Reviews - What do customers think about Un dia de colera (Spanish Edition)?

LEFT WONDERING  Oct 2, 2009


I LIKED UN DIA DE COLERA AS MUCH AS ALL THE PEREZ-REVERTE BOOKS I READ. THIS ONE I DID NOT FINISH BECAUSE THERE WEE 14 BLANK PAGES IN THE BOOK. IMAGINE MY DISSAPPOINTMEMT. THE SUPPLIER DID NOT REPLACE THE BOOK AND I STILL EXPECT THEY WILLO.

SO YOU THINK ABOUT IT. A BUM DEAL FGOR ME.

A recreation of heroism and the bestiality of a revolt.  Feb 3, 2009
As if one is seated on a balcony overlooking the Plaza Mayor in Madrid and witnessing, by means of a wide angle lens viewer, the acts of heroism and, too, bestiality of a people fed up with being governed by usurpers and tyrants.
 
Un Dia de Colera  Nov 23, 2008
The author did two things: a homage to the unknown heroes of the civil uprising in Madrid on May 2, 1808 and the description of the events. It is a kind of "24 hours" (TV programme) in writing.

It keeps you tied to the narrative wanting to know the expected results, for the uprising is a well known historical fact.

If you read the book in its original language, Spanish, you will enjoy the elegant and perfect usage of the language as it was used in those days. It is not "Chaucer' like, but the description of mores, uniforms, streets are accurate, as far as I can tell.

Great book. I know the translation to English will be done well. All the other translations of the previous novels were well done.

Thanks for the opportunity to describe a great book
