  1. This book is a biography of Manuel Benitez, a famous matador from spain who was born in poverty and dreamt of being a bullfighter all his life taking many twists and turns including jail sentences finally achieved success and magnificiently so, due to daring exploits in the ring The narration is good and the pair have done it again after their much popular freedom at midnight on the Indian independence If you look at some of the bullfights on youtube videos, you will be appalled to note that thi [...]


  2. Lapierre Collins amorce leur r cit en proposant en alternance un chapitre sur la guerre civile espagnol, un chapitre sur la tauromachie et le futur Dieu, El Cordob s Le contexte politique et social est bien camp Les origines et la symbolique de la corrida agr ablement bien d mystifi s On se dirige vers un autre grand livre du c l bre duo d auteurs, sauf qu mi parcours on se concentre essentiellement sur le tor ador oubliant pratiquement le contexte de l re franquiste On passe du pr sent au pass [...]


  3. This is one of my all time favorite books I read it first 20 years ago and I love it so much that I saved enough money to buy a first edition signed by the authors.It s a fabulous biography a category I really enjoy Surprisingly, as I am definitely not a fan of the bull fight, I was captured by the life story and the courage of Manuel Benitiz The fame enjoyed by a Mickey Mantle in the states was what El Cordobes would eventually enjoy in 1960s Spain To get to that point Benitiz lived through abj [...]


  4. Recently there was news that matadors were severely gored by the bulls that they were fighting Why does bullfighting continues to be a sport of entertainment I think it s an example of the savage nature of the mankind Why else would thousands of people gather around revel in such a dangerous act What did those poor animals do to deserve such provocation and merciless killing The back story of Spanish history presented in this book was as interesting as the story of El Cordobes Spain of that peri [...]

  6. It is both a biographical epic and a portrait of a country between the Civil War and the fall of the regime Very well writen.


  7. I had read this book 10 times.On every reading i see some new things about this book.As his many books Dominique Lapierre has done wonders.No words in my dictionary and no superlatives that are known me can describe what you feelDominique Lapierre has done wonders with english.My only concern is that i have read the book quite late in my life Story telling at its best as some body saidPaulo Coelho in an interview about this book Q Tell us about your literary inspirations A Recently I read a very [...]


  8. Written with a pace and grip of a modern film script, an expertly interweaved plot jumping from the trials and fortunes of El Cordobles life I had no interest in the Fiesta Brava prior to picking up this book, in fact I continue to be completely opposed to this inhumane sport However, the book did instil in me an understanding of its connections to Spanish culture and despite my protestations in my minds eye I was transported to that hot bench under the brutal Spanish sun and yes I did shout ol. [...]


  9. I think this may be out of print, so you ll have to get a used copy I am, unashamedly, an aficionado of Los Toros I can bore on the subject for hours But this is not a textbook, it s the biography of a chicken thief who became as famous in his chosen art as were the Beatles in theirs He changed the corrida forever, through his artistic genius, his bravery, and his chutzpah On that level alone it s worth reading, and if you too become a bullfight addictwell, tough luck.Sadly, he lived too long, a [...]


  10. I read the same book, but titled Or I ll Dress You in Mourning The Extraordinary Life of El Cordobes I m not sure when the title switch occurred Collins Lapierre co wrote this book extremely well I liked how they were able to paint the picture of the life of not only Manolo Benitez, but also the other people the life of the poor in Spain in the late 1930 s through 1965 the dramatic changes which occurred thereafter This book flows well taking you to one specific bullfight in Madrid back to Manue [...]


  11. I read this book a long time ago and remembered enjoying it greatly so I decided to read it again And I enjoyed it again The stuff about the bullfighting, specifically how the bulls are treated, is hard to read, but the historical perspective about the Spanish Civil War was fascinating, and how much Manuel Benitez overcame was inspiring, too I wish there was another book about his sister and about what Benitez did in the following years If you like history and Spain, it s worth the read.


  12. I read this probably 40 years ago, and liked it a lot, so I thought I would re read it as we prepare to move to Spain It includes a lot of history of the Spanish Civil War as El Cordobes grew up in that period and gives you a good feeling for the impact on the Spanish people of that struggle It is also the portrait of a man who had a dream, and didn t give up until he achieved it Although I m not a fan of bullfighting per se, you have to admire his courage and persistence Still a fascinating rea [...]


  13. The historical background of the Spanish Civil War and the years just after sets the background and explains the motivation of El Cordobes to continue in his quest to become a famous bullfighter He achieved that, but he also reignited the passion of the Spanish people with his flamboyance, youth and good looks and his daring moves in the corrida I would recommend this book to anyone who has any interest in Spain its culture and its history.


  14. This two man writing job proves that two heads are better than one pardon the cliche, but these writers, one French, the other American, kept it going in this thrilling biography complete with all the elements death, drama, romance and on and on It s hard to find, but one to definitely look for in those used book stores.Regardless of your standing on bullfighting, it s a great book.


  15. La historia de Manuel Ben tez El Cordob s , una de las leyendas del toreo espa ol, sirve de hilo conductor para retratar la historia de Espa a entre los a os treinta con la Rep blica y la Guerra Civil y los sesenta, con el milagro econ mico y el turismo Ep logo actualiza la historia posterior del matador.


  16. I read Or I ll Dress You in Mourning when it was first published because I m an El Cordobes fan I read it over and over until the book fell apart I just recently bought it again for my e reader and am enjoying just as much now as I did prevously.Whether you like bullfighting or not, the story of El Cordobes and the history of Spain is great reading.


  17. this is an amazing true story of courage perserverance not to mention poverty the first third of the book is mainly Spanish history the Civil War etc but wow, it gets riveting after you get thru all that.


  18. Probably my favorite non fiction read About a poor boy growing up in Spain that wants to become a bullfighter during the rule of Generalisimo Franco Spoiler alert.he reaches his goal and becomes one of Spains most decorated bullfighters.


  19. This is a difficult book to read in that there is a lot of hardship and it leaves you wondering how many times can a person get back up after being knocked down so many times in so many ways A very inspiring story of someone who never gave up.


  20. A portrait of a man, an age, and a place This book is a beautiful recounting of fearless struggle and triumph It s been years since I ve cracked it open, due mainly to serially loaning it out, but I hope to reacquaint myself with it soon.


  21. Little by little this story sucks you in While I m not a fan of any kind of cruelty to animals and over the years since I read this book I have become active in the Anit bullfight movement that is sweeping Mexico, I don t deny that I couldn t put this book down.


  22. The first half of this book was really fast moving the second half was really cumbersome the ending was wrapped up too abruptly in a they all lived happily ever after kinda wayI learned a lot about bullfighting, however


  23. I devoured this book In my all time top 5 books For any Spain lover or bullfighting lover, it s simply divine


  24. As interesting for its portrayal of 1930s 60s Spanish society, as for the biography of the individual bullfighter.


  25. An incredible true story set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War You don t need to like bullfighting to appreciate this story.



  26. Fascinating insight into the life of Spain s most favourite bull fighter, and one I watched in Barcelona in the 1960 s


  27. Long but very rewarding I now under the emotional links the Spanish have to this art form The links to the Spanish Civil war are also insightful.


  28. no matter how you feel about bull fighting, you will find this book wonderful to read I did It gave me a new outlook on bull fighting
