The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez – Audiobook Online

“The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez” is a novel narrated by Johnny Rey Diaz. The book follows the story of Fulgencio Ramirez, a small-town Mexican folk hero who was believed to have been killed over fifty years ago. However, one day, he returns from the dead and begins performing miracles, causing chaos and confusion in the town. As his followers become more and more devoted to Fulgencio, those in power begin to view him as a threat. The book explores themes of faith, identity, and power. Through the character of Fulgencio, the book challenges readers to question their beliefs and the role of religion in society. The novel ultimately ends with a surprising twist that brings the story full circle.

In the 1950s, tensions remained high in the border town of La Frontera. Wedges and sneakers tend to clash with boots and boots. Bowling shirts and leather jackets compete with guayaberas. Convertible cars versus motorbikes. Amidst the discord, however, childhood love blossoms at first sight between Fulgencio Ramirez, the son of impoverished immigrants, and Carolina Mendelssohn, the daughter of a local pharmacist. But as they soon find out, their bond will be broken by a force stronger than they could have known.

Thirty years after their first fateful meeting, Fulgencio Ramirez, RPh, is conducting the daily ritual of reading the local obituary in his cramped pharmacy office. After nearly a quarter of a century of waiting, Fulgencio received the news he had been waiting for: his enemy, Carolina Mendelssohn’s husband, had died.

A work of magical realism, The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez combines past and present as Fulgencio tries to succeed in America, break a mystical family curse and win back Carolina’s love after their doomed youth romance. Through mesmerizing language and reflections on the porous nature of borders – cultural, geographical and afterlife – The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez offers a vision of how the past has divided us and how the future can unite us.

The border between this side and el otro lado is a porous membrane that Ruiz’s characters cross freely. Love this story for its transcoding language, for example: Maldonado’s Cafe, San Juan de Atole and Canaya’s Field; its reality-based sense of racism in the 50s; Magical feeling based on character flexibility and story of lasting love. I will read this book over and over again. PS I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley.

I absolutely loved this from start to finish. Very good article, interesting and since I have no knowledge of the field in which it is set, I also found it quite informative.
