XIXth century Puerto Rican literature seems to have made it a law to depress it's readers. Along with the representation of tragic and pathetic characters and situations, La Charca is a mirror of the Puerto Rican society of 1894. It also stands as a reflection of the current situation of the island more than a 100 years after it's publication. This speaks greatly of talent and insights of Zeno Gandía, but not so much of the progress of the island itself.

Todo aquel que se crio en Puerto Rico tiene esta libro en su corazon especialmente si provienen de las zonas rurales. Es una magnifica exposicion de la interaccion social en esa epoca.

Excelente clasico!!! Aun que muy descriptivo para mi gusto
Classic of puertorican literature. A little boring for me, I must admit but of such great importance. Rural puerto Rico is displayed here as it was. There aren't that many great history books of puerto Rico but the novels provide great insight and this is one of those exemplary novels.

Recommends it for: Lovers of Puertorrican literature only
I was very depressed with this book. While it does have it's good points, I'm personally hoping never to read it again.
Está bien fea la historia. No me gustó. El libro presenta muchas situaciones que no me gustaría ver jamás. >.<
