Reviews - What do customers think about LA PLAZA DEL DIAMANTE?

Easy to miss, worth reading  Mar 1, 2002
If Catalan, the language in which this novel was written, were a world language like Spanish, Merce Rodoreda would be as famous as Gabriel García Márquez, who called La Plaza del Diamante "the most beautiful novel published in Spain after the Civil War."
Surreal cruel reality  Dec 13, 2001
A very human story, the surreally interpreted world of a woman, through her life. Reminds me of Camus' "Stranger" for athmospheres and coldness of style. Highly rewarding reading.
!Excelente!  Apr 29, 2001
This book is well worth reading. The portrait of Catalunians at the time of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939)is excellent. The ramifications of war on non-participants is examined, particularly on women and children. Although originally written in Catalan, it is studied in Spanish as an exemplary example of Spanish Literature of the 20th Century. Just so you know, it has also been made into a movie with English subtitles, although as usual it is much better to read the novel. Natalia becomes "Colometa" (pigeon/dove)and reverts to Natalia. She finds herself in a controlling relationship...will she find her wings? Pay attention to the imagery of the doves and the diamonds and the constant tracing of images.
Catalan literature classic  Nov 2, 1999
Advise: The book was written in catalan. So, the original title is "La plaça del diamant". It's one of the best of Catalan literature. It's around the story of a woman during the civil war
