The way back to the s and a world on the brink of change a time before narco trafficking trapped a whole generation in a living nightmareVásuez is “one of the most original new voices of Latin American literature” according to Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa and The Sound of Things Falling is his most personal most contemporary novel to date a masterpiece that takes his writing and will take his literary star even higherWinner of the International IMPAC DUBLIN Literary Awar I m pretty sure the title of this novel The Sound of Things Falling refers to the sound of the book falling on the floor every time you doze off while reading it The protagonist Antonio was neither likable nor lovable nor interesting in any way and the same goes for Maya Fritts and her parents Elena and Laverde who were all flat characters I looked forward to reading this book after putting my name on a long waiting list at the public library for it as I love several Latin American authors and Juan Gabriel Vasuez was billed as a rising star This book attempts to bring to life 1980s Colombia the drug cartels and the people who lived to experience it firsthand Unfortunately the author seems unable or unwilling to successfully recreate this period For one the narrative crawls at a snail s pace until the halfway point and from that point forward not much else happens Where does Colombia fall apart collapse in flames as a poem the author uotes in the book alludes to Where does the fear that Gabriel Vasuez mentions come from besides one or two isolated incidents This author needs to show and tell less first rule of creative writing 101 The past that Antonio and Maya supposedly share is one we as the readers of this book are never made privy to not in any detail and therefore this book fails to hold together as a successful novel for me

    I'm pretty sure the title of this novel The Sound of Things Falling refers to the sound of the book falling on the floor every time you doze off while reading it The protagonist Antonio was neither likable nor lovable nor interesting in any way and the same goes for Maya Fritts and her parents Elena and Laverde who were all flat characters I looked forward to reading this book after putting my name on a long waiting list at the public libra
