Item description for Delirio (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Laura Restrepo...

Aguilar returns home after a short business trip only to find that his wife, Agustina, has gone crazy. Having no idea what could have happened during his absence, and hoping to help her overcome this crisis, he begins to investigate. What he discovers are deep and disturbing facts hidden in the past of the woman he loves. Delirio is a story of love and madness, mysteries and secrets in the midst of the breakdown of Colombian society. Wonderfully constructed, magnificently narrated and brilliantly developed. Description in Spanish: Un hombre regresa a casa despues de un corto viaje de negocios y encuentra que su esposa ha enloquecido completamente. No tiene idea de que le ha podido ocurrir durante los tres dias de su ausencia, y con el fin de ayudarla a salir de la crisis empieza a investigar, solo para descubrir lo poco que sabe sobre las profundas perturbaciones escondidas en el pasado de la mujer que ama. Narrada con talento y emocion, la historia principal de esta novela se fragmenta en otras que se anudan a traves de personajes llenos de matices, y se cierra con un final bello y esperanzador, digno de un libro intenso y hermoso.

Delirio  Apr 9, 2008
The title fits this novel extremely well... Delirio... reading this text really is a dizzying experience.
Liked it. Got it. Did not like th eending, but overall good...
Excelente!!!  Feb 6, 2007
El libro es fantastico!!! Describe muy bien la sociedad Colombiana dentro de una historia muy interesante y bien contada. Una vez comence a leerlo no pude parar hasta terminarlo, me tomo 3 dias leerlo, pero cuando estaba en el trabajo solo queria salir para ir a la casa a terminar de leerlo.
slow start great ending  Jun 23, 2006
it does not seam to be love story.. but at the end make you wish you were loved as much as Aguilar loved Agustina
Conmovedora y muy bien escrita  Jan 8, 2006
Uno de los mejores premios Alfaguara, casi tan buena como Diablo Guardian, de Velasco. La Restrepo nos lleva por los vericuetos de la demencia con maestría y poder de convicción. Una muy agradable sorpresa.
Great and disappointing at the same time  Dec 13, 2005
This book is one of those you pick up knowing how interesting the drama and setting of it is, yet Restrepo's way of writing can be very confusing at times. There is no real sequence and at the end you end up waiting for more, that which it does not deliver after such a long and difficult reading.
