    "Mucha miseria en Jamaica"
    Overall

    El libro habla sobre la historia de un doctor que pasa su vida entre los lujos de NY y la pobre Jamaica. Ha hecho mucho por estas personas, sin embargo a nivel familiar ha hecho poco. La narracion es bastante buena. Nuestro protagonista se siente un tanto infalible.
    A nivel medico trata sobre temas relacionados con las enfermedades de los pobres (Tuberculosis), paludismo, etc.
    Es una buena lectura, pesada en unos momentos pues en ocaciones se repite algunos temas.

    The product of research around the globe and interviews with dozens of prominent scientists, God's Equation tells us it is almost as though Einstein were God's mouthpiece, revealing the most fundamental truths about our larger environment, truths scientists are just now confirming.

    Robert says: "More biography than science"
    "Too much bla bla bla"
    Overall

    Es un libro de ciencia, como para publicarlo en Cosmpolitan. Si realemente quieres algo serio puedes leer el cualquier libro de Bill Bryson.

    When Judge Calvin Jeffries is found murdered in a courthouse parking lot, the crime shocks the community, but justice is swift. Soon a second judge is stabbed to death. Attorney Joseph Antonelli agrees to defend the accused. What he discovers challenges everything he knows about crime and punishment...and himself. Also available abridged.

    Michael says: "Buffa's Best"
    "Bueno"
    Overall

    El libro es excelente hasta el 60%, la intriga se maneja muy bien. El autor es muy descriptivo de los ambientes. Se requiere tener buen vocabulario para poder entender todos los ambientes, gestos de la gente, ademanes, etc. Muy bien narrado. No lo pongo excelente, pues con un poco de intuicion puedes adivinar que es lo que va a pasar al final. Sin embargo se puede terminar la lectura sin sentirte que has perdido el tiempo

    La trama es interesante. La forma de llevarlo en bastante inteligente, al final el desenlace es un tanto tipo Hollywood, pero si vas en un auto por varias horas, te pasaras un buen momento en la carretera.

    Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos. Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. Is space an entity? Why does time have a direction? Could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past?

    Martin says: "Space and Time for the Common Man"
    "Good"
    Overall

    Muy bueno, pero es pesado a nivel conceptos. Si te gusta mucho la fisica y las matematicas, este libro es un buen resumen de ambos conceptos. Lo recomiendo solamente si las dos cosas anteriores son de tu agrado. Son mas de 16 horas de conceptos matematicos.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"

    Fabuloso. I must read. I like it. Me gusto mucho.

    Creo que es una buen libro para aprender lo que no se debe hacer. Un hombre interesante pero altamente dual y muchos problemsa de manejo de emociones.

    Acclaimed by the intellectuals of Spain's "Generation of '98," the poems and fiction of Rubén Darío reflect a pride in his country and in his fellow countrymen - many of whom were living in despair and disillusionment. Included here are several poems and the short story, "Huitzilopoxtli," which takes place during the Mexican Revolution and describes the hallucinatory brutality of war. In Spanish.

    Donald says: "Contenido excelente autor sobresaliente"
    "Too slow"
    Overall

    Muy lento. Lectura hecha por algun sudamericano. Si te gusta la poesia tal vez sea una opcion. No pase de 15 minutos.

    There is no detective in fiction as shrewd as Sherlock Holmes, and his adventures with Dr. Watson have delighted readers for more than a century. Read by Germán Robles, this collection features "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," "The Man with the Twisted Lip," and other stories. In Spanish.

    No sabia que Mr. Holmes era cocainomano. Muy bueno, no puedes deter cada capitulo. El audio es un tanto malo, pero pasable. La voz de Watson en muy grave, en algunos casos no se entiende bien por lo que tendras que subir un poco el volumen de tu audio.
