With The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts, Louis de Bernières's sardonic pen has concocted a spicy novel, set in a fictitious Latin American country, with all the tragedy, ribaldry and humour Bernières can muster from a debauched military, a clueless oligarchy and an unconventional band of guerrillas. There's a plague of laughing, a flood of magical cats and a torture-happy colonel. The cities, villages, politics and discourse are an inspired amalgam of Latin Americana, but the comedy, horror, adventure and vibrant individuals are pure de Bernières.

I didn't know what to make of this really, but it was very well written, atmospheric and sardonically funny in places. Not something I'd normally read though!

Picked up at bookcrosser's meetup 9.7.05. Loved Captain Corelli so i'm looking forward to this one.

Have read quite a few Louis de Bernieres and I think by comparison this is not one of the best. It was a bit too strange and a bit too nasty for me.

It's one of those books that I can really appreciate because it's interesting and very well-written but I struggled to keep going. A solid six out of ten but nothing more.
