Ramón Fortuna, con apenas 15 años de edad, ve cómo un golpe inexplicable y salvaje del azar cambia su vida y amenaza con destruirla.

Wow, wow, wow.

Tengo muchas cosas buenas que decir sobre este libro.

La lectura es tremendamente fácil. La forma de narrar es apta para cualquier tipo de público, y no se hace pesado. No tiene partes excesivamente largas y tediosas, sino que es todo muy dinámico, lo que le da agradables puntos positivos.

La recreación de esa forma de hablar de los personajes, con esas muletillas del "jodé", el "es que", todo el rato, son cosas que te hacen meterte más en la vida de los personajes, de sentir mejor q

"El Otro Barrio" was really great work by Elvira Lindo. As her first adult book, I think she did really well.

I really enjoyed how characters were presented and what their personalities were. I have not read many books in Spanish, most in English really, but now I realize there are so many books out there that I have a chance to read now and I will definitely take that opport ...more

Opino que este libro fue horrible. Fue muy aburrido y lento en muchas partes. ¡Lo no recomiendo! ¡¡¡Ahorre su tiempo y leer un otro libro!!!
