How this book has influenced my life. Aug 14, 2006
In Volar Sobre el Pantano by Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sanchez the basic plot is that the husband receives and urgent letter of help from his sister in a hospital from which they no nothing of and he and his wife are trying to reach her and see what is going on. During this journey they are telling themselves the problems they have had in there lives. The main characters in this story are the husband (Zahib), wife (Lisbeth), and Zahib's sister (Alma). The events in the story were that Zahib and his wife Lisbeth go to the airport and during the flight they talk about the problems they had in life and then they finally reach the destination of the flight and hurry to the hospital to see what hospital it is and if Alma (Zahib's sister) is still there. After learning she is not there they go to her apartment and they find her. She refuses help from anyone, but after Lisbeth talks to her she agrees to ask for help. Then the story ends. This Story takes place in Zahib's house, the airplane, the hospital, the hotel and the apartment. This book is mostly was written in a first person format with a lot of dialogue. Most of the paragraphs are at least 10 sentences long and the chapters are normally 7 pages long. This book did not take me long to read because it is so inspiring and exciting that it makes you want to read more and more until you finally finish it.
This book is influential, because it teaches you that your word values a lot and that people have lots of problems in life but we must learn to not take revenge on those that brought that pain, but to try to help ourselves and the other people involved in the situation. I use to think that my word did not value a lot, because no one took my words seriously. Now after reading this book I understand that if I don't stand up to those who don't take my words seriously and tell them that I believe that I have a right to be heard then I will not be able to stand up for what I believe in. This book also taught me that everyone has problems and if they act in a way that is hurtful or that is nice they will receive consequences because everything has a consequence it is not necessarily a good one or a bad one. These consequences can come at any time they could come soon or they could take years to come but they will come and when they come you will either be awarded or be held responsible for your actions.

Este libro es una excellente guia para aquellas personas que se encuentran desesperados, en lo personal creo que Carlos C. ha realizado un increible trabajo, lo he leido ya dos veces y cada vez me impresiona mas el profundo mensaje moral, y etico que nos trasmite. Todas sus obras son muy buenas y las seguire disfrutando mientras el autor tenga nuevos temas.
