Swedish Tango A Novel characters ↠ 109 Ke to the reality of their danger Octavio finds political asylum for the family in Sweden But for Salomé the path back to love is fraught with painful secrets and the knowledge that they can never go home again Previously published as Swedish Tango. This book was disappointing for me I loved the lost wife and I think this book had big potential but it just didn t work for me And I probably wouldn t have read it at all if I had known about the affair but I was already 34 of the way through before it happened The characters seemed too extreme they were either too idealistic and flighty or they were bitter and unforgiving which made them seem a little too unrealistic I did love the transition of the Chilean woman going from a naive girl who adored her husband completely to someone who had gone through the worst possible thing and had to work through this eye opening experience while also trying to find a way to forgive her husband I didn t really understand the point of the other two storylines and wish it had focused on the coup in Chile and the family there

Swedish Tango A Novel characters ↠ 109 Octavio Ribeiro loves truth beauty literature and above all else his wife Salomé As a student in Chile he courted her with the words of great poets and she fell in love with his fierce intelligence and uncompromising passion Then a sudden coup brin. BEFORE READING I am drawn to read this because the characters come from different cultures Chilean French and Finnish They live in Sweden as foreign exiles so Swedish customs will also be part of the picture The status of foreign exiles in Sweden is sure to be an interesting subject Further it concerns the overthrow of Allende in Chile and Pinochet s subseuent rule Finally I simply very much liked that style of writing found in the sampleNO SPOILERSWho might be interested in reading this book What is its central theme What side issues does it cover The prime theme is how people relate to each other in a family How do we achieve happiness Is it through chasing our own individual dreams or is it through the consideration of others in the family How do you balance these sometimes conflicting goals Of course there is no rule that fits all situations but these are the topics central to this book I believe each reader will have different responses to these central uestions and will agree and disagree with the different choices made by the various characters I believe the purpose of the book is not to show you the reader the right answer but to consider these uestions The ending clearly shows the author s point of view The reader need not agree The enjoyment is in the observation of how people react differently and in realizing that there is not set answer that is right for all And that we all make mistakesThe above central theme is delivered through a story focusing upon four characters with completely different backgrounds and countries of origin That is what originally drew me to the book I like books that show how individuals are changed by the historical events of turbulent times It is my belief that people are influenced by both their genes and the events of their lives People respond to a given event so differently It is this mix of these two forces that I find fascinating to observe Why does one child growing up with the same parents turn out so very different from his or her sibling How can one person live through a war and come out whole and able to appreciate life while another can never smile again Why does one person laugh at another s divergent opinion while another individual is saddened How do you love a person I am referring to both the physical sexual and psychological aspects How does our love toward our spouse change with time I absolutely adored the beginning scenes described in this book of how Octavio courted Salom She lived in a convent It was her job to collect the oranges from the orchard Well Octavio he caught sight of her and it was love at first sight So what does he do He collects oranges and in the navel of each one he inserts a poem And eventually they meet When you read of this fairy tale courting it is beautiful However do not expect a fairy tale story Love is not all sweet words But should a man make love differently to a woman after she had been abused Should he hold her differently gently to keep her from breaking page 273Every reader will immediately respond Well it depends on this or that or But you do not read these lines unmovedOther themes upon which this book focuses are the appropriate guidelines for psychological therapy including the relationship between psychologist and patient the status of political refugees and the difficulties of assimilation into a foreign culture survivors guilt physical abuse inflicted by corrupt regimes and the resultant psychological problems that arise Finnish War Children and the psychological problems that arise for those orphans who never regained contact with their biological parents the need to come to peace with our past how parents respond differently to each of their children what is kept secret and what is revealed in a relationship and the courage needed to relive horrible events of our past to ensure that the cruel events of history are brought to light All of these various themes are beautifully interwoven and each one draws you in When Kaja at two years of age travels alone from Finland to Sweden alone with numerous other scared and frightened Finnish children the writing puts you there on that boat with her and the others When no one claims her when one person is kind and another indifferent to her feelings you empathize The book grabs your emotions and it makes you think It has beautiful episodes and horrific episodes I like the mix My intention is that this review will help you decide if YOU want to read this book Do these themes interest you If the answer is yes the writing skills of the author will certainly draw you in I will read by the author This alone shows the degree to which I enjoyed the book There are so many different authors to test so I rarely read than one book by the same author no matter how good the book proved to be Her other books do not cover the same themes That is a plus too 0PS I know this is trivial but it annoyed me immensely A large part of the story takes place in V ster s Sweden This city is on the western tip of Lake M laren Stockholm is located on the eastern tip of this same lake The book spells this city Vester s It must be possible to put the two dots over the a thy managed to put the circle over the a They managed to spell G teborg correctly why not V ster s
