Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. No lo recomiendo sencillamente porque no es mi estilo de literatura y la historia no engancha tanto, a pesar de ser un tema interesante. Read this book online here: After reading a history of zzuela Mexican Revolution, I was hoping to find a fictionalized version of it that would enhance my unverdogs of the events that took place. I was led to Mariano Azuela’s book The Underdogsor, as it’s literally translated, The Qzuela From Belowwith the presumption that this would be that book.

It was a slow, scattered book, with hardly any mention of what the revolution was really like—t Read this book online here: It was a slow, scattered book, with hardly any mention of what the revolution was really like—thankfully, the descriptions that were included, those of the ruined towns and ruthless underdgs mindsets ubderdogs the men, were accurate. But most of the time the soldiers talked amongst themselves in dialogue that was boring and vague.


Azuela provided very little background to the revolution, which could be a good thing, but by still paralleling his plot with actual people and places, his failure to provide any context made the book annoying. Azuela did not spend any time making the characters interesting or even likable; the book was so quick that characters came in and out with hardly any real concept of who they were and in what context of the revolution they fought.

The Underdogs: A Novel of the Mexican Revolution by Mariano Azuela – Free Ebook

This book was written during the revolution itself, so I recognize that it could not be written with hindsight of the whole decade-long affair. But it should have been; it should have been a much more developed story. This certainly sets out a very nihilist view of its protagonists. There’s very little to like about the book or its story – probably because it’s based on first-hand experiences.

The Underdogs – A Novel of the Mexican Revolution

A group of murders, rapists, and thieves hiding behind a cause; whether they admit this to themselves or not. The style reads like a radio play’s script; lots of verbose dialogue and exposition that could have been done via description instead.

Required reading for my English class. I mean yeah it showed me how war can destroy soldiers and eventually it’s all they’ve ever seemed to know. At least I also read a Hispanic book. I read about three chapters, but decided that because of the language, I wouldn’t continue. I was interested in the story.

It’s a book very easy to read becouse is short and It wasn’t too boring like I was thinking, It’s just not my kind of books. This book is about Mexican revolution. I read it for the school.

Not one of my favorite reads, but Azuela gives his reader’s an inside look at the lives of those who fought in the revolution.
