    One thought on “The Queen of the South

    1. Kelly on said:

      There are three books to be found within this book, three major storylines to follow One is mostly well done, one is middling, but has issues, one is rather ridiculous, occasionally mildly offensive, and out of place The first, which I found mostly well done, is Perez Reverte s homage to the high adventure stories of the 19th century, specificially his modern update of The Count of Monte Cristo The Count is remade into a Mexican woman of the 21st century, who is tied to the Mexican drug cartels [...]

      I m on holiday hurrah This means it is time to turn my attention to the very important task of learning Spanish I made two New Year s Resolutions One was to learn some Spanish before the year was out, the other was to keep a running list of the books I have read on this here blog So, time to work on one of my resolutions.Instead of learning Spanish I have been reading The Queen of the South by Arturo Perez Reverte is the latest book that I have finished The best way to describe it is a page turn [...]

      I guess I m glad I read this, if only to satisfy a long burning curiosity about The Queen of the South that s been in the back of my head ever since my mom hid the book from me at age fifteen so I couldn t read the dirty parts for the record, Mom, I probably would have been able to handle it That said, it could have been a lot cooler than it is And considering the book is about a woman who goes on the run after being targeted by Mexican hitmen and eventually becomes the most powerful drug lord i [...]

      Gran libro Gran trabajo de investigaci n de Reverte Gran final Grandes reflexiones Grandes di logos En fin, otra genialidad a la que nos tiene acostumbrados este autor Hac a tiempo que no disfrutaba tanto de un libro, de sus personajes, su ambientaci n y su lenguaje De la trama en s , a n siendo un tema del que a priori no ten a ni idea Recomendado para todo aquel que disfrute con novelas de acci n con un trasfondo de ideas Gracias Reverte Chale.

    6. Allison on said:

      This book is a book for history lovers Anyone who wants the who how where when why will love the detail and precision with which every event in this book is told Unless you truly grew up in the culture about which it is written, and know about drug runs and border crossings and vacuum packing marijuana in bricks to stow away in speedboats, I would wager than Perez Reverte could convince any reader that he has done his homework And if you did grow up in that culture, perhaps that would merely str [...]

      Update, May 28, 2016 I gave this one a second try, after a lapse of some seven years, only because a review of it was needed for another site where the movie and telenovela adaptations are going to be reviewed later this year My first reading had gotten through Chapter 3 I d quit reading because I didn t like it, but figured that if it got no worse it would be bearable to finish, so fully intended to do so this time By the time I got into Chapter 7, however, for me the cumulative Ewww factor was [...]

      This was a good, solid read It reminded me of the Godfather series that I read years ago and loved I recommend to any readers that like Mario Puzo I did have an issue with the way the author changed up the point of view I would have liked if the whole story was told by Teresa Mendoza 1st person the entire time I was reading but the author switched it up He had the reporter 3rd person talking as well and I had to at times go back to re read certain parts so I could keep up with who is talking.I l [...]

      This story is told in two styles from an omniscient perspective following the main character, and from the first person point of view of a journalist researching her story At first I was quite bored by the latter story Later on, however, I began to feel like Perez Reverte was trying to coax me into a state of mind whereby I would begin to use Teresa Mendoza s story as a truer reality Throughout the book Teresa discovers that through books she can live fully, and understand her life by applying [...]

    13. Kim Kaso on said:

      This is a fascinating and beautifully written book about so many things On the surface, it is the tale of the unlikely rise of a young girl through the world of the drug trade, her survival and success But, as in any book by P rez Reverte, it is meticulously researched and crafted, and gives the reader layer upon layer Teresa Mendoza is a superb character, and the book uses everything from The Count of Monte Cristo to the narco corridos to illustrate both her examined and unexamined life I came [...]

      This would make a terrific movie I can see Salma Hayek as Teresa and maybe Angelina Jolie as her partner in crime As a book, however, it didn t work for me.I didn t like Teresa Throughout the entire novel, I could not muster any sympathy or like for her When her drug dealin, Cessna flying boyfriend is killed, Teresa runs for her life She finds safety in Spain and what does this chica do She finds another drug dealer boyfriend What follows is a lot of speed boat and helicopter high speed chases a [...]

    17. Harold on said:

      I ve read several of APR s books before and enjoyed them greatly, but for some reason thought this would be his commercial effort Maybe a little trashy and cliched Perhaps because of the Mexican novela on TV In any event I approached this as somewhat of a guilty pleasure, after watching the novela with subtiltles and being totally hooked I decided to read the book and see how closely the novela stuck to the plot It did, but threw in some extra characters to add to the melodrama The US tv series [...]

    18. Idaliz on said:

      I would actually give this book a rating of 3.5 This book was recommended to me by my older sister It was really hard for me to get too far in this book and force myself to continue because it was written, though very well detailed, a bit tedious It s as if the author got a little distracted and continued onto a few paragraphs about something a little off subject So it was all over the place, as intersting as I found that style, it was difficult to stay on track It wasn t until the second half o [...]

      Arturo P rez Reverte nos regala una historia muy amena y divertida con muchos gui os acerca de la cultura popular mexicana y no solo en materia de pol tica o narcotr fico si no con temas de libros, noticias o la misma m sica, exponiendo canciones muy populares que van en sincron a con la historia que nos cuenta el autor.Para mi es una gran sorpresa y me dej un buen sabor de boca este libro Recomendado en su totalidad si te encuentras familiarizado con los temas expuestos con anterioridad.

      A very interesting story that I believe I would have enjoyed without the journalistic viewpoint I am now interested in the television show and we ll watch it to compare it to the book I did enjoy the strong female characters altbeit drug dealers I also believe some of the story got lost in translation but the audio version did help in that area.

    23. Nick on said:

      I read the Spanish original, but I am writing here for a wider audience I approached the book with some skepticism Perez Reverte was known to me chiefly for his literary mysteries, in which the resolution falls short of the spectacular and artificial beginnings The Queen of the South seems to me to have the reverse problem The wind up to Teresa Mendoza s career aside from the fireworks of the opening, about which will be said takes too long and the part where she actually becomes the key transp [...]

      AMAZING I don t usually go for thrillers, but the female lead character is so complicated and so foreign to me that I became fascinated in trying to relate to her Cold, calculated, cunning, indestructible, she is the female drug cartel Bond Yet through the narrative we get to hear her vulnerability and her fragmented displacement of her fears and denial of her own desires The fantastic setting for the story and detailed description make you want to leave your day job and start running hash in Mo [...]
