Excellence is an easy word to bandy about. Some other adjective must describe this book.
The narrator, who remains unnamed throughout the novella, tells us of her longing for Three Sevens, and in turn of his longing for Matilde Lina. Set against an Armageddon of violence and massacres, In the past, books have earned five stars, but after reading such poetic prose, magical description, and such painful longing, there has to be a category for more than five stars. Set against an Armageddon of violence and massacres, somehow the magic of desire evolves into love, a piece of beauty in a small sheltered convent that is safe haven from the war without.
Where the air hurts the skin, and the blood boils in her veins, and living is a bed of nails, she guides a humble hero away from the illusion of desire to the reality of love. Colombia y su campo se convierten en el escenario de un pueblo con ADN de conflicto, con el otro, con los otros, con nosotros, con lo que fuimos y lo que posiblemente no llegaremos a ser. Pese a que en la voz de la narradora hay algunas inconsistencias, es muy apasionada.
