download Los años con Laura Díaz Carlos Fuentes ☆ 3 review summary à eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Carlos Fuentes Laura Diaz is a passionate character intimately connected to many historical event. I loved this book It is a big sweeping saga about a woman s life and reflecting upon the last century of Mexico True to Fuentes style it can be grandiose and very political and yet very intimate There were few dull parts considering its 600 pages It is the story of a woman s seventy some years so one needs time to tell the storyHer begins when she discovers a magical person in the forest glittering with jewels but she is corrected She came across a spiny ceiba tree with the sun glittering on those spines Things are not what they seem becomes a motif throughout the book Laura s life grows from her German Mexican family roots to her fame as a photographer of Mexico City So many changes take place in her seventy years especially the men in her life from her husband lovers children and grandchildren At the same time its a reflection of Mexican history as well Bear with it There are so many surprizes and I found the last chapters powerful and full of reflections on life and growing old At times it felt almost like Garcia Maruez in tone but never crosses into magical realismThen when its all over Fuentes adds his recognitions and explains how so much of the book is based on his own family I was floored Talk about life inspiring art Well done se or FuentesRead in Spanish
