Condition: UsedAcceptable. Daniel logra combinarlo con la actualidad de la sociedad joven mexicana. Apr 29, Miguel rated it really liked it. Among Strange Victims is, as a whole, an awful book. There are entertaining moments and humorous asides, but basically it is a vacant, irritating story with little content, written in a high-brow academic style that comes across simply as pretentious and full of instantly unlikable characters, men with egos and perversions and a very basic, boring view of the world.
Alone the opening setting says a lot - a boring, bored city man, living alone with his manias in an apartment in Mexico City, doing Among Strange Victims is, as a whole, an awful book. Alone the opening setting says a lot - a boring, bored city man, living alone with his manias in an apartment in Mexico City, doing a job halfheartedly in a an office job that he does without enthusiasm, possessing a negative sarcastic view of the merits of the world. The intellectual style clashes horribly with the boyish obsession with perversions and fetish-like motifs.
Sexual deviations, a fascination with bodily functions, with excrement and masturbation, succeed in creating an urban environment of disgust and ugliness. Rodrigo is a passive, pathetic main character, speaking in self-obsessed first person and letting himself be tricked into marriage to the office secretary because he hasn't the personality to stop it from happening. The image of the woman as restrictive, controlling and, especially, dumb and boring, is very offensive.
Doctora Kay Scarpetta Series
In contrast, the men are all secret perverts longing for an outlet for their grim dirty dreams. By the end of the first narrative, Rodrigo is left staring at a symmetrical crap on his new wife's bedspread, wondering who has done it while he was out in the vacant lot feeding the stray chicken. The switch in perspective doesn't help.
In the third person two more narcissistic males are introduced, crossing generations and not painting men through the last century in a great light. There is a nostalgia as well, as if the modern man has it worse than his predecessors, as if in general life has become worse and less meaningful for more and more people. The stories merge later on, the academic Spaniard hooking up with Rodrigo's mother to allow some oedipal musings, scenes eves dropping on his mother's sexual activities. Throw in a teenage girl purchased from her family and some hallucinogenic drug trips involving the drinking of the girl's urine and you are left with the ridiculous ending, all the worse because it believes it is clever - Rodrigo time travelling to the scene of the crime on the bedspread and realising that he did it himself.
Perhaps there are ways and means to unearth meaning and symbolism from this vulgar tale of macho pride and laziness, but I didn't have the urge or the motivation to dig around and discover it. It's the young writer first book to be released in English in the USA. It's an incredible and very promising first work! An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
He works at a Mexico City museum only so that he can enjoy his free time doing nothing. Usually he goes to park on weekends to watch other people living their lives. After he's accidentally married, he flees to Las Girasoles where he becomes involved in the strange scheme of a professor at the local university, a visiting scholar from Madrid, and a gringo artist who want present art in a new way. Rodrigo finds that his life is changing. Like other Mexican writers, this author likes to use such an extended vocabulary, readers should know that they'll enjoy the book more with a good dictionary nearby.
El juramento (Spanish Edition)
Indeed the whole book could be seen as a homage or parody of Salvage Detectives and This is a funny book that looks sharply at Mexican life and Mexicans' world view of themselves. Readers learn, for example, what Mexicans think of visiting Spaniards and what they think Spaniards think of Mexicans. It also looks at the narcotraficante culture in Mexico and how it effects everyday life. I hope it's the first of many collaborations between this author and his translator. This novel was an absolute delight to read. A second figure removes the wax and places it over a fire, and remolds it. Can the first person recognize the newly presented wax as the same?
Rodrigo concludes that if the first figure cannot determine it is the same piece of wax, then our senses cannot not reveal to us the principle of identity. We can only understand the piece of wax as the same piece of wax if we witness the process of its transformation. Notably, Descartes is both first and second figure--no one conceals and then reveals it to him. The greater part of my time is spent in inertia, and that includes the most crucial decisions, which I take like someone picking a card from a deck held out to him.
I just go on living. A certain will-lessness is a driving theme here, and also what makes Rodrigo immune to moralism: he makes no blame- or praise-worthy choices--he makes no choice at all. Rodrigo is more piece of wax than he is Figure 1 or Figure 2 trying to determine if he is the same at T1 and T2. If he values anything at all beyond his apartment view, his hen and his collection of teabags, it is his own intangibility--his own commitment to not having an identity.
Entretenido, interesante, raro. A manera de broma, alguien en el museo donde trabaja le ha propuesto matrimonio, en su nombre, a Cecilia, la secretaria que le hace la vida imposible This is the strangest book I've ever enjoyed.

Each page more bizarre than the next, with excessively tedious passages, I was unable to stop reading because I had to know how this disarming, sophisticatedly crude story ended. As one of the cover reviewers noted, this is a novel asking how one should cope with the impossible burden of living your own life -- and the graceful riddle of an answer lingers long after the book is finished.
