Reviews - What do customers think about LA BODEGA (Roca Editorial Historica)?

Entretenido, una historia muy bien lograda  Feb 15, 2008
Es un libro muy agradable,para mi fue una sorpresa, es el segundo libro que leo de Noah Gordon y en verdad es tan bueno como El ultimo judio, por supuesto con una tematica totalmente diferente.
Esta ubicado en una etapa interesante de la historia de Espana. Una Espana convulsionada politicamente; finales del siglo XIX.
La descripcion del pueblo, los personajes son maravillosos, estan muy bien logrados. La historia esta muy bien lograda, es entretenido y ademas tiene algo de novela historica sin ser una novela historica,aunque ademas del tema politico el tema central el inicio de la producion vinicola en el norte de Espana
No deje de leerlo, pasara un buen rato, yo lo lei en una noche
 
La Bodega: A good story on winemaking in Spain.  Jan 8, 2008
La Bodega is really a good read. Spain has had for a long time a bad name for mass producing cheap wines, but this trend changed some 20 years ago, and now it markets some really great wines. Making good wine is a long process, which started in Spain around the end of the 19th century. The novel is located in the region of Catalumya around the time of the filoxera epidemy, and also briefly refers to the carlists wars. However this is not a history book, the references are there to develop the plot not as focal point.
