Ikeltje leest dat melding maakt van haar eigen dood kan ze er in eerste instantie de humor wel van inzien Maar dan verneemt ze dat 'haar' lichaam inmiddels door twee van haar kinderen is geïdentificeerd. An edited version of this article was first published as Book Review Lies by Enriue de Hériz on BlogcriticsorgHow much do you care about the truth How far are you willing to go to uncover the truth Conversely how far are you willing to cover up a lie These are just some of the uestions that this multi layered complex book tries to answer This book is the story of Isabel Azuera who is an aged anthropologist and her family At the age of 69 she suddenly announces to her family that she is heading to Guatemala While in Guatemala an accident happens and it is reported to her family back in Spain that she is dead However it is clear from the outset that she isn't after all she is one of the two narrators of the book There has been a case of mistaken identity but if you're an anthropologist whose field of study is funerals and death rites of various peoples around the world wouldn't faking one's death be the perfect etude for studying how one's family reacts to one's deathSo yes Isabel is dead from the perspective of her family but in reality she is well and alive in Guatemala The other narrator of the book is her daughter Serena who is dealing with the death of her mother in addition to her own lies As the book unravels with the narrative being bounced from Isabel to Serena and back the reader discovers the various lies that were made to sustain the whole family And somehow in the course of the novel the reader in this case me is made to reconsider whether lying is really a bad thing or not Because seriously would you rather lie if by doing so it buys you peace of mind If by doing so it gives you cultural stability If by doing so it preserves your sanity If by doing so you can explain personal historical events that would otherwise have no explanation There are plenty of lies that are discussed in this book the alleged death of Isabel Azuera is just one of them Did Pablo Isabel's son really see the remains of her mother in Guatemala Did Julio a painter and Isabel's husband really paint the Russian woman who was their neighbor in rural Spain Is the Russian woman really Russian There are plenty of stories in this book stories that surround the family stories that are elevated to the status of legends and truth be told one will wonder whether these are truths or fabrications as well Needless to say I enjoyed the book I should say however that the beginning was a little disengaging It took a while before I looked forward to turning the page It was a slow starter but after a few dozen pages and I was hooked I am seeing a pattern with these Spanish novelists most novels I read from Spain are dense complex and have the ability to make me think twice before moving on Carlos Ruiz Zafon's Shadow of the Wind and Enriue Joven's The Book of God and Physics are just a few other books that come to mind And yes I seem to be reading uite a few philosophical novels recently This is the second novel that made me uestion the veritability of truth the first one was Life of Pi by Yann Martel So yes I have a favorable impression of this book It made me think and it made me appreciate the th

Mentira AUTHOR Enrique de HérIsabel een antropologe van bijna 70 die is gespecialiseerd in begrafenisrituelen van primitieve volkeren reist in haar eentje naar de jungle van Guatamala Wanneer dicht bij haar verblijfplaats een Duitse. A very interesting novel I kept wanting to underline passages concerning lies and truth The anthropological details were wonderful and I liked the lightly sketched characterisations Some digressions seemed a little unnecessary particularly a subplot about a Russian couple that didn't uite go anywhere and a story of a long ago battle that was interesting but not wholly relevant Overall I suppose I'd call this novel uneven but worth the draggy bits I was genuinely moved towards the end too which doesn't happen very often I liked the feeling that the author was exploring ideas through his characters and also that he was uite elegantly creating his own story out of all the various subplots
