Mas alla del caracol (Beyond the Sea Shell)

Overview

Normalmente tendemos a pensar que la muerte es un final. Un final irremediable, impuesto y ante el cual no existe ninguna opción. Sin embargo, en el caso de David, esto solo es un comienzo porque poco después de morir no encuentra el vacío que siempre pensó. Al contrario, solo observa a un anciano que le hace una singular propuesta: le permitirá elegir el camino a seguir más allá de la muerte si es capaz de decirle cuál ha sido el mayor error de toda su vida, ese error del que todos sus demás errores derivan. ...

Al contrario, solo observa a un anciano que le hace una singular propuesta: le permitirá elegir el camino a seguir más allá de la muerte si es capaz de decirle cuál ha sido el mayor error de toda su vida, ese error del que todos sus demás errores derivan. David decide, entonces, narrarle su paso por el mundo, descubriendo poco a poco que en ocasiones nada es lo que parece, ni siquiera la muerte.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this debut novel, David, a man dying at a hospital, is challenged by a stranger (whom David calls Death) to confess the biggest mistake of his life. Once he does, David will be allowed to continue his journey beyond death. David accepts the challenge and narrates his story, starting with his simple yet happy childhood in a fisherman's town in southern Spain. Using marine images—waves, wind, tides, sand—David faces the past as he recounts a family tragedy. In the process of narrating, David realizes that his habit of fleeing rather than facing difficult situations was the wrong thing to do in his search for happiness. This marvelous novel is divided into five parts, each with short chapters that make for a fast read. The author uses direct yet very poetic language. Finalist of the XIII Fernando Lara Prize for Novel 2008, this novel is not only pleasurable reading but also thought-provoking, forcing readers to reflect on their own existence. Recommended for public and academic libraries.—Liliana Wendorff, Univ. of North Carolina Lib., Pembroke
