In Spain it is quite common to read and see the works translated. A film is often called. This is what I'm thinking while reading this book.
It 'hard to write this book, the biographer, politics and football supporters. In particular, about the soccer game: you are for or against. Barcelona or Madrid, Manchester or Liverpool, or in this case, Argentina or England.
This is what I think of this book, it says to those who are in favorArgentina and Maradona, and those against him and they are.
This is a book of political, social and religious. The first chapter is called "resurrection". It 'also on politics, the Falklands War in 1982 and this is football. So the image of Diego Maradona is outlined.
In the introduction to this biography the author writes about the time that slips into a depression, in parallel with what happened with Maradona at that time. The importance of thisThe revelation is more important than I initially thought. I keep wondering why they feel depressed at the end of this biography. He realized what he did? And 'I wonder?
The biography was never approved by Maradona, but that happens a lot. However, the products can be very interesting. This work has been prepared with care, but it is clear from those who would wonder, digested, "Who is the author of this work, Jimmy Burns. WhatPart is? "
He turns out to be English and Spanish roots, and that the first problem. This is the second problem is that the link was too much in a single work: politics, social life and religion.
The Argentine fan does not accept the result, and Burns is quite open about it in his introduction.
"In England," he writes, "people would love it if a foreigner writing about Charles and Diana." But Argentina has not seen it. I thinkfeel betrayed.
The conflict starts from the beginning, with the subtitle: the hand of God? Or is the title itself. And "The Life of Diego Maradona," the subtitle? The author has forgotten his past when he did this in Mexico, when Argentina played against England?
The fact that Burns has Spanish roots (he was born in Madrid) does not change the fact that the biography is not accepted in South America. Spain is as much a rival as the UK isArgentina.
The religious center makes it less credible. Football and religion form a stable couple, but also an explosive couple. Why is the book with religious themes, like "Resurrection" structured ", gave birth to a child", and "the temple", is what I wonder. The hand of God from the first phrase you learn the basic premise: This is the story of a player who thought he was God and suffered as a result. "
The explicit message makes you wonder. How he was able tosafe? Or let me rephrase this, it might be suffered for other reasons. Or if he is God, if he wants to start thinking about that?
But this and many other issues no longer count, the sentence had been sentenced ...
The point of social, political and religious views, the work more challenging and less universal. Either you like the idea or not. They are both on the British side of the Falklands War or the Falklands war the Argentine side of the same. Youbelieve what he writes about the Argentine culture, about their "hero" Martin Fierro about their language and the role of "deception" or think that everything is fiction and the so-called "Fair Play" laughed the United Kingdom.
In line with this, it is possible that the actual content of calcium and the person is not given by Maradona. There are enough interesting content to Pele and Cruyff and Burns' his opinion on the technical qualities of Maradona.
And this is myReview. When it comes to the life of Maradona, I prefer not "film" subtitle, but the real thing, reading from the field and not by a foreign journalist. To read from a native speaker, or worse, someone from Uruguay, was an Argentine citizen. This is why I prefer "I am Diego" by Daniel Arcucci and Ernesto Cherquis Biala. With the risk that more than a biography autobiography, but the conclusion would be the same? As a judge, I would like most people, theBenefit of the doubt.
Not God, only Diego.
