I listen to Spanish audiobooks occasionally to keep up my comprehension, and I find that Audible disappoints in its offering of audiobooks in Spanish. I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging this listen was. This tale of a widower in Uruguay, set in the 1950s, is revealed through a series of journal entries. It offers a glimpse of life in a very different place and time than our own, but I found myself able to relate to the character and his struggles.
I listen to lots of books, and this one never drew me in. The characters didn't come to life, and the ending seemed too tidy. Some of the characters seemed so implausible I couldn't permit the suspension of belief (if I remember the right terminology from high school English) that would have allowed me to enjoy the book.
