Reviews - What do customers think about El terremoto de San Salvador: Narracion de un superviviente (Villegas Cronica)?

Engolada pero interesante  May 27, 2007
Interesante y curiosa crónica novelada del terremoto que en 1917 asoló la ciudad de San Salvador.
La retórica modernista y la vanalidad del argumento serían insufribles si no fuera por el ritmo de la narración, la viveza de las descripciones y lo breve del conjunto.
La edición está muy cuidada y las notas a pie de página dan un contrapunto excelente al texto original.
Una invitación a conocer más y más de cerca San Salvador y su historia.
