What a strange mysterious deeply compelling book I highly recommend that people look up the history behind the characters on Wikipedia even though the novel bluntly advises us that the novel is not nor does it attempt to be a faithful portrait of any member of the Erlt family Still though even though if little of the history appears in the book Nazis helping the CIA hunt down Che Guevara what a story The story that DOES appear in the book took a while for me to get into I started the book and put it down at least two times but once I knew the history that helped a lot I read somewhere that the book was initially a lot longer but the author cut it down to its bare bones What a brave choice The story in here could have easily been fattened up to 300 pages but as is it works as a strange kind of poetry in its thinness I underlined so many sentences in this book and the haunting image of the final chapter in which workers are hired to dig what is most likely a grave will stay with me for a while Not an easy read but if you re interested in guerrilla stories or Latin America of the 60s a highly recommended one Buddhist Modernities you re interested in guerrilla stories or Latin America of the 60s a highly recommended one

Affections Rodrigo Hasb n Based on actual events and set almost entirely in Bolivia this is a sprawling novella if there can be such a thing in that it encompasses than 30 years and attempts to tell the stories of five people s lives during that time In trying to take on so much it is difficult to empathise or even be familiar with any of the characters There is a lot of history crammed in as well Hans Ertl was a Nazi cameraman and although never a member of the party fled with his wife and three daughters to South America in the late stages of the war as so many did Having led an unsuccessful expedition in search of a legendary Inca city his previously happy family life deteriorates The chapters are told from the point of view of the father and his daughters alternately as they become involved with the Bolivian Revolution in 1952 and the following period of political unrest to the 1967 revolution Having lived in South America for some years I found the novel of interest though it was not an easy read I can t help have the feeling the Hasb n has tried to do too much in such few pages and missed an opportunity of writing a sympathetic and deeper account
