Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Un hombre regresa al pueblo donde ocurrió un asesinato desconcertante 27 años atrás, con la determinación de descubrir la verdad. Todos parecen estar de acuerdo en que Bayardo San Román, sólo unas horas después de su matrimonio con la bella Angela Vicario, la devuelve por deshonrada a la casa paterna. La atribulada familia fuerza a la novia a revelar el nombre de su primer amante; y los hermanos gemelos de ella anuncian su intención de matar a Santiago Nasar por haber deshonrado a su hermana.

Sin embargo, si todos sabían que se iba a cometer un asesinato, ¿por qué nadie trató de impedirlo? Cuanto más se sabe de este asunto, menos se comprende, y cuando la historia al fin se precipita a su inesperada conclusión, una sociedad entera —no sólo un par de asesinos— está siendo enjuiciada.

Review:

"Exquisitamente desgarradora...muy peculiar y brillantemente concebida...como una novela detectivesca metafísica." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Esta investigación de un asesinato cometido hace años se convierte en una exploración alucinante, una búsqueda a tientas, en la oscuridad que se cierne alrededor de los propósitos humanos, de la verdad que contínuamente se nos escapa." New York Review of Books

Review:

"Brillante...Una pequeña obra maestra...casi podemos percibir, oler y oír este rincón caribeño, tan olvidado del mundo, que nos brinda García Márquez." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Tan impresionante y difícil de olvidar como un intenso condimento; un examen a fondo del juego entre complicidad y fatalidad...de ejecución exquisita." Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"Un tour de force...En una prosa frugal y a la vez preñada de significado, García Márquez nos da no sólo una crónica sino el retrato de un pueblo y de su espíritu colectivo...no sólo de una familia, sino de una cultura entera." Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

A man returns to the town where a baffling murder took place 27 years earlier, determined to get to the bottom of the story. Just hours after marrying the beautiful Angela Vicario, everyone agrees, Bayardo San Roman returned his bride in disgrace to her parents. Her distraught family forced her to name her first lover; and her twin brothers announced their intention to murder Santiago Nasar for dishonoring their sister.

Yet if everyone knew the murder was going to happen, why did no one intervene to stop it? The more that is learned, the less is understood, and as the story races to its inexplicable conclusion, an entire society — not just a pair of murderers — is put on trial. Spanish edition.

Synopsis:

This mysterious and haunting tale of romance and murder begins with the marriage of a man and a woman in love. But when he inexplicably mistreats his beloved on the night of the wedding, he is in turn murdered by her brothers, and readers are left with a strange sense of inevitability and passions gone terribly awry.
