The first attempt of brazilian romantic writing. Very naive in some aspects which gave it a nostalgic aura. I bought it just because it was really cheap, but I have to admit I enjoyed every minute I spent reading it!

So saccharine it even tastes like sugar.

O primeiro romance literário que li.

There are lots of ridiculous things that happen in A moreninha, or The Little Dark Girl, which is considered by many to be Brazil's first major novel. Eight- and thirteen-year-old children fall into eternal love, a dying poor man makes uncanny prophesies, an Indian girl wears away a rock with her tears, and a trip to Grandma's house turns into a battle of sexes.

This year I decided to read some of these classic books which we (Brazilians) MUST read if we want to get into college. For no special reason, A Moreninha ended up being the first victim.
Oh... big luck: I only loved it!

Basically, everything is really cute, romantic, pretty and "ohh light of my world, my love, my husband! *sighs*". Loved it!
The book is much too short and the story goes by quite fast, so you don't even have enough time to get sick of that pretty catchy lovy thing :)
Besides, there...more

Bobinho em um nível Sessão da Tarde, mas muito cativante.

Eu sempre olhei para romances leves com uma certa condescendência. Pudera. Eu li Primo Basílio aos 9 anos, muito mais cedo do que deveria, e a partir daí nunca soube prestar o devido respeito a obras como A Moreninha, Amor de Perdição ou Romeu e Julieta.

Mas ei, a culpa não é minha. A culpa é do Eça.

É um romance romântico.... O nome já diz tudo. Uma excelente novela, mas não faz muito o meu estilo de livro... Vale a pena por ser o primeiro livro do romantismo brasileiro e por refletir o que a população brasileira esperava de um romance na época, mas é muito água com açúcar =)

Extremely romantic!!! Perfect for the young version of me who read this book almost 30 years ago.
