    One thought on “Lituma en los Andes”

    1. [7/10] A haunting and disturbing story, skillfully presented, but I hold Mr. Llosa to higher standards after including his sprawling, philosophical War Of The End of The World on my favorites list. I learned a lot now about modern Peru, which is why I picked the book up in the first place, but I also had issues with the muddled dialogue, with the slow pace, continually fragmented by flashbacks, and with a perceived bias against the Sendero Luminoso guerilla, who received an extremely harsh treat [...]

    2. This was an excellent story with great characters and captivating narration. Lituma is now stationed in the mountains in Naccos (after being ejected from Piura after Palomino Molera and needs to solve a triple homicide which superficially looks like it may be the work of the Sendero Luminoso terrorists (whom we also gets glimpses at during the book through some of their victims). The pace never lets up and we also are treated to local folklore like in The Storyteller which plays an important par [...]

    3. حكايات وأساطير شعب البيرو يحكيها يوسا في جبال الأنديزصورة للحياة عندما يكون العنف- باختلاف أسبابه وأشكاله- هو السيد والحاكم للواقع سرد متقن وممتع, والحوار مميز بكل أبعاده وموضوعاته

    4. القراءة الأولى لـ ماريو فارغاس يوساالحقيقة أنه من خلال قراءة هذه الرواية ومن الصفحات الأولى أتضح لي مدى جنون هذا الرجل الذي يدعى يوسا وماكنت أسمع عنه ليس إلا القليل،، أن تقرأ له شئ آخر مذاق إسطوري غريب بل يتخطى حاجز الغرابة بل يصل بالقارئ إلى أعماق الأماكن المجهولة اللامعقو [...]

    5. Punitive assignment in the Andes.Brigadier Lituma (who had already met in Who Killed Palomino Molero?) found himself transferred to a lost corn in the Peruvian hinterland, surrounded by ragged, mute and superstitious peons, spending their nights in bars of drunkenness and debauchery, on the site of an improbable road under construction.Nature is magnificent but relentless and oppressive. The days are "furnace" and polar nights.The police station is a hovel and its occupants live there like monks [...]

    6. So now I am really getting a feel for the Peruvian maestro (have had the pleasure to read 5 of his like 20 or so books). "Death in the Andes" is a horror story made comical, like most Latin American tragedies ("Before Night Falls," or "Kiss of the Spider Woman", or more recently, M.V.L.'s "The Feast of the Goat") which persist hard in trying not to be overtly sad. Thematically rich, with tragedy piled atop tragedy, the narrative flow is invigorating, forcing the reader to forget all about airpor [...]

    7. گروهبان لیتوما و معاونش در پاسگاه یک روستای کوهستانی مشغول خدمت هستند . در این روستا 3 نفر ناپدید شده اند و گروهبان پلیس و معاونش در تلاش برای یافتن علت امر هستند . آنها در پی این جست و جو با واقعیت وحشتناکی مواجه می شوند . خرافات و رسوم و سنن دیرینه ای که در دنیای متمدن امروز دوبا [...]

    8. آقای سوپر ماریوی عزیزسلام؛ می‌دانید؟ گاهی وقت‌ها خیلی دوست داشتم یک رفیقی توی یک سرزمینی جایی داشتم. بعد با هم می‌نشستیم و از همان دور برای هم نامه‌های کاغذی می‌نوشتیم. از همان نامه‌قدیمی‌های راست راستکی. می‌نشستیم از در و درخت و زار و زندگی برای هم می‌نوشتیم و برای هم آر [...]

    9. This book doesn't just tell a story. It is told through stories, through storytelling, and this makes all the stories of Peru, even those beyond the confines of the page, one story. Mario Vargas Llosa doesn't give a damn about time or space or traditional plot; he doesn’t care about making the reader comfortable or making reading easy; he cares about connections, and he makes them however he damn well pleases.Death in the Andes follows three stories (for a while). The first follows Corporal Li [...]

    10. Two Peruvian police officers, both outsiders, are stationed in a remote post in the Andes. While they investigate the disappearance of 3 men a terroristic organization operates in the area. In the cold lonely nights, the younger officer (Tomasito) tells the older officer (Lituma) his love story which is how he came to be assigned to this dying mining town. They frequent a bar where the story of its owners weaves in and out.Like Llosa’s Conversation in the Cathedral, the text is hard to follow. [...]

    11. I have enjoyed everything I have read by Vargas Llosa, so I am biased. This was a great read, I didn't want to put it down. I was quite surprised that it had a (relatively) happy ending, considering the whole novel is about the death and destruction brought on by terrorism and corrupt government.****I first read this novel in Spanish in June 2008. Three years later, I am reading it in English, planning to teach it in a freshman seminar, and trying to read it through the eyes of an 18-year-old.Th [...]

    12. يا للرواية!رحلة أخرى في جبال الأنديز مع يوسا تتسم بالدموية والأسطورية إلى حدٍ مابطلنا هنا هو العريف ليتوما، هذا الساحلي الذي رمته الأقدار وحظه الضئيل في جبال الأنديز، ومساعده توماسيتو، هذا الغارق إلى أذنيه في قصة حب مأساوية جعلته يعلق جسده على سفوح الانديز الوعرة ليسقط وجع [...]

    13. يوسا مشغول بانتقاد الفساد السياسي و العسكري على الدوام. في حفلة التيس و مايتا و من قتل خوان بالميرو و بنتاليون و الزائرات. قد لا تكون أكثر رواياته تشويقاً و لكنها على صعيد البنية القصصية و خطوط السرد رواية عملاقة جداً. يتنقل فيها يوسا بكل براعة بين الشخصيات المتفاوتة في جنسيا [...]

    14. The old mingles with the new in Vargas Llosa’s Peru. Human sacrifices and spirits of the mountains, road building, terrucos – uncompromising, ruthless and cruel freedom fighters coming out of nowhere and conducting their cruel people trials, and superstitious mountain people (serruchos) are the backdrop for the plot and its main characters. Captain Lituma and his adjutant Tomasito, people from the new, more modern world, are posted in a remote mountain village to guard the road building agai [...]

    15. I started reading this book before I went to Peru, and I was connecting with it. It is totally possible that I was distracted by trip preparations, etc. I picked up the book again at the end of my trip (when my Kindle, which had been malfunctioning on vacation, miraculously started working again.) And then I got totally absorbed. The landscapes of Peru were brought to life, and the mystery sucked me in!

    16. ليست أفضل ما قرأت للعبقري يوسا تبدو قصة غامضة عن حوادث قتل متتابعة ومجموعة من الثائرين الغاضبين ، وتخفت تدريجياً ثم تطغى قصة الحب الوحيدة بالقصة حتى تأتى الخاتمة بذكر ما حدث للمختفيين الأوائل من حيث القالب السردي تبدو أقرب لقصته ( من قتل بالومينو موليرو) وان كانت الأخيرة أك [...]

    17. واکنشم در مقابل کتاب‌هایی که از یوسا خوندم اصلاً یه‌جور نبوده، گفتگو در کاتدرال من رو به هیجان می‌آورد، ذهنم رو شدیداً درگیر می‌کرد، شخصیت‌هاش هرکدوم جایی برای همذات‌پنداری داشتند و روایتش و دیالوگ‌هاش عالی بودند. در عوض مجموعه داستان سردسته‌ها اون‌قدری جذبم نکرد که ک [...]

    18. This was an odd duck. At first I wondered about the translation, but Grossman is an old hand, so I'm not laying the reading experience at her feet. I'm a big fan of Llosa's War of the End of the World, which is pretty much an epic. With this one, it seems he wanted shrink his focus -- but still have it be a big novel that says things. Whatever. The numerous flashbacks got on my nerves (in English they seemed clumsily handled), and at times even manipulative, thus draining important scenes of the [...]

    19. As I prepare for an eventual visit to Peru -- perhaps next year sometime -- I find myself entranced by the novels of Mario Vargas Llosa. Last month, I read The Storyteller, about the natives of the jungles of Peru and their myths. Here, in Death in the Andes, we move up into the peaks of the Andes, at a place near Huancayo called Naccos, where the Santa Rita mine has given out and the road that is being built never seems to go anywhere.It is the early 1990s, during the rural terrorism of the Sen [...]

    20. nearly done and it is just amazing. vargos llosa is god. seriously. what he packs into a short novella is astonishing. he's climbing the ranks of my favorite living writers. might have to read his entire body of work.

    21. Se vi piacciono i libri che sino alla fine non svelano i loro misteri, evitate questo: complice una quarta di copertina un po’ troppo esplicita, la soluzione risulta evidente già dal primo capitolo. E il“colpo di scena” , la“sconvolgente verità”(sempre dalla quarta di copertina) dell’ultimo capitolo, secondo me, non impressiona proprio nessuno. Probabilmente, ho pensato io, non era questo l’intento dell’autore: non voleva scrivere un poliziesco, non intendeva dare alla luce il [...]

    22. Awesome book. Mario Vargas Llosa blends folk tales with a love story behind the political screen of Shining Path terrorism. How did he do it? The love story (and its a great love story) emerges from the young guard Tomas who tells Corporal Lituma as he has investigates three mysterious disappearances of local people including the mute young man he befriended. Constantly threatening them is the terror of the Shining Path guerrillas who threaten to kill everything and everyone in their path. To ad [...]

    23. I am ashamed to admit that I only recently (in my early 30s) "discovered" Vargas Llosa, and only read my first work by him in April (2013). My choice of "Death in the Andes" was twofold: first, I had been on a "mystery" binge for at least a year, devouring daily Christie, Ngaio Marsh, Jo Nesbo, Baldacci & the like, and was ready to move on to more substantial, less mind-numbing (written for entertainment value primarily) work--"Death in the Andes" seemed like a perfect transition, a more lit [...]

    24. "Lituma nos Andes" é o meu segundo livro de Mario Vargas Llosa e começo a familiarizar-me com a sua escrita. Sim, porque os livros dele não são fáceis de ler, a forma como ele encadeia as diversas histórias em diversos tempos exige concentração. Neste livro, à semelhança do outro que li dele, "A Festa do Chibo" a minha primeira reacção é de estranheza e penso sempre que não gosto muito dele. No entanto, a verdade é que, em ambos os livros, fui sendo conquistada, sem que me aperceb [...]

    25. Death in the Andes is ostensibly a mystery. Three men are missing in an impoverished Andean mining town. This is originally blamed on the Senderistas, a vicious Communist guerrilla group that terrorized Peru in the 80s. However, when Civil Guards Lituma and Carreno investigate, they suggest there may be older and more disturbing forces at work. But Llosa is not so interested in the mystery as much as to chronicle the history of violence in modern Peru as well as its ancient sources. There is no [...]

    26. The most fascinating part of the novel for me was the way Vargas Llosa plays with time and space as he tells various, intersecting stories. I have never experienced a writer who could accomplish telling a story in two different moments simultaneously in such a flawless way. The novel begins with some gritty stories of naive travelers who fall victim to Sendero Luminoso revolutionaries and then transitions into an exploration of the more sinister elements of indigenous cosmovision, including the [...]

    27. Apesar do titulo mais do que ser a historia do cabo lituma nos andes esta é a história do medo que reina nos andes atraves das mãos do sendero luminoso; das superstiçoes antigas daqueles cumes antiquissimos; da vida dura dos seus habitantes esmagados entre a falta de trabalho, a ameaça do sendero e a geografia, é também a historia de amor entre o romantico cabo carrenito e a independente mercedes.Lituma é o observador de todas estas historias enquanto desterrado num pequeno posto de poli [...]

    28. .في كتابه شيطنات الطفلة الخبيثة تحدث الكاتب بشكل ثانوي عن التمرد الشيوعي في جبال الإنديز على شكل رسائل من عمه في البيرو , أما في كتابه "من قتل بالومينو موليرو " كان بطل القصة الملازم "ليتوما" من بيورا وتالارا المدن الساحلية, هذا الكتاب تكملة لما حدث للملازم ليتوما عند نقله الى ج [...]

    29. wow, totally masterful book. never read any llosa before. it's a love story, a mystery, an historical investigation a full statement on the human condition! god damn. all pretty focused, 275 pages lots of great characters, great writing, tons of different points of view and it all comes together beautifully at the end. i can see why this guy won a nobel prize! IMPRESSED[pisco=brandy; pishtaco=mythical(?) cannibal boogeyman; terrucos=terrorist/rebels]Like pisco, music helps us understand bitter t [...]
