    1. Ten a meses que no me enfrentaba a la pedanter a literaria como me ha sucedido en esta ocasi n Y es que darse a la lectura de Crist bal Nonato lo expone a uno a una c tedra monstruosa de pedanter a literaria, de cosas dichas por el simple placer de decirlas, de frases enormes que no conducen a ning n lado, de aliteraciones a cada p gina, de juegos y malabares de palabras embutidos un p rrafo s y uno no sin que tengan la menor relaci n con lo que se narra Un texto en el que Fuentes se da vuelo me [...]

    3. NINE MONTHS OF PLENITUDE In 1987 the celebrated Mexican writer, Carlos Fuentes, published a rollicking tour de force in Cristobal Nonato, the nine month long monologue of a child, on Cristobal Palomar The story goes like this Christobal s parents enter a contest promising fame, reward, and political power to that child born on October 12, 1992 and bearing a surname conate with Colon North American, Columbus For contest entrants, then, the given name Cristobal is a necessity The lengthy narrative [...]

    5. Wow Fuentes me gan de nuevo Una novela impresionante S , es cierto que, con Fuentes, uno siempre se pregunta si el se or quiere contarnos una historia o simplemente hacer alarde de un manejo perfecto del lenguaje, por lo que algunas de sus obras son aburridas, totalmente incomprensibles Pero aunque ac tambi n haya pasajes muy dif ciles de leer, la historia de Crist bal Nonato te atrapa completamente Los personajes son incre bles, llenos de significados los Four Jodiditos, Colasa, Matamoros, el p [...]



    6. Not my favorite Fuentes, but just so comic and playful and packed full of wit and allusions that it s hard not to love.


    7. Dense story with layers of depth Allegorical about the history and future of Mexico Fuentes is a great writer who seems to choose every word preceisely for each sentence I feel like I need to reread this one to get out of it and truly appreciate it s significance If you re interested in Mexico s culture and history, I d recommend this If you re just looking for a story to get lost in, I d look elsewhere.


    8. really good theres a lot of cool funny parts, like the mousetrap with a photo of cheese instead of real cheese, acapulco being destroyed by coyotes and a giant wave of shit garbage, insane american fascist preacher guy, the running joke of the statistician who lives in a closet, the misspellings of reagan s name throughout the book, the multiple instances of toothed vaginas, basically it rules.


    9. Christopher Unborn reminds me of Andrei Bely s Petersburg in the sense that Mexico City is personified Our history begins from the moment of conception With a dismal future ahead of us, we are protected for 9 months in the uterus from this ever increasing dismal presence We never asked to be born.


    10. I have marked this book read, although I haven t finished it I couldn t find the book s rythym, if there is such a thing, and was never pulled into the story or the characters I wish future readers the best of luck



    11. I m reading this for my next book group meeting About 100 pages in, it s reminding me of John Barth s The Tidewater Tales, and I love that book.



    12. A latin american Tristram Shandy but Carlos Fuentes is so masterful and beautiful and this book is very worth spending some time with
