Publisher's Summary

Jerónimo Rodríguez Loera es en apariencia un niño mexicano como cualquier otro, pero también es un monstruo: recuerda completo el ciclo de sus reencarnaciones y, con él, todo el comportamiento humano. Al recordar sus vidas, Jerónimo presentará al lector el juego eterno al que se deben sus participantes. Echados ya los puentes sobre el modelo de la novela-río, Vidas perpendiculares es una formulación distinta, una novela cuántica, donde los diversos tiempos y espacios son simultáneos.

Sólo así pueden convivir la carga de caballería de Germánico César y el jardinero laguense, la amante napolitana de Francisco de Quevedo y el agitador asturiano en Buenos Aires, la camellera de las estepas mongolas y el muralista que fracasa por ser de derechas, Pablo de Tarso y los cachorros de un Homo sapiens programados para imponer su ADN a garrotazos. Y de esta colisión de realidades emergen los misterios que Enrigue desmadeja: ¿Cómo es que un muchacho turco, tejedor de carpas y destinado al sanedrín, inventó la modernidad? ¿Cómo es que el mayor poeta erótico de la lengua era también el hombre más desagradable de su siglo? ¿Cómo veíamos el mundo antes del habla?

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    "Great story, great narrator - bad editing"

    If you can get past the fact the narrator is obviously Spanish reading a Mexican novel (which doesn't bother me), the recording quality is excellent and the speaker is very professional. HOWEVER - there are several instance when the narrator clears his threat, stops mid-sentence, and starts over. He repeats the lines, but these should have been edited. The worst is Chapter 8, in which there are easily a dozen major errors and stops, and entire sections repeated. Again, had this been edited, the final product would have been excellent - the speaker is great, and the recording tone is good - but it is hard to keep attention on the story when complete sections repeat and suddenly stop.
