5.0 von 5 Sternen García Márquez Magically Captures the Mind of a Dictator, 21. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
In his second novel, Gabriel García Márquez reinvents himself in the wonderful work of "Autumn of the Patriarch". The work took him 8 years to write, however the result was well worth the work. By using a stream of consiousness technique and constantly altering between first and third persons, García Márquez exhibits his techincal mastery. He transplants the reader into the mind and world of a dictator in an unnamed Latin American country. García Márquez really captures the mind and spirit of this solitary power. An important reading for understanding power in Latin America. Similar books include "Senor Presidente" by Miguel Angel Asturias and "Reasons of State" by Alejo Carpentier. This novel is particularly relevant with the circumstances surrounding ex-Chilean Dictator, Augusto Pinochet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tough reading, but hypnotic and brilliant, 28. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Autumn of the Patriarch (Taschenbuch)
Written during 1968-1975, Marquez has fashioned a grand narrative of a Caribbean tyrant caught in the prison of his own power, slowly losing it and dying (with shades of Lear and Macbeth).Garcia Marquez's theme is once again solitude. The language is more like a poem than a novel -- sentences run on for pages, changing voice several times before coming to a period. This style can be irritating, forcing re-reading to find out who is speaking or acting, but it also lends a dream-like, fluid quality that perfectly embodies the ambiguity of reason and truth. In this it is Post Modern. In it's surreal content and luxuriant sensual prose (the translation by Gregory Rabassa is an inspiration), it shows who is the father of Magical Realism. It is worth reading alone for the details -- a herniated testicle that whistles, the effete torturer listening to Bruckner records, the mighty dictator napping in a hammock under tamarind trees at his mother's house while his cabinet ministers argue the fine points of law, and the final act that brings ruin on his nation -- the sale of the sea (numbered and boxed for shipping) to foreign creditors.

4.0 von 5 Sternen How to surf the tidal wave of this book's confusion, 3. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Autumn of the Patriarch (Taschenbuch)
Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel, The Autumn of the Patriarch, threw me into the sea to which he constantly referred to. The frustration in the beginning gradually swept over me, just enough so that I was able to enjoy the content of the book. Placing me in the twisted world of a disillusioned government official did more than shock me. It intrigued me, forced me to consider the world outside of my own, and tossed me into the tidal wave of symbolism, metaphor, and stream-of-conscious sentence structure. I recommend this book so that you, the reader, are able to touch upon this story that shocked the literary world beyond its wildest imagination.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not to be missed!, 10. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Autumn of the Patriarch (Taschenbuch)
When I first began reading this book I must admit that I was confused by the stream of conciousness and one sentence chapters. But what a treat it was! It's rare the book that makes you stop to re-read a phrase to yourself while you exclaim, "Wow!" I recommend this book to anyone who has read Gabriel Garcia before. If not, read One hundred Years of Solitude before you pick this one up. You won't regret it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Marquez, 2. Dezember 1999
There are no words to describe this book. Or any other he wrote. You just have to read them and then you will know what I am talking about. I only have to say that he never missed once writting a book in all these years. Gabo is simply The great.
