Item description for Pudor/ Prudeness (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Santiago Roncagliolo...

A man who is going to die, a woman who is the recipient of anonymous porn letters, a child who sees corpses, a sex-driven cat, are the main characters of this novel who, as is the case with most families, live together yet are completely alone. This is a novel about our most private thoughts, about the wishes and fears we don't dare confess even to those closest to us. A novel about the secrets we keep to protect us from being hurt, and one that deals with the common thread between families and feelings, and the incapacity to find a middle ground.

Description in Spanish: Intimidad, deseos, temores que no se confiesan ni a los seres ms queridos, secretos que permanecen ocultos por miedo a sentir dolor Una historia triste y srdida, pero tambin una comedia, por la que desfilan personajes que, pese a vivir juntos, estn y se sienten solos Una mirada agridulce a las contradicciones de la familia y de los sentimientos.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pudor/ Prudeness (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura))?

El peor libro   Apr 19, 2008
Es indudable que este libro tan solo se vera en las bibliotecas de lectores mediocres o, que como yo, que lo adquirieron por error. En este libro el autor no logra diferenciar los personajes. Como resultado, el lector es obligado a escuchar constantemente no a los personajes sino los prejuicios banales de Roncagliolo. También, la novela tiene un lenguaje muy pobre y en ocaciones se encuentran errores gramaticales severos. En conclución este libro es un gasto de papel y espácio.
Entretenido  Dec 12, 2007
Una novela simple de leer, entretenida y divertida, donde el autor nos dirige hacia el mundo interno de cada miembro de una familia como la tuya como la mia. Este mundo interno tan diferente de cada ser humano. Vivimos tan cerca a los nuestros y tan lejos a vez, ocultamos tantos miedos a los demas, aun ha nuestra propia familia.
Esta novela ha sido llevada al cine en el 2007.
Very enjoyable  Dec 7, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are well-written and portrayed. The book has a hint of weirdness that makes the book even more entertaining and compelling. This is a very good, quick read and I reccommend this book. I will definately read more of these authors books. The prose is very simple, although the plot is a bit convoluted. For the better. Really good book.
Great novel  Jun 28, 2007
This is my first taste of Santiago Roncagliolo and I must say I will read more of his novels. With a simple writing style, Santiago tells the story of a family, seemingly disconnected from one another, which easily can be any family in many ways. Told with a great humor and typically Peruvian, Pudor brings to light issues that happen everyday in families all over the world. I will also be reading Abril rojo.
Weird but definitely entertaining ...  Jun 13, 2007
... and, very funny at times. Agree with the author that it can be sad also -- one can't help think of one's own family dynamics!
