    This book is a book for history lovers Anyone who wants the whohowwherewhenwhy will love the detail and precision with which every event in this book is told Unless you truly grew up in the culture about which it is written and know about drug runs and border crossings and vacuum packing marijuana in bricks to stow away in speedboats I would wager than Perez Reverte could convince any reader that he has done his homewor

    There are a lot of reviews available here which outline the plot so I won't attempt to do so here other than to say cocaine smuggling logistics deals and double crossings Moroccan hashish fast boats cargo ships dirty politics shootouts Mexican drug cartels the Colombians indiscretions and revenge Teresa Mendoza

    This is a fascinating and beautifully written book about so many things On the surface it is the tale of the unlikely rise of a young girl through the world of the drug trade her survival and success But as in any book by Pérez Reverte it is meticulously researched and crafted and gives the reader layer upon layer Teresa Mendoza is a superb character and the book uses everything from The Count of Monte Cristo to the

    This story is told in two styles; from an omniscient perspective following the main character and from the first person point of view of a journalist researching her story At first I was uite bored by the latter story Later on however I began

La Reina del Sur

Desnuda se erizó igual ue si acabara de reventar el grifo del agua fría Bip bip En el estéreo del dormitorio los Tigres del Norte cantaban historias de Camelia la Tejana La traición y el contrabando decían son cosas compartidas». This was a good solid read It reminded me of the Godfather series that I read years ago and loved I recommend to any readers that like Mario Puzo I did have an issue with the way the author changed up the point of view I would have liked if the whole story was told by Teresa Mendoza 1st person the entire time I was reading but the author switched it up He had the reporter 3rd person talking as well and I had to at times go back to re read certain parts so I could keep up with who is talkingI look forward to watching the spanish movie version as well as the US tv show

Un thriller apasionante«Sonó el teléfono y supo ue la iban a matar Lo supo con tanta certeza ue se uedó inmóvil la cuchilla en alto el cabello pegado a la cara entre el vapor del agua caliente ue goteaba en los azulejos Bip bip S. I m on holiday hurrah This means it is time to turn my attention to the very important task of learning Spanish I made two New Year s Resolutions One was to learn some Spanish before the year was out the other was to keep a running list of the books I have read on this here blog So time to work on one of my resolutionsInstead of learning Spanish I have been reading The ueen of the South by Arturo Perez Reverte is the latest book that I have finished The best way to describe it is a page turner On the opening page the heroine Teresa Mendoza receives a call on a phone a phone that she has been told that If it rings start running And don t stop running Ever The book covers the next twelve years of her life as she flees Mexico ends up in Africa spends time in jail moves to Spain and then finally returns homeIt is really difficult to explain how much I liked this book It s strange I am sat here at the computer reading as I type and I realise that I am being slightly flat in my description which isn t fair to the book because it is a fast paced thrilling ride Teresa starts the book as a girlfriend of a drug runner and ends up building a huge drug running empire The book is written in a very clever way the author acts as an investigative journalist writing the biography of The ueen of the South as Mendoza becomes know However the book is written in such a way that at the end I googled Teresa Mendoza because I really really thought she was a real person The book includes many situations many people that have happened or existed And by the end of the book I had become so involved with the main character that I wanted her to be real I wanted her to find the peace that she deserved And yes I realise that wanting a major drug runner to escape and live in peace is not the way I normally feel but the author makes you become invested in the characters Hell by the end of the book I had fallen in love with most of the drug runners and dealers and actually hated the authorities and their witch huntsThe other wonderful thing about this book was it gave me an insight into how Mexicans think and behave Obviously I live with one a Mexican that is and have a small handle on her behaviour patterns but it was fascinating to discover that instead of Maria being a totally uniue individual she is also a product of her country There was a lot of familiarity for me in the book Place names SpanishMexican expressions a general understanding of that s the way they think and a total recognition of that s the way they dress and wear their hairI loved this book Because of the world I now occupy drugs running and dealing are part of my life background not because I am involved but because I come across it most every day it exists in my life and the history of drug cartels is something that I have become interested in The fact that my nickname at Maria s office is that of a famous drug dealer might have something to do with my fascination The fact that three times a week I cross the border knowing that as I do there is a good chance that right next to me is someone smuggling drugs interests meThis review probably doesn t do the book justice I really enjoyed it would recommend it

review La Reina del Sur

E uedó muy uieta conteniendo el aliento como si la inmovilidad o el silencio pudieran cambiar el curso de lo ue ya había ocurrido Bip bip Estaba en la bañera depilándose la pierna derecha el agua jabonosa por la cintura y su piel. I guess I m glad I read this if only to satisfy a long burning curiosity about The ueen of the South that s been in the back of my head ever since my mom hid the book from me at age fifteen so I couldn t read the dirty parts for the record Mom I probably would have been able to handle itThat said it could have been a lot cooler than it is And considering the book is about a woman who goes on the run after being targeted by Mexican hitmen and eventually becomes the most powerful drug lord in the Mediterranean that s saying a lot The story itself was really cool and had a lot of potential Teresa Mendoza starts out as just some low level drug runner s girlfriend but when he gets killed by his employers and they come after her resulting in the single best opening line of any book ever The telephone rang and she knew she was going to die she runs to Spain gets involved with another smuggler goes to prison comes out and then begins selling and shipping cocaine all over the place Sex drugs and shooting ensues It s good in a trashy guilty pleasure living vicariously through books kind of way My problem is the format of the book it s partially narrated by a reporter doing a story on Teresa once she s become the so called ueen of the South and he butts into the story every few chapters so we can watch him interviewing people Teresa interacted with during her career They hint at what is about to happen next in the story and then it happens As far as I could tell the reporter served absolutely no purpose as a second narrator and all of his chapters should have just been cut out completely Also Perez Reverte is really really terrible at writing from a female mindset but this review is already long enough so I won t bother getting into that rant
