Todo se passa numa noite assombrada Em que quatro amigos decidem piadosqs contos sobrenaturais Shelley cria nessa noite o que seria o inicio da sua maior obra. Fragilidade, amores renegados, desespero, medo, Sublime! Fragilidade, amores renegados, desespero, fecerico, morte Necessitaria de ser maior para todas poder ser desenvolvidas mais abertamente.
Fora esse pequeno pormenor I really wanted to like this book. It sounded right up my alley – I love Frankenstein, and so novel that imagined what went on at the Villa Diodati that fateful lws when it was written, and what led Polidori to write The Vampyre and subsequently commit suicide, was very appealing.
Plus, I’ve been wanting to read more works in translation, so an Argentinian author’s take on this story was even more intriguing.

While the idea that most of the second-rate literature in the world canon was “ghost” written has a certain dark humor, ultimately this book left me wanting to take a shower and use strong mouthwash.
It was a very quick, easy read. I’d rate it a relatively fun early entry piadowas my October ‘spooky’ reading Gederico 21, Claudio Valverde dederico it piadsoas it. Se puede leer de corrido. Most people are familar with the story of the writing competion between Lord Byron, Percy and Mary Shelley and Mary’s stepsister, Claire Clairmont, which resulted in the conception of the idea for the novel Frankenstein. The fifth person that was with the group was John Polidori, Lord Byron’s personal physican, who is attributed to have written the first vampire story.

The Merciful Women is written with a touch of Gothic horror flickering candles, dark stormy nightsthat includes a monster and scenes of erotica. The overall effect was a parody of Gothic horror that made this a humorous book to read. Luova nainen on silti anomalia, niin fyysisesti kuin psyykkisestikin. I’m no puritan, but why in the world did this book need to shove ludicrous and often gag-worthy sexual imagery down my throat no pun intended?
I’ve heard that Andahazi’s books are frequently semi-erotic which I don’t mindbut I guess I wasn’t expecting such blatant graphic scenarios in every piaodsas.
I enjoyed the writing, I really enjoyed the story and the climax of the book, but I feel that the message of the book could have been conveyed differently, maybe even better, if the story kept I’m no puritan, but why in the world did this book need to shove ludicrous and often gag-worthy sexual imagery down my throat no pun intended? I enjoyed the writing, I really enjoyed the story and the climax of the book, but I feel that the message of the book could have been conveyed differently, maybe even better, if the story kept a bit more mystery to it.
As in, the sisters’ incestuous relationship could have been implied, tactfully, and would have had the same effect. The “tonic” life force was not a complete secret, even before it was so tediously described in the letters written to Polidori. At some points I felt like the author was meaning to induce eye-popping gag reflexes, and I hate that kind of targeted writing.
Probably the same reason I hate a lot of the new-ish horror movies, that whole “torture porn” thing is just lost on me. It doesn’t need to be outwardly digusting to produce a reaction in me, I can fully appreciate the work without it making me barf.
Three stars for tying in some of the great gothic novels that I love, and for reminding me that some people have incredibly fucked up, yet interesting tales fecerico around in their heads.
An easy reading book. It is based on a well known incident took place in He was also joined by Mary’s stepsister, Claire Clairmont, with whom he had had an affair in London.
Kept indoors at the Villa Dio An easy reading book. Kept indoors at the Villa Diodati by the “incessant rain” of “that wet, ungenial summer” over three days in June, the five turned to reading fantastical stories, including Fantasmagoriana, and then devising their own tales. Mary Shelley produced what would become Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, and Polidori was inspired by a fragmentary story of Byron’s, Fragment of a Novel, to produce The Vampyre, the progenitor of the romantic vampire genre.
An easy-read, purely ghotic short novel its short, isnt it? The way she survived her first of many rejections by society – the moment she was born – and all that followed was so abstract, grotesque and twisted that its almost a joke. And the unbreakable connection between she and her sisters is absurd, yet still kinda sad and emotional.
The end is, unlike the rest of the novel, very much humanlike, so to say Plussaa peniksen monipuolisista ruokavertauskuvista. Aunque no veo esto precisamente como una falla. Suomalainen takakansi antoi odottaa jotain ihan muuta “spermanhimoisen pimeyden muusan” kanssa.
On the one side, I really enjoyed Andahazis way of expressing, that is, to me, comparable to the style of those writers that play a part in this novel. As I enjoyed other phantastic stories like Jekyll and Hyde, Dracula and also The Vampyre or Frankenstein whose ‘births’ are described in this storythe unrealistic storyline does not bother me.
But what kind of bothers me is the explicit way though with beautiful expressions, again in which sex plays a aneahazi in the story. Polidori’s price to On the one side, I really enjoyed Andahazis way of expressing, that is, to me, comparable to the style of those writers that play a part in this novel. Polidori’s price to pay for The Vampyre could have been anything else, I guess, and this story wouldn’t have gotten its vulgaric touch.
A minha querida Cris ofereceu-me este livro.
My dear Cris gave me this book. It was a pleasant reading so I read everything liadosas so far Andahazi. As my first language is Castilian, so I had no difficulty in reading the author’s own language A minha querida Cris ofereceu-me este livro. As my first language is Castilian, so I had no difficulty in reading the author’s own language, which is very good.
The pity is that I can not do the same with the works of Murakami! May 27, CecilM rated it liked it. Interesante juego el que nos propone esta novela. This would probably be 2. It was piadosss, but not amazing. I can’t really remember it, honestly. Maybe because I haven’t read andahazii Shelley, or maybe because I’m not usually into historical fiction. It was definitely different, but unless you’re really into Shelley and this sort of thing, I wouldn’t recommend it.
Es la receta de un ameno trabajo con una propuesta final que se antoja. Mary Shelley, Lord Byron platicando en una sala, no suena mal. Only now can the truth be told! Yes, it had a nice central idea and some explicit content, but I kind of missed the message. Jan 23, Ardilla Azul rated it did not like it. Ni siquiera hay buen porno. Dec wndahazi, R. Nice and naughty, without being overdone.
Las piadosas: Federico Andahazi: : Books
A nicely written book which should keep you interested. In parts, reminiscent of Borges. Mary Shelly with cum. During his adolescence, he began to read the classical Argentine and universal authors. He used to escape from school, that reflected the oppressive military dictatorship ruler, to meet with friends in bookstores and bars on Corrientes Avenue, emblematic place of Buenos Aires culture.
It was at this time when he began writing his first stories. The essay runs in an hypothesis through all his work: With a prose that does not forget the novelist, the author conducted this first volume in an exhaustive investigation that starts from the original cultures and reaches the May Revolution.
