Item description for Cambio De Piel/a Change of Skin by Carlos Fuentes...

A road trip takes four people into a mental and metaphorical labyrinth that will end with an unexpected tragic ritual. The world of American myths and the key questions of the European culture converge in this ambitious and successful novel that depicts a Mexican man of this century tormented by doubts about the present, the weight of the past, and fear of the future.

Description in spanish: El Domingo de Ramos de 1965 cuatro personajes inician un viaje hacia Veracruz y se detienen en Cholula, ciudad de las pirmides aztecas. En el laberinto de sus galeras se internarn las dos parejas, como en un descenso a los infiernos, que concluir con una tragedia ritual inesperada.

"Ficcin total" en palabras del propio autor, "Cambio de piel" indaga en el mito del Mxico prehispnico y en el holocausto europeo a travs de la memoria de sus protagonistas para decirnos que, en definitiva, todas las violencias son la misma violencia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cambio De Piel/a Change of Skin?

I recommend other books of the same author.  Nov 25, 2006
I agree with A Reader's opinion. It is ambitious mentioning the past of Indios, Holocaust, etc, but it is to difficult, complicated and symbolic in a way.
Cambio de piel, 1967  Feb 17, 2005
I haven't read this book yet, I just bought it but regarding the review about the "boring pop art and classics" style, I think it is important to notice that maybe this book fits more in the 60's style just because it was written in the 60's, 1967 to be accurate!
A boring mix of pop art and the classics.  Apr 8, 1999
Although this book earned the Seix Barral award, it is poor compared to other works of Fuentes. A failed attempt to make a novel with many significant levels. A lenguage experiment that results awful. It might have been interesting in the sixties, but thirty years later is not worth it. A novel that won't stand the test of times.
