Item description for Diana o la cazadora solitaria (Punto de Lectura) by Carlos Fuentes...

The sexual revolution of the sixties: the dream refuses to die. In the life and death of Diana Soren and in her affair with a certain Mexican writer, the attitudes of that time are embodied. Strong yet vulnerable, Diana is as lonely as she is beautiful, and she is part of a pleasure-seeking world in Mexico that barely begins to become aware of the horrors of the war in Vietnam and of the bloody suppression of student protests right there in Mexico portrayed in this novel, now in its fifth printing.

Description in Spanish: Qu pasiones o ideales mueven al se rhumano y lo arrastran hasta su propia muerte? sta parece ser la pregunta que se hace Carlos Fuentes al relflexionar acerca de la vida y la muerte de la actriz Diana Soren: tan solitaria como bella, tan fuerte como vulnerable. una mujer que encierrra en su persona y en el apasionado episodio ertico que vive con un escritor mejicano los ideales de toda una generacin , la de los aos sesenta, cuando las ilusiones de una dcada se resistan a morir.

Reviews - What do customers think about Diana o la cazadora solitaria (Punto de Lectura)?

Personajes planos, gran manejo del idioma  Mar 26, 2000
Carlos Fuentes, es, sin lugar a dudas, uno de los grandes de la literature hispana. Su manejo del idioma es cómodo, preciso, muy mexicano y muy elegante, el manejo del maestro que conoce, domina, y manda con temple, igualito que Manolo Martínez cuando le salía la corrida. Su personalidad es tan fuerte, que quema el papel y escurre en la tinta. Es por eso que este libro me decepcionó tanto. Tanta personalidad, tanta fuerza, y tanta maestría para contar una historia tan pequeña, tan roñoza y tan pentonta. Qué el gran genio literario se enamore de una mujer, (MUJER) qué deje todo por seguirla, qué pierda su gran amor, puede ser el gran tema. Pero el "gran intelectual" en la historia que nos da Fuentes es un hombre a medias, que no resuelve nada. Su Diana no es nadie, no es nada, es Coca Cola diluída, una "starlet" ("wannabe" como dicen los americanos) hueca y sin perfil, cuyo únicos méritos parecen ser el de usar pomadas de sabores en lugares no mencionables en sociedad de damas potosinas y el de ser víctima ingenua de jugadas de la CIA más viejas y gastadas que mi Volvo. Por favor, o cómo diría Diana, pleeease..... es mucho pujar para salir con un chicharito.... Qué desperdicio de talento, señores. Y sin embargo puedo decir que prefiero leer un mal libro en buen español a un buen libro mal escrito.
