Reviews - What do customers think about Sicario (Hard Rain)?
It's in Spanish! The original in English is excellent. Mar 7, 2008
I like the English version of the book. No one told me this one was in Spanish. If you are a Spanish reader, you'd enjoy John Rain's adventure. Very insightful about real Japan, too. Almost all the places in the book actually exists in Japan -- so you can go check it out when you go visit. Rating I gave it 3 because -- it's in Spanish and I could not read in Spanish.
Spanish Mar 21, 2007
To the folks that don't know this is a translation into spanish: READ!
And the title "Scario": is that English, I think not. Pay attention!
They let these people vote? Unreal. . .
As far as the book is concerned, it's just another in a line-up of gimpy suspense/mystery who-done-it from a pop writer who would be better suited to writing for Law and Order SVU or another one of those cookie-cutter TV police dramas.
Not worth the money in Spanish or English, but I gave it 5 stars just to even out the two idiots who gave it 1 star based on it's translated LANGUAGE.
No hable espanol Jan 21, 2007
Love the John Rain series. This particular book is in spanish. Did I mention that I don't speak or read spanish?
I Wish I Could Have Read It Nov 2, 2006
If there was any mention in your description of this book of the fact that it is printed in the Spanish language, I failed to note it. Since I am unable to read Spanish, I returned the book for a refund.
