Reviews - What do customers think about Mira Si Yo Te Querre (Premio Alfaguara 2007) (Spanish Edition)?
INTERESANTE May 9, 2008
Es un novela academicamente bien escrita, con una historia llena de situaciones que se desarrollan en lugares remotos y diferentes. Pero me resulto confuso por los cambios muy bruscos de escenas, personajes, tiempos y lugares ¡hay que estar muy despierto, atento y concentrado en la lectura para no perderse!
Aun siendo un buen libro, no puedo comprender por que obtuvo un premio tan valioso.
Excelente libro con un final muy rapido Apr 6, 2008
Un libro con una lectura que te deleita te transfiere a otro lugar. El escritor tiene una habilidad increible de desarrollar la historia, lo que me desiluciono fue el final tan abrupto.

great novel, from the first page to the last one,amazing how the story is wrote it...
Couldn't put it down Feb 18, 2008
I opened this book out of curiosity, intending to just read the first paragraph, but once I started I couldn't put it down. I read the whole book in one weekend. I'm not a native Spanish speaker, but this book was easy for me to read. The author paints vivid pictures of the Saharan desert and of all the characters of the novel without resorting to obscure, flowery words that you wouldn't hear in everyday speech. And the story is amazing. It moves easily between the past and the present, between Barcelona and the Sahara - every time offering you another piece of the story so that the farther along you go, the more clearly you understand what has happened and is happening. The morning after I finished this novel, I woke up still thinking about it.
Love is forever or lost in the Sahara Nov 1, 2007
This novel received the Alfagura Literary Award last March. I had my reserves about a romance that include a Spaniard and a Saharaui woman in the middle of the Polisario war against Spain. The romance include a threesome love affair. The Barcelona doctor that got pregnant by the soldier who went to fight the Polisario and felt for an arab girl and the girl who -au contraire to my ideas- also felt for the European. So it is intrigue, well elaborated, moving ravishly between present, past and future to give a lovely story that Passion and Commitment can survive even the desert hot sands and the wars....
