Tortuga (Mira debajo) Reviews
Tortuga (The Turtle) is a 16 year old boy who has broken his back. He is paralized, and taken far south to a crippled childrens hospital. I really can't tell you about this book. The hopelessnes and the joy in the hospital, and the patients who never get well, the horror, during the time of polio, the chidren in the wards, grips you in ways that you have never comprended before. The book is full of symbolism, dispair, and joy. There is no way to give you a short discription of this book.I will tell you I desperatly wanted the book to end, to find out what happend, and my soul never wanted it to end, because I don't think I will ever find another book like this.Depending on who you are, you will love and cherish this book, or cuss me.When I finished this book, I held it close, and cried. Then I wrote in it what it meant to me and gave it to the person who means the most to me. It was my most cherished possesion.
This is one of the best novels I have ever read, and I read a lot. But that probably means little to you without some context, so here are a few of my top picks in literature: Jane Eyre - I especially enjoyed the lively dialog in this book, but there is little not to like. Lolita - for many years this was my favorite, and I love Nabokov's writing style, even enjoying his introductions. 100 Years of Solitude - a magnificent intellectual and imaginary achievement, building and bringing to an end an entire universe of its own.The most obvious comparison here to Tortuga is 100 Years, since both are stories of societies living in isolation and infused with magic, and both are self-contained. But like Jane Eyre, Tortuga is full of lively and subtle conversation, beautifully written throughout, and shows the power of faith in and acceptance of others including their "flaws" - it is a fully human story. It's more difficult for me to find a similarity in the story line or the characters to Lolita, but there is an intellectual match in the way both books invite you to look beneath the surface of people who commit unspeakable acts, and again both are books where I often reread passages just to enjoy them again. All of these books bring smiles, laughs and tears, and it is impossible for me to say which of the four I like best - probably it is the one that is freshest in my mind at the time.I won't tell you much about the story itself, because it is really something that you should (yes you really should) read for yourself without the baggage of some inadequate retelling. I will tell you that while I just compared it with three other novels, it is really very different from any of those or any other book I have ever read. It has changed my view of the world and it can probably change yours as well. And it does that without telling you what you should do or think, but by helping you see more deeply into life and relationships with others. And at the same time it brings you an entertaining and heartfelt story filled with pain and joy, laughter and tears, loss and overcoming - in short everything that life offers.In case you have not figured this out yet, I really thing that you should read Tortuga, so do yourself a favor.
I can't begin to describe this book; I don't have Mr. Anaya's ability to bring the reader into my heart, to truly convey how the story makes me feel. I can describe the plot and the events, but other reviewers have done that better than I could. I can say that I spent short stretches of my childhood in hospitals, where I encountered other children who were misshapen and disabled, and I had my own physical challenges (though nothing approaching Tortuga's), and that I recognize the characters he weaves into us as we read. I can tell you that Mr. Anaya was THERE, and he takes the reader back with him---back to experience all the pain, suffering, humiliation, and also triumph. This is not a tale for the faint-hearted, nor for those who like everything to be sweetness and light throughout. There are moments of confusion, of pain and agony; moments of laughter and of sheer horror. And there is the laying bare of the human mind, psyche, heart, and soul, and finally, the dawning of understanding. And with the understanding comes the acceptance and ultimate triumph of Tortuga, the Turtle-boy becoming a man. Tortuga wins the fight to recover physically, but it is his recognition and acceptance of the responsibility he's been destined for that ennoble him and transform him into a man to be reckoned with in the world. You won't soon forget this story or these characters. It will burn itself into your soul with a fiery brand.
Tortuga follows in the footsteps of bless me ultima, one of the best novels covering the new Mexican experience. Mr. Anaya is in a league of his own when it comes to mixing folklore, myth, youth, the desert, our past, our future, all the while weaving his tale into one beautiful adventure we can readily identify with...gracias, hermano.
What a beautiful book! On the surface, it is a story about a boy who suffers a terrible injury that leaves him paralyzed and in a body cast. The book takes you on his journey of healing his body and soul. This book is poetry on every page. It is an homage to life itself. Read it and store it's wisdom for when you are in despair for it will give you the courage to keep on going.
I had problems with this book. Despite Anaya's reputation in the Chicano literary world, this novel was problematic for me: The pace of the plot was too slow. I didn't get a sense of the protagonist's age; if he was a teenager, his philosophical musing seemed to be those of a much older, mature person. The novel seemed a little too self-referential and self-indulgent. I liked "Ultima" much better. I suppose one should read this if one wants to read the New Mexico trilogy. I had a hard time getting to the end of the book.
