at last!!


Go Mario, Go! I remember my literature teacher in high school, she was so passionated when she talked about Mario. At first it was shocking for me, but then when she started reading extracts from his books. I will never forget those nice literature classes. Then after some years i had the chance of buying my first books and of course i bought Aunt Julia and the scriptwriter,it is my favorite,and then the others.

Well, I think Mario Vargas Llosa is a very creative, smart and clever writer. For one thing, I guess he makes things increasingly hard on himself. He writes about historical figures and historical places,too.For another, I think his work is difficult but he likes his work, so I guess there is nobody comparable in the spanish and english-language novel.

Delia Peñares Raymundo said...

In my opinion is one of the best writers of Peru and now in the world. He is very intelligent, disciplined, also He could organized their ideas with ease, for these reasons I admire him. But the only thing I dont liked about him was when He went to Spain and became a citizen of this country, because He lost the presidential elections in Peru in 1990. I think it was a little immaturity on his part. However, that does not diminish the merits of his great contributions to literature and I believe everyone Peruvians including myself are proud, because he has just awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010 for all their contributions.

Monica Vásquez said...

I was really happy when I saw this new that Mario Vargas Llosa won the Nobel Prize in Literature. I think Mario Vargas Llosa is an excellent writer. He’s wise and intelligent. He deserves this award, I think he was waiting for this award for many years and now he has it. He has written for many years, he wrote a lot of books and I believe it’s his time to be rewarded. I read "The time of the hero" and "The Feast of the Goat" when I was in high school and I liked them. He’s one of the best writers in the world. I’m really proud and happy for him.
Congratulations Mr. Vargas Llosa!!

EDER REYES said...

I THINK MARIO VARGAS LLOSA DESERVED TO WIN THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERARTURE SINCE A LONG TIME AGO, FOR ONE THING, HIS ONE OF THE BEST WRITERS ON THE WORLD AND THE EVIDENCE ARE THEIR GREAT LITERATURE WORK, SUCH US "LOS CACHORROS", "LA CIUDAD Y LOS PERROS" AND "LA CASA VERDE", FOR ANOTHER HE NEVER GIVE UP WHEN HE COULD NOT ACHIEVE BE A PRESIDENT FROM PERU SO HE KEPT WRITING AND NOW HE MAKE US PERUVIANS VERY PROUD.

Omar Jauregui said...

The Nobel Prize for Literature won by Mario Vargas Llosa was the best news of recent times in our country and values the Peruvian literature.
He deserved to win this award before, because he has shown his intelligence and wisdom of writer worldwide. Also, he is one of public figures whose opinions are taken into account in the political and social context nationally and internationally.
In my opinion, his best book is "La Ciudad y los Perros". First of all, criticizes the excessive discipline to the youth in military schools of Lima. Second of all, it highlights important values such as friendship, courage and repentance.
Good luck Mr. Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa another pride of Peru. I think, we should be happy about the prize was awarded to this wonderful Peruvian writer. I've only read one book of him (La ciudad y los perros) but I hope to read more books to follow learning from them. Finaly, I guess that he deserves recognition from all of us, our respect and admiration.

MARIA ELENA ARROYO BALAREZO (MALENA) said...

Mario Vargas Llosa is a famous writer and and many of his books express our reality. I think he is very intelligent and he could have been a good politician. Well I am so proud about our Peruvian writer Mario Vrgas Llosa.

Joselin Mianut said...

In my opinion Mario Vargas Llosa is an excellent writer and novelist. Also he can write about our reality and his writing styles are the best!
“La verdad de las mentiras” is my favorite because in this book, Mario Vargas Llosa ponders the question that many readers tend to ask: “What truth is there in your books?” And that is the question of whether what is said in books is true, lie, whether intended or not reflect reality or refute it.

Congratulations Mr. Vargas Llosa! (:

Génesis Cordova said...

Mario Vargas Llosa has written many of his works with a political background and social awareness as an example La fiesta del chivo, Conversacion en la Catedral.He doesn't need an exaggerated literature to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
My favorite book is Pantaleon y las vistitadoras y Los Cachorros.

Diego Alonso said...

I think that Mario Vargas LLosa is the best writer in Perú and a big person too. Few writers and talent persons have taken to politics, one of them was Mario Vargas Llosa but we will fail. For that, now, we should be happy and proud of that. The only way to thank him is to read their literary works. Congratulations Mario Vargas Llosa.

winny Mendoza said...

Mario Vargas llosa is also the best novelist,and about his new work called " el sueño de celta" , i would like to read this work, I hope he keeps winning awards, and also continue doing works

Smith CantO said...

I really admire the writers, between them to this master of the literature (mario vargas llosa). I think that all the writers were born with a talent for express their thoughts in the books, using differents peculiar ways of expressing. But there is something that is called me the attention in Vargas Llosa and is that he transcribes his own experiences and,also, he shows the reality of our country such as the "the time of hero". Which turns it in a genius of the literature.

Acxel Jara Rivadeneyra said...

Well, I think Mr Llosa ia an excellent writer, he has a unique style, because I think he write whit his heart so he expresses his feelings in his books.. I never read a book of Vargas Llosa but I would like to read because whit this prize the people know he is a good writer...Finally I think Vargas Llosa is only in Peru so the people need a Vargas Llosa for president, He can improve peru ....

Angela Berenicce Fernández Vega said...

At last! After all this time, Vargas Llosa is recognized for his excellent work on the literature, I have never read his books so far, but I always carried many topics about him and his great books in literature course, which incidentally is my favorite subject . I think this award will help a lot to motivate people to read more. I love and am proud of my country, my Peru! I think things like this are the things that make us grow bigger so long, each as a person and all as a team!

Josue Orduña said...

I think that Mario Vargas LLosa is an excellent writer.
He has a great range of styles and a great range of subjects, from comedies to really profound political analysis. His best-known works include “Conversation in the Cathedral’’ and “The Green House." . By the way, Mario Vargas LLosa is the most popular novelist In Peru and all over the word. He is well-known recognized.

Kevin Garcia Alavrez said...

I think that, he is the besy writer in south america. I have a lot of admiration for him. but I desagree when he got married with his uncle but long he had to win the nobel prize. my favorite work is the city and the dogs because he tell us about the colegio militar Leoncio prado, he share with us his esperence.

victor De La Cruz said...
