The slope curled round the base of the mountain whose peak was at the northern edge of the ridge upon which Aurelio and Don Emmanuel had stood, and which was now concealed by the very cloud that had revealed to them their spirits, beautiful in grace and in glory.

Louis De Bernières wrote a South American trilogy, consisting of: 1) The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts; 2) Señor Vivo and the Coca Lord; 3) The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman. His characters are multiple.

I was mildly disappointed that Don Emmanuel’s nether parts play a very minor role in the story. The characters in Don Emmanuel’s fictional country did not speak up in their own voices. In a very round about way, it is essentially the story of an impoverished, insignificant village and its hilariously devious victory over the corrupt and brutal military establishment. It is a temporary victory. I found the surreal salvation of the village to be the weakest part of the story. The best parts concern individual characters who are drawn realistically, but with great affection and humor.

As a military man he had never really known freedom anyway, bound up as he was with regulations and duties. To some extent he was oppressed by boredom, and the time hung heavily with him. stered in the same hut as Dona Constanza, but even though they had known each other before the events here related, they found that they had little in common, and were not affected by incarceration in the same way. What tortured General Fuerte was that he no longer knew what to think

Even Don Emmanuel, the book’s namesake, was an afterthought of a character whose eponymous placement in the book’s title seems to be the most whimsical and capricious of mysteries. I came into this book with high expectations. I was expecting a book that was sultry, magical, well-written, and tempered with a balanced humor. To be honest I found it a bit boring. It took me half of the book to understand exactly what was going on and who was on who's side of the fight.

This rambunctious first novel by the author of the bestselling Corelli's Mandolin is set in an impoverished, violent, yet ravishingly beautiful country somewhere in South America. When the haughty Dona Constanza decides to divert a river to fill her swimming pool, the consequences are at once tragic, heroic, and outrageously funny. "Walks a precarious edge between slapstick and pathos, never once losing its balance."--Washington Post Book World.
