Looking for Spanish Novels? I know how tough it is to start learning a new language.
You don't usually have a large vocabulary or any knowledge of grammar.
You'd like to go right to the fun stuff, but maybe it's too hard for you now.
A typical beginner's Spanish reader isn't interesting or just plain boring.
But this book is not like that.

This book, particularly in the ebook version is extremely easy to read. Each little chapter is about 10 sentences. The story uses fairly common language that is useful, plus or minus a few detective specific phrases. Great for people who are trying to follow a path of learning for a second language similar to learning their first language.

Picked up this book for almost free on Amazon. It's a good approach for Spanish-speaking-wannabes such as myself. Read a story using simple Spanish sentences. My Kindle has a Spanish-English dictionary to help translate words. (Turns out that reading this book was the most extensive use of it.)

The story itself consists of 80 chapters. Each chapter consists of about 6 Spanish sentences that describe how Miguel, our protagonist, solves the murder of Eva. In the course of the story, we learn about

Long book title -- "Spanish Novels: Muerte en Buenos Aires (Spanish Novels for Beginners - A1)" -- for a cute short book. The book has 80 bite-sized "chapters" in Spanish, where each "chapter" contains only 5-6 sentences -- perfect for beginners in reading Spanish (like me). There is no English translation, but an easy download of a free Spanish-English dictionary lets you highlight any word and get the definition, as long as you have an eBook version. I did a LOT of highlight-lookup operations, ...more

Interesting little "Easy Spanish" book I found while on Amazon.

80 chapters. But each chapter is only 1 page. But each page is only 6 short sentences.

Because of the lack of flow due to the short chapters and what appears to be an uncontrolled vocabulary, I had a harder time following the story line than I have had in much longer books.

Good, But Could Have Been Better

The story was good and timely, and it was hard to read. However, it could have used a glossary for the words that a beginner might not know. Also, the use of the vos forms could confuse a beginner.

For someone learning to read Spanish this was great to read without having to look every second word up. Simple in language but also unfortunately in plot. But it does what it is intended to do. First ever end to end book I've read in Spanish :)

Fun read for novice Spanish language students.

Love to have read a full novel length story though. There some "Spanlish" unexpected like "living" instead of "la sala" to describe the living room.

Great for beginners. Easy, fast read. It's like reading a children's book with more substance and adult content.

Nice easy light reading but not remotely for beginning Spanish readers.

Be sure to have translator on hand to read this. No new Spanish reader will have the vocabulary needed to understand most of the conjugations and nouns used. But for intermediates its a good read.

The story is obviously not riveting nor should it be. It a story for picking up simple Spanish and it works. The story flows naturally enough and the sentences are short and comprehensible. If youre just trying to improve your Spanish this is the short novel for you.

I loved this book. I am just relearning Spanish, and this book was exactly at my level. I could understand the entire book, and I thought the story was really interesting. I'll be reading all the books by this author.

The first book I've ever read in Spanish. :) It definitely did help me improve my Spanish though. As far as the actual writing went, it was okay.

This is a good way to practice Spanish, but it is not for absolute beginners.
