Reviews - What do customers think about El Tambor de Hojalata?

Excelente libro!  May 12, 2002
Me parece que es un libro increiblemente bien escrito, digno de un genio y que definitivamente vale la pena leer, probablemente las personas que no vivimos la primera y segunda guerra mundial no podamos comprender algunos acontecimientos, pero las impresiones del autor acerca de los hechos son puramente impresionistas, y tomando en cuenta la epoca en que fue escrito es una obra de arte!!
Read it slowly  May 30, 2001
....Reading this book you realise the big distance between "exciting" to "amazing". And I have to say that I have been amazed. This is the first book I ever read of Günter Grass and his style left me speechless. There are (many) paragraphs that I re-read several times, not because of difficulties in understanding, but because of the undescriptable sensation I got. But style is not the only memorable issue here. Seeing the world through Oskar's eyes makes you feel as if you were loking at yourself, being convinced that stupidness became so usual that you cannot distinguish it anymore. Of course you will not like it if you are a fan of, let's say, Michael Crichton... This would be like comparing Beethoven with the Spice Girls!...
que quiere decir?  Jul 21, 2000
Encuento que este es un libro dificil de leer, es muy largo y ademas como que uno no logra identificarse con los personajes y entender la historia. Tal vez es que el libro tiene muchas metaforas y yo no las logre descifrar. Tengo curiosidad por ejemplo en lo que se refiere a las cuatro faldas que usaba la abuela de Oscar, cual es el significado para el. Srea dificil de saber. He tratado de encontrar algunas resenas sobre el libro y no lo he conseguido. Quizas la revision de otro lector me ayude a entender un poco de que se trata.
un libro complicado  Apr 2, 2000
la historia de este libro es un poco increible, un nino de tres anos nos cuenta sus aventuras a traves de su vida desde la prision sanatorio donde se encuentra apegado a su tambor de hojalata y a las memorias que al tocarlo le he podido entender que queria decir el autor con la alegoria. se referia a alemania que no podia crecer? o a algun personaje en particular? el libro le falta claridad y puede hasta llegar a ser canson y aburrido, ya que da muchas vueltas y no sabe uno para donde van las cosas. sus personajes parecen sin vida, frios, y el mismo amorio entre la madre de oscar y jan brosnski parece frio, lejano espero que otro lector llegue al final de la obra y a lo mejor le pueda encontrar el significado que me quede buscando... LUIS MENDEZ.
