Overview

Convertido en emperador de Brasil a los veintitrés años, Pedro I marcó con su huella la historia de dos continentes. Desmedido y contradictorio, las mujeres fueron su salvación y su perdición: mientras su esposa, la virtuosa Leopoldina de Austria, lo llevó a la cumbre, su amante, la ardiente Domitila de Castro, lo arrastró a la decadencia. Cuando el inmenso Brasil se le hizo pequeño y el poder dejó de interesarle, puso su vida en juego por aquello que creía justo. Y alcanzó la gloria.
Con la belleza exuberante del trópico como telón de fondo, Javier Moro narra con pasión por el detalle la prodigiosa epopeya del nacimiento del mayor país de Sudamérica.

Me gusto mucho este libro por ser facil de leer, la historia me fascino especialmente por ser cierta. Me gusta mucho como el escrito viaja entre 2 continentes sintiendo que estas alli. Da mucha vida a sus personajes que te pone en los momentos de esa epoca. Es tambien una buena forma de conocer la historia de Brasil. Este es el segundo libro que leo de este escritor y me gusta mucho la organizacion de sus textos y como desarrolla las historias.

El Imperio eres tú by Javier Moro - Spanish Edition This is the story of Brazil's birth. The book opens with the landing by Pedro Álvarez Cabral on Brazil on April 22, 1500. Then it jumps on the second chapter to 1816, where we meet a 16 y/o Pedro de Braganza y Borbón. Born in Lisbon, Pedro I was the fourth child of King Dom Juan VI of Portugal and Queen Carlota Joaquina, and thus a member of the House of Braganza. When their country was invaded by Napoleon's French troops in 1807, Juan VI and his family fled to Portugal's largest and wealthiest colony, Brazil. As it turned out, this was a very wise move, since Juan VI was able to safeguard all of his money and possessions. According to Napoleon, Juan VI was the only king who he was unable to conquer. Pedro's character was marked by an energetic drive that bordered on hyperactivity. He was impetuous with a tendency to be domineering and short-tempered. Easily bored or distracted, in his personal life he entertained himself with dalliances with women in addition to his hunting and equestrian activities. His earliest known lasting affair was with a French dancer called Noémi Thierry, who had a stillborn child by him. Pedro's father, who had ascended the throne as Juan VI, sent Thierry away to avoid jeopardizing the prince's betrothal to Archduchess Leopoldina, daughter of Emperor Fernando of Austria. The book is very tedious and relates with importune details the life of the Emperor; his affairs with Domitila Castro at the expense of don Pedro's marriage with Leopoldina; the court battles between Carlota Joaquina and Juan VI, and the battle for Brazil's independence. The book ends with the death of Pedro I from Tuberculosis on September 24, 1834. Unfortunately, the reading is very tedious. The writer stresses too much the personal life and feelings of the main characters and is full of inconsequential details which are boring. The book should have been edited to about half of the 548 pages. The writer keeps quoting the royal families personal feelings - about once in every ten sentences - rather than writing about them. Most readers, like me, hate quotations and prefer to hear what the writer has to tell.... The author uses the word etcetera about once in every four pages, rather than telling us what we should know about the lists he's creating. He tries to get away with the universal point of view, changing to points of view from each of the character without any warning - thus confusing the reader and making the prose even more confusing and boring. In short, rather than creating an interesting historical fiction piece, we end up with a boring fictional history book. I recommend you skip the book and go straight to the history texts....
