    1 thought on “Las Inviernas”

    1. The Winterlings flows smoothly, more like poetry than prose.  It isn't a gothic in the traditional sense, but like in gothics women and the conception of femininity play a central role. This is a novel that will definitely appeal more to an academic audience than the general public.  The story centers around two sisters who return to the Spanish village where they once lived with their grandfather.  After a youth spent in exile, their return revives the old fears, superstitions and resentmen [...]

    2. Bisognerebbe sempre scrivere recensioni costruttive, spiegando per bene il motivo per cui un libro è piaciuto o non è piaciuto, le ragioni per cui lo si è apprezzato e quelle per cui lo si è trovato carente. Di solito, cerco di farlo, ma, in questo caso, purtroppo non mi è possibile, perché dopo le prime pagine sono entrata in uno stato pressoché catalettico, con conseguente paralisi dei pochi neuroni ancora attivi del mio cervello.E questo è grave, direi. Perché se un romanzo, ancorch [...]

    3. Despite what my account my say, I am not planning on reading this book, but after reading the blurb I HAD to post a comment. It may be that the writer is not responsible or the blurb, it may be that this is an excellent book. I'll never know. But the question is this: "The broodingly romantic fallout from the Spanish civil war" WTF??? Since when living under a fascist dictatorship is broodingly romantic? I can't imagine anyone writing "the broodingly romantic Nazi Germany, and the broodingly ro [...]

    4. Poetisch, magisch, kräftig, auf der Zunge zergehend, geheimnisvoll, berührend. Die Geschichte der zwei Schwestern Saladina und Dolores, deren einzige Gemeinsamkeit in der Vorliebe für alte Hollywood-Filme und ihre Diven besteht, hat mich von der Atmosphäre her an Bittersüße Schokolade erinnert. Mit dem Unterschied, dass die skurrilen Familiengestalten hier durch die Dorfbewohner von Tierra de Chá verkörpert werden, die jedoch nicht weniger seltsam sind. Die Rückkehr der Wintermädchen, [...]

    5. "We'd be even lonelier without loneliness," they replied.I tried to love this but it didn't hold my interest. As far as I got, it seemed like a lot of other stories I've read about this era (WW2, post-WW2 village life), but I've preferred eastern Europe as a setting. I might go back to this.

    6. Un gran descubrimiento. El universo duro y magnífico de las inviernas no te dejará indiferente. Es una joya de libro.

    7. Maybe it was the translation, but it just didn't have that special thing that I love in books by a Latino author.

    8. The relationship between the Winterlings is beautifully realised. All the scruffy jealousies, arguments and love are a joy to read.

    9. Novel set in GALICIAThe small, rural parish of fictional Tierra de Chá in Galicia, unchanged despite the onward march of time, provides the setting for Spanish author Cristina Sánchez-Andrade’s strange, unsettling novel The Winterlings.After an absence of 25 years, sent away at the behest of their grandfather during the dark days of the Civil War – joining the ranks of children evacuated to England known as the Basque refugees – two sisters, Saladina and Dolores, return to the now abando [...]

    10. En esta novela hay leiras, lareiras, carreiros, corredoiras, mucho tojo, mucha vaca, mucho ambiente cerrado, mucho pacto de silencio.Lo rural. Lo rural gallego, nada menos. Esto es, aquí al ladito. Años cincuenta, años sesenta. Esto es, hace nadita.Viendo la insistencia, parece que lo rural, más que una moda, ha venido para quedarse. Pero estoy divagando. El tema: dos mujeres dos llegan a una aldea. Se las conoce como Las inviernas. Y se las conoce porque hace tiempo, muchos años, como vein [...]

    11. Cristina Sánchez-Andrade is a prize-winning author from Spain, and in this intriguing novel she explores the haunting secrets that derive from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). If what I read in Giles Tremlett’s Ghosts of Spain (see my review) is right, this makes her writing brave, because there has been a ‘pact of forgetting’ about the Civil War within Spain, with a consensus that outlasted Franco‘s death in 1975 that the past was better left alone.Two sisters who fled the violence a [...]

    12. Llevo una hora pensando qué decir sobre Las Inviernas de Cristina Sánchez-Andrade y no soy capaz de enlazar tres oraciones con algo de sentido. Tengo claro que me ha decepcionado, pero la culpa es compartida. La mitad es mía porque leí una sinopsis y mi imaginación se montó una película que poco tiene que ver con la realidad. La otra mitad es de la novela. Le falta algo y creo que tiene que ver con la sangre que hierve. Las Inviernas son dos hermanas que regresan a Tierra de Chá, en Gali [...]

    13. Galicia, años cincuenta. Dos hermanas regresan a Tierra de Chá después de una larga ausencia, muy unidas por un hecho oscuro cometido en el pasado, y también por su pasión por el cine y la vida de los artistas de Hollywood. Vuelven a la que fue la casa de su abuelo, de la que tuvieron que huir cuando eran niñas, y donde hombres y animales conviven bajo el mismo techo. En Tierra de Chá, nada y todo ha cambiado, las gentes, la pequeña casa lejana bajo la lluvia, el olor acre del tojo, las [...]

    14. I like this quirky book about two Spanish sisters who return to their small village in Spain after spending years in England during the war. This book is filled with stories and a way of life that is most probably part of the history of Spain.The descriptions of the little village, the people, the animals and the daily goings on are beautiful but it is very quirky. A grandfather who bought the brains of all of the villagers so they had to give him their brains when they died, one of the sisters [...]

    15. What is a Winterling? Or, in the novel’s original Spanish, an Invierna? The word might suggest, among other things, lambs born in their winter pens. It might also suggest certain early blooming flowers—winter aconite, for example—that thrive under bare forest canopies but will quickly die back into their bulbs once the trees come into leaf. Regardless of the association one might choose, the title is an apt one for this novel of provincial Spain at the cusp of modernity, and for its charac [...]

    16. A metà tra la finzione e la realtà, un libro bellino e leggero, da leggere subito dopo qualcosa di cervellotico che ha stancato la nostra testolina di lettori.Non c'è nulla di speciale tra queste pagine che mischiano la storia della Guerra Civile spagnola, la paura, la gelosia e tutti gli altri sentimenti umani con le leggende popolari e la magia che spesso le accompagna.Eppure, a volte, è bello leggere anche questi libri totalmente disimpegnati che però non sono vuoti e insulsi.

    17. A história tem um quê de realismo fantástico bastante familiar aos leitores de autores latino-americanos como Vargas Llosa e Garcìa Marquez. O segredo das irmãs é um tanto surreal, mas assim como todo o resto em Terra Chã, fica numa fronteira invisível entre as memórias e os fatos, o real e o fantástico, a verdade e a mentira.Resenha completa:cafeinaliteraria/20

    18. Reading this as part of August’s Women in Translation month, I wish I could say I’d enjoyed it more. But I found the prose flat and the story elusive. If, as I assume, it was meant as a comedy, I must confess I never once laughed Full review 4 novels in translation by women #WITMonth annegoodwin.weebly/1/post/

    19. This was a quick read - but it wasn't as entertaining as I had hoped. I enjoyed the Galician setting and the characters were creatively written but the story seemed flat. Thanks to edelweiss for the chance to explore this translation of a Spanish author who I would not have otherwise found on the library shelves.

    20. I loved the intertwined mysteries of this story, each unravelling in their own time. Whilst dark, there was something lighthearted about the storytelling - the dose of magical realism helped - that made it a joy to read. Highly recommended.

    21. Recuerda el realismo mágico de la literatura hispanoamericana. La galicia profunda y sus creencias, prejuicios y costumbres con sensibilidad, humor y ternura.

    22. Tiene muy buenos momentos. No puedo decir que se extienda por toda la novela pero fue bueno leerla
