    El triunfo del amor en un mundo de mentira y muerte

    Nuestro club de lectura recién discutió la novela de Laura Restrepo, Delirio. Otra novela de amor en medio de la horrible realidad del crimen y las apariencias en Hispanoamérica, como lo es El baile de la Victoria de Antonio Skármeta. Esta novela sobre la locura, el mundo de la droga, las clases sociales, el sexo y sus aberraciones, el rol de la mujer, la religión... trata sobre todo del poder del amor y la entrega a la persona amada. La técnica narrativa complica la identidad del autor, a la Cervantes y García Márquez. El estilo imita el de Saramago, aunque no tan bien logrado, lo que un poco aproblema la claridad y comprensión de la obra. Hay mucho dicho y otro tanto insinuado en esta novela. Sospecho que 'el cajón de los secretos' no se vacía del todo. Es, sin embargo, una historia atrevida, fascinante, y reveladora, cuya intriga nos mantine interesados de principio a fin. Y aun después de terminada. Hay que releera, como a toda buena obra literaria.

    El placer de leer en espaƱol

    Este es uno de los libros que hace que el lector experimente el placer de leer en español. Así como la novela picaresca fue lo mejor que produjo el Siglo de Oro español, esta obra de la novela 'sicaresca' hace parte de lo mejor de la narrativa española de hoy.
