Mario Vargas Llosa's classic early novel takes place in a Peruvian town, situated between desert and jungle, which is torn by boredom and lust. Don Anselmo, a stranger in a black coat, builds a brothel on the outskirts of the town while he charms its innocent people, setting in motion a chain reaction with extraordinary consequences.

This brothel, called the Green House, brings together the innocent and the corrupt: Bonificia, a young Indian girl saved by the nuns only to become a prostitute; Father Garcia, struggling for the church; and four best friends drawn to both excitement and escape.

The conflicting forces that haunt the Green House evoke a world balanced between savagery and civilization -- and one that is cursed by not being able to discern between the two.

I studied English and fiction in college. I'm comfortable saying that this book is a "masterpiece" if "masterpiece" means that I think it is the kind of book that can stay around for many years and might be taught in a class that teaches literature as classical art.

That said, I don't think that if this book were written in English and submitted to a publisher today in the US that there is any way it would be published. I have read four of Vargas Llosa's books. My favorite was the War of the End of the world. I don't know if I would say that this is my least favorite exactly, but it's the least forgiving of them.

For the most part, you can get the hang of the way the story is told. There are some events that I couldn't place exactly in a time line but most of the events that I couldn't place exactly didn't necessarily need to be placed exactly.

I think if you're looking up Vargas Llosa you're going to read him anyway because he's a nobel winner. I just want to give anyone reading this a heads up that this is basically on the level of difficulty of any work by faulker. The long paragraphs are usually not really long paragraphs of description that break up conversation but they're actually just more dialogue except that its narrated without quotation marks and everything is on the same line. For this reason, I would say the book is literally about 85% dialogue.

You meet Lituma in like the third chapter, so I wouldn't exactly call this a spoiler. He was in jail for a reason I won't divulge. I read the entire book without know exactly how long he was in jail, and it turned out to be longer than I thought it was when I looked it up online. I also thought I knew the reason, and I turned out to be right, but because of the way things were narrated I wasn't actually sure.

I've read a lot of faulkner. I've read joyce and pynchon and gaddis and a bunch of other people. I'm ok with uncertainty in text, but it irritates me that I missed the detail of how long he was in prison and the misunderstanding changed my understanding of what was happening in the story. Basically I just want to give you a forewarning that if you do not like difficult books than you shouldn't even bother reading this. If you don't mind uncertainty in text it's overall an enjoyable experience. The only thing I would say is that for me some of the reading of this was disappointing because all i was thinking was "Feast of the Goat and War at the end of the World are way better."

Regardless, I'm glad I read this book and I think it's a worthwhile investment of your time if you are willing to reread some sections.

I bought the 1st edition avon mass market paper back in 1980.A case of judging a book by it's cover.Since than I have read the book several times.This novel is Llosa in his prime.Full of mystery,romance,humor and history.The writing is so addictive and poetic that open up any page and you are trapped in world that you can leave only reluctantly.One of the worlds truly great books.As for being a difficult read, it is as easy as watching a movie.
The theme of this novel ,as in most of Llosas novels, are the absurdities and consequences of bigotry,this time played out in Peru circa world war two?
I believe that it is his humanism coupled with his great and innovative story telling skills that won Llosa his Noble prize.
This is Llosa at his best,and what a beautiful cover by Vincent Calabrese.

The novel that deservedly established Vargas Llosa as one of the premier Latin American authors writing in Spanish. This is a seminal work that provides the foundation for much of Vargas Llosa's subsequent output, a portrait of his beloved Peru. The novel demands one's full attention, perhaps even taking notes, to keep the characters and events straight because dialogue is written as it might actually occur among groups of characters and events are not always narrated in sequence. But one finds many, many passages of great beauty, particularly in descriptions of nature. One needs to clear one's mind and dedicate a period of time to reading this piece. The translation is remarkable.

This is a book I want to read again. It is so chock full of incredible detail and characters that one trip to the Green House is not enough. It was so vivid, I thought I was reading a great movie.

Vargas Llosa is a celebrated author, so I recognize that this book is probably just not my cup of tea. To its credit, it's a rich, complex story that touches on some important sociopolitical issues. But the way he writes is just not for me.

A fantastically interesting book from the great Llosa. Dive into the world of humans and their doings at all of the levels the human spirit can rise to or fall to.

First book I have read by Llosa and found it difficult to follow at first but once deeper into the story I was able to grasp his writting style with the continual back and forth through periods of time with the characters.
great recreation of place and time.
