Reviews - What do customers think about Una Isla Como Tu: Historias del Barrio (Spanish Edition)?

A book about culture  Apr 14, 2003
Personally I did not like this book a lot. The first story , "La mala influencia" is really good and present a satirical situation of the problem that exists when purtorricans raise in the United States culturally clash with their roots. This is basicly thi message of the book: it deals with the new generation, the children of puertorrican inmigrants and the battle they must fight between choosing their parents culture or the popular culture of the time. This book is mainly focused for teenagers.
An amazing collection in either language!  Dec 6, 2000
"An Island Like You" first came to my attention as I was searching for books by Judith Ortiz Cofer. I was drawn in by the individuality of the characters, their day to day challenges and struggles, and the strength that all characters showed in the face of the unknown. I just received "Una isla como tu" last week after deciding that I wanted to read the book in the true language of the characters, and I wasn't disappointed by the translation.

The Spanish novel is every bit as compelling and graceful as its English counterpart, and great care is taken not to change any of the details. I believe that reading this novel in Spanish makes these stories of the barrio even more authentic, and this is an excellent translation that shouldn't be missed. The reading level of Spanish should be accessible to high school and university students studying Spanish.
