Martin Santomé, viudo con tres hijos en vísperas de su jubilación, comienza a registrar en un diario íntimo su vida gris y sin relieve. La vida cotidiana de la rutina oficinesca y la de un hogar desunido y crispado se verán alteradas cierto día, cuando irrumpe en su opaca existencia la joven Laura Avellaneda, nueva empleadaa sus órdenes. Y ese cincuentón, hombre mediano pero no mediocre, consciente de sus límites y su desgana, decide abrir, casí sin proponérselo, un paréntesis luminoso.

    " The style is like its narrator and protagonist: dry and minimalist. One of the best existentialist novels I have ever read. "

    " I've read this book at least 3 times over the past 14 yrs and I adore it each time more and more. The prose, storyline and character development are all so creatively written. "

    " my first benedetti book...though I love his poetry. Aside from the fact that he's retiring at 50 (estos funcionarios!), very clear and thoughtful narrative, a la Delibes, one of my favorite authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricardo Perez | 2/9/2010

    " Triste, melancólica y buena en su momento. La Tregua nos invita a buscar un poco a esas heroínas literarias cuyo gran mérito es sólo estar con el protagonista, al estilo de la Maga de Cortázar, Laura Avellaneda se hace presente para grabarse en la memoria. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bruno | 12/21/2009

    " Benedetti is one of my favorite writers but I did not like this book. It's very similar to Sartre's Nausea and it's not my favorite type of book. Too depressing. It's best to enjoy Benedetti in poems. that was his strength. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susana | 10/26/2009

    " This is a must read book. It's pretty small (as in, not many pages) but so extremely powerful it stays with you forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fernanda | 9/5/2009

    " La tregua entre Benedetti y Dios. Un excelente diario. Todas las emociones contenidas, gran pluma que narra. Estos y otros elementos de literatura que la hacen imprescindible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mateo | 1/12/2009

    " Mario Benedetti nunca me convenció como poeta...

    Yo creo que la gran poesía es apolitica, pero sin dudar es un importante narrador, la tregua es un buen ejemplo de ejecución literaria, una de las primeras novelas en forma de diario que leí. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/8/2008

    " Lo lei en espanol y a lo mejor no capte bien todo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rodrigo | 12/21/2007

    " This is maybe my favorite southamerican author. For my friends that are learning spanish, please read it in spanish. kinda sad, but beautifully written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Atenas | 8/10/2007

    " El único libro que me ha hecho llorar en toda mi vida, es muy bueno, uno literalmente puede leer el dolor de Santomé, uno puede sentir el dolor del hombre, uno entiende todo lo que siente, esta muuy muy muy cabrón, pero muy muy muy bueno, también se la rifa. "
