Reviews - What do customers think about El vuelo de la reina?

Retrato de una obsesión  Jul 5, 2003
Merecedora del premio Alfaguara de novela 2002, El vuelo de la reina del escritor argentino Tomás Eloy Martínez, es sin duda una de las mejores novelas publicadas en los últimos tiempos. Es la historia de una obsesión, la de G.C. Camargo, poderoso director de un importante diario bonarense; por Reina Remis, joven periodista que se inicia bajo su tutela. Corren tiempos turbios, donde la ilegalidad, la corrupción, los abusos de poder sirven como telón de fondo para esta pasión obsesiva que corroe las entrañas del viejo periodista, que le hace perder todo tipo de sensibilidad que no sea aquella que lo conduzca al completo dominio de la independiente Reina. La familia deja de existir, el trabajo sólo vale como medio para un fin, humillar y someter a una pasión que deja de ser correspondida. Excelente retrato sicológico donde los escrúpulos se pierden, los protagonistas dejan de ser heróes y puede que el mal triunfe al final.

However, when her curiosity is satisfied, she sees that her way out of the relationship will not be an easy one...

A mix between hitckcock's hear window and Carlos Heitor Cony's " A casa do Poeta Trágico".
