About this deal

As he's done in his previous novels, Jonas Jonasson acts as a travel guide through time, drops in a few lessons on colonialism and art history, and pokes fun at capitalism and the art world, supplying plenty of laughs along the way. I laughed out loud for much of this book. The escapades of Maasai medicine man Ole were hysterical. You just had to dislike Victor, what a despicable person. Every character in the story had a place and a purpose to the plot.

Jonassoni tegelastegalerii ei ole kunagi kahvatu, nii ka seekord - rahvusromantikust kunstikaupmees, kes elu keerdkäikudes "saab" endale tumedanahalise poja, kelle ta ühel hetkel Aafrikasse lõvidele söödaks läkitab ja kes seepeale taevast sadanud pojana lapsendatakse ühe kohaliku ravitsejamehe poolt. Viimane reisib peagi Rootsi, otsima oma jumalast saadetud poega, kes sooritab kõik masai sõdalase katsumused, väljaarvatud see viimane ümberlõikamise teema, ja kui ravitsejamees külma talvesse saabub, siis alles hakkab juhtuma. Ja siis on veel kunstikaupmehe naine, kellest saab õige ruttu endine abikaasa ja siis üsna varsti hoopis selle sama kunstikaupmehe poja naine... Läks juba segamini? Pole viga, raamatut lugedes on kõik selge ja loogiline, kiirkokkuvõttena kõlab veidi ulmelisena jah. Olgem ausad, ega Oidipuse lugu ju ka kuigi loogiline ole.

Al final, era el eje central de la historia y todos los personajes terminaron relacionados en mayor o menor medida al arte, en especial a la obra de Irma Stern. Me gustó el contraste entre lo que Victor consideraba arte y lo que después Jenny y los demás van mostrando, y el cómo la historia personal de la misma Irma se mezcló con la de los protagonistaa volviéndola casi un personaje más.

This is very much in the style of the 100 Year Old Man... so if you liked that, you'll probably like this too, although there's none of the 'travelling through the years' element from those books.Una dulce venganza es una comedia de enredos, coincidencias y situaciones absurdas. Nos narran historias de varios personajes hasta el punto en que se van entremezclando. Todo parte con Victor, un racista, xenófobo y homófobo y todo lo que se les pueda ocurrir que estafa a dos personas y el cómo estas se unen para conseguir una venganza. To me, the best parts were by far the dialogues. My favourite ones between Ole and Hugo. Those were the bits where I laughed the most. And the scene between Victor and the American whose name I already forgot. And the fact that there are different parts in the Bible which can be interpreted and used as it fits the situation. Hah! Then we have the most bonkers plot (if you can call it that) and one I won’t even attempt to explain. Certainly it was fun here and there, but otherwise it’s ‘quirkiness’ very soon rubbed off and what was left was a silly, sluggish mess.
