Junot Díaz Å This is How You Lose Her Book

Το Να πώς χάνεις μια γυναίκα είναι ένα βιβλίο για την απιστία αλλά κυρίως ένα βιβλίο για τη βασανιστική ανέφικτη δύναμη της αγάπης της επίμονης αγάπης της παράνομης αγάπης της αγάπης που σβήνει της μητρικής αγάπης Μια καταδικασμένη σχέση παραδέρνει σε μια παραλία του Αγίου Δομίνικου Στη λάβρα του πλυσταριού ενός νοσοκομείου του Νιου Τζέρσυ μια γυναίκα πλένει τα ρούχα του εραστή της και σκέφτεται τη σύζυγό του Στη Βοστόνη ένας άντρας αγορ This is how you lost me You gave me flat characters powered by preoccupations with sex and body parts especially bushy hair peppered the prose with Spanish words that were often slangy or derogatory and allowed superficial albeit energetic descriptions of shallow thoughtlessness to masuerade as gritty literary styleI am puzzled as to why I feel so far off the general opinion of the literary pundits who widely praise this book I do wonder if it is because of my utter lack of exposure to any Spanish or Hispanic culture That differs markedly from the USA where varying degrees of Hispanic influence are ubiuitous and this in turn may inform an American reader's interpretation and reaction Perhaps I lack the cultural tools to appreciate itNonetheless I didn't like it These stories left me either cold or irritated usually the latter and they were not redeemed by insight poetic prose unusual characters or stories I had the same response to Drown and hoped even expected that it was a one off but now I can say with certainty that I do not like Diaz's writing

Nine interlinked short tales chronicling ruined relationships cheating death family and  At the heart of these stories is the irrepressible irresistible Yunior a young hardhead whose longing for love is eualed only by his recklessness and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses artistic Alma; the aging Miss Lora; Magdalena who thinks all Dominican men are cheaters; and the love of his life whose heartbreak ultimately becomes his own“And that’s when I know it’s over As soon as you start thinking about the beginning it’s the end”This being my first read by Junot Diaz I was in for a pleasant surprise regarding the writing and the tempo of each tale The author specializes in making his short stories fly by However I had a hard time reading most of these tales of cheating and feeling literally zero remorse for it And even going so far as to say that it was just a mistake I have only one thing in mind for people that use that heinous excuse And I just wish the women in this collection could've listened to Dua Lipa's New Rules SourceSide note on the above song I recently discovered this feminist girl power bop and I'm completely digging it It's been on repeat for days now Not only is the aesthetic on point in the music video those color coordinations but Dua Lipa's singing voice is one not to be trifled withCircling back to the actual story collection While the first handful of stories were capturing and different enough to keep me interested once the narrator became the same one for each coming tale I grew uite over it Following Yunior from a teen to adulthood didn't end up working in my favour since his character wasn't that intriguing to see developed over the course of a number of stories And neither his family nor his romantic partners kept me intrigued enough so I was disappointed with the second half of this collectionThis Is How You Lose Her is however a striking introduction to the author's immaculately curated writing style I'm not sure however if I'll be eager to check out Junot Diaz's other books in the near future Mainly because the short stories left me extremely underwhelmed with the characters as a whole So only time will tell on this one255 stars  Note I'm an Affiliate If you're interested in buying This Is How You Lose Her just click on the image below to go through my link I'll make a small commission Support creators you love Buy a Coffee for nat bookspoils with
