Item description for La vida nueva / The New Life (Spanish Edition) by Orhan Pamuk & Rafael Carpintero...

2006 Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk delivers a new novel filled with headlong intensity and mesmerizing prose. Narrator Osman, a university student in Istanbul, lays a spell on the reader with the opening words: "I read a book one day and my whole life was changed." This book, which opens the door to the promise of a new life, affects Osman to the point that he abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family and embarks on a wondrous odyssey.

Description in Spanish: Hasta el inesperado momento en que abri el libro, la vida de Osman se reduca a asistir a clase de Ingeniera y regresar a la casa que comparta con su madre. La lectura y un tiroteo en las calles nevadas de Estambul convirtieron al joven hroe en un viajero nocturno cuya existencia nunca volvi a ser la misma.

Osman recorre un inmenso pas acompaado de una mujer que, por azar, dej el libro sobre la mesa de un caf. Una mujer que ama a otro hombre. El mismo a quien estn buscando, el nico que comprende el poder del libro.

Orhan Pamuk, un autor comparado con Nabokov, Borges o Umberto Eco, nos aporta la creatividad y la visin de un hombre de hoy que vive y escribe en la frontera de dos mundos: Occidente y el Islam.

Reviews - What do customers think about La vida nueva / The New Life (Spanish Edition)?

Decepcionante  Mar 8, 2007
Un libro decepcionante, en términos de lo que esperaba de Pamuk. Había leído algo de sus memorias de Estanbul en una revista literaria y me había encantado. De modo que compré La Vida Nueva, pero no pude avanzar de la tercera página. Personalmente considero este tipo de literatura bastante superado. Más que nada me refiero a la manera de narrar, al estilo escogido, antes que a la aparente intención que tiene Pamuk de dar un mensaje en contra de los fanatismos religiosos y de otros tipos. No quiero pensar que todo lo demás de este autor vaya en este tono, por lo que trataré de insistir con otros títulos suyos, quizá con Rojo. Ya veremos.
