Reviews - What do customers think about Mi Planta De Naranja Lima/ My Orange Lemon Plant?

The Best Book Ever!!!!!  Nov 29, 2005
I read this book when I was 13 in Spanish. I have read it many times since, and everytime I gain something new. It is certainly one of the books that will remain in my heart forever. You can't help but fall in love with Zeze. When you least know it, he is under your skin. Beware, you will shed a few tears for the reality of the poor children in Brasil. This book should be read by all the kids in the first world. It is an eye opener for those who see poverty as just another part of the scenery of the world. Too bad there has not been additional editions in English. I now find myself buying used copies to share it with my anglophone friends. This book is the cutest and most tender literary work I have ever encountered. It goes fast and easy, and although it may sound as a children's book, I would recommend it to anyone 13 and up.
"Historia de un niño que un día descubrió el dolor..."  May 15, 2003
Así comienza uno de los libros más sensacionales de la literatura brasileña escrito a manos de José Mauro de Vasconcelos. El autor, nacido en Río de Janeiro, relata con extraordinaria fuerza narrativa y sensibilidad la historia de un niño que descubre el dolor y se hace adulto precozmente.

Si Salinger consiguió retratar la mentalidad de un adolescente estadounidense, Vasconcelos consigue con admirable empatía sobrecoger al lector con la dulce narración en primera persona de Zezé, el peculiar protagonista de cinco años que vive en los suburbios de Río. Uno llega a tenerles tanto cariño a los personajes que pasan por la trama que es inevitable que no se derramen algunas lágrimas con más de una de las difíciles experiencias que acontecen esta obra, plagada de ternura y desabrimiento a la par. Es el trágico relato de un pequeño gran filósofo que inventa para sí mismo un mundo propio de fantasía en el que su gran confidente es su planta de naranja-lima. Un niño que aprende todo solo y descubre la ternura con personajes como "el portuga", así como el dolor y el anhelo que nos hacen endurecer hasta convertirnos en adultos.
