    I can feel the passageof time, as thought it werecoursing through myveins, along with my blood It s not often I turn to google maps whilst reading a book In the case of Ernesto Sabato s 1961 novel I found it helpful but not essential The first third of the novel there didn t seem to be a moment without the mention of a specific area within the city, add to that an abundance of street names, landmarks and buildings, which initially bothered me Because the city in question and the setting for I can feel the passageof time, as thought it werecoursing through myveins, along with my blood It s not often I turn to google maps whilst reading a book In the case of Ernesto Sabato s 1961 novel I found it helpful but not essential The first third of the novel there didn t seem to be a moment without the mention of a specific area within the city, add to that an abundance of street names, landmarks and buildings, which initially bothered me Because the city in question and the setting for Sabato s unsettling masterpiece is Buenos Aires, a place apart from being in Argentina I knew absolutely nothing about It wasn t my intention to turn the city inside out, upside down and learn every street corner off by heart, but just to get a rough idea of the city s layout especially the area around the port.On finishing On Heroes and Tombs one of the most important things to mention is just how dark it was, and not just it s chilling tone It felt the whole city sat under a blanket of perpetual black skies, two of the three main characters suffered with great inner turmoil and suicidal madness, most of the novel takes place in the late evenings or the dead of night, there are dark rooms, hallways, and tunnels existing in an almost Kafkaesque like subterranean world, and to top it all off the Blind are obsessed over There is doomed love, a crazed family, terrorism, political unrest and eventually murder If Sabato s seminal short novel El T nel 1948 owed a debt to French existentialists, this mighty beast feelslike a love letter to Buenos Aires But a letter covered in tears, sickness and blood Even poor old Jorge Luis Borges gets a cameo appearance, wondering down the street on a stick.The novel predominantly follows two narratives and various sub plots, the opening starts with young star crossed lovers Mart n and Alejandra Vidal Olmos, who meet by chance near a monument Mart n is just an ordinary man trying to find his way in the city, he loves herthan she loves him, but Alejandra does have some serious issues, she is, to put it bluntly, insane.She takes him to the house of her family one night, where things turn eerie and creepy for the reader, building a slow sense of dread There is a crazy uncle who plays a musical instrument, and an elderly woman who has been living upstairs for decades without ever leaving the room, with only a mummified head for company Once Mart n gets over the shock he doesn t really care, just wanting to be with her Mart n is as sincere as he is bewildered in his amorous aspirations towards Alejandra, he seems a heartbroken sweetheart Whereas she is needy, demanding and cruel towards him On seeing her with another man he wants to know who Fernando is believing it s her lover, when he is actually her father The moment he mentions this name the relationship is heading in the direction of emotional disaster and psychological carnage, thus leading to an act of madness All this is the past, looked back on by Mart n and Bruno Bruno being a writer who knew Alejandra s family, and had feelings for her mother.The narrative then switches to Alejandra s father, Fernando Vidal, a quite morbid man, who has a ludicrous and damn right terrifying obsession with the Blind as a youngster he poked the eyes out of a sparrow and watched as it flew around the room in great pain and fear , he believes Blind people are part of some sort of secret sect, he watches them, follows them, and is the creator of the bizarre Report on the Blind Fueled by paranoia and intrigue he ends up in an old apartment building after seeing two individuals leave thinking they are part of the sect He entersThe next 30 40 pages were filled with what can only be described as an hallucinogenic, claustrophobic, nerve shredding, heart stopping fear It felt like a cross between Alfred Hitchcock under psychosis and Dante s Inferno, Sabato used such wild and inventive imagery I just couldn t believe my eyes, and simply couldn t put the book down In fact for long spells I couldn t put it down Around this point about half way through it was THAT GOOD.Everything I have mentioned above only happens on the surface, the novel goes deeper than that, making it exceptional to read It could be seen simply as a chilling love story, or tale of madness Butthan anything it s just as much a philosophical wonder on history The novel expands on landowning baronies and industrial development, civil war, and social and economical problems There are moments included that many non Argentinians may fail to fully understand.I don t want to give the impression that On Heroes and Tombs is a tedious allegorical book on Argentinian history Other sub plots do exist, but they are only important if you choose them to be, they can stay in the background if one pleases There is a certain type of fictional narrative whereby the writer endeavors to free himself of an obsession that is not clear, even to himself This appears to be the only sort Sabato could write.The novel was like entering a dark labyrinth of insanity, going on a guided tour, before being thrown back into our world A stunningly powerful and haunting piece of work

    It is not clear to me why Sabato did not get Nobel Prize for literature This book is the masterpiece The plot is quite strange and it enabled Sabato to tell profound things about the world and human nature in general On Heroes and Tombs defenetly goes to my favorite shelf.

    It totally blew me away One of the finest gems of Latin American literature that should not be missed An incredible dense and complex masterpiece, it dives without fear into dark and unexplored crevices of the human mind and soul with unbelievable style and intensity Hats off to Ernesto Sabato

    Sobre H roes y Tumbas is the second novel by Ernesto Sabato It was a good complex read that explores the depth of humanity The book starts with an announcement that the late Alejandra Vidal Olmos has just shot her father and then burned herself alive, and so, the book is mainly about the lives of these two characters and what led to the afore mentioned situation, though the plot is developed through other characters.Before continuing, I must say that the book was divided into four chapters Ea Sobre H roes y Tumbas is the second novel by Ernesto Sabato It was a good complex read that explores the depth of humanity The book starts with an announcement that the late Alejandra Vidal Olmos has just shot her father and then burned herself alive, and so, the book is mainly about the lives of these two characters and what led to the afore mentioned situation, though the plot is developed through other characters.Before continuing, I must say that the book was divided into four chapters Each chapter s name has an important meaning, so don t forget them 1 El drag n y la princesa The dragon and the princess 2 Los rostros invisibles The invisible faces 3 Informe sobre ciegos Report on the blind 4 Un dios desconocido An unknown god Mart n is the protagonist of parts one and two of the novel He is a troubled teenager who feels loneliness most of the time He doesn t feel loved and he s in constant search for himself In this situation is in which he meets Alejandra, a beautiful and mysterious lady who claims to need him Thus, Mart n is quickly immersed in Alejandra s world, and thus, he falls in love with her, which only causesloneliness inside him, since Alejandra is very reserved and can be cruel at times, because of the things she faced in her past.And let s don t forget about part three of the book, the Report on the blind That one was simply astounding It could almost feel as fantasy In this part, for those who haven t read this book, Alejandra s father Fernando is the narrator He is obsessed with blind people For him, blind people are the ones who rule society by a supposed sect in which the members are solely blind From this, we can clearly see that Fernando is a paranoid and very selfish, what we would call an unlikeable character Having read both El T nel and this one, I can say for sure that Sabato was a talented writer Did you know he was a physicist and he left science to dedicate his entire time in writing No Well, now you can go and tell your family and friends this new fact Of course this was not necessary, but I wanted to mention it His writing is captivating and beautiful.One thing I really liked was that the characters were greatly developed, especially their psychological side, which sometimes is left untouched This is something that, in both of books I ve read by Sabato, is well done.The novel s title was perhaps what initially brought my attention to it I won t say anything concerning this matter besides that it is powerful Consider it Sobre h roes y tumbas In English, On Heroes and Tombs Heroes tombs Throughout the novel I wanted to understand the meaning of its title, and now, I finally do And it does justice to it You d better read it to get what I meanWhat else can I say besides what I ve already said Well, for one, I will most certainly read the last one of Sabato s novels And then, I recommend you to read this book It is complex, but it is intriguing and is well written I ll probably re read this eventually, just to make sure I understood it completely Not that re reading it is something bad No I will gladly read it a hundred times
