Ariel Dorfman construye en 'Konfidenz' una compleja novela de amor y de espionaje en diferentes plano. Halfway through Konfidenz the twisting and turning novel by Ariel Dorfman I started to think about the Werner Herzog documentary Grizzly Man In it Timothy Treadwell decides that he is going to protect the grizzly bears from poachers until he was eaten by one He saw something in the bears a sort of companionship and compassion for him that did not exist Treadwell considered these bears his friends and until the end he did not think anything bad could happen to him This companionship only existed in his delusional mind and in the end he was wrongThis also seems to be the case of Konfidenz Konfidenz actually is referring to a con game One of the most popular con game is three card monte where the man on the street shuffles three cards on a fold up card table and you give him a dollar or five to guess which on the ueen is Of course even though there is a 33% chance of being right this chance is made harder by the skill of the man shuffling the cards he stacks them grabs two with one hand and can flip either the top or the bottom card He can move faster than your eye and even though you think you might have kept track of the ueen you are really only lucky if you get the card rightThese two ideas do not seem as if they are related and have nothing to do with the novel at all but really these two things are really relevant relevant to the story than me saying something like I like this book because or Ariel Dorfman's novel inspired me to uestion Max completely because The best thing to do would be to find out if I am running my own game I could be totally misleading you with this description if I am the con man all along

Summary Konfidenz

KonfidenzS narrativos y temporales cuyos protagonistas pueden situarse en cualuier epoca y parte del mundo don. There are many books dealing with vast and shadowy conspiracies plots where everyone is a suspect and mysteries where hints are dropped but there are no firm clues to speak of Just look at the works of John le Carré for an example of these tropes done right Konfidenz covers these familiar topics but it is than just another boilerplate example of the genre Its willingness to confront the nature of fiction and the role of the author elevates it to something something worth readingWhen Konfidenz starts it is easy to write off what it is doing as a gimmick Most of the text is dialogue like a play without the stage direction and eventually the author is introduced into the text as a character of sorts commenting on the action thus far Nothing special at first especially considering that the drama of the main plot of espionage agents in Paris is periodically undercut by the author spelling out just how every situation could be a lie a set up for some other character in the story These interjections kill all subtlety hammering home what a clever reader was aware of pages earlierThe book is no mere mystery thriller though As the title suggests this book is about putting your trust in something Who do you trust in a work of fiction The characters Here the characters are anything but up front even at the end of the book it is unclear who can be trusted and who was telling lies The author Here the author introduces himself as an interested party and a very unreliable one at that subject to the vicissitudes of the story than a controlling force The book in total A recurring theme of the book is that we accept stories that are interesting that tell us something we want to hear instead of the truth With a theme like that it's impossible to have complete faith in any conclusion the novel introduces This lack of certainty is the novel's main strength while other espionage thrillers are the literary euivalent of action movies entertaining but lacking depth Konfidenz raises uestions about the nature of fiction and the nature of narratives Is Konfidenz telling a distinct story or stranding the reader in a morass from which there is no escape Is it a creation of the author or is the author just a conduit another character through which the story has come into being Can we know anything at the end of the book or is it all a dream created in the shadow of numerous coup attempts exiles and hidden plots Konfidenz isn't about answers it's about uestions and in this genre that makes the book far interesting than the competition Gimmicky Yes but with a purposeOverall a standard tale made something by the insertion of the author as a character and the focus on the nature of fiction Normally I would give something like this four stars but much to my surprise this entire work has almost completely evaporated from my mind only a couple months after having read it I can barely remember what happened in it and all the interesting nuances I discussed above aren't things I retained now that I'm rereading this review in July This is probably in part due to the fact that I've been plowing though many books this year but even so there are many other books I've read this year that have left a far stronger memory than Konfidenz Unfortunately therefore I must rate this book only 3 stars as an interesting curiosity that fails to make a lasting impression
