"Space Invaders is the story of a group of childhood friends who, in adulthood, are preoccupied by uneasy memories and visions of their classmate Estrella Gonzlez Jepsen. In their dreams, they catch glimpses of Estrella's braids, hear echoes of her voice, and read old letters that eventually, mysteriously, stopped arriving. They recall regimented school assemblies, nationalistic class performances, and a trip to the beach. Soon it becomes clear that Estrella's father was a ranking government officer implicated in the violent crimes of the Pinochet regime, and the question of what became of her after she left school haunts her erstwhile friends. Growing up, these friends--from her pen pal, Maldonado, to her crush, Riquelme--were old enough to sense the danger and tension that surrounded them, but were powerless in the face of it. They could control only the stories they told one another and the 'ghostly green bullets' they fired in the video game they played obsessively."--Provided by publisher.… (mere)

Brilliant, dreamlike... and way too short. ( )
  evano | Apr 24, 2021 |
This short novel is quite interesting, though I am not sure I completely understand it. Set mostly in 1980s Chile, it focuses on a few middle school pupils who deal with the trauma of growing up under Pinochet, surrounded by murder, terror, protests, and being friends with one girl whose father is in the National Guard.

This is a short novella about the collective dreams of adults remembering their childhood in Chili during Pinochet's regime. The memories center on one of their classmates named Estella who one day had to leave school and never came back.

Some memories are ordinary, some are sad, angry, and confused. Some memories are violent and terrifying. All seem to revolve around Estrella. She was a mysterious jewel in a strange world and the memories of Chili revolve around the memories of her. ( )

A novella, short by definition, but despite this I found this book to be very powerful. I'm always amazed when an author can say so much with so few words. This is not a straightforward story, and it's told in a dreamlike fashion. In fact, dreaming itself is a big part of this novella.

A group of school children, children whose school uniforms must always be worn perfectly. Who walk in lines, their hand on the shoulder of the student in front, so as to keep perfect distances from each other. Perfection and order is demanded. This is Chile under Pinochet, and these children are trying to find a way to understand what they see, but can't comprehend. They play space invaders where they capture and watch the invaders in this make believe world. Then a school girl disappears, doesn't return to school. They each remember different things, dream of her and wonder what has happened. As they grow older they understand much more and wish they didn't, because unlike the space invaders world, in the real one they are powerless.

The author does a great job with pacing in this story. The tension rises incrementally as one reads and the dreams and fears continue.

"We are the most important piece in a game, but we still don't know what game it is."

"No one is exactly sure when it happened, but we all remember that coffins and funerals and wreaths where suddenly everywhere and there was no escaping them, because it had all become something like a bad dream. Maybe it had always been that way and we were only realizing it." ( )
