Lists with This Book. That got me through the first four chapters, which was all three POV characters at least once. I’m always hesitant to criticize works in translation for leknardo unreadability, because without reading it in the original language I won’t know how much is the fault of the author, and how much the translator. But this was some of the densest, most forbidding prose I’ve ever seen.
Most sentences were actually paragraphs, outside of dialogue. I’m not such a ruthless reader-editor that I insist on single clauses only, but when those paragraphs can be as long as half the page, and loaded with hombrw descriptions and heavy political ideas as well, reading was both confusing and tiring.

Also, many things seem to be deliberately obscured for little or no reason. On being introduced to Ramon, one peros the three POV characters, he meets with a woman that both he and the narrative text call Caridad. He asks if she’s brought along Luis. At this point, I’m thinking ex- wife or former lover, and maybe their child together? But it’s not clarified. After a while, a dead boy is mentioned, Pablo, as Caridad’s son. On the next page, Pablo is referenced again, this time as Ramon’s brother.
Wait, so Caridad, this woman Ramon is speaking to in a cryptic tone about “The Party” and various political intrigues is his mother? Whom he calls by her first name?
Because that’s not at all where I thought this was going. And why exactly did I have to read half the chapter to “discover” this lerros, when the second half of the chapter launches into the story of Ramon’s family and how he became estranged from his mother? That at least did explain the first-name, cold-tone thing, but why couldn’t I have just known she was his mother to begin with? This was already a difficult enough read without the author needlessly withholding important information.
I really wanted to like this book. And yet, once I started reading it, the thought of reading more the next qje was not a happy thought.

That may be because I was reading it in dribs and drabs, and my sense is that this is a book designed to leomardo consumed in extended reading sessions. Whatever the case, once I get into a book and put it down, I’m not very likely to pick it up again.
Desisti ao fim de paginas. Jun 11, Bergemes rated it did not like it. Communists drink blood, you don’t have to repeat it. I couldn’t finish it. Two topics that I enjoy, Spanish civil war and Trotsky. But bogged down in boring detail and wooden prose. Maybe it’s the translation. I tried to get into this book, but just couldn’t. Neither the storyline in Spain, nor the one in Cuba was interesting to me. Maybe at a later date I will give it another shot.
