Captivating at times but overall not that great Just a year before 100 Years of Solitude Reinaldo Arenas wrote his own magical realist novel El Mundo Alucinante or Hallucinations Surreal picaresue HISTORICAL SATIRICAL AND HILARIOUS COMPREHENSIVELY satirical and hilarious Hallucinations comprehensively the best Latin American The Real Ebonics Debate literature at this time Drawing parallels between the onset of Mexican independence and contemporary revolutionary movements Arenas focuses on the experiences of one man Friar Servando Teresa de Mier a true historical figure who was persecuted for much of hisife for his strange preachings on When Action Follows Heart liberation independence and the fact that Christianity had already been brought to the Americas by St Thomas before the Spanish conuista a theory which helped open the door for Mexican independence from Spain Thousands die in ridiculous and often funny ways the friar ends up naked most of the time and is constantly escaping prison This book makes fun of government the church and our interpretations of history It is brilliant First novel for one of my graduate courses that I actually enjoyed This book was crazyI embarked upon this read because an importantady in my Almost Alchemy life happened to have written her senior thesis on it and Alejo Carpentier s Explosion in a Cathedral The book follows the Peregrinations and ill fated they are indeed of a 17th century Mexican priest as he is hounded throughout the world following and inflammatory and by some accounts blasphemous speech The book readsike a series of hallucinations and very rarely makes a whole English for Academic Correspondence and Socializing lot of sense But as Iearned from reading an excellently though out and written thesis this was intentional In a reaction to Carpentier s very grand and historical style Arenas treats history as uncertain and the accounts of it merely one possibility This revelation did make sense however it did not make the book any easier to readFray Servando is for the most part a very sympathetic character and I found myself curious as to what strange misfortune would befall him next I never was uite sure if that misfortune did ever befall him though since often the next chapter was written in the second person telling either me or Servando that what had just transpired had not just transpiredAs confusing and meandering and I 食戟のソーマ 10 ll say it seemingly nonsensical this book was I did find myself enjoying it Maybe that s just how much I dig this girl who had me read it or maybe it s actually interesting to read such a strangely and unorthodoxly written book I rate this book a 38 on a sca. In the brilliant tradition of Don uixote and Candide this passionate novel by the author of Before Night Falls is a modern masterpiece of Latin American fiction Fray Servando priest blasphemer dueler of monsters irresistibleover misunderstood prophet prisone. ,
