I have been wanting to start reading in Spanish again for ages and it seemed more than fitting to pick an author who comes from the same country I now call my home: Argentina.
Still, this is without doubt a very interesting read and it felt good to read in Spanish again. Below a short description and my thoughts on each of them. In this story a brother and a sister are living in a big and old house in Buenos Aires. This one is without doubt my least favorite story.
I normally like magical realism, but this story was too confusing to be enjoyable. One of my favorites of this bundle. Having lived in BA and taken the same bus many times only improves the reading experience…. This story made me crave chocolate!
Delia makes chocolates and saw her two previous boyfriends die under suspicious circumstances. Mario prefers to ignore the odds and is determined to be her third and only living boyfriend… An interesting enough story for sure.
One of the main characters is a husband who is struggling to coope with the death of his wife, and his friend is trying to help him. One night when they go to a milonga he thinks he sees his dead wife again… Las Puertas Del Cielo turned out to be intriguing and also has a nice reference to the whole milonga culture. The last story is probably the most famous one and is also the story the bundle has been named after. I remember having to read this particular short story back in Uni and I really enjoyed reading it second time around.
Magical realism at its best! The characters live in a big house and there also happens to be a tiger walking around. The movements of the characters are limited by the tiger, but they seem to be used to it… Until someone makes a mistake. You are commenting using your WordPress.
