Demasiado simple, nada nuevo, pero tampoco es un desastre y el lenguaje no es el mejor. No es de mi tipo. View 2 comments. El libro era de mi hermano y yo se lo sacaba a escondidas, jajaja. Supongo que fue mi primer acto de clandestinidad. No fue un acto muy interesante. En fin, jaja. No importa que sea como contexto, porque obvio, es el contexto View 1 comment.

Siempre espero lo peor. Quedo feliz. Y cuando llega, porque de que llega, llega, no me deprimo ni me decepciono. Es lo acostumbrado. Es lo normal. Es como es. Pero no necesariamente como debe ser. May 18, Mike Frost rated it really liked it. I've only read a few novels in Spanish, and I'd have to say that I enjoyed this one the most. Unabashedly riffing on the themes and plot of "The Catcher in the Rye," Mala Onda managed to still seem entirely fresh by mixing in the political backdrop of the constitutional referendum of that continued Pinochet's rule for another 8 years.

Matias, the Chilean Holden Caufield, is a decadent youth struggling with the phonies who surround him, all of whom, from his parents to his friends to his love interest, are more interested in themselves and their worldly pleasures than they are in what's going on with their government.

Matias fights to find a different way, but he never really has a chance. I loved the first person narrative, the Chilean slang, the Santiago setting with which I was so familiar, and the many 80s pop culture references, which highlighted the fact that this focus on "me" was not solely a Chilean malady.

A must read for anyone who has spent time in Chile. Jan 08, Adam rated it liked it. Sex drugs, and Pinochet. Jul 20, Daniela L. Y eso alcanza a doler un poco.

Fuguet got a lot better. Apr 13, Nataly Huerta diaz rated it did not like it. No me gusto para nada, los personajes tienen actitudes que me molestan, ademas que hubiera sido mas interesante si hablara de la clase baja o media de los 80's en el golpe militar no de la clase alta pff no me gusto :c.

This book was a really interesting view of the Pinochet era, especially in contrast with A Nation of Enemies , which I read before. Jun 09, Sebastian Guzman Garcia rated it it was amazing. Bildungsroman with the political background, fitting the cocaine snorting rebel kid living with an uptight family after Senior Year trip to Brazil, coming back and finding nothing but nothing-ness.

Every liberal teen would like reading this, finished it in two days. Oct 23, Maca rated it liked it.
