Jul 07, Meredith Holley rated it did not like it Shelves: Did you ever wish that Boogie Nights was a book set libdo the time of the lobro of the Aztec empire? Well, don’t tell Gary Jennings that because I’m pretty sure it would hurt his feelings. It’s not really something I would have thought you’d need to be specific about, but kids are so “creative” axteca days.
It’s about the penis of this other dude who is able to aztrca with exotic Did you ever wish that Boogie Nights was a book set in the time of the fall of the Aztec empire? It’s about the penis of this other libfo who is able to “visit” with exotic tribes and still make axteca back in time for the major happenings of Spanish conquest.
I find it apropos to quote the GR summary of the book to give you a basic outline of what you jenniings expect to find “under the aztecq of this novel. This was obviously written by someone who decided not to actually read the book, but wanted to guess what it was about quotes added for emphasis: Here is the “extraordinary” story of the last and “greatest” native civilization of North America, at the “height” of its “magnificent” sic.
It is a story told in the words of one of the most “robust” and memorable characters in modern fiction. His name is Mixtil–Dark Cloud. So much is lost in translation. The best thing about this book was the woman who gave it to me. I was working in this law office with four lawyers all male and four assistants all female.
I had just moved into a new house, and a woman I knew decided to throw me this “house-warming shower,” which was a pretty painful experience for me but well-meaning of livro. The game she came up with like ya do for a “shower” was that everyone had to give me a book I would hate. This stressed out all the attendees those who were aztdca my friends because many of them are friends with me only because of books, so they felt like they had to bring a book I would actually love.
It turned into a situation where all these women men aren’t allowed to come to showers, don’t you know? So, Jemnings worked with this one woman, who in many kibro was an average, comfortable mom type. In a lot of other ways, she reminded me of a character from the Addams Family, though. She had this white streak in her black hair, which was cut into a mullet. She also had this way of shuffling around the office that was pretty unique.
You know how lego people walk by moving their whole bodies? It was kind of like that. Also, she had the Addams Family theme song as her ring tone.

I never asked her about it, but I figured she made a lot of style choices based on that show. Also, she had a speech disorder jenhings she replaced her the ‘r’ sound with the ‘w’ sound. When I first met her, I honestly thought she had an accent.
At one point the other assistants and I were out to lunch, and I asked her, “So, where are you from?
While I think Boogie Nights is a great movie, there are some other times and places to which I feel it might not translate well. For example, space would totally work, as would reality TV and other entertainment genres music, game shows, theater, etc. Bill Clinton, likewise, has absolutely set us up for a political re-make.

As some of you may already be aware, I’m not all that keen on marathon reads. Losing a month out of your life for something like Stephen King’s Insomnia will do that to you.
Sangre Azteca by Gary Jennings (2 star ratings)
It’s for that reason that after buying Aztec it sat kennings my shelf for several months before deciding to venture into it. Well, two months later I can look back on this as a time travel trip well this review from my website Whew!
Well, two months later I can look back on this as a time travel trip well worth the effort. This review could easily be placed in any of my pages.
Aztec is all of these, and I must warn you, that apart from being a wonderful history lesson an Aztec recounts his life story to the conquering Spanish officialsthis novel is not for the squeamish or easily offended. There are graphic depictions of human sacrifice and torture, and explicit and illicit sex scenes.
So now you know what you’re in for. Highly recommended, and best read during a heatwave. View all 4 comments. Mar 04, Szplug rated it really liked it. Jennings was one hell of a storyteller: Raptor was a thrilling and transgressive post-Roman romp, and The Journeyer fleshed out the eastward travels and adventures of Marco Polo with an exotic embellishment, a sexy and spicy pomp; but Aztec was my introduction to his colorful and hot-blooded novels, and remains a fond favorite.
Sure, this overlong confession given by a captured Aztec aristocrat to his monastic interlocutors in the aftermath of Great Montezuma’s empire being flushed down the Jennings was one hell of a storyteller: Good grief, what a overload to the oibro system this puppy turned out to be. Mesoamerican historical fiction porn at its absolute peak entertainment value. Simulates Obelix tapping at his forehead Those Aztecs were crazy!
Jun 20, Linda C. This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is simply the best single novel that I have ever read. There is human sacrifice galore as well as graphic and I mean graphic violence and sexuality. However, the drama is top notch and there are times when you must stop reading because you are overwhelmed by the spectacle of the story. I gave this book as an impulse buy to my mother for Christmas one year. I had no idea what it was like, I simply went by some fabulous blurbs This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is simply the best single novel that I have ever read.
I had no idea what it was like, I simply went by some fabulous blurbs on the cover and that she liked fat historical novels.
I figured she had read lots of stories about Mary Queen of Scots and probably hadn’t read one about the history of Mexico aztecca the Spanish Conquistadors. I was right about aztteca part, but had no idea what I was truly giving my mother. She was astounded by the gift, as was my father.

The next year at Christmas she gave me the book back, but by that time it had gone through at least six pairs of hands. I was shocked when I read it, but the story still is seared in my brain. Jan 16, Nate rated it it was gafy Shelves: It’s the jennibgs of the titularly Aztec jennkngs named Mixtli I guess they were actually called Mexica but somewhere along the way they picked up the name Aztec which derives from their mythological ancestral origin place Aztlan, I picked up like a thousand facts like this from this book and it hurt my brain from his weird childhood to weird adulthood to weird old age.
Along the way he extensively travels Mexico and gets involved in dozens of adventures and tragedies, aztrca This book was Thankfully as gross and weird as this book can get most of it is directly related to the plot and somehow didn’t seem gratuitous or superfluous. At the very least it added to the pervasive sense of being in this old, dead world that didn’t know or care that Judeo-Christian based value systems even existed.
All azzteca that good clean stuff really didn’t impress on me as much as all the incredibly thorough and vivid detail of this destroyed world. Mixtli travels to dozens of settlements ranging from a handful of decrepit huts deep in the jungle to the shining limestone of Tenochtitlan and the people in them are just as varied as the places they inhabit.
Best of all, this person could be male or female. And these people took up like 5 pages of this book. It’s so full of this stuff that you can just get lost in it. This book also boasted a protagonist that’s pretty different from the usual fare. He’s not a hero or even really an anti-hero He’s capable of very touching emotion, but he can also be a jerk. And he also has a severe visual impairment.
