Arráncame la vida por Ángeles Mastretta

 

Arráncame La Vida

Arráncame la vida es la historia de Catalina Guzmán de Ascencio, una mujer de Puebla viviendo en México durante los años 1930 y 1940.  Catalina relata sobre su matrimonio a los dieciséis años a un hombre  político veinte años mayor que ella. A través de los años, revela la vida compleja de ser esposa de un hombre ambicioso y la miramos transformarse desde una joven ingenua hasta una mujer madura y sabia. 

 El estilo narrativo de Mastretta toma un ritmo sutil. No es un libro de acción, sino de observación e intriga lenta. En un mundo y época dominado por los anhelos de los hombres, vemos como Catalina y sus amigas van realizando sus deseos.  Sobre todo los de Catalina, que a través de la tragedia se convierte, sin desearlo en una política aun mas sabia que su marido.  

 La película (del mismo nombre) sigue a los eventos principales del libro con gran fidelidad.   ¡Además, conviene verla por el escenario y vestuario magnifico!
