    Barcelona after the death of Francisco Franco in 1975 This book was written by Manuel Varquez Montalban 1939 2003 , a popular Spanish novelist, poet, gastronome among other things If Agatha Christie had her Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, Montalban had his Pepe Carvalho I would not have bought this book if this was not included in the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.The story revolves around the mystery of the death of a 50 year old man, Stuart Pedrell He is a filthy rich businessman who hits midlife crisis and so he decides to go to Polynesia or what they call here as Southern Seas. There is no mention of why in the book but it seems that aging men in Spain in the 70 s have the option to go, without leaving a trace, somewhere and start their lives anew However, the problem is that after a year or so, Pedrell is seen dead in a tenement block in a rundown area in Barcelona So, the wealthy widow of Pedrell hires Carvalho to find out what happened.Then the rest of the book is about Ca...

    Los mares del Sur acabado e eu a perguntar me o que levou a minha m e a comprar este livro Pior ainda, tenho de me perguntar por alma de quem que fui ler este livro.Pois, n o gostei Nunca tinha lido nada do se or V zquez Montalb n e n o fiquei com vontade de repetir.Achei a hist ria chata, embora seja sobre um crime cometido e a sua investiga o, e n o gostei das personagens O detective Pepe Carvalho l se como em portugu s n o me fascinou, mesmo sendo um amante de literatura e de c es Ali s, nenhuma personagem conseguiu cativar me o suficiente.Embora a hist ria tenha alguns momentos engra ados, tamb m teve partes em que me senti completamente perdida Isto verificou se nos di logos, em que n o conseguia perceber quem estava a falar, e tamb m nas transi es das v rias partes da hist ria o livro na tem cap tulos , nas quais nem sempre havia pontos de refer ncia para me situa...

    Il quarto caso di Pepe Carvalho del grande Manuel V zquez Montalb n, sto leggendo i libri in ordine cronologico e per adesso il migliore di tutti, al solo pensiero di sapere che mi mancano ancora 22 romanzi da leggere, godo del piacere e non vedo l ora di immettermi nel prossimo caso.In questa storia lo assumono per indagare l ultimo anno della vita di un investitore molto ricco, che era sparito con il racconto di andare ai mari del sud la Polinesia di Gauguin , e poi il suo corpo stato trovato accoltellato in un appezzamento di terreno fuori Barcellona.Si potrebbe considerare anche un romanzo storico, stato scritto e ambientato nel 1979, durante gli anni della transizione spagnola dal Franchismo alla democrazia con le sue prime elezione.I personaggi sono gi parte del mio immaginario letterario, dal eccentrico Pepe Carvalho, irruente gourmet e amante delle donne e del sesso, i suoi casi si sviluppano come storie secondarie alle sue scopate e l...

    Would give this stars than I normally would a mystery The author is literate, draws character with great deftness, and is entertaining as can be He deserves kudos for this description of a victim who once wanted to be a writer He used to say that he was too much of a perfectionist But I think it was because he couldn t find a style That h...

    Los Mares del Sur Manuel V zquez Montalb n available at your local library It s always harder for me when I don t know the author, and even harder when, after reading the book, I am puzzled as to whether I liked it or not Mares do Sul is a perfect example of that Nothing wrong with the bookwell, if I said there was nothing, I d probably be lying This is one of those which I can t say I disliked, but I do have a lot of issues with it.Mares do Sul is according to the man s Wikipedia one of the first books in the Pepe Carvalho saga, if you can call it that Most of Montalban s work was devoted to exploring the stories and work, obviously of this 50 year old guy Now, he s not just any dude, he s probably the first protagonist of a crime novel that fails completely at gathering my sympathy.He s sold to us as very charming, with his vast culture, love of fine cuisine and blunt manner of speaking In my mind, however, he s simply grumpy, obsessed with everyone s political standing and devoid of any kind of moral He treats the women he meets like utter shite He supposedly has one girlfriend, but he does not hesitate to fuck the teenage daughter of one of his most important clients, regardless of her many issues She s a heavy user of all kinds of drugs and due to the death of her father whi...

    La novela m s conocida, y m s apreciada por los cr ticos, de la serie Carvalho Como cualquier premio Planeta fue xito de ventas y, seamos ben volos, de lectores Pero el tiempo, se que en ocasiones da una p tina de brillantez a aquello que no fue entendido en su momento, convierte en lectura anacr nica Los mares del sur Al menos sa es la sensaci n que queda tras leer el primer episodio de la novela Un episodio fuera de lugar pues cualquier otra presentaci n del caso a investigar hubiera valido ah to hasta el hast o de palabras soeces, de jerga desfasada A partir de ah la novela sigue otros derroteros y es cuando cobra vida nueva tanto el comienzo como el resto del la obra De algunos libros se dice que son intemporales ste no es el caso Los mares del sur es una novela muy temporal que hablaba directamente a los lectores de finales de la d cada de los a os setenta en Espa a y que permite retroceder en el tiempo a los lectores actuales Afirmaba Baroja El Quijote da m s impresi n de la Espa a de su tiempo que ninguna obra de los historiadores nuestros Las figuras de cera , Pr logo Quiz la afirmaci n sea exagerada para esta novela de V zquez Montalb n pero entre sus p ginas se puede visitar la Barcelona de hace cuarenta a os lenguaje cheli , barrios suburbiales construidos una o dos d cadas antes, activismo pol tico, menci n al terrorismo de ETA, la nueva clase media, Algunas concesiones comerciales del autor son evidentes pero la trama policiaca es cor...

    My first Montalban book I am not sure I liked the story but I liked the book I was attracted to it by Barcelona I wanted to read something else about Barcelona apart from the books of Carlos Ruiz Zafon Zafon, although younger, describes an age of Barcelona before him and mostly before Montalban s.Montalban, a socialist and a gastronomer, as well as a scholar and poet, describes a Barcelona of bourgeois decay or so he thinks and his main character, detective Pepe Carvalho, seems to be immersed in it although from a critical standpoint The southern seas is but an allegory to the unprivileged part of the city I find the way Montalban describes human characters really powerful And the continuous references to the Spanish cuisine, made me salivate all too often His prose is advance and complex than the usual crime store prose But the story is linear and unfolds without too much excitement or suspense More with an intend...

    Odd book At times, hilarious Couldn t entirely connect with it and was never super involved in the mystery Carvalho is sort of despicable but also great, in a terrible way.
