Reviews - What do customers think about Te Di La Vida Entera / I Gave You My Whole Life (Novela (Booket Numbered))?

Mal gusto vs. literatura  Mar 25, 2006
La autora parece regodearse en reforzar ciertos estereotipos, en un desesperado intento por buscar lectores. El abuso de groserias y de un lenguaje soez (por lo menos, su nombre hace honor a su estilo) buscan "epatar" al infeliz lector. Las heces fecales, los chorros de esperma, las violaciones anales, y el mal aliento, mezclados con un estilo lleno de ripios, en una historia mal hilvanada que comienza en un sitio y se pierde en recovecos de los que la autora no sabe rescatarla, no son la mejor mezcla para llegar a conseguir una buena obra literaria.

Y conste que no soy un lector puritano. Escenas mas fuertes describen Genet o Sade, pero lo hacen con un manejo del estilo y la filosofia que ameritan el nombre de Literatura. Este no es el caso de la presente "autora", que no parece haber pasado siquiera un curso elemental de gramatica y redaccion.

Si estan interesados en conocer sobre la realidad cubana, pero con mucho mejor vuelo literario y tramas realmente subyugantes, busquen otras novelas de autores cubanos de la misma generacion que Valdes. Recomiendo "Aprendices de Brujos, de Antonio Orlando Rodriguez, y "El hombre, la hembra y el hambre", de Daina Chaviano.
Misery and fate  Apr 20, 2001
I read this book in April 2001 in my visit to Cuba . I found it interesting . The misery before and after the revolution is well present . But also the strength and the pride of the Cuban people . Following the life and the loves of a woman during her entire life , one can feel that hunger and despair already existed well before Fidel Castro . The only new thing after the Revolution is the lack of liberty . The will of that woman to fight against all the difficulties is well told to us through comical situations , where the Cuban music always plays its role .
Bueno  Mar 3, 2000
Te muestra la realidad cubana, la que muchos desconocen y otros se niegan a aceptar. Es una alerta para mi pais.
Realista  Jan 12, 2000
Aunque la trama de la novela no es muy convincente, la realidad de la vida en Cuba antes, durante y despues del triunfo de la revolucion Castrista a travez de la vida de Cuca Martinez y aquellas personas que se entrelazan con ella. Muy bueno leerlo para aquellos que conocen muy de cerca la verdad que envuelve Cuba, su gente y su regimen.
Poor as propaganda and as literature  Dec 22, 1999
Guillermo Cabrera Infante, the Cuban dissident writer who lives in London, appears to be always present in "Te di la vida entera". Ms Valdes refers to his physical presence in some moments and, above all, Infante is a big influence in her way of writing.

Like Infante, Ms. Valdes hates Castro and the Revolution; like Infante, she makes use of a strong eroticism; like Infante, she likes to tell jokes and to play with the words, in a way which resembles erudiction. Unhappily to us, Ms. Valdes is not as talented as Cabrera Infante. So the literature gives way to an angry panphlet. Remember "Strawberry and Chocolate" to see we can recognize the dignity of the Cuban people even if we are critical of the Cuban regime.
