El Pergamino de la Seduccion EPB: Una Novela by Gioconda Belli (1 star ratings)
I officially give up on this book, after having read more than a third of it. I really wanted to finish it, but it is irritating me more and more as I go on. It is made up of two stories: The first is decidedly creepy I think mostly for the way it’s presented, because I have certainly read much creepier things than a relationship between a year-old and an older man and it ha I officially give up on this book, after having read more than a third of it.
The first is decidedly creepy I think mostly for the way it’s presented, because I have certainly read much creepier things than a relationship between a year-old and an older man and it hasn’t put me off of the book ; the second had a lot of potential, but fell kind of flat, at least in the part that I read.
I think it’s meant to be a sort of vindication of Juana, but the whole examining the interiority of the historical figure seemed kind of forced and the narration was plagued with stereotypes.
After the umpteenth mention of evil, repressive, Catholic Spain vs. Perhaps the rest of the book is more believable, but I have my doubts. She is portrayed as a hysterical, ignorant nymph who only takes pride in being plumbered by her hermosito.
Also disappointing is that the historical setting is pergamjno that: The characters could also have been on heat in Budapest in the The minor and her lecturer are just as boring. Young girl with nothing on her mind than mounting an old fart, plus both too ignorant or careless to even consider some sort of protection. I was really enjoying this book. Until the creepy forty year old professor and the naive convent raised sixteen year old started having sex. Then I put it down.

If that doesn’t bother you, this book was really good. I would love to know what happens, but without having to think about the sex between those two. Novela chafa, con personajes fake y discurso impostado. La autora me late como poeta. Y Juana siempre me ha parecido una reina atractiva, por gikconda, precisamente.
O sea, trato de justificar mi pendejada. I would not have given it one star but on the whole the story was pretty good if you can get past the pedophilic behavior of the grown man. It creeped me out and I found myself scanning over those parts very quickly.
The historic story portion of the plot I found very interesting. I tried to overcome the ridiculous premise–that by putting on a period dress, the main character could channel the emotions of a long-dead queen–but it kept nagging at me. That and the fact that I found the book rather boring made it so I couldn’t read more than 40 or so pages. Bizarre eroticism including hints of incest, role-playing, and few redeeming qualities.
Another when I was at the bargain store and desperately needed anything to read. The worst book I have ever read. Would’ve made an interesting historical novel in and of itself. But the interplay gooconda the present yioconda past was ridiculously absurd and fell completely flat at the end.
