Pressestimmen

"When you finish, you . . . have gone through a total experience, a beautiful horror story, a horrifying story of beauty, a combination of Poe, Baudelaire, and Isak Dinesen, translated so agilely by Lysander Kemp that it seems to have been written in English."--Newsweek

3.0 von 5 Sternen This book was okay. 10. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Aura is a story which can sometimes be confusing, and which has no basic purpose. In the story, Felipe Montero is searching for a job and finds one reading and correcting memoirs for Senora Consuelo. As the story progresses, Felipe discovers Aura, the niece of Senora Consuelo, and sleeps with her, only to later sleep with Senora Consuelo thinking her to be Aura. This is where the story ends, leaving the ending hanging and the readers with a feeling that the story is not complete. This book, though short, can be very confusing at times, does not seem to have any closure, and the fact that it does not seem to have a basic purpose makes this a novel that is not for everybody.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a magical experience 3. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
It is hard to appreciate aura, if you read it just one time, but it was a great book the first time i read it. And after i read it twice, i found more magic in it, not only the strange happenings in the plot, that keeps you focused on the plot, or the culture carlos fuentes shows in this book, but the incredible detail he has.
I simply loved this book

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fiction at its best! 26. März 2000
Von betty
Format:Taschenbuch
Being a Latin-fiction lover, I found the story of "AURA" to be extremely interesting, and at the same time a bit inconclusive. Intersting because the plot, and the way it is described, tranported me to the world of "AURA". As I read it, I was almost feeling like I was the one inside that dark,humid room, and almost could hear the steps of the young guy going up the stairs.It's a book full of mystery, where predictions could be made,just to find out that your predictions are totally wrong. It's a book about what could happen in real life when an old woman is obsessed with beauty and youth.Inconclusive, because at the end you want the story to continue on,and leaves the reader wondering what would have happened if..... On another line, since the book was originally written in Spanish, I feel that if the reader is fluent in Spanish, the book should be read in that language. I have read it both in English and Spanish, and personally feel, that the Spanish publication offers a more accurate description of what the author intends to transmit to the reader.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Aura: the life of death and the death of life. 9. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Probably the best writing of Carlos Fuentes' prolific career, which now spans 45 years, "Aura" is the author's hauntingly gripping tale of witchcraft and literature in the context of inescapable love. Language is the true protagonist of this novelette, in which the author-narrator Felipe Montero is lured into Mexican history by a grotesque witch, Consuelo Llorente, an aged widow who employs exotic potions and animal sacrifices to capture her prey.
Contracted by Consuelo to put in order the papers of her deceased husband, Montero ends up reliving his life in subjugation to the exotic whims of the 109 year old widow. The story echoes the fate of "the publishing scoundrel" of Henry James's "The Aspern Papers" as well as that of Carlotta and Maximillian, the would-be emperors of Mexico enthroned by foreign powers in the 1860s. From the shadows of passion long past, Felipe and Consuelo die to be reborn to consummate their love for a brief moment.
Lysander Kemp's translation captures the beauty of language in which the two characters find love through artifice and deception. The irreality of their improbable passion, tenderly rendered by the translator, only heightens the grotesque sacrifice Montero willingly endures as he submits to destiny, in this case, the word.

Format:Taschenbuch
Carlos Fuentes' Aura was one of the most interesting books I have read in a while. His writing is generally simple, but the plot of Aura is very intriguing and detailed. The idea that Aura is the same person as her aunt Consuelo is easy to pick out, but the fact that the reader does not know what strange event will happen next is what makes Aura fun to read. The book is suspenseful and keeps the reader focused on the relationships Aura has with both Felipe Montero and her aunt, Consuelo. Carlos Fuentes combines strange events with everyday life such as when Felipe, Aura, and Consuelo are sitting at the dinner table eating and the two ladies are simultaneously making the same exact movements, which I found strangely interesting. Because I can understand basic spanish, I found reading parts of the spanish side of Aura interesting and saw the small differences between the spanish and english versions of the story. The book was generally interesting in it's own strange way and kept my full attention from cover to cover. I would recommend Carlos Fuentes' Aura to anyone who enjoys reading books with strange events and twisted plots.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Keeps you on your toes!
Fuentes keeps the reader close to the climax threshold and maintains to do it until the story wraps up. Suspense, and drama a good combination of both in Aura.
