Publisher's Summary

Angeles Mastretta nacio en Puebla (Mexico) en 1949. Curso estudios de periodismo en la Facultad de Ciencias Politicas y Sociales de la UNAM. Con Arrancame la vida) ha obtenido un enorme exito de publico y el fervoroso reconocimiento de la critica. Publico Mujeres de ojos grandes (relatos, 1991), Puerto libre (relatos autobiograficos, 1994) y Mal de amores (novella, 1996).

Con maestria inigualable, Angeles Mastretta narra en estas paginas el inicial amor sumiso de Catalina, una apasionada mujer mexicana, por el general Andres Ascencio. Asimismo, destaca la progresiva desvinculacion de su papel de subordinacion conyugal y del enganoso contexto social que la rodea. Traducida a mas de once idiomas, Arrancame la vida es ya un clasico de la narrative en lengua castellana y ocupa un lugar de privilegio entre las obras que tienen por tema el acceso de la mujer a la plena conciencia de si misma.


A young girl recounts her girlhood and eventual marriage to a general of the Mexican revolution. By one of the most outstanding writers of the new feminist Mexican literature, it is at once a haunting novel of one woman's life and a powerful account of post-revolutionary Mexico from a female perspective.

    "Great Story, Well-Read"

    The novel is one of Mexico's most important of the 20th Century. If you are familiar with the many Latin American pieces about history's great characters-- caudillos, generales, coroneles-- in books like "Los de abajo" and "La muerte de Artemio Cruz," this one reads like a feminist response told from the perspective of the wife of an aspiring post-Mexican-Revolution political figure. The novel has an engaging, easy-to-follow style. Plus the narration in this audiobook is, in my opinion, great. I listened to this one completely in one great unproductive day. Finally, I suggest you get this and then watch the movie of the same name. I understand that it was Mexico's most expensive production and a roaring success. I'm not a fan of these types of novels, but after having read, listened, and watched it, I definitely think that it is worth a (re)visit.

    Story
    "Me gusto el personaje de Catalina"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Si, lo recomiendo....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Catalina:
    La historia me gusto mucho. Es muy fácil seguir la vida de Catalina entre ese mundo de la política. A pesar que ella era una jovencita de pueblo e inocente se llega a convertir en una gran dama de ese circulo político social.
    Me gusto como se transforma. Pero me gusto mas todas las conversaciones que ella tiene con sus amigas. Creo que es fácil sentirse identificada en algunas ocasiones con la vida matrimonial y familiar de Catalina.
    Pense que al final Catalina no quería la muerte de su General. Creo que los dos se conocían tanto que ambos sabían lo que el otro pensaba. La muerte del General no fue toda la culpa de Catalina. El General ya tenia decidido que quería morir ya que el era un hombre calculador.
