His wife, Yvonne, comes to Quauhnahuac hoping to save him, resurrect their failed marriage and take him out of Mexico. Set during the Day of the Dead, , it will be a decisive day for Geoffrey. This novel was absolutely astonishing.

And the descriptions of the locations around Quauhnahuac in the shadow of the volcano were excellent. A tragic, flawless novel.

Pathos out the wazoo in this one. Highly recommended. Some say this novel is one of the best of the last century. Others couldn't stand it or finish it. I finished it but only to keep from calling myself a quitter.

The novel was hard to follow, The sentences ran on for a page or more which was very distracting. The descriptions of Mexico were vivid, and the most redeeming feature of the entire novel. Three sections were background of each of the main characters to explain how they got to this point in their lives and that was about the only coherent part of the book.

The last section is the culmination of all the backstories, but I not only couldn't follow what was happening, I didn't even care, I was just glad it was over.

Paperback Verified download. I first bought this book after reading a recommendation by Stephen King in his book "On Writing: Under the Volcano stands up to King's recommendation as one of the great novels of the 20th century.

The writing is "different" than modern books written in the 's I believe.

However, the writing is fantastic, well done, and the writer breaks 'the writing rules' often, but it suits his style. This is a difficult read if you only have time to read occasionally. This is something you want to read deeply for a few hours at a time, otherwise it's easy to lose your place. I highly recommend this book for readers and for serious writers to study the craft. Perhaps Malcolm Lowry could have written about a place hotter or more humid than the mythical Quernavaca Quanhnahuac.

It's of this place and Fermin's complete capitulation to lost love that that Malcolm Lowry writes about so poetically and so full of vigor, rich in imagery and metaphor that one can spend a perhaps a lifetime dicing and slicing it.

With a plot that is largely revealed in the first chapter one is left with perhaps the greatest prequel ever that focuses on the devastation and total loss that Fermin feels with his wife's departure. The purpose of continuing despite knowing what happens is the words. Start reading out loud and suddenly the novel takes on a life of his own.

If I were teaching an English class I'd have the students read a page each from Fermin's love letter at the end of chapter one. It's a blend of passion, beauty, eloquence and alliteration that is thoroughly original and unique. I will surely read that section over and over.

It's more than gorgeous, it's rhapsodic. Who would best stand on a stage and read it as part of bringing this book to life? It's fun to think about. Chapter after chapter. It is unrelenting but so beautifully told and so intense that one may pinch oneself as a reminder that is just a book. I could go on and on. Certainly it's a book that rewards the patient reader and is not one that lends itself to killing time at an airport but in the right quiet place this is one very special ride.

I consider my comments merely a placeholder for surely one must read this book repeatedly. I've read it twice now and many passages repeatedly and it still feels fresh and new. What a masterpice It is haunting, insightful, poetic and tragic -- but it takes a gentle spirit and an open heart to appreciate its mysteries.

It also helps to have had some experience in traveling throughout Mexico not staying at a resort to appreciate the sense of doom and desperation of the people and to become sensitized to the tragic sense that pervades Mexican culture and traditions. But this is not absolutely necessary. If I were teaching a class with Under the Volcano, I would include the sociological and historical events that envelop its characters, show videos of Mexican fiestas, and present some of the realities of years of colonial oppression.

Alchoholism is of course not significant in itself, except in its relation to the deliberately self-destructive trajectory of the narrator. This novel reminded me also of Lord Jim by Conrad.
