more magical realism than magic Aug. 20 2006

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you buy this book, approach it with the realization that you are reading a novel written in the style of Spanish fiction, not American or British fiction. This book is more closely aligned with Gabriel Garcia Marquez' Hundred Years of Solitude than anything to do with our Peter Pan. It is a novel of great disourse and discursive wanderings on philosophical ideas about death, identity, creativity and more. It should be read slowly. You should know that it will take time, that you can't (or shouldn't) hurry through it. There IS an actual story and plot and things to be revealed, but they are only part of the whole. I enthusiastically recommend this book for anyone with time, patience and the ability to lose him/herself in the long, winding sentences of Spanish fiction.
