Olguin introduces us to journalist Veronica Rosenthal with her teeth into a story that starts with the psychological stress suffered by train drivers after deaths on the line suicides, accidents But soon it turns darker focussing on the dire games of chicken played out by young boys from the poor districts and shanty towns Darker still is the notion that these games are organised by a corrupt circle of powerful and connected gamblers.
I found the premise of the book fascinating, the social observation detailed, the pace towards the end gripping if somewhat fantastic Not so charmed by Veronica herself and her graphic sexual grappling but that s a matter of personal likes Maybe it s a portrait of a psychology that spurs her on to ruthless pursuit of the story.
A good read and a defi Veronica is a journalist for a popular magazine, she s talented and has an eye for a story When she hears of a child s death on the railway and the train driver is traumatised, she feels this could be interesting from a human emotion side, but she soon finds there is so much to the story.
Poor young boys, are drawn to a local football team, the coach Rivero offers them a chance to make some money, a game he says This evil man sets two boys a game of chicken, against a train, the last one to jump off the tracks is the winner Oh and men gamble on this The train drivers on the routes, are on tenterhooks their whole shift, just waiting to see someone on the tracks and to hear the crunch of bone Veronica finds out about this and is deter Conductor De Trenes Se Suicida Y Deja Una Carta En La Que Pide Perd N Por Su Responsabilidad En La Muerte De Cuatro Personas Las Ambiguas Referencias A Un Ni O Entre Las V Ctimas Llaman La Atenci N De Ver Nica Rosenthal, La Implacable Redactora De La Revista Nuestro Tiempo Periodista De Raza, Apasionada Defensora De La Verdad Y La Justicia, Fumadora Empedernida, Con Especial Debilidad Por Las Bebidas Alcoh Licas Y Los Hombres Casados, Ver Nica No Detendr Su Investigaci N Ante Nada Mucho å read ↠´ La fragilidad de los cuerpos (Verónica Rosenthal, #1) by Sergio S.

What she learns is teenagers are trying out for soccer for a way to escape their poverty A local coach is then guiding them to play chicken with the trains The last one off the tracks is the winner But this is not just about the poor kids that die Some very rich people are placing bets on these kids.
This is an amazing story I was instantly drawn in and feeling so bad for these kids that are doing whatever they can to try to survive poverty Sadly ther Right, where on earth do I begin, to get across to everyone how intensely, sublimely brilliant The Fragility of Bodies is A book shot through with painful truths and gritty realism, and with the ability to put its reader through a whole gamut of emotions with its pared down prose, perceptive exploration of the human compulsion to make connections, and larger themes of trust, exploitation and social injustice This is a huge, important book hiding behind the deceptively simple label of an Argentine noir thriller, but has much to say about the nature of human relationships, and the power and exploitation of the few on the lives of the many With such a self assured, dogged, yet emotionally turbulent central c
