    1. In Spanish author Jon Bilboa s taut, tightly written ominous novel, Still the Same Man, middle aged Joanes has a chance encounter which leads to a terrible appointment with fate Joanes was once a top student with a promising career ahead of him, but now in middle age, Joanes, the owner of a dying air conditioning company, is facing failure Dependent on the charity of his bombastic, wealthy artist father in law, Joanes, his patient wife and his teenage daughter, find themselves in a Mexican resor [...]

    2. La cita que da comienzo al libro de Jon Bilbao Ribadesella, 1972 , del escritor Graham Greene, de su obra El tercer hombre, dice as Un hombre no cambia porque descubras m s cosas sobre l Sigue siendo el mismo.Cuando el libro est llegando a su fin leemos lo siguiente Esa furia que sientes no es suficiente No te ha cambiado Sigues siendo el mismo de antes pag 149 Si a un personaje le pase lo que le pase siguiera siendo el mismo, si no nos encontr semos ante un viaje horizontal, vertical, o transve [...]

    3. Muy bueno, devorado en una noche y media Primer libro que leo de Jon Bilbao y no ser el ltimo, me ha ganado Padre, hijos y primates es un libro corto pero intenso que atrapa y sobrecoge, que te recuerda lo peor de ti y todo ser humano, odio, ira, venganza No quiero contaros nada de la trama, pero este libro es toda una experiencia.

    4. The main character Joanes, a failing air conditioning sales person, and his wife and daughter are brought to Cancun, Mexico for his father in law s second marraige to a woman a number of years younger than him When in Mexico, a hurricane is due to hit the resort causing the holidaymakers to be evacuated Joanes on the morning of the evacuation takes a drive due to the stress of it being with his father in law for considerable time i thought saunas were for destressing, evidentally it depends on t [...]

    5. Awful,I didn t finish it I could only get halfway through this book I can t believe it has such a high rating.The language is so clipped and terse The author does not build up any character and the dialogue jumps around form subject to subject sometimes in the same sentence He does not develop a character, any of them I found it just unbelievable the idea that the professor denied him of the job he was about to start He had no evidence whatsoever that the professor ruined his chances He just ass [...]

    6. El nico pero que le pongo a esta novela es la casualidad de que se encuentren profesor y alumno enfrentados de antiguo en unas circunstancias tan novelescas Si dejamos esto de lado y suspendemos la incredulidad nos encontramos con la habitual maestr a de Jon Bilbao en retratar a seres ego stas y crueles en situaciones al l mite.

    7. The cover image on Jon Bilbao s STILL THE SAME MAN tells it all It shows a man reflected in the eye of some kind of monster Only after reading the book does one understand that this is a chimp s eye view of man and the monster might not be the chimp This image frames the key questions of Bilbao s tense and engaging novel Is man predator or prey What are the limits of man s control over nature Joanes had a bright future as an engineering student He believes his career derailed because of disparag [...]

    8. Un libro interesante, de los que se leen casi de una sentada pero te dejan cavilando sobre qu hay detr s de lo que se muestra Le pongo un pero no comulgo demasiado con el encadenamiento de eventos altamente improbables para hacer avanzar una trama Es algo asumido conscientemente por el autor para sugerir la sumisi n de los acontecimientos a un hado o destino previamente escrito Es posible, en cualquier caso a mi me resulta artificioso.En el lado positivo, mucho el lenguaje literario simple y dir [...]

    9. Esperaba m s de este libro Sin entrar en un an lisis profundo, ciertos giros en la historia me parecieron forzados y no termin de cre rmelos.
