"Escrita con elementos de novela histórica, relato de aventuras, autoficción, thriller y hasta folletín romántico, 35muertos recrea a partir de las desventuras de un perdedor, y de las decenas de personajes que se cruzan en su camino, la Colombia de finales del siglo XX. Revolucionarios sin revolución, guerrilleros machistas, pandilleros despechados, paramilitares cansados de tanta masacre, traquetos engañados por sus mujeres, exiliados en tierras europeas, desaparecidos y gente feliz y siempre en fiesta pueblan este libro donde en cada párrafo hierven juntas la vida y la tragedia."-- Back cover.
"Thirty five years of brutality are reconstructed by a narrator who always happens to be in the wrong place doing the wrong things. The misfortunes of this loser and the many characters that come across his path serve to recreate life in Colombia at the dusk of the 20th Century. Written with elements taken from historical fiction, adventure novel, self-fiction, thriller, and even romance serials, this unbridled journey through the heart of Colombia becomes a captivating literary excursion and provides new evidence that revelry, violence, exile, and oblivion continue to rule Latin America."-- amazon.com

a great book (novel)..Depressing, but amazing..read carefully to follow somewhat complicated disjunctions & remember ,recall characters of the somewhat picaresque style..it,s well worth the effort..Congratulations to author Sergio Alvarez for this novel that departs on an elevated level from the already outstanding tradition of the Latin American novel. Que suerte tendra el elegido para traducir la novela al ingles , si no esta ya traducida..& many other languages too.
