Item description for La Voz Dormida by Dulce Chacon...

Winner of the 2003 Premio de Libreros de Espaa; an award given by booksellers for the best book of the year. A group of women, confined in the prison of Ventas in Madrid, raises the flag of dignity and anger as the only possible weapon to face humiliation, torture and death. La voz dormida is an essential novel since it helps to dive into the role that women played during decisive years in the history of the world.

Description in Spanish: Un grupo de mujeres, encarceladas en la madrilea prisin de Ventas, enarbola la bandera de la dignidad y el coraje como nica arma posible para enfrentarse a la humillacin, la tortura y la muerte.

Pocas novelas podemos calificar como imprescindibles. La voz dormida es una de ellas porque nos ayuda a bucear en el papel que las mujeres jugaron durante unos aos decisivos para la historia de Espaa. Relegadas al mbito domstico, decidieron asumir el protagonismo que la tradicin les negaba para luchar por un mundo ms justo. Unas en la retaguardia y las ms osadas en la vanguardia armada de la guerrilla, donde dejaron la evidencia de su valenta y sacrificio.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Voz Dormida?

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.
