Los ejércitosAmed of his peeping and suggests that he pay a visit to Father Albornoz Instead Ismail wanders the town visiting old friends plagued by a tangle of secret memories Where have I existed these years I answer myself up on the wall peering over When the armies slowly arrive the profesor's reveries are gradually. Rating 425🍌THE ARMIES opens with a vivid scene dripping with symbolism Ismael a retired schoolteacher in a rural Colombian village stands on a ladder in his orange tree as he spies on his neighbor's naked wife in her back garden This prelapsarian scene is only one of many biblical echoes that resound throughout a book concerned with the great themes of evil desire and ultimately mankind's expulsion from the Garden70 year old Ismael spends his retirement tending to his garden bickering with his wife Otilia and lusting after other men's wives Looming in the distance is punishment a civil war is raging and the rumble of war vibrates in the background as Ismael visits neighborhood gatherings and the houses of old friends breaking commandments in their own ways The reader though knows the war is coming and one of the great successes of the book is the unsettled atmosphere pervading the narrative This unsettled atmosphere transforms into chaos when the militias arrive; in the confusion Ismael and Otilia get separated Though others are fleeing the town Ismael stays behind to search for his wife and what follows is a haunting account of the blunt realities of war as the village is ravaged and Ismael slowly loses his sense of self The final scene in particular is one of the most horrifying passages I've read in recent memoryTold in a gentle prose that vacillates between limpid and disorienting and at times reminded me of the Portuguese author Jose Saramago THE ARMIES is a small gem of a book that deserves a wider audience
