    One thought on “La novela de Perón”

    1. What does the average North American know about Argentina in the Twentieth Century? It was all about Evita ("Don't cry for me Argentina!") with her shadowy husband Juan Domingo Peron lurking somewhere in the background.Tomás Eloy Martínez wrote two novels which kind of sort of danced around Evita. One (Santa Evita) was about the travels of her embalmed body after death. The other, The Peron Novel, dealt primarily with Peron before he met Evita, then skips forward to his return to Argentina aft [...]

    2. The date is June 20, 1973, and Peron is returning to Argentina after 18 years in exile in Madrid, Spain, returning as newly-elected president.The varying perspectives kept this novel from reading easily, but it was an effective method as it mimics the elusiveness of fact versus fiction, even alluded to in the title. All action takes place over the course of one day w/ flashbacks into the history of the characters and the moment when their lives interlocked w/ Peron.Told in the 3rd person, the st [...]

    3. La verdad que este libro no me gustó nada. Lo compré con mucha expectativa, porque me gusta el género que se ha dado en llamar "novela histórica", y también había escuchado el renombre del recientemente fallecido Tomás Eloy Martínez. Pero fue una decepción. Sobre todo las cosas que cuenta sobre Evita, que la plantea casi como una pobre demente sin el menor sentido de la realidad. O sea, se puede jugar con los personajes, pero en todo caso no me gustó en la forma en la que juega esta au [...]

    4. Es unA novela histórica simplemente. La lei sin esperar más que eso. De esa forma me pareció aceptable. Hay que tener en cuenta que es uno de los personajes más polémicos de la historía latinoamericana. Y el fenómeno del Perónismo es absolutamente singular. Recomendable.

    5. Started out quite slowly, picked up pace, so that I didn't want to put it down, and then kind of petered out in the end.

    6. Tomas Eloy Martinez is a great writer and this book is no exception to that. Peron just isn't as interesting as his wife, Evita, and this book focuses on the general's return to Argentina in 1973 when he was way past his prime and arguably senile. It does outline his upbringing and gives you a good picture of his character and his development as a political thinker. A military moralist, I find this kind of political view scary and insipidly banal. Having said that, Peron was a visionary of sorts [...]

    7. El 20 de junio de 1973, Juan Domingo Per�n regresa a la Argentina tras un largo exilio. En Madrid deja a�os de desprecio por parte del r�gimen de Franco y el recuerdo de una triunfal Eva Per�n cuyo cad�ver momificado descansa en su propia casa. Lo espera la mayor multitud jam�s congregada, mientras sus seguidores luchan encarnizadamente por apoderarse del s�mbolo que a�n representa el anciano general. En esta novela llena de acci�n, Tom�s Eloy Mart�nez resume la historia ar [...]

    8. Phew, this took me MONTHS to get through.Very hard to rate/review because, it was excellent, but very complex. It was certainly NOT a page-turner. I'd get exhausted at night after ten pages. And then when I was getting comfortable with the flow, it'd jump to a whole new persons perspective which I'd have to try and wrap my head around. I'd sometimes wonder if I'm just not intelligent enough to follow such novels? Then I'd remember I am brilliant, and slog on - if I can't wade my way through such [...]

    9. Fascinante obra de ficción. Todo los personajes eran personas que podia reconocer en el pueblo Argentino hasta el dia de hoy. O sea los personajes podran haber sido gente historica pero tambien tenian su contraparte en el dia a dia de la gente. Siempre interesante, siempre sorprendiendo, el libro te pasea por todas las emociones. Para el lector que no conoce a la Argentina y sus idiosincrasias, quizas no le llame tanto la atencion, pero personalmente me encanto.

    10. THis was pretty much my introduction to the Latin American literary tradition and it did not disappoint. Martinez somehow converges at least 15 plots very effectively around a single point and it works-- incredibly well. I would recommend this book (and certainly have) without question to anyone at all interested in Latin American literature.

    11. Rarely do I not complete a novel, but I made an exception for this one. Whenever I visit a foreign country, I read the popular fiction of that country. Regardless of my desire to read Argentinian novels, I found this book to be confusing, hard to follow, and lacking excitement and/or meaning.

    12. This should be changed to the date i didn't read this book. I gave up on it -- something i rarely do - but i really hated it. there are so many better books waiting to be read out there.

    13. Peron isn't as interesting as his famous/infamous wife Evita. Still, the book was well-written and had the ring of truth about it.

    14. Para realmente disfrutar de esta novela es necesario ser familiarizado con la historia argentina del siglo XX, especialmente con los nombres de personas con poder de este tiempo.
