One thought on “La llamarada”

  1. Warning! Keep away from this book!Boring story, unwieldy use of vocabulary, and no redeeming qualities. I gave up after one hundred pages, and should have given up way sooner.

  2. Writing is almost poetry in its attention to detail and the descriptions of the inner impression the world makes on the protagonist.

  6. Está bien, me entretuvo, pero tuve ciertas discrepancias. El autor repite demasiado ciertas palabras, y eso cansa. La historia no me enganchó nada.
