Who Killed Palomino Molero? - Mario Vargas Llosa,Alfred Mac Adam

I'm glad I decided to stick with it, even if the MC and his boss are male chauvinist pigs. It's very good.

So, what do you guys think? Should I continue? I think I will, it's only 150 pages.

My first MVL in over a year and this is what I get...

 

It was always like that: she would get mad at his teasing and his sneaky fingers, but deep down she liked it. "There's a little whore in all of them." The thought depressed Lituma.

 

 

Now, I can't figure out if this is the MC's thought, or not. He wasn't the one doing the 'feeling up,' as it were, rather it was his boss. The quotations around the worst bit are confusing me. I think I'll give it a pass anyway as that is sickening.

Ham-Fistedness: "Cinco Esquinas" by Mario Vargas Llosa
Cinco Esquinas (HISPANICA) - Mario Vargas Llosa

(Original Review, 2016-03-05)



I'm really glad that Mario Vargas Llosa's “Cinco Esquinas” wasn't the first of his books that I've read or I'd have abandoned his work forever. An unbidden, recurring image of him hunched over his keyboard, lickerish and drooling, haunted me as I read what were surely his pollution’s nocturnes about the room-temp romps of a pair of married, fabulously wealthy, gorgeous best girlfriends, all the throbbier for the perils posed by the Fujimori regime.

quote 2018-05-07 12:17
Dla liberała "wolność jest tylko jedna, a wolność polityczna i ekonomiczna są nierozdzielne, to awers i rewers jednego medalu". Ale liberalizm to coś więcej niż demokracja i wolny rynek, to "przede wszystkim tolerancja i szacunek dla innych, a zwłaszcza dla tych, którzy myślą inaczej niż my, mają inne obyczaje i wierzą w innego Boga - albo są niewierzący". (s. 333).
