    • 7 10 A haunting and disturbing story, skillfully presented, but I hold Mr Llosa to higher standards after including his sprawling, philosophical War Of The End of The World on my favorites list I learned a lot now about modern Peru, which is why I picked the book up in the first place, but I also had issues with the muddled dialogue, with the slow pace, continually fragmented by flashbacks, and with a perceived bias against the Sendero Luminoso guerilla, who received an extremely harsh treatment [...]

    • This was an excellent story with great characters and captivating narration Lituma is now stationed in the mountains in Naccos after being ejected from Piura after Palomino Molera and needs to solve a triple homicide which superficially looks like it may be the work of the Sendero Luminoso terrorists whom we also gets glimpses at during the book through some of their victims The pace never lets up and we also are treated to local folklore like in The Storyteller which plays an important part in [...]

    • Punitive assignment in the Andes.Brigadier Lituma who had already met in Who Killed Palomino Molero found himself transferred to a lost corn in the Peruvian hinterland, surrounded by ragged, mute and superstitious peons, spending their nights in bars of drunkenness and debauchery, on the site of an improbable road under construction.Nature is magnificent but relentless and oppressive The days are furnace and polar nights.The police station is a hovel and its occupants live there like monks, with [...]

    • So now I am really getting a feel for the Peruvian maestro have had the pleasure to read 5 of his like 20 or so books Death in the Andes is a horror story made comical, like most Latin American tragedies Before Night Falls, or Kiss of the Spider Woman , or recently, M.V.L s The Feast of the Goat which persist hard in trying not to be overtly sad Thematically rich, with tragedy piled atop tragedy, the narrative flow is invigorating, forcing the reader to forget all about airport terminals and th [...]

    • This book doesn t just tell a story It is told through stories, through storytelling, and this makes all the stories of Peru, even those beyond the confines of the page, one story Mario Vargas Llosa doesn t give a damn about time or space or traditional plot he doesn t care about making the reader comfortable or making reading easy he cares about connections, and he makes them however he damn well pleases.Death in the Andes follows three stories for a while The first follows Corporal Lituma s se [...]

    • Two Peruvian police officers, both outsiders, are stationed in a remote post in the Andes While they investigate the disappearance of 3 men a terroristic organization operates in the area In the cold lonely nights, the younger officer Tomasito tells the older officer Lituma his love story which is how he came to be assigned to this dying mining town They frequent a bar where the story of its owners weaves in and out.Like Llosa s Conversation in the Cathedral, the text is hard to follow The tense [...]

    • I have enjoyed everything I have read by Vargas Llosa, so I am biased This was a great read, I didn t want to put it down I was quite surprised that it had a relatively happy ending, considering the whole novel is about the death and destruction brought on by terrorism and corrupt government I first read this novel in Spanish in June 2008 Three years later, I am reading it in English, planning to teach it in a freshman seminar, and trying to read it through the eyes of an 18 year old.This time a [...]

    • The old mingles with the new in Vargas Llosa s Peru Human sacrifices and spirits of the mountains, road building, terrucos uncompromising, ruthless and cruel freedom fighters coming out of nowhere and conducting their cruel people trials, and superstitious mountain people serruchos are the backdrop for the plot and its main characters Captain Lituma and his adjutant Tomasito, people from the new, modern world, are posted in a remote mountain village to guard the road building against the terruc [...]

    • I started reading this book before I went to Peru, and I was connecting with it It is totally possible that I was distracted by trip preparations, etc I picked up the book again at the end of my trip when my Kindle, which had been malfunctioning on vacation, miraculously started working again And then I got totally absorbed The landscapes of Peru were brought to life, and the mystery sucked me in

    • This was an odd duck At first I wondered about the translation, but Grossman is an old hand, so I m not laying the reading experience at her feet I m a big fan of Llosa s War of the End of the World, which is pretty much an epic With this one, it seems he wanted shrink his focus but still have it be a big novel that says things Whatever The numerous flashbacks got on my nerves in English they seemed clumsily handled , and at times even manipulative, thus draining important scenes of their impact [...]

    • As I prepare for an eventual visit to Peru perhaps next year sometime I find myself entranced by the novels of Mario Vargas Llosa Last month, I read The Storyteller, about the natives of the jungles of Peru and their myths Here, in Death in the Andes, we move up into the peaks of the Andes, at a place near Huancayo called Naccos, where the Santa Rita mine has given out and the road that is being built never seems to go anywhere.It is the early 1990s, during the rural terrorism of the Sendero Lum [...]

    • nearly done and it is just amazing vargos llosa is god seriously what he packs into a short novella is astonishing he s climbing the ranks of my favorite living writers might have to read his entire body of work.

    • Se vi piacciono i libri che sino alla fine non svelano i loro misteri, evitate questo complice una quarta di copertina un po troppo esplicita, la soluzione risulta evidente gi dal primo capitolo E il colpo di scena , la sconvolgente verit sempre dalla quarta di copertina dell ultimo capitolo, secondo me, non impressiona proprio nessuno Probabilmente, ho pensato io, non era questo l intento dell autore non voleva scrivere un poliziesco, non intendeva dare alla luce il commissario Montalbano del P [...]

    • Awesome book Mario Vargas Llosa blends folk tales with a love story behind the political screen of Shining Path terrorism How did he do it The love story and its a great love story emerges from the young guard Tomas who tells Corporal Lituma as he has investigates three mysterious disappearances of local people including the mute young man he befriended Constantly threatening them is the terror of the Shining Path guerrillas who threaten to kill everything and everyone in their path To add to th [...]

    • I am ashamed to admit that I only recently in my early 30s discovered Vargas Llosa, and only read my first work by him in April 2013 My choice of Death in the Andes was twofold first, I had been on a mystery binge for at least a year, devouring daily Christie, Ngaio Marsh, Jo Nesbo, Baldacci the like, and was ready to move on to substantial, less mind numbing written for entertainment value primarily work Death in the Andes seemed like a perfect transition, a literary mystery by a Nobel laurea [...]

    • Lituma nos Andes o meu segundo livro de Mario Vargas Llosa e come o a familiarizar me com a sua escrita Sim, porque os livros dele n o s o f ceis de ler, a forma como ele encadeia as diversas hist rias em diversos tempos exige concentra o Neste livro, semelhan a do outro que li dele, A Festa do Chibo a minha primeira reac o de estranheza e penso sempre que n o gosto muito dele No entanto, a verdade que, em ambos os livros, fui sendo conquistada, sem que me apercebesse disso, e no fim no fim gost [...]

    • Death in the Andes is ostensibly a mystery Three men are missing in an impoverished Andean mining town This is originally blamed on the Senderistas, a vicious Communist guerrilla group that terrorized Peru in the 80s However, when Civil Guards Lituma and Carreno investigate, they suggest there may be older and disturbing forces at work But Llosa is not so interested in the mystery as much as to chronicle the history of violence in modern Peru as well as its ancient sources There is no question [...]

    • The most fascinating part of the novel for me was the way Vargas Llosa plays with time and space as he tells various, intersecting stories I have never experienced a writer who could accomplish telling a story in two different moments simultaneously in such a flawless way The novel begins with some gritty stories of naive travelers who fall victim to Sendero Luminoso revolutionaries and then transitions into an exploration of the sinister elements of indigenous cosmovision, including the evil s [...]
