¿Dónde se encuentra el Paraíso?¿ En la construcción de una sociedad igualitaria o en la vuelta al mundo primitivo?
Dos vidas: la de Flora Tristán, que pone todos sus esfuerzos en la lucha por los derechos de la mujer y de los obreros, y la de Paul Gauguin, el hombre que descubre su pasión por la pintura y abandona su existencia burguesa para viajar a Tahití en busca de un mundo no contaminado por las convenciones. Dos concepciones del sexo: la de Flora, que sólo ve en él un instrumento de dominio masculino, y la de Gauguin, que lo considera una fuerza vital impresindible puesta al servicio de su creatividad.

Gauguin's story, as well as the story of his grandmother and mother. ( )

Flora Tristán and Paul Gaugin's stories. Chapters are interwoven. Skip Gaugin's story, enjoy Flora's. Similar chapter weaving in A S Byatt's "Possession". I wished I wasted no time on the historic poem chapters and read the contemporary story only.

The Way to Paradise is about the artist, Paul Gauguin, and his grandmother, Flora Tristan, an activist for workers’ and women’s rights. The chapters alternate between Flora’s life in France and Peru in the mid 19th Century and Gauguin’s life in France and Polynesia in the late 19th Century. The parallels between their lives are striking, even though they never met. Both live outside mainstream society, work for social change, abandon their families to follow their dreams, and are persecuted by local governments for being subversive.

This book started out really well, and I couldn’t put it down. The similarities between Flora and Paul’s lives really made the book interesting, and the fact that this was a fictionalized account of two real people made it even more intriguing. However, sometime in the second half I started to lose interest in it. It could just be me, but I think this happened because of the way the novel was structured. Llosa starts the characters’ story in the middle of their lives and both works forward and jumps backward during the chapters. The jumps between time periods were so sudden, though, that it got annoying after a while. He also would reveal major bits and pieces in one sentence, ignore them for the rest of the chapter, then come back and fully explain them two chapters later. This was somewhat confusing, and I kept flipping back to see if I had missed something until I realized what he was doing. I have no problem with an author who makes readers work to understand a book, but it was just too distracting to keep up with all the jumping around in The Way to Paradise.

On the plus side, Llosa showed me a side of society that I didn’t really know much about. It was really interesting learning about Flora and Paul’s lives and the societies they lived in, from the “uncivilized” jungles of Tahiti and Peru to the manufacturing centers of France. This book did make me think, which is always a good thing.

Overall, this book had a lot of potential, but Llosa just didn’t follow through with it enough for me. It wasn’t a bad read, it just wasn’t great. If I come across another of his books somewhere, I might pick it up, but I won’t go out of my way to find more of his work.
