Reviews - What do customers think about Los Misterios De La Habana (Autores Espanoles E Iberoamericanos)?

Brilliant and Innovative!  Sep 27, 2005
Valdes wites with a mastery of language. The novel works in two ways: as a collection of loosely tied together vignettes or as a novel of fractured events/fractured characters. Valdes weaves historical and mythological threads together with lived experience, making the novel highly textured. This is not the Cuba seen through nostalgic eyes, but one that is fleshed out and given life through rich and evocative langauge. Valdes continues to impress me.
An expensive dissapointment  Jan 9, 2005
Compre este libro en un viaje a Miami por que prometia un recuento de las historias y leyendas de la Habana. Habia dejado de leer a Valdes hace tiempo cansado de su falta de creatividad luego de haber escrito "La nada cotidiana" y "Te di la vida entera". En esta ocasion, Valdes nos relata una sarta de historias contadas con un desgano que incluso afecta su conocida ira en contra de la revolucion y su eroticismo. Son historias contadas sin pasion, distorsionadas por su cansacio creativo y que dejan al lector con ganas de dejar el libro sin terminar y pedir que le reembolsen el dinero. Las historias sobre personajes habaneros solo nos dejan con el malsabor de una historia mal contada y llena de fantasias de una escritora que evidentemente escribio este libro con fines de lucros comerciales, sin inspiracion, y carcomida por un cansacio literario que la ha llevado a una mediocridad que se acelera con el paso del tiempo. Su comercialismo se hace descarado cuando hace elogios a Willie Chirino etc. para comprometer al publico de Miami a comprar su basura. Si comparo a la Valdes con el colombiano Fernando Vallejo, quien de forma similar escribe con su odio ontogenico pero con una pasion y erudicion brillantes, la escritora no le llega ni a la cintura.
Decidi escribir mi opinion sobre este libro por que pague $35 por el y todavia me duele haber desperdiciado mi dinero en una escritora que no vale la pena habiendo tantos escritores cubanos con talento y mas respetuosos del lector. La otra opcion que habia en la libreria era una novela de la Valdes sobre los chinos en Cuba la cual me parecio solo un plagio a Cristina Garcia y su "Monkey Hunting".
