      4.5 Write ups said The African Shore was very strange But such is the strangeness of other books I ve read recently The Devil s Workshop, Red Grass, The Iraqi Christ, Revenge that it doesn t seem so weird as all that What s remarkable is the clarity of the writing the sort of writing that s good because you don t notice it at first it communicates perfectly, not a word out of place This novella is, for many, readable in one sitting but it was taking a break from it that showed me just how except [...]

      A beautiful book one of those that when I finished I turned back to the start and read again, not to revisit some plot twist that I d missed but simply for the pure pleasure of the prose.Rodrigo Rey Rosa is the literary heir to Paul Bowles, who translated all his previous works to appear in English, and this is clearly based on experiences from his time spent with Bowles in Tangier The story is based on two separate tales, of a Columbian tourist stranded, not unwillingly, in Morocco after he los [...]

      Absolutely amazing Blown away by this book Definitely the best thing I ve read so far this year So creepy, powerful, moving left me wordless No wonder Bola o was a fan Rey Rosa has now jumped up to the top of my MUST READ list as a result of this book The prose is flawless and immensely readable The structure is also fantastic, very innovative Cosmopolitanism, borders, migrants, exiles, drug smuggling, empathy, cultural misunderstandings, identity, modernity, elliptical references boy, did this [...]

      Una historia interesante, la narraci n definitivamente muy buena, los lugares bien descritos Qu pasar con l Dos historias que se unen en un instante y al otro se vuelven a separar, dejando a cada uno con las consecuencias de su forma de actuar.Buscar la libertad y quererla retener vaya iron a.

    6. Kobe Bryant says:

      This is basically a Bowles book but not nearly as good

    7. Henry Vargas says:

      Buena novela por parte de Rey Rosa Le habr a dado cinco estrellas si hubiera mantenido esa vibra de libro tur stico que me estaba cautivando Por desgracia, Rey Rosa comenz a meterle aspectos de trama forzados a la historia casi hasta el final y eso termin baj ndole la calificaci n No obstante, la primera parte me parece brillante.

    8. Tobias says:

      Starts outbulously, then becomes much intriguing as the parallels between the two central characters become clear.

    9. Dewey says:

      From what I ve heard, Hemingway, the bullfight lover and part time resident of pre Communist Cuba, has cast a shadow of sorts over the literature of the Spanish speaking world, which meant that it was only a matter of time before a Spanish writer out Hemingway d Hemingway Well that author has finally arrived in a larger amount of English translation, anyway Rodrigo Rey Rosa, considered the best living writer from Guatemala and old friend and student of the late Paul Bowles The author of Shelteri [...]

    10. Tonymess says:

      The African Shore came in for special mention at the Best Translated Book Award in 2014 with the judges noting We found Rodrigo Rey Rosa s short novel The African Shore, masterfully translated by Jeffrey Gray, to be almost the perfect counterpoint to Seiobo There Below In its sonnet like perfection, even a single out of place word would have marred this novel s hypnotizing effect, so due praise must be given to Rey Rosa and Gray for presenting us with this seamless, engrossing story We also admi [...]

      Half mystical, half all too real Like a Borges story passed through Bola o in a 21st century North African setting

      A remarkable novel that plumbs the depths of the Western and Eastern mindset Told with sparseness and elegance, this book is a classic.
