Item description for La Montana Magica (Pocket Edhasa; 8) by Thomas Mann...

La accin de esta novela transcurre en un sanatorio de tuberculosos de Zauberberg, donde coinciden dos primos de caracteres muy distintos. s esta una novela de detalles ms que de trama: el conocimiento de Claudia Chauchat o de una pareja de peculiares y enfrentados pensadores, los pequeos conflictos generados por la convivencia, el goteo constante de fallecimientos... El inters de la novela reside en la perfecta reproduccin de la vida interior, afectiva e intelectual, de la amplia galera de personajes que despliega Mann ante los ojos del lector, todos ellos perfectamente individualizados e interesantes por s mismo. "La montaa mgica" se cuenta entre las diez mejores obras literarias del siglo XX.

A hospital of tuberculosis patients in the mountains is the place chosen by the author to reflect the events that had a great effect on the first-quarter century European society. The characters synthesize the social trends and contradictions of that period.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Montana Magica (Pocket Edhasa; 8)?

The best one.  May 18, 2007
La Montana Magica is a book that everybody interested in literature should read. I enjoy the characters and their profound psychology.
I recommend this book definitely.
A European "Bélle Epoque"Encyclopedia  Nov 18, 2003
This novel works like a huge and beautiful testimony of the years before the Great War in Europe. It transcends the limits of the genre and becomes a great Encyclopedia full of fascinating characters, archetypes and allegories. The intelectual battle between Naphta and Settembrini (the religious and social view between the liberal and individualistic perspective) is, maybe, the most perfect chronicle of a philosophical and political controversy that hasn't end yet.
At the end we all scream with the chilling scene of the duel and cry with Hans Castorp`s fate.
