      Ο Σεπούλβεδα ήταν πολύ δημοφιλής στα φοιτητικά μου χρόνια, τουλάχιστον μεταξύ των φίλων/γνωστών μου. Το πρώτο του βιβλίο που 'χα διαβάσει τότε, για τον γέρο που διάβαζε ιστορίες αγάπης, θυμάμαι ότι δεν μου 'χε αρέσει καθόλου. Τα υπόλοιπά του, όπως και το Όνομα Ταυρομάχου, όμως [...]

      Libro sólido de Sepúlveda.Cuando estaba en el colegio tuve que leer de su autoría “Un viejo que leía novelas de amor”, “Patagonia Express” y “Nombre de torero”, y hace mucho tenía ganas de releer este último porque si bien me acordaba muy poco de la historia, sí me acodaba muy bien que me había gustado, y esta vez no ha sido lo contrario. No hay que mentirnos y decir que sea una novela negra de mucha complejidad, pero es una lectura ligera y entretenida, siento que todos los [...]

      From weeksnotice/2011/If you like Paco Ignacio Taibo II, then you may well like Luis Sepúlveda's The Name of a Bullfighter. In fact, Sepúlveda thanks his friend Taibo. The book is so similar in style: hardboiled crime fiction that is much more intent on evoking images, even very political ones, than on creating intricate plots. What makes Sepúlveda intriguing is that his theme is Chile as it moved from dictatorship to democracy, and that makes the book darker than Taibo's. The author was exil [...]

      [2,5 estrelas]Foi uma leitura bastante fora do meu género habitual, motivada por um lado por Luís Sepúlveda ser um autor frequentemente lido e elogiado por algumas pessoas que admiro, e por outro por no desafio da Volta do Mundo em livros ter calhado a vez ao Chile.Arrisquei a minha estreia com o autor com o Nome de Toureiro, que me foi oferecido no Natal passado. Como é um livro pequenino, intercalei-o com outros e fui lendo aos poucos. Lê-se bem e vai introduzindo várias épocas, países [...]

      Hasta ahora y solo me queda por acabar Historia de una gaviota, la otra de gatos y Un viejo que srá la última que lea a lo que iba, la que más me ha gustado.Es una novela negra de lo más entretenida. Ignoro qué condiciones hay que cumplir para que una novela se considere negra así que ennumero: hay un misterio, un detective de vuelta de todo con un fondo moral a prueba de bombas porque el hombre trabaja y vive como un asceta para mantener a un amor desgraciado (no cuento nada), vive en los [...]

      Un alt roman de dimensiuni mici. Acțiunea se petrece la finalul Războiului Rece. Juan Belmonte are nume de toreador, fapt menționat de fiecare persoană căreia i se prezintă. Numele acesta apare și intr-un roman al lui Hemingway.Belmonte e nevoit să revină în Chile pentru a căuta o fabuloasă comoară medievală furata în timpul naziștilor. În același scop este trimis și personajul secundar al cărții, Frank Galinsky, un agent Stasi pe vremuri dar acum șomer.Imaginea prezentată [...]

      Não me lembro de ter alguma vez relido um livro! Escolhi este (comprado em 1999) para retornar a este magnífico prazer, após ausência demasiado prolongada de talvez um ano. O universo Sepúlveda, desta vez pela mão de Belmonte, leva-nos ao ambiente secreto do após queda Muro de Berlim, em busca de um tesouro escondido pelos nazis, na argentina. Além disso, Sepúlveda analisa de forma brilhante a decadência e queda dos regimes ditatoriais, sob o vento da nova esperança que libertou país [...]

      In the tradition of "livre noir", this intricate story about the lost golden coins stolen by two Nazi policemen and all the persecution and adventure it creates decades after, following the fall of the Iron curtain, is full of emotion and historical detail.I was relieved that the story has nothing to do with toreadors (bull fighters) - it is only the character's name that is the same as a supposed famous ToreadorThe plot is incredible and the main character, as usually, reminds the reader of its [...]

      Cinq étoiles parce que Sepùlveda, parce que son écriture, parce que " Le vieux qui lisait des romans d'amours" est dans le top 5 des livres qui ont changés ma vie. Ici un polar mais plutôt un roman pour ma part sur fond de politique sud américaine. L'histoire se situe dans les années 90, après la chute du mur en Allemagne et deux hommes dignes des personnages typiques du polar - seuls, esseulés, au fond du trou et un peu violents de nature - sont engagés par des parties adverses pour r [...]

      Si bien al principio el libro me pareció algo aburrido, conforme van avanzando las páginas, los capítulos, y con ello las partes se va volviendo más interesante poco a poco. Me causó confusión en ciertas partes sobre todo con los nombres y apodos de algunos personajes, y (❌alerta de spoiler❌) el final deja con la sensación de "¿Y luego que? 😱" (❌Fin spoiler❌) Aún asi, el libro da mucho para pensar, si se lo analiza y se empatiza con los diferentes personajes y sus historias.P [...]

      Okay, so the guy is named after Hemingway's bullfighter. I'm going to need a little more information to find that fascinating.As an assassin/mystery/detective/WWII story, it is uninteresting. Though this could have been fixed by reorganizing the sequencing of several chapters. Right now, the audience is far ahead of the narrator, and it becomes rather tedious to wait for the characters to catch up to what we know.What I did find interesting were the bits about modern-day racism in Germany. Here' [...]

      Es una historia que jira entornó la desaparición de unas monedas de oro que habían sido robadas al ejército Nazi durante la 2a guerra mundial por dos soldados del ejército alemán; uno de ellos escapo hacia América y el otro fue capturado y mantenido en prisión, siendo torturado para que revelara la ubicación de su compañero que había escapado con las monedas. Así es que después de 50 años, y a raíz de la muerte del soldado prisionero, se comienza una búsqueda del paradero del las [...]

      This has nothing in common with "The Old Man Who Read Love Stories." Every character is either a tough as nails mercenary, a complete push over or a corrupt and powerful overlord. From start to finish it feels like a horrible screenplay; you wouldn't guess that Sepulveda can tell a story with charm, innocence and memorable detail.When I retrieve my copy of the book, I'll add a few quotes to illustrate the "hard-boiled" internal monologue of the protagonist. That should be enough to put anyone of [...]

      Ce lo si beve in due orette scarse (nel mio caso in una fila in banca e in mezza pausa pranzo al parco) anche grazie alle sue 70 pagine scarse. Ma quello che si beve è un ottimo cocktail di letteratura: un piccolo "giallo", sentimenti e città.Da leggere."Che diavolo, era arrivata anche per me l'ora di ritirarmi.

      Totally different from The Old Man Who Read Love Stories. Sepulveda wrote a noir, hard boiled post-Berlin wall treasure hunt with characters that have nothing or very little to lose. Hard, rough but smart characters. Hard men that spent their lives fighting, plotting, surviving. The lead character is as dangerous as the rest of them but still has a tiny part of his soul alive somewhere inside. Sepulveda writes compelling characters, he shows you, doesn't tell you. You go along for the last ride [...]

      Hot off the heels of reading his first novel I decided to grab this thriller by Sepúlveda. A good book although it doesn't have quite the charm of The Old Man Who Read Love Stories but still interesting.Aside from saying I liked it I don't have too much to say. Well, I guess I noticed the recurring references to torture and failed socialist revolutions and I wondered how much of Sepúlveda's life was on display. I have two more books on hold a the public library of his, one a children's book an [...]

Solo una delle due guardie riesce però a raggiungere la meta e passerà la vita ad attendere l'arrivo dell'amico senza mai toccare il tesoroettodeilettori/

      Una historia de espias, guerra y personajes perdientes. A veces tener un nombre de torero puede servir a algo. Una novela muy apasionante y que logra capturar la esencia de los cuentos de accion a travez de dos continentes.

      This book fascinated me. I am a huge fan of political thrillers but I also received a history lesson in Chile's tormented past. I highly recommend this writer. In translation, the prose is lovely and lively. The plot quite consuming.

      Not the best Sepúlveda, I've got to say. Kind of boring and a bit senseless. Still this writer can't really write badly so it's always an enjoyable read.

      EL final de la segunda guerra mundial es el principio de esta historia. Donde el robo de un tesoro ha sido tejido por la amistad, pero roto por la búsqueda implacable de un ex-marxista y ex-stasi.
