How can anyone like it? — 6 years ago
Just another girl frustrated by her latest reading comprehension, you might say. But no, this book wasn’t as bad as Black Box and The intimate Book of Grammar, and it still was one of the worst novels I’ve ever read. Why?
1. no CHARACTERS
the girl- she’s just a nice girl who cooks all day long and do even more stupid things that what other 17 year old boring girls do in drama tv shows of the afternoon.
the boy- no one! how can this be possible?! this boy has no family known (his father disappears mysteriously after the marriage), no hobbies or characteristics. His only part in the story is to love Tita and act like a total jerk (to my opinion…) trying to impress her (wow! she’s beautiful! now we’re going to have sex or what?).
everyone else- streotypes all together… boring, unfunny, not very emotionally comlicated. Bla.
He loves her from a first sight (wow! amazing!).He tells her he has a huge crash on her in the kitchen. It wasn’t ment to be so, but i couldn’t help myself laughing out loud. It gets even worse- the boy’s family has nothing to say. Only the mother wants the daughter to take care of her- hello!! ever heard of running away?!
One of the most sadistic and still funny scences is when the middle daughter showers, and the shower is on fire. She has to run through the field for some reason, and then a horny General notices her, pulls her to his horse and… u know, fucks her…. on the horse. The hero and her boy look beyond the window at this terrible act (the girl is 15) and want some of it too. Then the couple escapes and the General still leaves her to work as a prostitude. She loves him, and when he returns he makes her a general too. Huh? just wait.
u find better, more intersting plots in original mexican shows for house wives. The story also ends by deus ex machina, a terribly funny one (it supposes to be extremely sad). I thank god it was over.
Shit, now our teacher is gonna force me watching the movie.
