The Old Man Who Read Love Stories Review

It accurately reflects my sensibilities as a human being. In the town of El Idilio, buried deep in the jungle on the bank of a small Amazon tributary, lives 60 year old Antonio Bolivar Richard Dreyfuss. Antonio has lived most of his life in the jungle and knows it intimately. A recluse, he has discovered a quiet passion for romantic tales, which he reads with great appetite. He shares this preoccupation with a local servant girl, Josefina Cathy Tyson , and together, through their common interest, they are falling in love. The visiting Dentist Hugo Weaving , a swaggering lothario with questionable medical skills, becomes Antonio's confidant, procuring romantic novels and encouraging Antonio's advances toward Josefina. But all is not tranquil in this remote, uncivilized corner of the world. Outsiders have intruded, killing a jaguar's cubs and upsetting the fragile balance between man and nature. Now, seeking her revenge, the enraged mother jaguar begins killing humans, apparently at random. El Idilio's Mayor, Timothy Spall , known locally as "the Slimy Toad", decides something must be done and organizes a hunting party.

This novella examines the interrelationship between man and nature. It looks at the delicate balance provided by man when he respects the natural world, and the destructive forces that work against it when disrupted by the ignorant.

Unable to return to his previous village, the poor forgive everything but failure, Antonio settles in the village of El Idilio the Idyllget a sense of how this. Honor, tradition, wisdom, all themes in a slight volume that readers will breeze through as danger mounts and admiration for the old man grows. Very nicely done.
