review Pandora al Congo Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Auesta història va començar amb tres enterraments i va acabar amb un cor trencat el meu L´estiu de 1914 jo tenia 19 anysMarcus Garvey empresonat a Londres pot ser condemnat a mort L´acusen d´haver assassinat dos germans William i Richard arist?. Pandora in the Congo is narrated by Thomas Tommy Thomson writing what he says is the same book yet again some sixty years after he first wrote it It s a bit different this time as he writes the story behind and around the story as well but stillThomson grew up in an orphanage so well liked there that they let him stay another four years after they were supposed to send him out into the wild world at fifteen He developed a love of reading there and the ambition to become a writer When he left the orphanage he moved into Mrs Pinkerton s boarding house set to embark on his writing career his most prized possession his typewriter And one early opportunity comes his way when a writer offers him a gig helping to churn out the books in the Doctor Flag series For twenty years three Doctor Flag titles each eighty pages long appeared each week Doctor Flag didn t write them of course he had a ghost writer and in 1914 the then nineteen year old Thomson becomes the ghost to the ghost and it turns out not even uite that It wasn t great money but it was an opportunity and though Thomson was being taken advantage of even if he didn t know how much he was at least writing For his first project he gets the outline to a novel to be called Pandora in the Congo He s told to stick to the script wildly improbable and unrealistic though it is just like all the Doctor Flag books and despite some reservations he does as he s told This particular meal ticket only lasts so long but there s someone who is impressed by Thomson s work the lawyer Edward Norton And Norton has a proposition for the newly unemployed would be author a different kind of ghost writing Norton has a client named Marcus Garvey who is to be tried for the murder of two young noblemen Richard and William Craver while serving them on an expedition to the Congo Garvey is to tell his side of the story to Thomson who is then to write it in book form Thomson doesn t understand what good it will do but Norton says he s run out of other ideas and hopes that something might come of it The money is better than what he got for the Doctor Flag novels so Thomson takes the job Garvey is locked up until his trial and he s only allowed to receive visitors occasionally so it takes uite a while for Thomson to get the whole story And in this version he also describes some of what happened in his own life in that period from life at the boarding house to eventually his getting called up to fight in World War I which helps delay the trial itself for years so everything drags on for uite a while Garvey s story is a pretty sensational one From lowly helper on the family estate he gets roped into joining the spoiled and crude brothers on their grand African adventure They head into darkest Congo searching for gold and Garvey tells a horror story of their exploitation of the natives along the way first chaining them together to carry the supplies deep into the jungle and replacing those who die off with those they grab in the villages they pass through then forcing them to dig a hole in the ground that becomes their goldmine and in which their slave labourers are kept like in a cage There is gold here but soon there are also odd sounds to be heard down there As in Cold Skin S nchez Pi ol has a thing for otherworldly creatures Here they are tectons tall pale not uite human creatures who come up through tunnels in the ground One of the Africans on the expedition tells Garvey that it s exactly like what his grand father said about the whites first they send the missionaries who threaten them with hell then come the thieving traders and finally come the soldiers and it looks like it s much the same with the tectons There is however also a love interest Amgam one of the tectons they capture and whom Garvey falls for but who one of the brothers takes and closely watches as his own property Despite the threat of the tectons the brothers are blinded by the thought of the great riches they are mining daily and they refuse to give up the place even after their labourers flee The tectons on the other hand keep coming back for and it comes to some serious confrontations Ultimately Garvey is the only survivor The book Thomson writes is an heroic tale when it s published it also serves its purpose in helping at Garvey s trial But Thomson has a few doubts and concerns There s that tall veiled woman he sees waiting to visit the jail for example Thomson and the reader know he s being manipulated the uestion is of course to what extent S nchez Pi ol has some fun with this but it s not uite as much fun as one might have hoped for Classic adventure yarn and metafictional game S nchez Pi ol aims high but only makes it halfway there The adventure story is decent but not exceptional enough by itself and it does get fairly drawn out The local and domestic parts are often even rougher Mr MacMahon s farting at the boarding house and Mrs Pinkerton s shell less turtle Marie Antoinette both seem fairly desperate attempts to add some humour and colour and they re far from the only examples S nchez Pi ol tries hard but he doesn t seem to have the right feel for this specifically English kind of tale of colonial adventure of that time it s close but simply not right The final twists and explanations are clever enough in the abstract but as told come across as a bit of a let down especially since it s taken so long to get there Indeed the whole novel and the many good ideas behind it from the social commentary and allegories to the take on both reading and writing do better in summary form than in what S nchez Pi ol does with them Not that it s a bad read it s just not nearly as fun or exciting as it should be
