El estilo de la autora es artistico y bello, pero tambien frio y oscuro, y despues de cada capitulo sientes un poco peor sobre las stiuaciones de los personajes. Over the past few years, I haven't felt like I've had the attention span to read novels, except when visiting Puerto Rico once a year for a week or so. A couple years ago I read and enjoyed Dancing to "Almendra": A Novel on that annual trip, and decided to move from a Cuban story to a Viequense story by the same author.
One aspect of Montero's writing I've noticed envied? To tell this story, she floats among three different male perspectives Over the past few years, I haven't felt like I've had the attention span to read novels, except when visiting Puerto Rico once a year for a week or so.
To tell this story, she floats among three different male perspectives: the main narrator as a young boy and, later, as a late-middle-aged man, and his old mentor-turned-nemesis as a dying man. All seem convincing to me, but then again I'm a chick. I enjoyed the book more as it turned darker and darker, and the ending is darkest still.
It seemed a bit lightweight at first and opened into something startling, which I like, in a sick sort of way. If you're interested in a Vieques novel with a dark little sexual coming-of-age story attached, go for it. But there's a lot going on emotionally with all the characters, if you're willing to follow the non-linear story telling and keep track of how the two different points of view reveal the same past.
