Vargas Llosa criticizes the way of life and military culture where certain values are enhanced aggressiveness, courage, manhood, sexuality, etc. Mutilate the personal development of boys of the boarding school. With a profusion of characters, the lives of these will crisscrossing, to weave the tapestry of the work. The crux of the story is focused around the theft of exam questions, which is betrayed by a cadet nicknamed the Slave, who later died, presumably by another cadet called El Jaguar.

He may well have gone so far as to murder a classmate whom he suspects of snitching. How much do we, or anyone else, know him after all? We never even discover his real name. In part, Vargas Llosa is playing with the basic illusion that we can know any character in literature, or even that there are characters to be known. All we have are textual effects. Likewise, the point is less that we should try to reconcile the apparent divergences between the Jaguar as he is portrayed by others in the Academy, and the character as he is made to reveal himself through first-person narration. The notion of character as a consistent set of attributes and dispositions that endures over time and space is itself a literary fiction, a narrative device.
