Item description for Instinto de Inez (Biblioteca Carlos Fuentes) (Spanish Edition) by Carlos Fuentes...
Love, like the opera, is beautiful, strange, unbridled, explosive and painful.
Two stories, two couples, two eras, and two passions. One is embodied by Gabriel Atlan-Ferrara, Orchestra Director, and Inez Prada, eminent opera singer. The other alludes to the first encounter between a man and a woman in the history of mankind. These passions break all barriers, to unfold as a story that dates back to prehistory and continues in an endless spiral toward the future.
Blurb in Spanish: Dos historias, dos parejas, dos tiempos y dos pasiones. Una de estas encarna en Gabriel Atlan-Ferrara, director de orquesta, y Inez Prada, una excelsa cantante de opera. La otra remite al primer encuentro de la humanidad entre un hombre y una mujer; esas pasiones rompen con todos los limites para consagrarse en una historia que comenzo en la prehistoria y que continua en una espiral infinita hacia el futuro.
Por un lado, participamos de un desencuentro amoroso que marca para siempre a los protagonistas; por otro, gozamos de la intensidad de la musica de Berlioz, en su obra "La Damnation de Faust". Esta dualidad posee el espejo de dos eras: la de un tiempo remoto y otro por venir, contenidas ambas en los reversos de un mismo sello.
En "Instinto de Inez" reencontramos al Carlos Fuentes de las mejores obras fantasticas. Esta novela lo consagra como el maximo narrador mexicano contemporaneo.

Reviews - What do customers think about Instinto de Inez (Biblioteca Carlos Fuentes) (Spanish Edition)?
Not the best... no lo mejor de Fuentes Dec 18, 2001
I have to start by saying that Fuentes is one of my favourite authors, and I usually enjoy his books, because they immerse me in a parallel world, where nothing is what it seems and yet I recognise everything. Having said that, I also have to say that Instinto de Inez is not one of his greatest works. It is confusing, the characters are very shallow and unbelievable, and the stories seem to have no beginning and no end... which is sometimes good, but it doesn't work in this case.
I also have to say that Fuentes still writes beautifully, he is a virtous writer and his choice of words is exceptional, but all in all, I wouldn't reccommend this book unless you are a true fan; but if you are just getting to know him, please read Aura, magical realism at its best!(...)
Crystal seal Jun 15, 2001
This is a book about remembering. The protagonist is always looking back to the moments in life that changed his perspective. Here is stated the eternal conflict of the innocence of women, which bring us to the anthropological view of the first couple in history. Is it a revenge what women do doing with men? Why are they so difficult to understand? A crystal seal is the connector and symbol of two distant worlds and a third one, the memory of the protagonist. Undoubtly we find a pretty interesting but difficult novel as the new proposal that Carlos Fuentes give us in Instinto de Inez.
