I was promised funny, but what I got didn t humour me in the slightest and, truthfully, the only reason I didn t DNF, was because this book was one of those reading challenge books I chose purposefully for this particular point But anyways, if my review looked like the book, then my review would look like this Day 1 18.

50 Checking out reviews for the boo Sin noticias de Gurb is one of those books that you could kick yourself for not thinking of the idea first not that I could have pulled off a minor master piece like this but still Written in the form of a diary of messages sent by an extraterrestrial who comes to earth, takes on human form s , and dryly narrates what he discovers about life here on earth or at least life in Barcelona Upon landing in Barcelona the unnamed leader sends his underling, Gurb, out to explore the terrain Gurb immediately goes AWOL and most of the book concerns the leader s search for his partner as it takes two beings to drive their spaceship While looking for Gurb the leader comments on dozens and dozens of aspects of life in this corner of the world No hay en toda la Tierra gente A good, quick, light, funny, laugh out loud read about two aliens One, Gurb, has vanished down a back alley in Barcelona in the form of Madonna The other, his superior, must find him Throw in lots of satire, shape shifting and witty observations and you have a perfect short novel.
Two quick things I live in Spain but don t trust my Spanish to read this in the original language however, yesterday I was at a friend s house and noticed this on the bookshelf in castellano Noticed that Gurb assumes the form of Marta Sanchez, which I thought was amusing Secondly can anyone recommend me any Mendoza Þ Sin noticias de Gurb Ù Entretenido y gracioso Advertencia riesgo de ataques de risa en el transporte p blico.
Hacia el 1721, Montesquieu public Lettres persanes, una famosa novela sat rica, en la que el protagonista, un viajante iran , pone una mirada asombrada y un tanto burlona sobre la sociedad francesa del Ancien R gime.
Eduardo Mendoza retoma esa tradici n literaria en esta novela corta, que se public en un principio por episodios en el diario El Pa s, unos meses antes de los Juegos Ol mpicos de Barcelona del 1992 Este libro, como un diario escrito al minuto, narra las aventuras y desventuras de un extraterrestre en la capital catalana, mientras est en busca de Gurb, su compa ero, tambi n extraviado en la Tierra.
Con este Don Quijote del espacio, Mendoza nos ofrece una novela picaresca, sat rica y par dica, hilarante en cada p gina Dir a que es, para la literatura espa ola, lo mismo que lo que es The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy par la lengua inglesa.
Y como siempre que algo altera la monoton a, la picaresca asomaba el hocico por todos los rinconesSi algo caracteriza a la risa es que, al igual que la tristeza, es personal e intransferible Intransferible Bueno, quiz sto ltimo no cu ntas veces no se r e uno con tan s lo o r la risa del de al lado Pero la risa en literatura tiene un matiz ligeramente distinto Con los libros c micos no hay t rmino medio o encantan, o repelen Por qu Porque cada autor, como persona nica que es, tiene un sentido del humor particular, y que ste coincida o no con el del lector es el factor m s determinante en la apreciaci n de las novelas de este g nero Hay quien r e con el humor absurdo y quien necesita algo m s de complejidad en las iron as No



Una joyarepito lo que dije antes.
Hasta hace poco, yo s lo conoc a la primera de Mendoza, la de Savolta, y ni me gust mucho ni me digust mucho Esta fue una selecci n de un club de libros, y es completamente distinta Hace tiempo que no leo nada que me haga re r a carcajadas a las 3 de la ma ana Creo que cada pa s debe nominar a un autor a que escriba semejante estudio humor stico de su pa s o su cultura.
