Description

In fact, it is a surprisingly complex, frustratingly inscrutable, and uncompromisingly disturbing story full of gore, religious fanatics, and blood. No sé si achacarlo a la historia en sí o a la traducción (de hecho hay múltiples erratas, sin ir más lejos en el primer párrafo de la página 224 el nombre del prota aparece dos veces en dos líneas, en una de ellas está mal escrito viéndose Klein en lugar de Kline, y frases mal expresadas), además la narración me ha parecido fría, mecánica y con un final atropellado, brusco y cíclico. Sin saber muy bien porqué acaba aceptando y yendo al complejo que desprende un aire a secta por todas sus aristas.

I kept thinking of that line throughout this book and all the hard decisions the protagonist faced with no clear cut right or wrong options. As I found myself grinning and snickering, I was reminded of The Pilo Family Circus, another great piece of writing not to be missed that's a genius blend of genres containing the blackest of humor. Apparently it was initially published as a novella titled "The Brotherhood of Mutilation" and expended in the form a of a sequel novella taking place almost immediately after the first, Evenson put them together to form one novel. Afternote: was just reading the other reviews here and this one from Brian really made me laugh: For those of you that have read this book you will understand why I feel the need for a hug.A story about a man made into a messiah because he was not a flincher, and he was able to take things into his own HANDS. Por otro lado aparecen los Pauls, que no tienen pinta de parecer mucho mejores que los de la hermandad y entre unos y otros harán que Kline vaya perdiendo la cabeza.

Do you leave well enough alone and hope things work out, or do you step back into the shit and try to make things right on your own?I second guessed every turn, every page and whenever I did, I was usually rewarded with another, deeper reading into what presents itself as a simple mystery. The first part of the book was originally published by Earthling Publications in 2003 as a novella titled The Brotherhood of Mutilation. Last Days can be read like a darkly exhilarating Noir novel but I think further readings will bring out more serious themes about religious conviction and betrayals.

Klein, un agente ahora retirado que vive atormentado y depresivo tras la amputación que se autoinfligió para resolver un caso, conoce a unos curiosos personajes que le llevarán a la Hermandad de la Mutilación, sí has leído bien: MUTILACIÓN, para que resuelva un curioso crimen sucedido entre sus muros. Last Days reads like a rocket, taking off and never letting go, from the first word to the very last. It's easy to draw parallels to the noir greats here, but since I just finished reading several Cain novels I will repeat what I wrote in my review for Double Indemnity because it applies just as well here: It all starts with a delicious chill up your spine, your eyeballs riveted to the page, your breath held, the "gotta know what happens next" monster rattling the bars of his cage. But the leap from this conclusion to the actual physical removal of a hand itself is perhaps more difficult to explain. But the religious references are more than games, and more than swipes at the quirks and madness of actual religions.

It’s both painful and dangerous to one’s long-term health to do so, risking inflammations and other problems, which is all the more reason for members of the brotherhood to adore someone’s undertaking of such an act. There is an ongoing war of most of the major Christian churches upon the body, in favor of the soul.
