The Green House (Original title: La Casa Verde) is the second novel by the Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa, published in 1966. The novel is set over a period of forty years (from the early part of the 20th century to the 1960s) in two regions of Peru: Piura, a dusty town near the coast in the north, and Peruvian Amazonia, specifically the jungle region near the Marañón river. The story is broken into four parts, each of which begins with an impressionistic narrative without paragraph breaks. Each part is then broken into chapters (Parts One and Three have four chapters each; Parts Two and Four, three). Each chapter is further divided into five separate narratives: 1) Bonifacia in the jungle region, 2) Fushia and Aquilino on the Marañón, 3) Anselmo in Piura, 4) various characters involved in power struggles in the jungle, and 5) Lituma and Bonifacia in Piura. The novel concludes with a four-chapter epilogue. Vargas Llosa adds to this narrative complexity by referring to characters obliquely ("the lieutenant", "the native", etc.) and by telling the story non-chronologically (parallel narratives may be decades apart). He also creates double narratives within chapters without clear demarcation. The effect is to interweave past and present and to suggest an omnipresent and continuing corruption and brutality.

The Green House, Amsterdam Reviews - Write a Review

  • For starters awesome coffee. Great staff and good atmosphere, fun to look at the wall of all the celebrities that have visited over the years. Pretty good strain selection, I noticed staff were very helpful to the newbies. Will be visiting again!

  • One of several coffeeshops in the Rembrandt plaza area where cannabis can be purchased and consumed. This establishment has everything a stoner could want including an interesting interior design. Soft drinks, coffee, teas, pastries and sandwiches are available to satisfy the munchies

  • Knowledgeable and nice staff. Had to wait 20 minutes for a drink, and then 10 minutes for a bartender to return and give me my money back, which made the whole visit pretty lame. Would recommend going, but not during peak hours.

  • Good weed selection although the quality is sub par at best and way overpriced. You can get high quality product for 4/5 euros cheaper at most coffeeshops. I find the staff friendly although when its too busy you can understand as to why they don't have the time to talk to everybody. Although being opposite Susie's means I normally visit here a few times every trip. The coffeshops is normally packed out but you can often find a seat just outside facing the canal which is a lovely place to unwind
