Some worthy, less well known Latin American novels
"A Brazilian classic may be but it's dry, unemotional and indistinct. The only novel angle of the book is the abolition of the slave trade in Brazil. Quality perhaps but uninspiring"
Hopscotch (Pantheon Modern Writers)
"Overall a very worthy, different read which really didn't need the quirky chaptering"
Ghosts (New Directions Paperbook)
"The writing is clear, well paced and in places quite philosophical; and though enjoyable it is not particularly special. It paints an eloquent picture and the pace of the story does lead to an excitin"
Emperor of the Amazon (Abacus Books)
"This is a good book; it's funny, erudite, clever and represents a worthy read."
One Hundred Years of Solitude (Essential Penguin)
"The famous one, that got me started with such novels"
"Overall the sad strong ending didn't quite match the thrust of the narrative yet it's that that makes the reading worthwhile at the conclusion"
Two Novels of Mexico: The Flies and the Bosses
"Overall intriguing pictures of the impacts of revolution on ordinary society"
The Devil to Pay in the Backlands
"I found the narrative to be very reminiscent of "War of the End of the World" by Llosa and hence to be an excellent, `boys own' tale"
"Brilliant Llosaesque dark novel"
"Camus + McCarthy + Latin America = Brazilian psycho. Different"
The President (Modern Classics)
"Another excellent brutal dictatorship depiction"
"A very different but brutal novel of Brazil in late 1960s"
The Dead Girls
"Brothels and murder. A more black than comedy story"
Canaan (Classics of Brazilian Literature)
"Good literature - story line was a missed opportunity"
One Day of Life
"1970s violence in El Salvador impacting on a rural family"
The Slum: A Novel (Library of Latin America)
"one word 'Brilliant' (particularly if you like Emile Zola)"
"Rural backlands without the adventure but with the grief"
The Celebration (Latin American Literature Series)
"Worth a look for its interesting structure"
Voices of the Dead (Zenith)
"A love affair between opposites - worth a look"
"A short shory of historical note for the 1830s"
Seven Serpents and Seven Moons
"a true magical realism style tale in rural town (you won't regret reading this)"
I, the Supreme (Latin American Literature Series)
"Difficult and unenjoyable but hey you might think differently"
Huasipungo: The Villagers: a Novel (Arcturus Books, AB 118)
"Brutal, nasty, abusive landowner - poor surfs"
Torn from the Nest (Library of Latin America)
"Ok but read the Villagers (above) by Icaza"
Pubis Angelical [First Edition]
"Kick of the Controller Men"
