Una descripcion morbosa de la decadencia. La Montana Magica fue la obra que logro para Thomas Mann, el insigne escritor aleman, el Premio Nobel. En esa historia, situada en un sanatorio de tuberculosos en los altos de una montana, el autor creo un increíble microcosmos, reflejo de lo que el consideraba la decadencia de su patria y de toda la civilizacion europea. El protagonista Hans Castorp, una persona promedio, sin ninguna aspiracion a ser heroe, representa al hombre del comun, aislado en un medio donde las cosas suceden pero sin que ninguno de los personajes pueda hacer nada para impedir o para avanzar los hechos. Considerada como una de las grandes novelas de la literatura universal, es una orgullosa adicion para esta serie de audiolibros.

In this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps, a community devoted exclusively to sickness, as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition and irony, sexual tension and intellectual ferment, a book that pulses with life in the midst of death.

    " Hardest book I ever read. Almost never put a book down till I'm finished, but I couldn't stand more that a page or two a day at most, so it took me a couple years to get through this. Ugh. "
