Perhaps not my style

I am aware that some books become arduous soley because the genre does not fit the reader. This is one such I think. Martinez likes to discribe feelings or moments several different ways to the point of boredom-but as I said:perhaps it was a book just not for me.

Subversive on LSD

The description of this book makes it sound like a sci fi thriller. This is not the case!



30 years after his dissaperance, Emilia, our hero, meets her husband in a cafe. 30 years has gone but the husband still looks 30 years old. This sounds like the beginning of a sci fi thriller but it's not. Actually i think that that what the book was supposed to be but the story devellops in a totally different direction. This story is a historical drama with a political agenda. Actually this is the history of Argentina in the 70. and early 80. after Peron. A little unexpected but the book is well written and 9 hours went by in a flash. If the thing with the husband showing up after 30 years had been left out this could have been a great book..
