Angie ‘s review Nov 03, caapitan I purchased this book because it is set on the Island of Vieques where I live. I was hoping to get a further look at the people of Vieques, although set in a work of fiction, and of the place.
El Capitán de los Dormidos by Mayra Montero (2002, Hardcover)
And to an extent, the book fulfilled that interest, mentioning places I’ve been on the island and talking about a culture and what people did to survive. The politics become interesting as the main cast of characters are involved in the independence movement, but there is the complication of choosing to die for country or to live for family, while in the middle of that, there is a complicated love triangle.
All of this related from the point of view of an old man and his flashback child self. Reading this book also improved my Spanish vocabulary without dw grammatically too difficult to read.
Had I looked up more words, perhaps I’d have had dormudos better understanding of the plot, but I’ll be honest, I just wanted to get through the plot as I wasn’t in any way interested in the love triangle, the politics or the shenanigans of the main character as a child, probably because as it was presented from the main ptv of the child and children are often clueless as to what is going on, there was a serious lack of detail.
Then there was this deep horrible secret that the whole plot hinged capitaj and when I got to it at the very end, I frankly wasn’t shocked, simply because I was bored. I felt like the deep horrible secret was a really bad piece of gossip and would have liked to know caapitan about the politics or the people and less about the main character’s hate for a man he at one time loved.
