Books by Javier Marías
Los enamoramientos (2011)
language
English
3.48 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This has a fairly conventional murder plot, which doesn't really get going until almost halfway through the novel. Much of the book is taken up with philosophical speculations, of the female narrator, or various garrulous characters she meets. This probably sounds awful, but in f...
The Infatuations (2011)
language
English
3.48 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Lu à la suite du roman "Un coeur si blanc" écrit en 1993, "Comme les amours" (publié en français en 2013)dénote d'une plus grande maîtrise de l'écriture. L'intrigue y est distillée tout au long du roman et la lecture en est plus captivante cependant que le style de l'auteur deme...
Gli innamoramenti (2011)
language
English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Technically, I suppose you could call this a crime novel, but it's an odd one. There is a murder committed, but in the end the identity of the real murderer remains elusive as well as any motive for the killing. All that is certain is that there is a dead man. Doesn't this...
Os Enamoramentos (2011)
language
English
3.48 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Brilliant book. Stream of conscious narrative of a woman in her late 30's who observes the "perfect couple" at the Madrid cafe where she eats breakfast. This is a very unusual book, combining a possible murder, romantic relationships, and thoughts on life, death and relationshi...
Infatuations The (2000)
language
English
3.48 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: An exhausting yet compelling meditation on murder, facts, death, love. The excellent reader, Justine Eyre, gave the main character a creepy obsessive quality...like the protagonist of an Edgar Allan Poe story. I kept thinking she was going to talk herself into committing a crime....
While the Women Are Sleeping (1990)
language
English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Javier Marias is not primarily known as a writer of gothic fiction. This slender collection brings together a number of “dark tales” which he wrote over the past decades, including a number of fine ghost stories. Marias is a noted Anglophile and he tends to avoid shock and horr...
Your Face Tomorrow, Vol. 3: Poison, Shadow, and Farewell (2007)
language
English
4.52 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: �Uno no lo desea, pero prefiere siempre que muera el que est� a su lado, en una misi�n o una batalla, en una escuadrilla a�rea o bajo un bombardeo o en la trinchera cuando las hab�a, en un asalto callejero o en un atraco a una tienda o en un secuestro de turistas, en un terremoto...
Mala índole (1996)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The complete title of the book should be: Bad Nature, or With Elvis in Mexico, and How Difficult it is to Translate Angry People in a Brawl,or the Limitations of the Art of Translation, or the Impossibility of asking Elvis Presley Sing a Spanish Song with perfect Castillan or Cat...
Mientras ellas duermen (1990)
language
English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I was curious to see how a writer who can spend 50 pages on describing something that takes only five minutes does short stories. Pretty good, I have to say, given how generally disappointed I get with short stories. The writing is beautiful, and Marías's brilliance shines throug...
Mentre le donne dormono (1990)
language
English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This collection of ten short stories ranges from the earliest works of Javier Marias to stories that are very modern in their outlook. Each one of the stories in While the women are sleeping takes a macabre look at an incredibly wide range of subjects. From ghosts to lookalikes, ...
Tu rostro mañana (2000)
language
English
4.52 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Oh what a long strange poisonous fever dream it's been, oh what a shadowy dance with death (and war and violence). And still is, because it's like my head's all foggy and I'm having trouble gathering my thoughts. It's as if they're caught in Marías's intricate web of interrupted ...
