La multitud errante
Restrepo has been lauded by Garcia Marquez and by critics generally, so I’ll try another of her books. For example, “su amor” was translated as “his loved one” and not “his beloved”.
In just over pages, this novela starts with a great premise. As always, her writing style is beautiful, and the premise is interesting. A woman who works at a shelter in a remote part of war-torn Colombia falls in love with one of the refugees who comes to stay. Lindsay rated it it was ok Sep 03, Unlike the other works I’ve read by Restrepo, this is a novella. Open Preview See a Problem?

Llena de atractivos, de nuevo, la novela goza de un manejo del lenguaje espectacular al que Restrepo nos tiene muy acostumbrados. I really enjoy the genre, and Restrepo is one of my favorites, so I had high hopes.

La multitud errante by Laura Restrepo (2 star ratings)
In the past, books have earned five stars, but after reading such poetic prose, magical description, and such painful longing, there has to be a category for more than five stars. My library Help Advanced Book Larua. A Tale of the Dispossessed speaks to us about the inexorable law that has led man, expelled from paradise since the days of Adam through to modern times, in his search for a way back home. When I learn it, I’ll write it.

David Escobar De Lavalle rated it it was ok Jun 14, Set against an Armageddon of violence and massacres, somehow the magic of desire evolves into love, a piece of beauty in a small sheltered convent that is safe haven from the war without. A way station for refugees from violence is the setting for an intense love triangle in which an uprooted and wandering people lead the reader to experience the collective drama of forced relocation.
Camila rated it it was ok Feb 11, To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Perhaps I was expecting too much, thinking this might read like a Garcia Marquez story or novella. No obstante, hay descripciones muy sutiles para describir el tiempo de guerra. But, I thought it could have been a novel, not just a novela. Nunca se debe subestimar la fidelidad que cada quien le guarda a sus viejos dolores The story recounts the search of Arawak Three Yes just about every turn is something odd or incredible.
The narrator, who remains unnamed throughout the novella, tells us of her longing for Three Sevens, and in turn of his longing for Matilde Lina.
Where the air hurts the skin, and the blood boils in her veins, and living is a bed of nails, she guides a humble hero away from the illusion of desire to the reality of love.
Some other adjective must describe this book. Pickle Farmer rated it it was ok Oct 14, La novela toca una forma humana de ver la violencia rural de Restrwpo. Esta vez iba buscando “Historia de un entusiasmo”. Also, the version I have has the English translation and the original Spanish in one book.
