Editorial Reviews

Review

Los lectores no podran pasar las paginas lo suficientemente rapido. Una historia apasionante. --Publishers Weekly

Entretenida como pocas, hermosa por su construccion e inquietante por la grave problematica que late debajo de la aventura criminal. A esta radiografia del delito añade ademas el autor un canto a la propia literatura. --El Cultural

Junten el desencanto neorromantico de Barry Gifford con la maestria narrativa de Juan Marse y añadan una banda sonora con el desgarro de Chavela Vargas. El resultado de semejante mezcolanza ya tiene titulo: La Reina del Sur. --El Periodico de Catalunhia --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I saw the series on TV and it was good, but the book is excellent.
Nica Princess
I love this book and already got two other people hooked on it from just reading the first two pages.
Jessi
The novel describes, with an excellent taste, the story of Teresa Mendoza.

He leído varios libros de autores españoles recientemente. Y La Reina del Sur y La Sombra del Viento, sobresalen por la mezcla de creatividad literaria y entretenimiento que muchos lectores buscan y que los autores han sabido magistralmente imprimir en sendas obras. Si lo que quiere es un libro de aventuras bien planeadas, en locales exóticos y comunes, con una exquisita visión literaria que no sacrifica en nada la continuidad de la lectura, con pasajes cinematográficos difícil de olvidar en el idioma español, La Reina del Sur es, por mucho, ejemplo de la literatura que sin dejar de serlo, atrae a quienes gustan de la ficción popular. Un logro extraordinario por un autor consagrado.

Format: Paperback
This book can be praised from every possible angle. The Narrative technique is spotless; the definition of the characters, fantastic; at some point the reader is not sure whether this is the description of real historical events, because the care placed into every detail its so well tuned that the concept of "fiction" does not sound appropiate to the work. Additionaly is fascinating to read a Spanish author writing in "mexican". The great use of mexican slang through the novel shows how deeply the author went to make its characters realistic. While you read you can almost hear the accent of Teresa Mendoza.
On the external part, this book also shows you how the war on drugs is more like a cruel and sad game if not a joke that is played by victims, criminals and governments without really knowing why.

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By marintia escobedo - journalist. on December 29, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is perhaps the most complete story ever written on the subject. Perez-Reverte's incredible view from the female side of a mostly male theme, makes this novel as sensitive and passionate as it is full of excitement and adventure. I call it a "Red-eye novel" because once you start reading it, you will not be able to put it down whether it's day or night. I found myself waking up in the middle of the night just to keep on reading.
The plot is great, the development stunning and the outcome an absolute success. If there is any such thing as the perfect recipe for an awesome novel, it is contained within "La Reina del Sur" masterfully written by Arturo Perez-Reverte. Definitely a "MUST READ".

Leí este libro en español y me encanto, nunca había leido ningún libro de Arturo Pérez-Reverte, pero me gusto mucho. Me gusto la forma en que fue escrito, escribe como un periodista estudiando la historia de la "Reina del Sur" y después cambia a contarnos como si la estuvieramos viviendo. Se ven las dos caras, de la persona que estudia la vida de otros y la de los que viven.

Format: Paperback
If you have ever dreamed with a book which could be a source of all sorts of human feelings, this one is definitely for you. La Reina del Sur (The Queen of the South) describes the world through the eyes of Teresa Mendoza, a woman who did not know herself until she was alone, without "protection" of men. La Reina del Sur takes you into the world of drug trafficking, full of drugs Lords and their bullies, crime, bribery, excesses and corruption. A tough world in which this woman was able to survive and then to succeed. La Reina del Sur is one of the most entertaining, interesting, breathtaking and realistic novels that I have read in all my life.
A must for novel lovers!!! I bet you will beg for more pages.

Format: Paperback
Perez Reverte es el maestro de la literatura espanola. En "el maestro de esgrima" consiguio fundir a Galdos, Conan Doyle, Conrad y Dumas en una elegante novela sobre los valores perdidos. "La Tabla de Flandes" es el primer thriller moderno (y culto)publicado en Espana. "El Club Dumas" es tal vez el mayor ejercicio de metalenguaje y relectura desde "El Nombre de la Rosa" y su perfecta trama es un puzzle literario y una paseo nostalgico por las lecturas de juventud (cuando en la juventud aun se leia). Las pocas paginas de la "Sombra del aguila" provocan mas carcajadas que los mejores humoristas. "Territorio Comanche" es el libro de cabecera de los aprendices de reportero belico y las aventuras del Capitan Alatriste han resucitado en muchos la pasion por el folletin, por la aventura en estado puro, ademas de contribuir al estudio del lenguaje del siglo XVII.
Tal vez "La piel del Tambor" sea algo mas lento y topico (el cura atractivo, fuerte y ligon me produjo la misma verguenza ajena que la mujer torero de Hable con Ella) pero los personajes secundarios son oro en pano. "La Carta Esferica" contiene algunos tics (las repetitivas descripciones del corte de pelo de la chica, p.e.)pero tambien atesora (nunca mejor dicho, pues va de buscar tesoros)lo mejor de Conrad y Stevenson.
Y finalmente llegamos a "La Reina del Sur", tal vez una de sus obras mas ambiciosas. De nuevo el maestro utiliza el esquema de relectura del Club Dumas sustituyendo Los Tres Mosqueteros (la novela guia en el Club) por la otra gran obra de Dumas, "El Conde de Montecristo.
