Reviews - What do customers think about Vientos De Cuaresma / Winds of Lent (Coleccion Andanzas, 434)?

Must read  Feb 6, 2005
Uno de los generos mas dificiles son las novelas policiacas. Padura trabaja muy bien el personaje principal Mario Conde y a la misma vez retrata como es la vida en la habana.

Esta novela es parte de la tetralogia cuatro estaciones, Padura desarrolla los personajes Mario Code y su mejor amigo que quedo invalido durante la guerra de Angola a traves de esta 4 novelas culminando en un final sorprendente como toda novela policiaca debe terminar.

Tambien recomiendo "La novela de mi vida" sobre Jose Maria Heredia - SU MEJOR NOVELA.
