  • By Ian on September 21, 2012

    A well written history of the dark side of recent Chilean events by an experienced writer who actually lived through those perilous times - and who survived to tell the story as well as keep alive a chapter in the country's past that, once again, has to remind everybody of: "Never Again!"

    This is informative only for someone who has slept through the past 3 decades. It starts out promising as a personal account but never goes beyond that.

  • By Mr Tom Birtwistle on March 4, 2003

    Although Dorfman's views of the years of dictatorship are driven as much by emotion and opposition as they are by fact, his book about the Pinochet regime and the subsequent human rights trial serves as an interesting document to the chilean experience of dictatorship.The true extent of the horrors that occured in Chile may never be fully known but Dorfman's book about his experience of the dictatorship and his emotions as a Chilean is an essential document to the Chilean healing process.Some of the passages are extremely well written and the end of the book in particular raises some intersting questions.There are without question finer books concerning the period, but this is the most emotional work available and Dorfman's lament for Chile is at times very powerful.

    This book is basic to understand from a personal perspective how the chilean people suffered under this animal regime. It shows how all bullies, those who get theirs kicks hurting other human beings become pathetic cowards when they are asked to pay for their acts.

    One should keep in mind that this is a personal and political view of the Pinochet case. The book is good in the fact that it is a personal account of a man who had friends who are among the disapeared of Chile. If you are interested in a personal account than by this book, however if you are interested in an acccount of Pinochet policies by a book exclusivly about his regime.

    This is essential reading for anyone wanting to comprehend the crimes of Pinochet and the complicity of the United States government. As is always the case with Dorfman's books, it is beautifully written.

    Another of Dorfman "Masterpieces". This is the same guy who wrote how Donald Duck was an instrument of American Imperialism. (Yeah, really).Dorfman is one of those Allende-Orphans who still believes everything that happened in Chile was because of this really, really bad man named Pinochet. Him, Allende, the left, the guerillas, did nothing wrong. The book is just a reflection of such a biased view.I'm glad to be the first one reviewing this book. It means few are paying attention to this clown-author.
