Today was released in Mexico 22 Escarabajos : Antologia Hispanica del Cuento Beatle. (Escarabajo is Beetle). It's a collection of short stories inspired by the Beatles. The cover of the book is this one. (Very lovely I must say)

 

 

It looks interesting. I read in Revolution Peru's forum what the stories are about.

Abbey Road : Where Phil Spector should have been hit by a car before producing Let it Be.

Fan : A reasonable person until he meets the Beatles.

X : Pete Best's opinion about his former bandmates.

JesusChrist : A star that dared to say he was almost as famous as the Beatles.

 

And so on. As soon as I get the book I'll let you know my impression of it. (BTW you can get it in Amazon)

 

Edit : This is the book's official blog. It's in Spanish though. You can see some videos of people trying to sing the Beatles. You can see the language is not a barrier to love them :) :) :)

Joe..

 

I have to share this. I read a short story from this book called Revolver Smile. It's about a guy who was proud of being born in 1966 because it was the same year Revolver was released. But the guy was born on February 18th, and he said he wanted to know if los Beatles had done anything that day.

 

Ok the guy says he researched on Internet and in a library, and in a line he says "It's incredible the amount of material out there, you can follow the life of the Beatles day by day" and in that moment I said "Beatles Bible!!" and I started LAUGHING so hard that the people on the bus in front of my seat looked back and I had to cover my face with the book.

 

The story is fantastic, the guy is quite disappointed because the Beatles did nothing related with Revolver that day, he even wonders if Paul thought of "Here, There And Everywhere". The problem is that he discovers that Beach Boys' Good Vibrations started to be recorded that day. So the guy blames his terrible bad luck (he ends up in jail, it seems he was part of a guerrilla group) to the fact that The Beach Boys never fullfillled the promise of Smile.

 

And what did I do after reading the story? I just checked that day. Poor guy, he was right. Nothing happened on that day.

 

BTW I haven't finished reading the book because the first 2 stories let me down a bit, they were not as good as I expected, (something that Mark Chapman was actually a Christian terrorist, very weird) but yesterday I took it again and the next 2 stories were truly good. My favorite line is a guy describing why he doesn't like modern music and he says "What's the point of listening to Oasis when you can hear the real thing?".
