It was soo nice, I cried so much. Definitely a book I'll keep forever and make everyone read, it was so cute and I totally loved it! It goes about this kid who lost his parents and he has to stay with his uncle who is very peculiar for what he had seen so far. The thing is, once they live together they get into such adventure... it's from the best books in spanish I've ever ever read. Everyone should read it. By the way, i think the ending was perfect, it shouldn't have gone any other way in my ...more

What's not to love about this book? The narrative is held by Sebastian, 12, who has absolutely no idea about life. The story evolves at the same time he does, it's clear how we grows up and starts to be worried about different aspects of life. From heartbreaks to random (and I mean RANDOM) dreams; from epic musical references to mesmerizing narratives about his life.. it's easy to eat this book in matter of days. Plus, throughout the story, Sebastian refers back to a lot of classic and not-so-cl ...more

This book is a gift. I mean, it was a Christmas gift from a very good friend of mine but I also mean that it is a gift to read this book.

Let's talk basics, the writing is superb, the characters are interesting and well developed, the plot is simple: a boy loses his parents and his uncle goes to live with him to raise him. The story takes place throughout Sebastian's life with Paco, his uncle.

Now let's talk magic. This book takes you into the mind of a boy who discovers the world through books

“El libro es jardín que se puede llevar en el bolsillo, nave espacial que viaja en la mochila, arma para enfrentar las mejores batallas y afrentar a los peores enemigos, semilla de libertad, pañuelo para las lágrimas. El libro es cama mullida y cama de clavos, el libro te obliga a pensar, a sonreír, a llorar, a enojarte ante lo injusto y aplaudir la venganza de los justos. El libro es comida, techo, asiento, ropa que me arropa, boca que besa mi boca. Lugar que contiene el universo.” 290 likes
