Reviews - What do customers think about Plata quemada (Narrativas Hispanicas) (Narrativas Hispanicas)?

Este libro, basado en un hecho real ocurrido en la localidad de San Fernando, cerca de Buenos Aires, en la década del '60, nos lleva a pensar en la forma en que la literatura a veces recrea la vida, la enriquece, y a veces hace que agradezcamos a ella cierta forma de humilde felicidad. Esta historia verídica, luego filmada en una película bajo el mismo nombre, nos lleva a una Argentina que era rica, poderosa, y hasta influyente, cuando la inteligencia estaba en el Di Tella, y Nacha Guevara, Guido Di Tella y otros personajes de entonces, sobrepasaban -o conectaban bastante- con la inteligencia europea. Un libro para leer.
Passionate thriller  Nov 25, 2001
This passionate thriller combines the criminal events that took place in Buenos Aires in the '60 after the robbery of a bank, and the love story of two of the gangsters, the Nene and the Gaucho, who run away from the police until they are trapped in Montevideo and caught by the police. This is a vivid retelling of the police story - accurately supported by reports and news of the time - and an intense, deep, and emotional love story that will overwhelm the reader. Too much emotion, too much passion... I think it is worth reading a book like this.
