Al principio, este libro me pareció difícil de seguir, y hasta un poco aburrido. Mi primera impresión es que el autor se iba por la tangente que daba gusto. Pero seguí leyendo y al poco me di cuenta de que de tangentes nada. Este libro es como un gran concierto de pensamientos, los cuales todos se centran en un punto común. Esas tangencias o periferias están diseñadas con tal habilidad que complementan la historia sin parecer superfluas: Ruibérriz, Celia/Victoria, el Único, todos caracteres bien perfilados, con mucho color, y las citas entremezcladas en el texto, las escenas de películas, todos contribuyendo a realzar una trama ya de por sí apasionante. El protagonista se debate entre decisiones tomadas y asumidas, y sus diálogos consigo mismo son de lo mejor que he leido en la literatura española en mucho tiempo.
El final es imprevisible. Cuando ya pensaba que sabía por dónde iban los tiros, en el último momento me llevé una sorpresa. Qué irónica puede ser la vida, qué carcajadas se pega a nuestra costa (o en este caso a costa de Deán).
Las notas adicionales (otra sorpresa que no descubrí hasta el final) son muy interesantes, y si ya por entonces me cabía alguna duda del pedazo de escritor que es Javier Marías, ahí se me borraron por completo. Esta novela es para no perdérsela.

Format: Paperback
The book is a magnificent piece of literature, an outstanding sample of the combination of styles and rhythms that makes of Marias one of the best current Spanish writers. Although frequently criticised in Spanish literary cliques, the very particular sense of humour and recurring style of Marias is captivating. Having a kind of film noir story background, Marias creates a set of curiously charming characters that develop through a catching story line. Special mention to a superb scene that features the king of Spain, Juan Carlos I, unfortunately not at the reach of non-Spaniard readers. Do not miss it, especially if you can read the original Spanish prose.

Format: Paperback
I have read four novels by Marías so far, all of them are great, but this one is the best by far. I wouldn't call it a "mystery/thriller", it is a novel about decisions one's takes and it's implications, about unevitable things and about death. The technique is impressive, recurring phrases that seem trivial at first and make more sense every time they are mentioned. Shakespeare's quotes applied to the situations. If you would read only one book by Marías, read this one.

Siempre he pensado que hay dos tipos de escritores. A decir verdad son tres. Según mi categorización reduccionista:

1.- Los que relatan una historia y todo el apoyo de la obra está en ella. Sin más que la simple historia
2.- Los que describen emociones y reflexionan sobre los hechos de una historia. En estos escritores la historia es sólo un material conductor para montar estas expresiones.
3.- Los que cumplen con los dos requisitos; historia y reflexión, que son los menos comunes de encontrar.

Al segundo tipo yo los llamo "Los Interioristas" y soy un fanático de estos escritores. Y por favor, que no se me malinterprete; un escritor interiorista para mi tiene mucho más valor que cualquier otro (Haruki Murakami, Juan José Millas, Ernesto Sabato y por supuesto Javier Marías).
Parecería que en cualquier historia que cuenta Javier Marías, no pasa nada, ya que todo transcurre a través de esas reflexiones. La estructura es más o menos así: Un hecho, seguido de lo que ese hecho les representa y le hace sentir el personaje principal. A través de esa experiencia se generan también recuerdos y se cuenta una historia más, dentro de esa misma historia, pero en la cabeza del protagonista. Se generan más sucesos dentro del personaje que en la historia misma y se recrean esos recuerdos dolorosos. A través de determinados hechos sin importancia, se detonan los pensamientos, muchas veces pesimistas de este personaje. Generalmente es muy paranoico y a su alrededor percibe que existe una conspiración en su contra.
Este personaje también espía, sigue a otros como un detective en busca de pistas y reflexiona.

Format: Paperback
It is common knowledge among Marías' readers that the beginnings of his novels are among the best in today's Spanish language literature. Indeed, I can only recall a few cases in which a first sentence -nothing more than that- instantly compelled me to read the rest of a novel. I guess what I am trying to suggest is that Marías is one of the few novelists in the Spanish language today whose style you would be able to recognize by just reading a first sentence. But the stylistic component is not the only compelling thing-it is also the incredible opening scenes. Tomorrow in the Battle Think on Me undoubtedly has (perhaps with the beginning of A Heart So White) the best beginning of Marías oeuvre and (I would dare say) in all contemporary Spanish literature. It is not only the first sentence, "No one ever expects that they might some day find themselves with a dead woman in their arms..." but also the first opening chapter, in which Victor, the narrator, "finds himself" with an almost unknown, dead woman in his arms. The woman, Marta, has invited him over dinner while her husband is away on a business trip. What begins as an innocent, fun evening becomes a descent to a sort of hell (maybe Dante's), and Marías grabs you from the arm and leads you from that magnificent first sentence and chapter to the very last pages with mastery and unprecedented talent. Read it, you will not regret it.
