It is a fast read though, aantonio a huge hit abroad — I thought it was just ok. However if I had to recommend a book by him, this would have been “The postman” which is a really good book!
And it was marvelous fun every time I read about a Santiago commonthing to point at the page and go “ohhh, I know that! Apart from that, maybe because of the overall more gritty and hopeless funny that this was much more despondent in character than Dias del Arcoiris!

El Baile De La Victoria : Antonio Skarmeta :
Glielo ha descritto, e donato, un amico carcerato, troppo vecchio per portarlo avanti. From my amateur point of view, the translation seemed good, but I think I would have enjoyed it more in Spanish. The story is extra good, I think, but then I don’t read enough plot driven stuff to be much of an expert on that. Also, what the heck with the chapter endings? There still were light touches of humor and lyricism here and there, but they weren’t really memorable. His wife, who he hasn’t see in five years, refuses to be back with him and he has no money.
La trama gira antohio torno a Victoria Ponce, hija de un profesor asesinado en dictadura como fue el caso de M. First of all, enumeration is, yes, a literary device that bails poetic once, twice, PERHAPS thrice, but no, it stinks the shit out of your book if you enumerate forever at the beginning of every chapter and count that as lyrical description.
Strangely enough, in all my 18 years as an avid reader or more like 15, to be fair to my analphabet babyhood I had never read a book as utterly Chilean as this one. Refresh and try again. The writing is marvelous. A few too many sex scenes, and although young love is involved, some were tender and baioe, yet some of the other descriptions I felt were crude.
You know, one where I recognized the streets, the monuments, the foods, the coloqialities, etcetera. If the book does not meet your expectations that does not mean it is a bad book. I found the occasional dips into stream of consciousness interesting in that I don’t remember seeing that much in the other two books I’ve read, and they were okay and got the message and spirit of the moments across all right, but weren’t anything too special.
Inhe was a member of the jury at the 37th Berlin International Film Festival. However if I had to recommend a book by him, this would have been “The postman” which is a really good book! The safe is big, but your heart is small.

Three quarters of the way I began to like it again, buuut I did not like the ending. Some others have commented on the ending. I finished it only because it was such an easy read and just to get it off my mind. Skarmeta is a nice writer and he uses nice sense of humor at times.
