesses pol ticos e se torna jornalista Sempre teve uma rela o conflituosa com pai, a medida [...]

  16. Mi relaci n con este libro ha sido de amor odio, a ratos embauc ndome con los relatos del joven Zavalita y sus aventuras en la disidencia pol tica del r gimen Odri sta y a ratos sumergi ndome en el m s profundo letargo de las hisorietas paralelas de Amalia, Trinidad, Trifulcio y el conchesumadre de turno Me ha faltado el canto de un duro para sacar papel y boli y hacerme un croquis temporo espacial de los personajes porque que nadie se equivoque, aqu el narrador no aclara nada, no pardiez que es [...]

  17. I started this book in 1988 when I had time I gave up.I picked it up again in 2008 I m not sure I m happy with that decision.I read a fair amount, and I read some reviews I don t know if I ve ever read a novel where I felt that reviewers were so systematically full of shit Further, I ve plugged people for their ideas about this novel, and found their opinions sorely lacking I think a lot of them faked it I didn t Here s what I think.Yes, there is a set of interesting storylines here.Yes, there [...]

  18. This is a big, well structured book that reflects the 1950 s of Vargas Llosa s native Peru The title actually refers to a conversation betweean two main characters, Santiago and Ambosio and how their lives are intertwined in the power and politics of the day Santiago, son a of a powerful family throws everything away to become a journalist His stance stirs up issues in his family while, Ambrosio is a dark skinned poor man who works as a driver for two rival men Stir in the dictatorship, politics [...]

  19. La conversaci n entre Zabalita y el zambo Ambrosio en un bar de mala muerte llamado La Catedral es el argumento de esta novela La novela es el fondo de ese di logo, lo que emerge en ese encuentro A partir de esta premisa cuesta prever que se viene en esas 736 p ginas Desde el punto de vista de su estructura, es perfecta Vargas Llosa va narrando y intercalando no solo distintos personajes, sino que tiempos Saltando de personajes y situaciones incluso en un mismo p rrafo Claramente en un principio [...]

  20. Ninguna otra novela me ha dado tanto trabajo por eso, si tuviera que salvar del fuego una sola de las que he escrito, salvar a sta MVL 98.La mejor obra que he le do y muy posiblemente que leer No hay m s.

  21. C mo vas a escribir una novela como esta, Mario, qu barbaridad.No seas pendejo metiste un pa s completo en 700 p ginas Nuestro Per.Algunos pueden cuestionar, pueden decir ese webon es puro floro, todo ficci n, efectismo, pero yo te creo Mario, yo te creo Putamadre c mo no te voy a creer si reconozco a mis t os en la novela, reconozco a mis amigos, reconozco a mis padres Y haciendo cosas horribles, Mario, siendo horribles los reconozco, siendo mezquinos y cag ndola, siendo v ctimas de su propio p [...]

  22. Mario Vargas Llosa didn t make it easy I read chapters 2 rather disturbing and 3 three times I finally got my bearings by reading another reviewer s review.It doesn t take long to figure out the Cathedral is a bar, but figuring out that Santiago Zavilita also called Skinny by his family and Ambrosio are the speakers takes a bit longer Longer yet is the placing the other characters and getting used to the format The best way to envision the conversation is thinking of a movie with the participant [...]
