    este libro nos da un magnifico vistazo sobre el trafico de drogas y sobre la vida de una mujer mexicana que fue exitosa en ese ambito. El autor nos mantiene en suspenso por la mayor parte del libro

    I definitely liked this book. The way how it's author describe people, places and show us how life is nos static, it moves around, it can change from one minute to another.

    A Raw Reality

    Do you know what it's like to live on the edge, knowing who is capable of killing or hurting, but not knowing when this could happen? Step into the life of Teresa Mendoza in the novel La Reina del Sur by Arturo Perez-Reverte. Here Reverte evokes off the pages of this book the passion, intensity, and danger a woman lives, in the mafia world of drug trafficking. With throat clenching description and the raw reality of what it takes to survive, and thrive.

    Teresa lives in Culiacan, Mexico with her longtime boyfriend El Güero Davila, when she receives a call saying that he is dead. In this world she has become a part of, when you're alone, you're completely alone. This is how she felt at that very moment. El Güero had told her, the day she received that call, she had to run. Practically cheating death after being raped, she escapes the clutches of those who are sent to kill her and with the help of an old friend, departs to Melilla, Spain. In Spain her story unravels to show the measures she took to be a woman at the top, along with the men in this life threatening world. She constructs her own business with her cell mate Patricia moving hashish then cocaine all throughout Spain, incredibly enough earning millions and although illegal, still earning, the power she obtained. Teresa Mendoza earns the title of La Reina del Sur by rising to the top of drug lords in the south of Spain.

    Teresa was an innocent woman in her younger years not completely aware of the life she was leading and how alone she really was until she loses the one man she loves. Her appearance, as they mention quite frequently in the novel, is of a good looking Mexican woman, but not so good looking. She finds the strength and intelligence in herself to make it in life and become something, she would never dream of. I admire this woman a lot, granted that her life and prosperity is based on an illegal business, but in a world of men, being a woman that took control of drug trafficking in the south of Spain, I see as an incredible accomplishment.

    The point of view changes constantly, back and forth, in this novel. Reverte has a peculiar way of writing because half of the story is written in third person, telling the reader about Teresa in her life with more of a present situation feel. The other half is written/ narrated in first person, where the narrator is talking to the people he interviewed to write this novel. It kept me interested and intrigued to learn how it really happened and how these people told her story.

    With encouragement from some people and wisdom from others she encountered along her journey of life, one person who stood out a lot was Patricia O'Farrell. She introduced Teresa who was not a very educated woman, to a world of literature and reading, during her stay in prison. She told Teresa "With books you learn, you educate yourself, travel, dream, imagine, live other lives and multiply yours by a thousand." I love this line and felt the need to mention it because it is completely true; the gift a novel of any kind gives to a person is found only on the pages.

    Keep reading, hopefully not only this novel, which will leave you with your mouth open and constantly turning the page, but read to experience all those things Patricia talks about and more.
