BENDÍCEME, ÚLTIMA/ BLESS ME, ULTIMA

by | Read by Dario Tangelson

Spanish Audio • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Dario Tangelson lleva esta novela a un nuevo nivel por su narración excelente. Se trata de un niño de seis años, Antonio, cuyo destino se ve influido por una curandera con poderes mágicos que se llama Última. La voz de Tangelson transmite el dialecto regional único de una comunidad predominantemente hispanohablante de Nueva México en los años 40. Allá, Antonio se ve enrollado en el conflicto entre las creencias católicas de su madre y la relación que tiene Última con el poder de la naturaleza. Tangelson comunica las voces de todos los personajes de manera estupenda, especialmente los gritos de muerte y la voz interior de Antonio, llena de angustia y sentimiento para su familia. Su interpretación amenazadora del antagonista Tenorio chisporrotea e intensifica el suspenso de esta historia explosiva. L.R.P., Trans.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Rudolfo Anaya’s partly autobiographical novel about 6-year-old Antonio, whose destiny is influenced by Última, a natural healer with magic powers, is taken to a new dimension by Argentine narrator Dario Tangelson. His voice precisely transmits the spirited local dialect of a predominately Spanish-speaking 1940s New Mexico community. There Antonio becomes conflicted between his mother’s Catholic beliefs and Última’s relationship with the power of nature. Tangelson superbly conveys the voices of all the characters, especially their screeching and painful cries of death and Antonio’s inner voice, filled with anguish and affection for his family. Tangelson's crackling and menacing interpretation of the voice of Tenorio, the antagonist whose evil aim is to destroy “the witch,” further deepens this explosive tale of suspense.
