The problem for Latin American language authors is that people have a tendency to compare to some pretty heavy hitters like Garcia Maruez Vargas Llosa or Luis Borges That is patently unfair of course but people will carry with them these expectations into the bookSo the beginning of The Neruda Case was somewhat unpromising Not very dramatic somewhat pedestrian and actually kind of slow In the middle of the beginning paragraph I started to wonder whether it was the translation that was problem or whether it was Ampuero that was the problemAs I got further into the book the narrative was good enough to hold my interest without making the reading seem like a chore the writing got better and the story became far interesting Of particular interest were the narratives which was written in Neruda s own voice Ampuero pulled off the feat of writing in two distinct styles Although the majority of the narrative was written in the third person subjective voice and was less than engagingThe novel weaves itself around the life of Pablo Neruda towards the end of his life The entire narrative hangs itself on Neruda s female conuests but the end of Neruda s life is also wrapped around the 1973 coup in Chile which saw the legitimately elected president of Chile Salvador Allende be deposed by Agosto Pinochet and the Nixon White House That part of the narrative seemed to be interesting and Ampuero was seemingly eager to explore that line of narrative And he did for a time but he kept returning to the Neruda story because that was the mechanism by which he chose to tell his storyThe story got better the writing got better and my interest got piued as I worked my way through the story I doubt I would have kept going through the rough parts if it weren t for those narratives written in Neruda s voiceIn the end it was a decently satisfactory story with a fairly satisfactory ending My interest is piued enough to try some of Ampuero s other novelsIf this seems like a mild review that is because it is I am glad I read it but there was nothing exceptional about the story or the writing

Roberto Ampuero ´ 4 characters

El caso Neruda Summary ç PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Un Pablo Neruda anciano y enfermo acaba de regresar a Chile después de dejar su cargo como embajador del gobierno de Salvador Allende en París De su vida –llena de éxitos– le ueda solo un misterio por desvelar Una dud. first I bought a real copy of this book so this ARC is yours if you want it You have to live in the US and be the first to leave a comment I ll pay postage second the reviewHad I done my homework as I usually do when I come across a new author I would have learned that Roberto Ampuero is the author of an entire series featuring detective Cayetano Brul Beginning in 1993 with ui n mat a Cristi n Kustermann Who Killed Christian Kustermann Brul has been involved in several cases The Neruda Case is the latest to be written but it seems to be a preuel that explains how Brul got his start in the detective biz To be brutally honest as I sat down to read this book I was concerned that having Pablo Neruda as a character in a detective novel might be a cheap ploy Although the main character spends a lot of time and energy traveling around and pursuing answers on Neruda s behalf the book turns out to be an homage of sorts to the Nobel winning poet rather than your standard detective novel It s also a commentary on the betrayal and death of idealsThe author notes that as a boy he lived near Neruda s home La Sebastiana in Valpara so where on three separate occasions I went to La Sebastiana in my school uniform and carrying my briefcase full of notebooks and stood at the door to the poet s garden All I wanted to do was to talk to the poet But all three times I was petrifiednot daring to knock and ask to enter the realm where Neruda dwelt with his secrets Now Ampuero s Cayetano Brul has the honor of entering that house where the author s boyhood shyness kept him from doing the sameSitting in the Cafe del Poeta in Valparaiso one day in 1990 Cayetano Brul sees a photo of Pablo Neruda on the back of his menu and flashes back to his very first case back in the 70s the most closely guarded secret of his life that began at party his wife ngela had made him attend at the home of the city s mayor Not feeling like mingling with the bigwigs Brul hides out in the library His peace is shattered when another man walks into the room and they begin talking It is only when ngela comes in to tell the stranger that he s wanted at the party that Cayetano realizes he s been spending time with Pablo Neruda who invites him to his home at La Sebastiana It isn t long until Brul is welcomed into Neruda s home that the poet gets to the point of the invitation he is dying of cancer he s seeking an oncologist Dr ngel Bracamonte and he wants Cayetano to do some detective work to locate him After a trip to Mexico city that produces uestions than answers Neruda explains the real reason behind his search it seems that Bracamonte s wife Beatriz was once one of the poet s many lovers he needs to know if the daughter she gave birth to is his Time is running out and Neruda plagued by his memories of all the women he s betrayed in the name of poetry wants to know for sure before the end comes Cayetano s search will take him from Mexico to Cuba to East Germany and Bolivia where he realizes that the utopian ideals promised by revolution have all but collapsed and have become something else entirely It will also place him in the company of some well known figures of the times including Neruda s friend Salvador Allende whose tenure as president of Chile is on its last legsIf you want to look at this book simply as the series preuel that explains how Cayetano Brul first got into the private eye business there are a couple of entertaining moments Neruda s advice to Brul about using the novels of Georges Simenon as a guide to becoming a detective his Maigret del Caribe Brul s narrow escape from East Germany and a few other scenes featuring the hapless newbie detective But of greater interest to me was the political backdrop against which this book is set during the last gasps of the Allende government prior to the US backed coup that placed Pinochet in power And aside from the sillier moments where Brul is initiated into the detective trade there is a much serious exploration of different idealistic visions that got lost somewhere along the wayVery much recommended especially if you are interested in Latin American history or revolutionary history in general I hope this book does well perhaps it will create some interest in translating Ampuero s other novels into English
