The writing of Javier Cercas stands out not only due to its style and narration, but also to the mix of genres that always seem to come together in his books and to the natural flow between fiction and non-fiction. His novels almost always have an essay-like component, and often include chronicles, false autobiographies and literary and historical discussions.

Ésta es la historia de una amistad, una amistad que empieza en 1987 cuando el narrador, un joven aspirante a novelista, viaja a una universidad del Medio Oeste estadounidense y conoce a Rodney Falk, su compañero de despacho, un ex combatiente de Vietnam huraño e inabordable, ferozmente lúcido y corroído en secreto por su pasado. Pero ésta es también la historia de una experiencia radical en el abismo indescifrable del mal y la culpa, que el propio narrador sólo logrará entender y asumir años más tarde, como en una fulguración, cuando conozca el éxito y lo que éste tiene de corrupción insidiosa. After the traditional bestseller Soldiers of Salamis, Cercas returns with a fascinating novel about the force of evil and the corruption of success.

I loved it and I love all books I read of Javier Cercas. This one is not about the Civil War but it's about himself and about his friend, an ex Vietnam soldier.

excellent condition, fast service. not my favorite Cercas novel but a good entry novel for those who are not familiar with this excellent Spanish novelist.

This novel contains apparently some of autobiography and so, mentions sometimes his previous work, "Soldados de Salamina".

Because the protagonist is, more or less, a copy of the author, at first, a young aspirant to writer. At the beginning he works and survives poorly in Barcelona. A teacher and scholar from these university recommends him for a vacancy as Spanish language and literature teacher in a village of the USA near Chicago.

There, his economical situation is better, and he knows the American country and another people, but the most important, which becomes a friend, is Rodney Falk. Rodney, 41 years old, more ten years older than the young Spanish, is an ex - combatant of Vietnam War and prey of terrible sense of guilt owing his war past. He had a brother killed in that war before he decided to change his destination in Vietnam from a business desk to a special hard fighting group. Rodney's father, a widow physician, is a right man, but he doesn't understand fully the troubles of his son, because himself was a soldier during World War II and he thinks Vietnam was a similar war. Perhaps owing to loneliness, Rodney and the author trust one in another. Rodney marries and gets some jobs, but his remorse and feeling of guilt make sterile his efforts. He drinks and has several psychiatric crisis.

Two years later, the author returns to Spain, works hard, writes "Soldados de Salamina", a novel that deals with an episode of Spanish Civil War that becomes a success at the level of Spain. The novel is translated and known also in USA and in the literary world, and after a sort of period of big economical and social recognizing, including some conjugal infidelities, one night after a hard discussion the wife and little child of the author results killed in a car accident, so, he falls in a deep depression and lives isolated for a time, but then, Rodney reappears in travelling to Spain, so the two old friends have an brief encounter in Madrid when finally Rodney tells him his full story and returns to the USA. The end is tragic and the Spanish author returns to the USA when he has a meeting with Rodney's wife and with his old American friends: some have succeeded in life, some not.

I read a lot of fiction in Spanish and this, along with Soldados de Salamina, are two of my favorites. The novel is well written and continues to build and build throughout, making you feel as though you've been through something catastrophic by the end. From a psychological standpoint, it's fascinating, up there with Crime and Punishment. I'm from the Midwest, so I found Cercas' depiction of a college town in Illinois that much more interesting. I feel like he really got the culture right, and loved the references to Dylan's "It's alright Ma". I rarely have the urge to contact an author after finishing a novel, but tried to no avail after reading this one.

Primero, perdoname si mi espanol no es perfecto; no soy hablante nativo, pero he estudiado el idioma por nueve anos.

Yo habia leido Soldados de Salamina en uno de mis cursos de espanol, y me gustaba ese libro mucho. Asi que, cuando me entere de que Cercas habia escrito una novela nueva, lo compre lo mas pronto posible. Como estudiante de espanol, este libro fue muy denso para leer. Yo podia comprender los sucesos del trama, pero creo que perdi muchos de los detalles. Ademas, me sentia bastante aburrida durante las tres primeras partes del libro. Casi era un trabajo para leerlo. Pero empezo a interesarme durante la cuarta (y ultima) parte. Entonces yo no podia dejar de leerlo. Sin embargo, la ultima pagina de la novela me dejo con el sentimiento de que Cercas no habia encontrado una manera de terminar el libro y entonces simplemente dejo de escribirlo.

En sumo, no es un libro malo, pero yo recomendaria Soldados de Salamina en vez de este.

This novel can be better understood if we also read Sol de medianoche (Midnight sun) by the Puerto Rican writer Edgardo Rodríguez Juliá. The plots are very similar and Cercas had reviewed Rodríguez Juliá's novel ten years before La velocidad de la luz (The Speed of Light) came to light.
