    One thought on “A Sweet Scent of Death”

    1. Es un buen relato y el final te deja con un entripado de los buenos pero todo el tiempo sent que estaba leyendo Cr nica de una muerte anunciada de Garcia Marquez, los escenarios, los nombres de los personajes y hasta los motivos.El realismo m gico tiene muchas similitudes si claro y disfrute el libro pero en ning n momento sent el estilo del autor como por ejemplo en El salvaje libro del mismo autor que le hace poco y que es el mejor que he le do ste a o.

    2. Genial Arriaga Es cierto que el libro tiene muchas reminiscencias de Cr nica de una muerte anunciada, demasiadas quiz s, pero a n as mantiene la tensi n Brutal la descripci n de la sociedad rural mexicana, la violencia impl cita y expl cita en el d a a d a Pobre Ram n, pobre Adela, pobre Gabriela, pobre GitanoEstoy deseando leer El salvaje, que dicen que es mejor.

    3. No me extra a, que sea tan bueno.Compacto y bien armado desde el principio, si bien, tiene referencias o bien, esc nicas del estilo de Garc a M rquez.Un libro muy recomendable, que sin duda, no defrauda.

    4. Reading this was almost like reading a screenplay in terms of being able to so easily visualise every scene That s not to say, however, the writing was short on prose, or dialogue heavy Arriaga makes good use of every last word I initially felt a little short changed when I saw it was only one hundred and sixty pages long.As a fan of his work in cinema, there was an added bonus of seeing the name of a character who becomes the subject of an entire movie, two or three years after the publication [...]

    5. Gostei moderadamente, dado que, penso eu, o autor n o pretendeu fazer de Um doce aroma de morte um grande livro de mist rio, e sim um af vel livro de mist rio Mas n o interpretem erroneamente minhas palavras, pois a obra do roteirista mexicano boa e entretenida do come o ao fim Em 172 p ginas nutrimo nos de um aroma pestilente buc lico que vai acrescentando se mediante a trama avan a e o enredo vai tomando obscuridade e complexidade E eu particularmente gosto disso Muito Gosto de livros que me i [...]

    6. I m still wondering if this book should be called a crime novel The humour noir is spot on, it s funny, macabre but there s also some poetry and something truly irresistibe in that rather short story of an unsolved murder in some random Mexican village Or how one may ends up being trapped by gossip, misunderstanding, secrets, mistakes, fantasies and general weaknesses The biggest tragedies can be caused by such small things.

    7. Perd n pero lo voy a decir burdamente, el autor no tuvo ni tantita madre con ese final La narrativa y todo el enredo que hace en pocas p ginas est muy chido pero el final, EL FINAL 3.5

    8. Fast, scenic, and cinematic Arriaga creates an amazing setting in the mexican countryside and its peculiarities that may be found in many other countries The discovery of a dead girl sparkles a series of events in a mexican village that get entangled with other secrets and passions of the villagers An amazing plot that is based on the dynamics of constrained, small societies with old school principles based on short sided honour Arriaga captures, in a perfect way, how petty thoughts and frustrat [...]

    11. Easily devoured in a few sittings, this is everything a decent novella should be really Arriaga manages to condense a tightly structured plot with believable three dimensional characters into 150 pages The pulsating pace builds tension nicely as we freewheel into the inevitable denouement the slight ambiguity of the final closing lines adding just enough intrigue to help avoid predictability.Arriaga s writing is almost cinematic perhaps unsurprising given his background and I mean this in a very [...]

    12. the endingwhat a rip off for the last few pages i sat on the Cal west gate entrance grassy knoll and when i read the last paragraph i couldn t believe it, tu crees i yelled at the clouds so i guess Arriaga s best works are those in which he intertwines through tragic incidents the lives of multiple characters and gives them depth such as As Perros and 21 Grams i REALLY wanted to read about Adela and Ramon, their encounters and especially the scene when Ramon finds her diary, we don t know 1 10 [...]

    13.

    14. Goed geschreven, kan zo verfilmd worden De auteur heeft dan ook vnllmscripts op zijn naam staan Er wordt een jonge vrouw vermoord in een klein dorp in Mexico Haar vriend wordt geacht wraak te nemen op de moordenaar Die wordt aangewezen dooe iemand, die deze man wel kwijt wil Degene, die beter weet, laat het gewoon gebeuren.Het beokheeft veel weg van Kroniek van een aaangekondigde dood van Garcia Marquez Wie de moord nu wel gepleegd heeft wordt niet duidelijk.

    15. L criture est mauvaise Je dois m arr ter l , si j en dis plus, ce sera une perte de temps Cependant je voudrais pointer la seule id e m me si elle est avort e qui m a paru originale D couvrir que quelqu un t aime est une responsabilit Mais d couvrir que quelqu un t a aim et qu il n est plus de ce monde Est ce une responsabilit Envers qui Cela me para t un terrain peu exploit , une for t vierge H las L criture est mauvaise.

    16. Mientras que le este cuento por Guillermo Arriaga hace unos a os, siento una compulsi n de una vez que es parte homenage, parte sentimental y parte narcisista por lo haber le do Arriaga en espa ol, de a adir su libro a mi lista Yo me pregunto que har a yo si hubiera encontrado un cadaver de una persona media conocida No s si tengo la tendencia de justicia y venganza en mis venas tal como ten a Ramon hacia el asesinato de Adela.

    18. The author is Mexican and this was translated A tight chilling little novel of murder, and timeless lawlessness in a little Mexican village It could have been set in the 1800s, except its era betrayed by info such as the selling and smuggling of tape recorders Polished it off this afternoon in about 2 3 hours.

    19. At first I liked this book considering I usually do not read crime policier novels In the middle I realized how it will end but I kinda hoped that the events will take another turn I guess it was in vain cause the ending left me with a bitter taste like the plot was left hanging I don t recommend it.

    20. Intr un sat prapadit din Mexic, o adolescenta e ucisa cu o lovitura de cutit in spate Nu conteaza cine e vinovatul, conteaza doar ce spune gura lumiiUn roman rau, cinic si poetic despre rautatea din oricine si despre destinul care atarna ca o piatra de moara Altfel spus, o telenovela nemiloasa.

    21. 2.5 EstrellasUna novela de lo absurdo una historia que alguien inventa y que, a fuerza de repetirse, de no negarse, se convierte en una verdad Por lo predecible del final, una cierto aire a Cronica de una muerte anunciada Pero no se le compara Prescindible
