I read Vargas Llosa many years ago in grad school (La ciudad y los perros; La casa verde) and found him overrated. This book has done nothing to change that opinion. Writers like Eliseo Alberto or Leonardo Padura (to name but two) are better. I could not stop laughing for the entire first half of the novel and then couldn't put it down afterwards as I was entranced by the dramatic (yet expected) crash and burn of the service and sect. Some criticize that this was a weak effort on Llosa's part but what they miss is the fact that Llosa himself knew that the book was going to be absurd and admits that this was the easiest book for him to write and the most fun.

En esta novela, el premio Nobel Mario Vargas Llosa subraya el eterno debate entre verdad y mentira, entre necesidad y virtud, y las perniciosas consecuencias que depara a veces la observancia rigurosa del deber. Pantaleón Pantoja, un capitán del Ejército recientemente ascendido, recibe la misión de establecer un servicio de prostitución para las Fuerzas Armadas del Perú en el más absoluto secreto militar. Estricto cumplidor del deber, se traslada a Iquitos, en plena selva, para llevar a cabo su cometido, al que se entrega con tal obcecación que termina por poner en peligro el engranaje que él mismo ha puesto en movimiento. Concebida y ensamblada con pericia de maestro, Pantaleón y las visitadoras supone un giro en la obra narrativa de Mario Vargas Llosa. El realismo social presente en sus primeras obras da paso a una precisa dosificación del sentido del humor, la sátira y la ironía que enriquecen sin mesura el desarrollo de su peculiar universo literario. «Intenté al principio contar esta historia en serio. Descubrí que era imposible. Fue una experiencia liberadora, que me reveló las posibilidades del juego y el humor en la literatura.»Mario Vargas Llosa
Very funny satire about Peruvian Army. I brought the book as a gift for a friend who speaks Spanish.
I had read some other books from Vargas llosa but this was very boring
I was skipping this book for so long for unforeseen reasons, finally I got to get it and read it, how disappointing, it has a good star, then it get so bored and repetitive. At least it was a good reason to practice my fast reading.
A fictional account of an actual event that puts the purpose of the Peruvian military in a whole new light.
I cant ask to Sellers anything also, the pages are great quality, cover Okay standards.
Book come in mail like, short date.
well fast business done here.
compare to others..
"Pantaleon y las visitadoras" is based on a true story about a Peruvian General that is assigned the unbelievable task of organizing a prostitution service for the military who are in the Amazon river area. As incredible as it may sound, not only did General Pantaleón Pantoja build an amazingly efficient and productive enterprise (if those adjectives can be used to describe it), but he also performed his duty with full dedication and effort. Many aspects of this situation let the author turn this story into a hilarious account of facts. For example Pantoja and his project had to remain undercover even from his own family, so as the military cannot be traced back into the development of such an immoral mission. So, he has to pretend to be a civilian who is just doing business, which of course gets more difficult as time goes by. Also, the letters that Pantoja sends to his superiors informing the project's progress are a perfect blend of formalism and ridicule. Now, in my opinion, this is one of the best books I've ever read for many reasons, of course that in the first place because of the story, because the way it was written and because of the constant reminder that sometimes reality can surpass the most creative fiction.
The author says he wrote it at the same time he wrote the screenplay, and it shows. The result is a very lightweight book, much of which resembles a film script more than a novel.

Moreover, he starts by making light of rape, which if you've even been near a rape or attempted rape (especially of a spouse, relative or girlfriend) is very definitely not a laughing matter. This has nothing to do with being PC or not. (Vargas Llosa seems to have a thing about sex; he also included some gratuitous, irrelevant and actually rather silly sex scenes in "La guerra del fin del mundo.") Some kind of self-imposed machismo? Who knows?

I read Vargas Llosa many years ago in grad school (La ciudad y los perros; La casa verde) and found him overrated. This book has done nothing to change that opinion. Writers like Eliseo Alberto or Leonardo Padura (to name but two) are better.
Summary:

Based on a true story, Captain Pantoja is transferred to Iquitos, Peru, an obscure town in Peru's Amazon, to set up a prostitution service for the Peruvian Armed Forces due to the influx of rapes caused by soldiers' pent up sexual frustrations. Dressed as a civilian, the service must be kept secret to all including his wife as this would cause a scandal for the Peruvian Army. Along with the prostitution service's great rise success and fame, a religious sect is building up in magnitude, as they leave behind them a trail of crucified animals bodies and people. Although a seemingly dark story, this book is a humorous look (presented as official army documents and conversations) at the absurdity behind the army and religious sects as both clash in the end for a dramatic result.

My thoughts:

I loved this book! I could not stop laughing for the entire first half of the novel and then couldn't put it down afterwards as I was entranced by the dramatic (yet expected) crash and burn of the service and sect.

Some criticize that this was a weak effort on Llosa's part but what they miss is the fact that Llosa himself knew that the book was going to be absurd and admits that this was the easiest book for him to write and the most fun. It was not meant to be serious and philosophical.

The idea of a prostitution service in the army screams absurdity and can only be met by laughter and hilarity especially with a character such as Captain Pantoja. The style of the book enhances the plot as you see how the captain's obsessive nature for perfection meets the world of prostitution.

A wonderful book with high high recomendations to others. If you've been reading serious novels lately, this is definitely a good way to relax and laugh.
