Reviews - What do customers think about La voz dormida (The Dormant Voice)?

La indigerible crueldad humana  Mar 21, 2007
Dicen que la Guerra Civil Española la perdio la Republica pero que la historia la perdio el franquismo. Prueba de ello son novelas como "La voz dormida" de la escritora Dulce Chacon, quien durante años se dedico a recopilar historias de mujeres que padecieron el regimen de Franco, para luego escribir esta historia en clave de ficcion sobre un puñado de presidiarias que aun terminada la guerra y decretada el fin de la Republica, fueron perseguidas y tratadas despiadadamente por el regimen franquista como enemigas de la Nacion.
Algunas de las protagonistas de esta historia son condenadas a muerte pero otras logran sobrevivir para echar el cuento, esa sera su unica redencion.
Chacon, quien murio pocos años despues de publicada La voz dormida(2002), endulza la novela con una historia de amor con final feliz y un poco de melodrama digno del mejor cine de barrio español, quizas como metodo para que el lector sea capaz de digerir la indigerible crueldad humana.
