      Habla Jaime Fern ndez en en este art culo de cada vez nos es m s dif cil pararnos a leer un libro de m s de quinientas p ginas Incluso a los escritores se les hace m s cuesta arriba emboscarse en la escritura de una novela de esas dimensiones A no ser que uno est hecho, creo, de la misma pasta que Stephen King, Abercrombie, etc, autores que escriben buenos tochos sin despeinarse A pesar de lo anterior, creo que hay esperanza Hay cr os que est n leyendo con 11 a os libros de Harry Potter y simila [...]

      The subtitle for this book should be Two Stories of Married Women, Their Men, Their Aunts, Some Other People, and All of Their Crazy This is a massive book and I m surprised that it took Gald s just a year to write it There are a lot of characters here, a lot of different plot lines, all interconnected yet separate, and all quite enjoyable to read Some call him the Spanish Dickens, and that s fine, but I feel like Gald s is on a planet of his own Maybe it s a cultural thing, but this book felt r [...]

      I put off reading this book for years because of its length It began a bit slowly with the focus on the Santa Cruz family Once the focus changed to Fortunata and her family and acquaintances, the characters really came to life for me The last few chapters are breathless Fortunata and Jacinta is well worth the time needed for the read.

      S que puede parecer extra o gastar tiempo escribiendo una rese a sobre un libro tan manido y con una fama tan tostonera como Fortunata y Jacinta Pero, sinceramente, me da igual Quiero haceros cambiar de opini n.Empecemos por el principio Fortunata y Jacinta es la obra m s reconocida de Benito P rez Gald s junto con La Regenta de Clar n , la m s alabada del Realismo espa ol despu s del Quijote, la novela m s importante de la literatura en Espa a Y mucha gente no estar de acuerdo con eso Bueno, pu [...]

      Esta novela cuenta la historia de dos mujeres, Fortunata y Jacinta, y su relaci n con un hombre, Juanito de Santa Cruz Exquisitamente escrita, describe en gran detalle y con un humor particular caracteres y situaciones en Madrid a finales del siglo XIX Es realmente una obra maestra y muy compleja ya que aborda temas como efectos de la pobreza especialmente en lo relativo a la moral, el papel de la mujer, la maternidad, el machismo, la religi n, y el contexto pol tico de la poca, entre otros Una [...]

      Superb and surprisingly modern in every sense Galdos is right up there with the best and yet remained out of my ken until this past year Such is the American disdain for foreign authors.

      This is a fabulously written book about everything that was happening at the turn of the century in Spain centered around a small community of relationships The language usage is spectacular

      I feel as though I ve been living in Madrid for the past week while reading this What an author Gald s is My thoughts are completely disjointed right now as I vejustfinished reading the last page a moment ago So This is a draft of a review right now The response from the famous judge of literary works was that it had the makings of a play or a novel, although in his opinion the artistic texture wouldn t be especially attractive unless it were warped in places so that the vulgarity of life might [...]

      Just finished it today, I m actually kinda sad that it s done, over 800 pages, and I actually wouldn t have minded if it went longer This is a really fabulous book about 19th century Spain, particularly the intrigue and complexities of society in Madrid Galdos talks about all layers of society, from the very bottom to the top His grasp of society is very much like Dickens or Balzac in its complex scope Galdos writing style is very vivid and energetic, so it s hard to get bored while your reading [...]

    16. Tiffany on said:

      I kind of feel like this might be considered a classic because it s sooooooooooo long I mean, sure, the story of the two women in one man s life his wife and his mistress and their lives outside of him is an interesting premise, and how their lives overlap makes for a good story However, does it have to be 800 pages long Especially because some of those pages are about people outside of this immediate love triangle I m not saying you can t have other characters, and I m not saying you can t talk [...]

      Although it took me one year to read the entire 818 pages, I really did enjoy it and I FINISHED IT TODAY This giant book is the story of two women who were in love with the same man a cad, by the way The characters were memorable for their antics and their personalities From the saint who went around helping all kinds of people, collecting money and articles from merchants and builders to construct her orphanage, to Maximilliano who went through many different personality disorders The one thing [...]

    18. Ricardo on said:

      I recently re read this after many years The only other time I had read it was while I was taking a graduate seminar on Gald s This time I was able to read it at a leisurely pace, and I really enjoyed it I was most impressed with the way Gald s creates such a complex psychology for the main character, Fortunata The other people in her world are constantly trying to pigeonhole her, drawing on stereotypes of immoral women taken from religion and or literature, yet she resists such categorization I [...]

    19. Diego on said:

      Gald s es un absoluto maestro Recomendabil simo, no s lo por la belleza de su lenguaje sino tambi n por la profundidad del estudio de la condici n humana y la acuarela que poco a poco va bosquejando del Madrid del siglo pasado La historia est contada con ritmo cambiante y diferentes registros de humor Algunas descripciones de personajes son de partirse de risa Pero en el fondo, siempre subyace un tono triste y tr gico.

    20. Kathleen on said:

      I had my Spanish seminar read this during the past semester, and wanted to recommend the English translation for those who like 19th century literature There aren t many English translations of Galdos s novels, and he was the greatest author of 19th century Spain He gives a great panorama of Madrid society His novels give a much complex representation of social inter relations in general and women in particular than Dickens, and his picture of society isn t as grim as Zola s.

    21. Hana on said:

      Set in Madrid in the late 19th century It s very much a book of Spain, where the day is interrupted by siesta, everyone comes out to stroll the streets after dusk, and suppertime starts at around 10PM Do not start this novel if you re not willing to spend at least a few weeks on it neglectedbooks p 1277

    22. Dan on said:

      There is no human being, no matter how despicable he may seem, who cannot stand out in something This line from early in the novel is spoken in relation to the character Izquierdo, a useless man up to that point , who is a braggart but also surrogate father to a little boy, the near feral Pitsuo The line is interesting because while at first glance it might seem a positive statement it could be an internet platitude Gald s does not actually say that the something anyone can stand out in would be [...]

      I have read countless 19th century novels, and was amazed to finally, after years of giving up, find one that felt fresh and different I am at a point where I put down a book that has too many tired cliches, especially concerning women Fortunata and Jacinta has many of the staples of French 19th century literature, and especially reminded me of Zola and Balzac It is not afraid of grime, of poverty, of moral relativity, or social outcasts It also brought to mind Dostoevsky I really enjoyed the ca [...]

    25. Monty Milne on said:

      Utterly engrossing It easily stands comparison with Dickens, Balzac, or Tolstoy I am ashamed I had never heard of the author until very recently There are two particularly difficult problems facing the translator how to render the very varied narrative register of characters from a wide social range, and how to deal with the subtleties of tu usted In the first case, some of the plebeian voices speak with American vulgarisms which some may find odd or grating although they serve the purpose In t [...]

    28. Tim and Popie Stafford on said:

      Written in 1887, this book deserves to be on the list of outstanding nineteenth century literature How come I never heard of it I suspect it s a result of Spain s cultural isolation The writing is marvelous and inventive, full of irony and dry humor It s a fascinating sociological and psychological portrait of ordinary people, rich and poor, in Madrid in the 1870s Because the narrator has such a gossipy, relaxed and discursive voice, the plot takes hundreds of pages to get moving But the payoff [...]
