In this novel, a mother and son are trying to find an estranged father. Slogging through page after page of uninteresting conversations with unrealistic characters is what in the end earned this book a one star rating. She wants Mateo, the son to grow in peace in Colombia.

This one was so boring. Yes, it held my interest but it jumped around too much and focused too much for me on this story with Mateo, her son, who I found to be an immature and pretty much annoying character. Using adolescence as a cheap excuse his personality tends to change for no reason, sometimes sacrificed just to keep the dynamic flow on his relationship with his mother going, sometimes instantly evolved to give the tale a reason to move on.

He behavior seemed erratic without any apparent explanation; swinging from terribly child-like to behaving like a functioning adult. In she won t Laura Restrepo is a Colombian writer. The best part of the novel is the constant conversations between the mother who narrates the stories of her adventurous life and the adolescent son who questions everything she says in his irreverent way.

This book lakra not yet featured on Listopia. The real life of Laura Restrepo is demaziados as fascinating as her novels. However, once the story begins to progress, especially through various flashbacks, I found myself drawn into the scenes about secret meetings, spies in the revolution, and the constant fear the characters lived under.

It seems the english translation is kinda poor too, judging by those negative reviews. I even noticed the occasional Spanish noun-adjective word order, which is only confusing when rendered in English. Return to Book Page. They start living together laurra the life is filled with fear and tension under the military regime.

Es una buena novela, en su contexto es honesta y resalta la calidad humana y literaria de la autora. I was given this book through the Goodreads First Reads program.

The description of this book said it was a dark comedy about a mother and son as they search for the missing "father" aka. The problem I had with this novel is the description on the book cover ended up being much more interesting and piquing than the actual text inside the book. I received this book directly from the marketing department at DoubleDay books through a GoodReads contest. I enjoy dark comic novels such as Augusten Burroughs and John Irving This is a story of the mother telling a story to her son, who is supposedly in his teens but acts much like a five year old. His age seems to continuously change from five year old mannerisms to twenty year old actions and is never consistent. Another issue that I had was the mother simply told the story.
