Reseña: “La luz inesperada” de Marco García Falcón

Peisa, 2018. 116 pp. S/.35

El año pasado García Falcón recibió el Premio Nacional de la Literatura por la –según dicen– excelente Esta casa vacía, publicada en el 2017. Por los mismos meses salió la novela que hoy nos ocupa, La luz inesperada. Considerando el premio que ganó García Falcón,  tenía pinta de prometer. No obstante, ese no es el criterio con el cual acercarse a este pequeño libro, de propuesta algo más light que la citada Esta casa vacía.

La luz inesperada narra la historia de Bruno, un publicista de éxito que, tras varios años separado de su promoción del colegio, decide correr con los gastos de una reunión en Cancún, el mítico lugar de su viaje de promo. El reencuentro parece discurrir según lo esperado, hasta que la llegada tardía de dos viejos amigos traerá a flote recuerdos dolorosos.

Como se ve, es una historia sencilla, capaz de resumirse en pocas líneas y sin interés en irse por las ramas muy a menudo. La primera mitad del libro, para justificar su extensión, lidia con la interacción entre Bruno y un antiguo crush del colegio con quien en su momento nunca llegó a ocurrir nada. Sin embargo, esta subtrama pronto es abandonada por el hilo central de la historia, que es la confrontación entre Bruno y los amigos tardíos y los efectos de la misma. Por lo mismo, la diferencia de tonos entre ambas partes resulta brusca y llega a sentirse que se están leyendo dos libros distintos, que ninguno de los dos es especialmente bueno y que además ninguno está protagonizado por el mismo personaje.

Esto último es importante porque desde las primeras páginas nos encontramos acompañando a Bruno en todo. Ingresamos a su vida profesional y personal actual y mientras las páginas van avanzando nos introducimos también en su pasado más íntimo, a nivel familiar y amical, comprendemos sus frustraciones y cómo estas le sirven de motivación en el presente. Todo está narrado desde su punto de vista, lo que incluye que hay que soportar constantemente digresiones para encajar sus opiniones en los temas más arbitrarios, pontificaciones innecesarias que oscilan entre consideraciones superficiales sobre el trabajo de un publicista y los méritos artísticos del reggaetón.

Sin embargo, todo esto cambia para convertir el libro en una sucesión de actos violentos y confusos hacia el final, con un protagonista marcado por un dolor que apenas se sugería en las previas páginas y que termina resultando gratuito en sus actos, más por el deseo de establecer un giro para un relato que, de otro modo, habría resultado muy plano. La sensación final termina siendo que las primeras 80 o 90 páginas son en gran parte relleno y además relleno engañoso, pues nos encontramos con un Bruno muy distinto del que esas páginas habían ido construyendo. La única conexión entre ambos Brunos termina siendo el último fragmento, una suerte de epifanía completamente incongruente con todo lo que el libro ha intentado construir, pero que recupera esa actitud inicial más serena y por momentos contemplativa (siempre dispuesta a pontificar).

Realmente no hay mucho más que decir sobre esta novela. Su tono ligero y la trama fallida únicamente contribuyen en crear una experiencia olvidable. Hasta ahora no he leído Esta casa vacía, por lo que la impresión inicial que me llevo de la obra de García Falcón es bastante mala. Habrá que revisarla para ver si no será esta novela únicamente un tropiezo en una trayectoria más interesante.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
