Tras el suicidio de su mejor amigo, Manuel se ve acosado por la sombra de la enfermedad mental de aquel, por su mundo de violencia y por la tortuosa relación sentimental con su novia, que fue inicialmente pareja de Gregorio, el amigo muerto; citas no cumplidas, extraños mensajes y la sombra de un policía que aparece como vengador de una infidelidad que lo llevó a la locura. Escrita con la agilidad de un guión cinematográfico y con un fondo de personajes urbanos que se mueven en los márgenes de la delincuencia, esta novela confirma a su autor como uno de los mejores escritores mexicanos de las últimas generaciones. Con tono existencial que da cuenta de los aspectos más crudos de la sociedad de nuestro tiempo, esta obra de suspenso trae personajes bien construidos, atractivos y que se ven inmersos en una atmósfera cercana tanto a la novela macabra como a la prosa de Franz Kafka.

Listener Opinions

    " Surprisingly picked up and became a decent novel in the last 100 pages. The first 150, however, were a drag and a bore. Whether by some fault of the translation or the author, the book makes you feel disconnected from every single character. It takes far too long for the story to unfold. "

    " It's sad and a little messed up, but it presents a side of craziness that I had never considered. "

    " still nothing yet, besides how to mimic an schizo "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy Sierra | 1/12/2014

    " I read this because the Mars Volta did the soundtrack for the movie...and honestly I think that's the only reason why I thought it was so good. "

    " Great story! What else can you expect from the guy who wrote the scripts of 21 grams, Amores Perros and Babel? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 8/6/2013

    " Stupendo, i personaggi e le loro turbate menti sono delineati magistralmente. Il libro per tutti quelli che hanno perso un amico. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 8/13/2012

    " excellent visual descriptions, unpredictable story line "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Koonu | 4/2/2012

    " Bildungsroman y telenovela embrujada de locura. A veces aburrido pero siempre interesante con un final mas o menos satisfactorio. (Por que las mujeres que amamos llegan a conocer lugares tan ajenos a nosotros?) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/10/2011

    " Slightly mysterious and intriguing. The main character is some one you like, hate, relate to and dont understand all at the same time. The author is someone who I would love to read more from. I have enjoyed all the films based upon his works (Babel, Amores Perros and 21 Grams) "

    " This is the only book I have read by Arriaga. It is as depressing as his movie scripts, but also really well written. I thought it was a great look into what happens after someone commits suicide. "

    " Una excelente historia, muy bien narrada, aunque a veces abusa de recursos cinematográficos. Aún así, espero que la película próxima a estrenarse (Agosto 17) no defraude a los lectores. Arriaga es un excelente escritor además de guionista. "

    " this book was originally written in spanish. it is a nice translation and has some powerful imagery, nice quotes and philosophical perspectives. "
