REVIEW Waiting for Columbus

Waiting for Columbus

Usional and has suffered a trauma so severe that he has turned away from reality As he spins the tall tales of adventure and romance of someone who existed in the late fifteenth century the lonely Nurse Consuela can’t help but. TRITECan you imagine One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest meeting Mills and Boon Well it happened in this book This terrible mawkish sentimental story is set in an insane asylum where the nurse falls in love with the patient who if he wasn t insane you would have to conclude is the most extravagant bullshitter on the face of the earthI blame the author It is basically cheating to put a large part of the story into the mouth of a character who is insane because then you can abdicate all responsibility for the fact that it doesn t make any sense It is further cheating to abandon any notion of point of view so that the character telling the story about himself is also telling you things that he could not possibly know like what other characters are thinking Further it is ridiculous to suggest that a SPANISH doctor could not work out from his accent alone that his patient is CANADIAN It is ridiculous to suggest that a female nurse would be swimming naked while her patient watched It is ridiculous to suggest that a psychiatric nurse would be so baffled by all the patient s mumbo jumbo that she begins to attribute some sort of magical powers to him I mean how did he manage to get Federica to make him a cup of coffee every day Wow SpookyPlease I beg you don t read this book if you know ANYTHING about psychiatry Or literature Or for that matter reality Because you will probably hate this book as much as I did

Be enchanted by his spirit Who is Columbus Where did he come from This dazzling story about one man’s painstaking search for truth and loyalty will haunt the reader long after the final page  From the Trade Paperback edition. I DNF d this Got well over halfway through and 90% of what I d read was just the male character telling stories about the various women he slept with in a really creepy way and I was supposed to believe it was these stories that made Consuela fall in love with him Okay And Consuela herself was completely one dimensional and seemed like a female character that could only be written by a male author who doesn t know much about women
