Reviews - What do customers think about Muertos incomodos (Falta lo que Falta) (Spanish Edition)?
Earlier novels better Mar 24, 2006
The Belascoarán series has long been one of my favorites and more or less inaugurated detective fiction in Mexico in a unique form that could be classified as a subgenre. That said, Taibo's earlier novels are much better. As one goes from older to more recent, the plots of the novels suffer, giving way to essentially political tirades that make the reading tedious. The better novels of the series are Cosa Fácil, Algunas Nubes and Amorosos Fantasmas. Another of his great books is Sombra de la Sombra. This latest novel was so far-fetched as to border on the ridiculous.
Spanish Writing At Its Best Mar 6, 2006
This is the different book written in Spanish these days: no biographical notes; no cultural accounts. A novel narrating the story of Hector Belascoaran, an independent detective and Elias Contreras the investigation comissioner for the Frente Zapatista; both of them looking for this Morales a corrupted official. Also double, the authors: two of the best known figures at the Spanish world: Paco Ignacio Taibo-Che Guevara's biographer and Subcomandante Marcos, the leader of a big insurrection at the South of Mexico.
A political-crime fiction showing a funny, witty, satirical writing which goes back to the same own roots of Spanish literature. Ironic due to the serious topic it is about. Chapter 1 by itself is a jewel in this book I reccommend without any reserve. A must read.
