    1 thought on “The Lamentable Journey of Omaha Bigelow Into the Impenetrable Loisaida Jungle”

    1. I was strongly impressed with the Lamentable Journey of Omaha Bigelow, the tale of a gutter punk 34 year old who catches the eye of 15 year old Puerto Rican Bruja. Omaha Bigelow has the curse of a underdeveloped male member and his Bruja girlfriend is willing to improve him magically, both his genetic abnormality as well as giving him success in life. However these characters are human and, in the manner of a Grecian fable, Omaha's life becomes a contemptible Iliad of Woes. There is almost nothi [...]

    2. The beginning of this book is amazing, especially if you have a connection to New York's lower east side. The magical realism- Puerto Rican witches and animal transformations and bohongo enlargments all actually make sense if you've felt the energy of the LES. But the momentum kind of tapers off and the story gets bogged down in all the characters, and to an annoying extent, the author interjecting himself upon the action. At first the author-as-character as cute, but then it just got old. And t [...]

    3. --from my 2005 review in The San Juan Star--Wassup with the Nuyoricans on the Lower East Side? Well, homegirls are morphing into squirrels and monkeys and seagulls to get around the neighborhood, and occasionally startling an onlooker by fully feathering into magnificent peacocks. The homeboys, who slouch around the projects in baggy clothes by day, are honing in by night on radar, sonar, electronics, navigation and all the other specializations needed for the Puerto Rican Navy being formed to p [...]

    4. Ok - I was that close (holding up two fingers pinched close together) to finishing this book. The books fantasy aspect of a secret Puerto Rican society controlling the social structure of the world and use of animal transforming witches was just too overwhelming for moi comprehend. There was no background structure to hold it together and the structure offered was itself a strange manifestation. Men In Black (the movie) did a much better job of connecting the viewer to an almost believable fanta [...]

    5. This is one of the best books I've ever read.Other folks have remarked that the author "intrudes" on the work, as if he's a kid who just can't stop himself from gorging on something bad for him. Yunque is not just a kid with a bad habit, but a writer in full control of his literary techniques. Yes, it's a rather experimental device, but it's just that - an intentional device. This novel is not what the first couple of chapters might lead you to expect. That is, it's not a hipster action novel wi [...]

    6. This book made my eyes burn with ick. The first half is well-written, gripping and fast-paced. However, inexcusably sexual material in it is disgustingly vivid. It just seems as if the author wrote down whatever he wanted about all things gross! The second half of the book is even more excruciating because it abandons all snappy plot points in exchange for silly dialogues between the author and protagonists. If that weren't deeply annoying enough, we also get Vega's senseless political musings i [...]

    7. the author is so wildly full of himself that his dialogues with the reader, which make up roughly half the book, quickly become intolerable. the story itself is very fine and creative, but he frequently suggests that if you just want to get back to the plot then you're only interested in trash fiction and not "real literature." the many fine authors he cites as example of real literature, however, manage to tell THEIR stories without constant interruption to explain obvious plot devices and meta [...]

    8. Over the top & gratuitous, it's like Christopher Moore and Tom Robbins mixed together (with some salsa & merengue). Interesting, a bit too sexual at times, but a good read.

    9. yunque tears it up in this experimental piece of fiction, with all kinds of surreal twists and turnsch of it taking place in post 9/11 new york. he's the puerto rican tom robbins!
