Item description for La Virgen de los Sicarios Our Lady of the Assassins (Spanish edition) (Alfaguara Hispanica) by Fernando Vallejo...

Stranger than fiction. More terrible than a horror movie. Harder to believe than anything presented by Ripley. Medellin was, not so long ago, a provincial capital in the Colombian Andes, a large town of hard-working, conservative, religious folk. The native returns after years away and simply describes what he sees, in the new language of the street, spoken by the teenage hitmen devoted to their mothers and to the Virgin.

Blurb in Spanish:
"Un bello y delirante canto de amor y perdicin" que narra el Medelln de hoy da, el vrtigo de sus calles atestadas de desempleados y mendigos, ladrones y asesinos. Una sociedad en que la impunidad es la norma y la violencia el aire que se respira.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Virgen de los Sicarios Our Lady of the Assassins (Spanish edition) (Alfaguara Hispanica)?

la historia de un angel exterminador  Jul 25, 2005
Leí LA VIRGEN DE LOS SICARIOS, por recomendación, pero sinceramente no me gustó mucho.
Trata sobre la vida en Colombia. El narrador odia a todo el mundo y su compañero es un asesino que elimina a todos los que de una manera u otra "molestan" en la sociedad. Hay relatos violentos y de homesexualidad en practicamente toda la novela. Narra las contradicciones sociales, critica los políticos y la pobreza de los barrios y los "triunfos" de la mafia colombiana. Todo esto envuelto en una gran devoción religiosa, pues los protagonistas se mueven de una parroquia a otra para buscar el silencio y consuelo por los pecados.
Finalmente  Feb 8, 2003
Vallejo describe una Colombia confundida, violenta y al mismo tiempo comica. Este libro me hiso reir Sus anecdotas, su ironias su manera de escribir es ejemplar se lo recomiendo a todo latino americano que se pregunta como vive dia a dia el hombre latinoamericano.
