"Son de Mar" is a love story about shipwrecks and returns. The main character, Ulises Adsuara, who disappeared ten years ago, is found floating on the beach dressed as a groom. A few hours later, his widow, Martina, appears dressed as a bride almost in the same place. From that moment, the author rewinds the story to the time the couple met, when Ulises was a literature teacher, and Martina, a daydreaming waitress at her fathers bar. The tedium takes a toll on their marriage. He wants to be a real sailor, tired of all the Greek classics. She expected something else of married life. One day Ulises disappears, and no sign of his body is found. Martina marries with an important local businessman. She apparently is happy with her new life until the day her first husband appears in the middle of a big party at her new house. The renew their relationship until events lead to the finding of both corpses that opens the novel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Son De Mar/the Song of the Sea?

Tiene sus momentos  Nov 28, 2003
No es una gran historia, tiene buenos momentos y pero tiene partes que son realmente tediosas, un hombre deja a su mujer embarazada y se larga por 20 años, regresapor que se da cuenta que aún ama a su mujer, pero esta ya se ha casado con otro hombre, en fin, se hacen amantes y por supuesto no hay final feliz.
Si tienes duda renta la película y te darás una buena idea de lo que trata.
So-so son  Jan 18, 2003
Ni fu ni fa. La historia de un joven profesor que se enamora, desenamora, desaparece y años después reaparece en una playa, ahogado. Resulta que después de todo sí estaba enamorado de su mujer. Concepto trillado e inocuo.
amor o aroma  May 17, 2001
Un libro maravilloso, irónico, original, muy poético. Me gustó mucho, aunque creo que no llega a 100 años de soledad, ni lo pretende. También me llamó la atención el hecho que el amor es tan ciego, intercambiable, las ganas que tenemos de vivirlo y encontrarlo superan nuestros instintos: si es Ulises o no lo es, en el fondo no importa tanto. Importan las primaveras con sus aromas que vuelven siempre para volvernos locos de deseo.
La mejor novela que he leido  Jul 2, 2000
Un vivido e intenso relato que me hizo sentir presente dentro de la historia. Magnifica prosa hecha facil para el lector con maestria. Espero impacientemente la proxima novela de Vincent.
