Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With his characteristic technical genius, Mario Vargas Llosa counters two worlds that appear at odds with each other our modern societies and the people that live in total harmony with the natural environment. Steering the reader in a vertiginous journey through the collective mind of the Machiguenga Indians, Vargas Llosa expounds, once again, on one of his obsessions: the role fiction plays in the life of humanity.

Its definately a more uplifting books than say La ciudad y los perros. Llosa alternates narrative voices which keep it from being mundane. Its helps you take a good look at western culture from a different perspective. Its good for Spanish classes, not the usual downer that most of us spanish students are required to read.
