Despite the cheesy title that made me a bit embarrassed to walk around with this book (I don't have a lot of time to read, so I usually carry books in my bag to read wherever I can), I enjoyed this book, although not as much as two others I had read before by the same author. The story, about family life and its relations, is in line with those other Trollope's book I've read before, but I didn't like the somewhat stereotyped views of Spain and the Spanish that turn the narrative into a bit of a caricature and make it less authentic.

Susana já li em português, não gostei tanto como dos "Melhores Amigos" ou mesmo dos "Parentes Próximos", mas lê-se bem.


Pequete Despite the cheesy title that makes me a bit embarrassed to walk around with this book (I don't have a lot of time to read, so I usually carry books in my bag to read wherever I can), I'm enjoying this book. The story, about family life and its relations, is in line with other Trollope's book I've read before. I think the only reason I'm not liking this one as much as previous ones, is the fact that it contains some stereotyped views of Spain and the Spanish. Anyway, I'm just more or less halfway through the book, so let's see what happens.
