Reviews - What do customers think about No Me Esperen en Abril (Narrativas Hispanicas) (Narrativas Hispanicas)?

Tough is great!  Sep 10, 2005
Esta no es una novela facil de leer; cuesta bastante entrar. Bryce es un escritor que demanda bastante del lector, pero creo que hay pocos novelistas que le dejan tanto, que le dan tanto al lector. "No me esperen en abril" es una historia de amor: de amor no solo entre un hombre y una mujer, pero tambien amor por los amigos, amor por los años y las experiencias que nos forman y definen como entes pensantes y emotivos. Es dificil decir si esta novela es mejor o no que su genial "Un mundo para Julius", pero lo que siempre impresiona de Bryce es su poder de re-inventarse en cada aventura creativa, lo cual ha sido tan bien demostrado en "El huerto de mi amada". Este tipo se mantiene vivo, su pluma aun no se cansa.
Ademas y Todavia  Nov 13, 2003
Unluckily for me, I read ths book before reading Ún mundo para Julius", but I still loved it. This, been the first books of my Bryce Echenique collection I read, made me think why don't we appreciate more this author
The story takes place on Lima (The capital of peru) in the 50s, it is set, thoguh fter Un mundo Para Julius, it starts as the script for a teen soap , but it leads to a beutifully written story about this boy (who reminds me a lot of the main charater pof Una Mano en las cuerdas)
Every self proclame romance book has a girl, and this isnt te exception, but it is different, they do not have a spiritual connection t first, he first sees her looks.. and it grows to something that willl last forever
Bryce echenique makes fun of the political and pop culture of the time, citing songs like Pretend, and the effect it has in the story, which is not small.. Now, it may be a bit difficult to read his book, if you have never been to Peru ( maybe this is the reason why the author doesnt have the same reputation of Mario Varga Llosa), but it is still radable, moreover, it will encourage people to go to this country, or at least learn more about it
the author was an upper-classman, which only reflects on the stories he writes ( he studied at one of the most expensives schools of Lima), but it does not stereotype different classes.. it shows us how different people suffer from money and gives each character their own life something I havent seen in a long time, by the time I read the book
With things like the letters of the two lovers (Manongo Sterne Tovar y de Teresa!!!), it seems as the couple would never rake up, but they do, and it is not a soulful finding of myself, but a simple, non-romantic breakup
I wish i had my book right now, that way i could describe characters like jorge valdeavellano who i fell in love with, or his ethnic friend (el cholo), or just the teacher whose name i dont remember, and i will ban my own head aginst the wall for it, who reminds me of mad-eye moody, before, of course, we found out who he truly was
so, if you want to learn about matalas-callando, and how to survive in a british'like boarding school, or how to grow up of been el mariconcito del santa aria, you need to read this book.. as you go through the pages you will discover that things dont stay the same
if you liked this book you should read:
un mundo para julius, tanats veces pedro, una mano en las cuerdas, etc
Great Book  Sep 8, 2003
This author will make you laugh and cry. It's almost like a continuation of "A World for Julius". It will tell you so much about more than 40 years of peruvian history included in a beautiful love story.
Very good!  Nov 7, 2002
En esta novela (que se desarrolla básicamente en la Lima de los años 50)Bryce hace gala de sus cualidades descriptivas, logrando transportar al lector en el tiempo, ubicándolo en medio de la historia de su protagonista - Manongo Sterne- , ayudandose de referencias políticas, modas musicales y costumbres de los distintos momentos en los que se desarrolla el tema. La lectura es amena y con un lenguaje claro y sencillo, recomendada a todos los lectores de distintas edades.
Muy bueno!  Nov 6, 2002
Bryce Echenique logra recrear aquel ambiente propio de los años 50 en Lima, haciendo uso de la descripcion de las costumbres, hechos politicos y la musica propia de la epoca. La historia del personaje principal -Manongo Sterne- se ve sazonada de hechos y vivencias de los otros personajes, logrando trasladar al lector varias décadas atrás, situándolo en medio de la trama y sintiendo lentamente el trascurrir del tiempo a lo largo de la historia de sus protagonistas.
