Reviews - What do customers think about Rosaura a Las Diez (Spanish Edition)?
There is a movie of this novel... No kidding! Feb 18, 2007
Yes... A movie based on this novel was released in 1958. I obtained a region 1 Arte Video edition (sono-film). It is in black and white and quite faithful to the book. I purchased my VHS legally but it took some time surfing the internet and negotiating its purchase from Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was directed by Mario Soffici and stars Susana Campos, Juan Verdaguer, Maria L. Robledo, Alberto Dables, Maria C. Cesar, Hector Calgagno, Amalia Bernabe, Miguel Ligero, Julian Bourges, Beto Giannola, Mario Soffici, and Nelly Beltran. This film borders upon being an Argentinian national treasure. I would suggest trying to find and buy a legitimate non-bootleg edition. It's called respect.
This is a WARNING! Nov 17, 2006
If you are buying this book for reading in your Spanish class, this is probably NOT THE WAY TO GO. It may be a good price, but the other version is the one that contains the study questions and is abridged appropriately for learning the language.
Simply if you're buying this book for the fun if it, then yes... it would be the way to go but I spend money on this thinking it was the correct one for class and it wasn't. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK with your teacher prior to purchasing this copy!!
Great Book May 27, 2002
This book is excellent for fluent or not-so-fluent Spanish speakers. The plot is interesting and easy to understand, and there are some real surprises. I read it for a University-level Spanish class and though I did not expect much when I started it, I found myself wanting to read more than had been assigned (something that doesn't happen to me very often!)
Good book Jul 3, 2001
I read this for my spanish 4 class. It was very entertaining and a good way to practice spanish comprehension. Great plot!
The best novel I ever readed Dec 11, 1998
This short novel is simply beautiful. I received it today, and after 7 hours of continuous reading I finished it. With some happines for end it, and at the same time some sadness for finish reading the beautiful writings of Marco Denevi. It's rich in vocabulary, and with lots of Argentinismos (like the prologue says) and the history itself is almost perfect. I don't understand why there's no a movie on this book... If you want to forget the lunch and dinner and stop working for a day, buy this book.
