Amazing! I so enjoyed this short story. It has the grace of South American small cities. I miss it so!! And I have but one wish... that I can write as cleanly and beautifully as Isabel Allende when I finally grow up!

Dos palabras es un cuento maravilloso que se trata de una mujer Belisa Crepusculario... una mujer luchadora que elegio su propionate nombre y destino de ser "vendedora de palabras." Lo sugiero.
¡Excelente historia!
Es muy cautivadora e interesante.
Y, aunque al final te deja con la interrogante (¿cuáles fueron esas dos palabras), vale la pena leer esta corta historia.

I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this tale <3
I read it for the first time when I was 15 years old and it blew my mind thinking about those two words, even now everytime I read it again.

It was an overall really cute story in Spanish.
This was recommended on a list of best short stories. Good enough. Not one that will stay with me forever.

HA! I read the first part in an ACT practice test and the rest in my 11th grade lit class for the magical realism unit. It was great! One of the best magical realism stories I have ever read!
