Ernesto's point of view of this fast changing world. Sep 28, 2006
In this 5 essays book, Sabato let us know his point of viewof reality and how values are getting changed without being analized. Mass media an technology can be helpful but also, has negative implications. The joy of life according to Sabato can be found on simple things but sometimes we have so busy life we are not concern about it. Culture, technology, values, life, mass media, education, government, exploitation and economic issues are discussed in this excellent book. A must read.
nostalgia for a bucolic utopia Apr 5, 2005
From a writer with a progressive reputation, this book was disappointing. Sabato rails humourlessly against modern mass media, showing no conception that tools like the Internet can be put to positive use. We're ponderously told that our present crisis is due to `exploitation of man', as if that's insightful, or specific to our age. He yearns for times past when, supposedly, people `worked at a more human level' and `were freer than the man of today'. In our own hopeless age it's supposedly impossible to transmit values to new generations. Even smallpox eradication is decried as making room for cancer. Reminiscent of William Morris, Sabato looks forward to returning to the Middle Ages (`una nueva Edad Media'), which he thinks would be curative (`sanante'). I'm currently reading Galeano's Patas Arriba, looking for a vision of how to improve the future, not return to an imaginary past.
A different Sabato, not better, not worse Jul 7, 2001
After reading "The Tunnel", the last thing I expected from Sabato was an optimistic and mystical reflection like the one in "La Resistencia". Still, Sabato is in his 80s, and being 22, it seems like I'm a long way behind from the ways of a senior and very wise novelist.
Very entertaining, easy to read, and will give you another dimension of modern life.
But "The Tunnel" is a much better book.
An inspirational urge Dec 7, 2000
Sabato really struck a strong chord with me. Not only was the writing sentimental, which can be expected from an octogenarian, but surprisingly it was also forward-thinking.
When I began couldn't help but expect a book-long rant from an old man saying how much technology and TV were tools of the devil, and that things just weren't how they used to be. Then I noticed that Sabato did not indulge in that sort of easy answer to the obvious-but-overlooked downfalls of the technology age. He clearly wrote of the greatness of our age, and the inevitable weakness that accompanies that success. For many of us who owe our salaries and financial stability to technology, this book speaks like a conscience. It speaks like an open door to someone who gets their cast off today.
Beautiful porten~o Spanish. Straight-forward talk. This is an inspirational book.
Another proof of why he's Ernesto Sabato. Nov 8, 2000
This book is not his best, but even though you can see whatever you look that it has the "mark of Ernesto". Sabato penetrates in this book, as always, into the deepest aspects of human being.
You can take this album as a way of "resiting and surviving"...
