Title: The passenger of the San Carlos
Original title: La pasajera del San Carlos
Author: Arturo Pérez-Reverte
It all begins on a boat that sails to a coastal town. On it goes to a young couple. The woman, who is very attractive, is raising passions where it goes. But the couple not shown as such; She seems to go at your pace, while it is only dedicated to playing cards and drinking.
This custom does not seem to change when they reach the village in which they are installed, even there it seems the relationship deepens. It lies with all citizens who can unless the husband finds out. But the rumors start to grow and the husband begins to suspect.
What do the young husband when you know what you are really doing your woman?
It all begins on a boat that sails to a coastal town. On it goes to a young couple. The woman, who is very attractive, is raising passions where it goes. But the couple not shown as such; She seems to go to their is a story quite short, it does not take much to read it, but, despite its brevity, the impact causing is very high. Everything seems normal from a beginning, or than normal which can seem a newly married young couple going to live in a village and at the crossing on the boat are not directed nor a single word. Here, Perez-Reverte plays with intrigue and an everyday act as it may be that someone put the horns and you or you find. Everything seems normal, even the outcome among young people, when the husband learns what his wife does, but no one expected the real end.
The story tells the captain, by what the details are somewhat scarce, but that does not prevent the reader to imagine is what is what is happening in the village around the couple. And it is not anything else but that she is lying down with all, or almost all, men of the people no matter who they are unmarried, young, or older does not make distinctions. What is more surprising is that it does without the knowledge of her husband who seems not to realize what is happening and is passed evenings playing cards and drinking while Tavern that his wife, in his absence, is with another man. Rumors grow at high speed until they arrive at the tavern where the husband who, despite what you hear, do not seem to mind.
But the most shocking, as well as funny, is the end of the story that I think that I will not reveal to keep you in suspense and you read it to know what happens at the end. Will only say that nothing is expected one of that final, to me caused me very much and I was so naive as inhabitants of the village.
Greetings little people!
