Carlos Fuentes ´ 7 review

Ana»Carlos Fuentes sorprendió a los críticos con una novela muerte de Artemio eBook #10003 moderna y de enorme solidez narrativa Novela de gran intensidad temática está centrada en la reflexión sobre el México surgido de la Revolución pero también analiza con amargura cuestiones I thought the premise of the story sounded interesting Artemio Cruz no relation to that other guy named Cruz is a corrupt well everything politician soldier man He s on his deathbed now and the story hops around in time to tell his story of each major event of his life back to the present of his deathbed experience The premise is great I love the idea of the bouncing around the storytelling aspectBut the story itself was not always easy to read and by that I mean the way that someone once told me they don t read and they consider James Patterson a hard author to read because he s difficult Fuentes feels difficult to me to read and it may very well be because I am not very well versed in Mexican history and I feel if I understood of the historical context I would have appreciated the story a lot than I did This is my own fault not the fault of the author sBut the reality is it did mean I didn t understand a lot of the story I could understand the corruption and much of the personality and relationships between the characters but there was a distance I felt to the rest of the story that I can t uite put my finger on but I ve been wondering if it s something I m not particularly able to put my finger on when it comes to a lot of the Latin American Boom authors such as some of Gabriel Garc a M ruez s writing and what I ve read by Jorge Luis Borges so far Again I don t blame the authors or the culture because it s my own fault I don t understand the context in which they wrote I expect a lot of the emotional distance I interpret in the reading is because of that context which is lost on me Maybe I ll investigate that and then re read some of these books and authors that didn t affect me as much as I feel they should have
