Item Description...
Translated to over 30 languages, this is perhaps Vargas Llosa's most violent book. Set in a military school in Lima, where an unwritten code of survival of the fittest is imposed. Here, he focuses on the brutality of military life and the strong pyramidal hierarchy that mirrors Peruvian society, where violence, exploitation and human degradation are the guarantee so that each layer of the pyramid maintains its place. All the conflicts of Peruvian society arise with rage and impotence in this testimonial novel in which Vargas Llosa, paints a social and political picture.

Description in Spanish: La ciudad y los perros no solamente es un ataque contra la crueldad ejercida a un grupo de jvenes alumnos del Colegio Militar Leoncio Prado, sino tambin una crtica frontal al concepto errneo de la virilidad, de sus funciones y de las consecuencias de una educacin castrense malentendida. Aunada a la brutalidad propia de la vida militar, a lo largo de las pginas de esta extraordinaria novela, la vehemencia y la pasin de la juventud se desbocan hasta llegar a una furia, una rabia y un fanatismo que anulan toda sensibilidad. El libro ms violento de Mario Vargas Llosa, traducido a ms de treinta idiomas.

La ciudad y los adolecentes  Jun 26, 2008
La Ciudad y los Perros

Es un libro recomendable porque aunque trata una realidad específica, cualquiera que haya estado en una escuela y con mayor razón en un internado puede fácilmente encontrar ecos de su propia adolescencia en la novela; amén de las descripciones vívidas, el dibujo de los personajes y los distintos momentos de crisis. Si no la han leído, los invito a leerla, al igual que las demás novelas de Mario Vargas Llosa.
