    The War of the End of the World is a panoramic and polychromatic canvas it is equally historical, philosophical, psychological and adventurous story and one of the deepest at that.Do the rhetorical quarrels of bourgeois political parties have anything to do with the interests of the humble and downtrodden The question is posed and the entire novel is a meticulous a

    That a mad man walking from village to village in the poor northeast of Brazil in the state of Bahia, during the late 1800 s preaching to the poor the brotherhood of all, and the end of the world would cause the deaths of countless people, and shake the very foundation of the new republic is unfathomable Since the abolition of slavery and the monarchy less then a decade ago

    This riveting story about a true event in Brasilian history is a page turner The story of the surprising rise and inevitable fall of the commune of Canudo out in the middle of the Bahia region is told from several perspectives and using painstaking detail The scenes of battle are excruciating and incredibly realistic Once again, Mario Vargas Llosa has delivered a marvelous piece of

    There are books at which we arrive to too soon, books that are forced down our throats by well meaning instructors and friends, books that are passed on with loving grace and books that are clung to relentlessly for years There are books of which we hear much yet never open and obscure books that catch our eye in a musty booksellers that swiftly become those items with which to cudgel our own friends Ther

    At the end of the nineteenth century a rebellion broke out in the back lands of Bahia, Brazil.The rebels who are poor people, bandits, people of uncertain ethnicity, former slaves, impoverished settlers, the disabled, all inspired by a charismatic religious leader and thoroughly alienated from the new Republic, were inspired by the hope that Dom Sebastian, the Portuguese King who had died in Morocco in the sixtee
